Review: Well I bought this barrel to replace the stock barrel I had on my e99. The first thing I noticed was that the barrel was about 50% quieter than my original barrel and the groupings were a lot tighter. It made my spyder become much more accurate, and looked pimp. I can say it is quieter and more accurate than the JJ since we tested both these barrels at the same time in a number of tests and we found that the Freak jr. was a lot better barrel. The best part about the freak jr. is that you are basically getting a true freak for a lot less money. The only drawback to this is that you can only get it in black, 14in tip and one insert that is very big bore, but u can easily buy other freak tips and inserts to fix this. The barrel was pretty accurate with large bore paint since it was less affected by the bigger bore tip. When shooting small paint, the tip bore is so big it does almost nothing, and is like shooting a 4 inch barrel. The barrel is fairly good but I personally hate the inserts since they are the most vital part in this barrel and they are made the cheapest! Their homing is not as good as a true solid back, and you can wreck them very easily. I found that the freak has many great fundamentals with the paint to bore match, but the inserts just runes the barrel since they can be in miss-alignment and also can cause many paint breaks. I would have to say that I will never buy the freak for my cocker since I was not that impressed by the freak jr, it was a good barrel, but still I found it to be not on the same level as my kaner barrel. I would say it is a ok barrel but there are many others on the market that fix many of this barrels flaws.

BTW smartparts uses many marketing hypes to sell their stuff to you, donít listen to their spiral porting BS, their barrels are way over ported.
Conclusion: Well as i said before, it is a alright barrel, it gets the job done well, but if you are going to spend the money I would suggest another barrel system such as a pipe, or kaner. I would give this barrel a 7.5, but i had to pick 7 since there are other barrels for the same price that are better

I have the Freak Jr. and after putting in an insert, the accuracy improved dramatically. Maybe you need a better gun. The inserts are not cheaply MADE but they are cheap to buy.

Dispute:
While the barrel may not be the cheapest thing, or the most cost effective, I would dispute the fact that the inserts are cheaply made. Of course something that is adjusting the size of your barrel by thousandths of an inch will be thin and semi-delicate, but it is most definitely NOT cheaply made.
