Track48 have released this metal replacement barrel for the 88mm PaK 43 L/71 gun as used on the Tiger II and Jagdpanther which consists of a single piece machined brass barrel that includes the muzzle brake.
The barrel is cleanly machined although the muzzle brake is not completely hollowed out with just the gas holes being machined through leaving the top and bottom sections solid but has the barrel is drilled out to a depth of 15mm.
Unfortunately the barrel is way oversized with the length and size of muzzle brake being only marginally smaller than the 1:35 equivalent and as such is basically useless for a 1:48 kit.
Thanks to Track48 for the review set.
