Haven't seen them in a while. If you are picking them, I am sure you will discover they can be a bit of a pain.

I heard that these were a bitch, but once you learned to get them they wern't too bad. I heard that serrations gave more of a problem to inexperienced pickers more so then barrels.

Re: "reverse" spools?

i'm not quite sure, but i have my suspicions that barrel pins were designed to thwart bumping attacks (i think they were incorporated in the newer american anti-bump locks, now made by masterlock). can anyone confirm this? has anyone bumped a lock with barrel pins?

ASSA use somthing very similar in there locks over here, usually the cuts are in different positions down the pin and differet size cuts, hope that helps.
