I agree.
The original penalty was a bit much.
This here works better.
I also feel like rifles barrels should be a unit heavier then the common barrel, since peaple are more likely to replace all there barrels with them otherwise, and that would be easy if there weight was that of the standard barrel.

A slight increase in weight would be good as well. 25-30% heavier or have separate penalties.

For instance, they could take longer to repair once destroyed or cost quite a bit more material in the first place.

I can see that working.
Ill look up to see if theres any real life downsides to rifling.
The only one I aware of the top of my head is if the shell or bullet or whatever your firing is spinning too fast it can damage the bullet considerably.
After looking all I found was what I already know and stated above this line.
Quote:Excessive rotational speed can exceed the bullet's designed limits and the resulting centrifugal force can cause the bullet to disintegrate radially during flight
(From wikipedia, but I already knew it from other sources so its likely correct)

So im thinking we could have a max shell accuracy boost from number of rifle barrels before the shell just stops working correctly?
