Lets just start this off saying this barrel is very good. I like it better than ceramics AND flatlines. It will make your gun much more accurate and quiet over the stock barrel. The color is very nice, you can get just about any color and in satin or gloss. They come in various bore sizes, which is great if you play w/ only one certain kind of paint. It mounts onto your gun very good and "snug". It is very easy to squeege out a busted ball, which you will hardly ever have to do. Now to the weaknesses. There is not enough porting, so puffs of smoke come out and also into your hopper, but an agitated hopper will definently fix that problem. On occasions it will make balls go off-target. The paint gets easily scratched also. And here is the nit-picky part for me. When I screw it on, the cp logo is upside down, so you can't see it on the side. Oh well, just a pet peeve I guess.
Get this barrel! I would recommend it over progressive, teardrop, and ceramics. It is a tad more expensive (except for the teardrop) but it's worth it.
