Review: I have had this barrel for 2.5 years and the only time I had a paintball break in it was when my friends and I decided to try playing a game in the middle of a Michigan winter at 25F. The ball broke and froze in my barrel but hot water got it out. Never had a ball break in it during the Summer, Spring, of Fall. Never. Also looks really sweet on the inside and very clean. For the 2.5 years that I have owned this barrel I had to clean it twice including the winter game. The last game I played last week, one of my friends wanted to use my barrel (he has a bone stock 98 custom) for a game and when he first shot he was amazed at how much more accurate the barrel was over stock. He was on a different team then me and he sniped me out from about 65-75 feet away right on the shoulder but the ball didn't break. I didn't even know where the shot came from because it made his 98 so much more quiet. If that first ball did break on my shoulder then I would have been sniped by my own barrel. Since that first ball didn't break he shot again and I then knew where he was and I rushed him and got shot in the process, right in the mask. Later after the game I asked him how he thought the barrel was. He replied "I aimed for your shoulder and I hit your shoulder on the first shot, I love this barrel" then of course I asked for it back. For owning this barrel for 2.5 years and only breaking one ball in that amount of time is very good. I play every weekend too not once a month or something like that. VERY GOOD BARREL, EMPIRE DID GOOD ON THIS ONE.
Conclusion: Excellent sniper barrel, quiet, fast shooting, good price too $55 although that was 2 years ago. For the 98 Custom incredible difference over stock. Highly recommend this barrel
