Alright well to start off this is the most quiet barrel I ever owned, with my cocker I could barley hear the sound of the barrel. One thing I must note is that I had the pre-2002 model that was a factory glued 2-piece barrel, w/out the fancy milling that they have now and I was stuck with the same back and front price. I say accuracy as a weakness but compared to some other barrel in its price range its less accurate, and it as more of a lob then anything. But thats no biggie you get used to it after a game or 2.
Overall a good barrel, try it our if you have the chance
