Not only are the two main guns featuring drilled out barrels, they also have rifling machined into the barrel interiors as well! Our sample was from the preliminary set provided to WingsnTreads and neither the casemate nor machine gun barrels were yet available. These are now in stock on the WingsnTreads website.

My sincere thanks to Wings n Treads ( for this review sample. Check out the other LionMarc as well as other cool aftermarket products that they carry!
