Quality-wise, both Lothar Walther (Germany) and Alfa Precision (Russia) are outstanding, providing reliable accuracy and long-lasting barrels. Taking price differences as a quality indicator might be a mistake here – these variations are rather explained by import and shipping costs. There are some design differences between them you might consider before purchasing your barrel. Alfa Precision barrels lack choke, which means they are suitable for both pellets and slugs, and Lothar Walther barrels come with choke, making them more specialized in pellets. Comparatively, Alfa Precision excels with slugs while can still handle pellets very well, and Lothar Walther barrels excel with pellets.
