the real saying is 'damascus' barrel

Octaganal barrel
No the real saying is just what he said octaganal Octaganal = 6 sides
Damascus is the type of steel that was used in old firearms. BTW Most damascus barrels are not proofed to shoot modern ammo and can split w/ enough force to injure the shooter if modern ammo is fired in them. Most shotguns and rifles unless they are very high end models didn't have true damascus barrels anyway as damascus barrels are hand made and very exspensive.

From Dictionary.com...
CAPT Bob nailed it!

Octagon = an 8 sided polygon
Hexagon = a 6 sided polygon.

Good call on the materials used in the DANGEROUS Damascus barrels.
