Thanks Simon. I thought it looked particularly well made so must be a good make.

Default Barrel

I'm no expert but I've been trying to identify the square barrel on my "Hawkstone", and based on that I'm not sure it's a Marcelle. If you Google "Marcelle Barrel" and click "Images", the ones pictured do not have a vertical slot in the barrel fins back near the inlet manifold. Also the information I have found suggests that the inlet manifold should have a 3 bolt fixing.

It's possible that this is a later version of the Marcelle barrel of course.
