Review: I have had this barrel for a decent amount of time, i got it pretty much as soon as i got my gun. This product has done nothing but positively affect my game.

Accuracy: even though it only has 3 backs you can still get a mighty decent fit with pretty much any paintball. From approximately 20 feet away (my backyard) it is very easy to get ball on ball accuracy with no aid from a rest, just holding the gun and shooting normaly. From this distance the paint splatter is generally within 2-2.5 inches. At the chrony station there is a target about 50 feet away. Without using a rest of any kind i can get all the balls within about a 5-7 inch circle. The grouping would probably be much better if i had a gun with minimal kick but this is with a low end piranha so its pretty friggin good.

Looks: This is a very simple looking barrel, silver back and black front with straight porting and a small amount of milling on the backs. It is nothing extravagant but it is a very appealing barrel. It has a very smart looking Mac Dev jewel on the two fronts.

The only negative things I can think of when it comes to this barrel is that
a) when it is screwed onto your gun it can sometimes be difficult to get a firm hold on especially if you have paint on your hands.
b) If you ever play in a concrete wharehouse be careful as to not bang it as you will most likely dent it. I was playing on an indoor field with just a back so i could play super tight and when i slid on the concrete floor which was very slippery from paint my barrel hit the gorund and got a small dent on the edge. But most people will not do this so ya.
Conclusion: This is a great barrel i doubt u could make one better but it is not *PERFECT* as almost nothing is so it gets a nine.
