Looks good, light, changeable bores
I mic-ed the bores, all were .001 under. 1 was .003 under
I bought the barrell based on reviews on this page, and i saw the barrel, like the looks, and the quality of workmanship. i brought it home with some junk pj joker paint and it took me the .697 too shoot that stuff. shot darts, but doesnt like odd shaped balls. so i bought some smaller draxxus paint and it shoots them every which way, even when properly bored. it never seems to like the balls. yes...... it doesnt let balls roll out. but so far i havent found a paint that it likes to shoot fast, and straight which is kind of making me mad. dont get me wrong the barrel is awesome in quality. and shoots awesome on my trilogy autococker, but when i put it on my e orracle it shoots like just threw a fistfull of paint at somebody. i like the accuracy of the kaner better but cannot stand roll-outs. i really wish the inserts had a tapered front on them to make the ball sort of fit. but its alright, it works on slow rof guns like a charm.
Id buy an ultralight or kaner setup next time. i payed 170 for this thing and wasnt impressed at all, better than stock yess, would i buy it again. no. but this thing definately looks nice.
Dispute: I have a completely tricked out Ion being fed by a Reloader2 B.
Just this weekend we were messing around. I ripped through 140 balls (counted by hand, we were specifically calculating ROF) in just around 10 seconds.
This was shooting crap paint (really want to do a ROF forest paint job with top shelf paint??) through a Freak that was bored "close enough" so that nothing would get stuck.
I, nor the other two guys with Freaks (both on electro-pneumatics), had any issues with the barrel at all. As fast as we could shoot, it stayed well within an acceptable variance (6-8"...if you are needing more accurate than that with 10+ bps ROF, then you need to move up to firearms I guess) for every single shot.
In fact, of everything that was discussed and messed with (first shot drop off, velocity spikes, etc.) not once was the barrel or accuracy even considered an issue.
This is completely anecdotal and not authoritative at all, but I for one witnessed (as well as shot) several different Freaks RIPPING ropes without a single ball going off target. Not sure what was up with this reviewer's setup or what.
