Review: When I recieved this barrel in the mail, it came in a sealed tube with a rubber stopper to keep it safe. I took it out and was amazed. Looking through this barrel you can see the precision of the honing. It was apparent that they took alot of time thinking of what this barrel design would be.

~Accuracy is godly, just hopped the fence, took a shot (a good 50 yards), and hit the upper 90 of a goal post (soccer).

~I didn't chop any ball while feeding or in the barrel, so to expirement I purposly broke a ball in the gun. The results were baffeling. Just a few dry fire shots and its back to about 90% accuracy/distance as before. After that just run a quick squeege through it and its 100%.

~I got a few comments on looks from my friends and my reffing buddy while playing, and that's always cool, even if it's just a barrel.

~one of the best things about this barrel though, is it's not expensive- but it doesn't sacrafice quality either.

~At the fields my friends just messed up in the snake...I had my remote hooked up so i jumped in there to cover him. He saw someone, snatched my gun w/ the remote on it, and marked someone 3 times with it (using only 3 shots total). He has a Piranha R3t or something..and he said my gun setup is amazingly accurate, and i think its because of the barrel.

~I did NOT have a single barrel chop in a whole 8 hours of play and walking the trigger on a spyder w/ a gravity feed 200 rnd hopper. I did get one bolt chop, but again...dry fired once then shot a few times w/ balls (those balls did curve quite a bit) and it was back to awsome accuraccy..

Conclusion: I would recommend this as a starter barrel to anyone wanting a different one than a stock. It's perfect: distance/accuracy, cost, apperance, and dry fire cleaning.

Get this barrel, or save up about $50 dollars for a little bit better one.

Edit is for updates after playing a day w/ this barrel
