Re: How short is too short? Will this damage my barrel ?

Mine does. No clue why (still has stock rubber which seem a bit too long). It's my spare gun though, only used it once and didn't get around fixing it yet. 115 Sniper

My carbon laser has lead weights attached to the muzzle. When you take off the muzzle the weights are screwed into the end. you can remove the weights when you put in a heavier shaft. Not sure if the same applies to the aluminum version.

Re: How short is too short? Will this damage my barrel ?

I don't want the gun to float with the shaft on. I just want it to be neutral or sink sligthly. What I don't want is to fight it with my wrist to keep it horizontal the whole time.

For the same gun, usually aluminum tubes will be heavier than their carbon counterparts, so it might be very well possible to have the carbon version ballasted while the aluminum one is not. Carbon should allow to use heavier shafts removing ballast but the price goes up.
