Review: ~Pros~
- Light
I can't even feel it on my gun
- Quiet
About the volume of a sponge hitting a tree
- Good, non flashy color
Frosted black
- No one has it
This can be either a good or bad thing - It's nice to walk onto a field and know that no
no one has the same barrel as you
- Accurate
Within a six inch radius at fifty feet ( 23/ 30 hit bullseye)
- Self cleaning
This will work better if you have a good bore fit
- Sturdy
Just as strong as most other barrels - Take good care of it anyways
- Inexpensive
Go get a Boomy for 50 bucks more for less performance
- Feels fragile
Don't worry, it isn't *
- Friends want to borrow her
Ahhhhahaaahaah... learn to say no
- .......
Trying to think of something....

*Take good care of her anyways

I feel kinda like a newb, givin' her a 10/10... it's obnoxious, 'cause I couldn't think of anything else wrong.

Also, people say that J&J stuff never comes with an o - ring (not that it's a problem, just get some extras), but mine did... it was in the barrel.
Conclusion: I really love this barrel, and I would suggest you give 'er a try too. Unless you're using something like an Edge or some other high end kit, this is one of the best you can find. I'm not saying that this is the best thing ever, but it's up there.

If you have any problems with her, go ahead and ask me. I would be glad to help.

Good luck.

Would you recommend the J&J for speedball. And if so- what would be better- 12'', 14'' or 16''?

I would reccomend it for speedball. As well as size definetly go for the 12.

your review has helped me very much and i would like to know if you could tell were i could purchase this barrel. Also how much did u pay for it?

Hello all...

Sorry I haven't answered anyone... I haven't been logged on lately.

Anyways, for BushMasterBKO, I would definitely go with either J&J Ceramic for speedball. And, there is not a huge difference between the 12 and 14 inch. Like any barrel, you must choose between a little bit more accuracy or a little bit more bulkiness. Personally I like 14'', especially with J&J Ceramics, because you can hardly feel the barrel on the gun at all anyway. But its up to you, and your preferences.

For rebelneck, I'm glad to know it helped. I bought mine off of the J&J website, but I'm sure you could get one from EBay. Actually, if you asked your local paintball shop owner, I'm sure he could order one in for you. As for the price, I payed about 60$ for it; not at all a bad deal. If you could find one somewhere else, more power to you, but I couldn't.

Whatever you all decide, good luck

I accidently clicked innapropriate comment on Halowolf's comment, and i apolagize to him if it affects him in any way. Sorry :P. Great review aswell very thorough.

For the whole ceramic durability questions... Ceramics are the same thing we use as body armour in the US Army, now honestly who can argue with that?;)

mattwbr Tuesday, May 20th, 2008 | 4:05 pm PST
I use mine for speedball in 14"
its a little long so I mite go with a 12" if you want
I have an A-5 and there was 1 o-ring in between the two halves...should there be another between the barrel and gun?

More accurate than the boomstick?

My Boomstick can shoot in a perfectly straight line at up to 70 feet....
