I have a MP5 that is going to need a new barrel.

I noticed the HUGE price difference between the US vs B&T barrels.

Does anyone know why is there such a price difference. Is the swiss one that much better in quality?

I'm not 100% sure but the B&T barrels most likely come from the same factory as the HK barrels. Just because B&T is written on them doesn't make them Swiss made. I'm not sure because B&T doesn't sell the MP5 barrels in Switzerland but I think the barrels aren't marked "Swiss made". There are clearly defined conditions when you're allowed to mark any products "Swiss made". B&T barrels most likely don't meet these conditions because B&T doesn't make barrels themselves as far as I know.

Smaller production quantities make them more expensive. But in any case, the B&T barrels are of better quality than the US made ones.
