6 months
Products Used:
smart parts all american (for my mag)
stock dragun barrel
Marker Setup: 2004 Dragun "The One" Empire barrel kit, PB bullet drop forward, Bob Long Torpedo Reg, Macroline, Shock Tech Superfly timmy bolt, Dragun ultralite trigger, HPA, pressure is at about 200 psi. Halo B with rip drive.
anything good and round
Strengths: different bores
good looking
Weaknesses: out of the 4 pc, i got 2 flawed backs. bad shoot thru breaks
Review: well...where do i start? the kit looks great and its cheaper than the 11pc and the freak but i wish i woulda gotten a good allaroudn barrel like another all american....i dunno.

i get the kit in, lightly screw the .691 barrel back on, and Wait a minute, it just jammed! it jammed so tight i had to get it sent out to get the barrel back off! no lie! and im not dummy, it wasnt crossthreading, and the threads were clean. (im a mechanic)so since that barrel back doesnt work i use the next one down .689 i think. well guess what...? after having about 1/2case of paint break through my barrel, i finally saw the next day that the barrel bore had TWO flat spots in it! ugh! so the barrel backs are used now, how can i return them? im saving up and getting a pipe or freak, maybe freak jr. i know that i just got a flawed system, but everyone else is saying the same thing, doesnt shoot through breaks as well as it should, and comes with a 14 inch tip out of the box......sorry, if i wanted to sword fight, i'd bring a sword, not make my gun as lengthly!
Conclusion: from my experience, i'd like to melt them down for scrap, but it seems to be a 50/50 rep around here......sounds to me like somebody needs to fire the quality control guy down at empire.

I have this kit on my "The One" also and most of the ball breaks on yours could have been the eyes screwing up (cause the stock eyes suck) cause I had to switch to some custom eyes after seeing pleanty of ball breaks and I havent had a break since.

you were probably chopping because you had the wrong bore sized balls and/or barrels backs fitting to big or small

Hey smart one.....why don't u check into the problems u are having before u review! When u give a great product a bad review just because you broke it or your gun sux, you make the score of the item drop considerably and make people look down upon it!

Yea, these barrels rock, I think you should contact them before you go ahead and scrap em. I also heard that they fixed the quality control.
