Review: When i got this barrel kit, i was so stoked of using it, so i brought my equipment to my friends house( he has a 63 yard back yard, so thats a great thing for "paintballers").

So after we got setup, i noticed that my marker was unbalanced now(no more aluminum/ss combo barrel), but thats nothing to worry for me, considering how i play.

I took out my RadarChron and chrono'd rather consistantly.

Next thing i realized, is that the barrel is rather quiet, more quiet than all the other barrels i tried.

Shooting from 60 yards at a 2x2' wet board(to make the wood more absorbant, so we dont make a loud racket when paintballs hit the board) we had consistant 20/20 groupings throughout. Next we tried some older paintballs(Zap Spanks), and still had consistant 20/20groupings. We then setup some boards that were 2x4, 3x3, and another 2x2 board 63 yards away. The Result? 20/20 on target, about 1/16 inch wider groupings on all 3 boards set 63 yards away.

Throughout the day, we were having a little battle-off, with my 2k3 'cocker against his 2k4 'cocker. Out of 20 games and 1000 paintballs wasted(from both cases), i won by two games.

My friends setup:
2k4 pewter vertical autococker
WGP Kaner barrel kit
CP inline regulator
Kapp F.A.T. ram
Palmer's Pursuit Rock Regulator(LPR)
WGP All Delrin bolt
Conclusion: From my experience, this is top of the line. From my friend's point of view, it is top of the line. We both had great results with the barrel kit, if you want to, try it out, i doubt you will have a bad experience with it.
