The stock Shadow barrel is amazing!!!
Far exceeds ARMSON, 32 Degree Night Stick and Quite Riot barrels
Strengths: Very fast shooting, stunningly accurate, solid, quick cleaning, MADE IN THOMASTON CT, USA!!!
Weaknesses: None
Review: I also reviewed the Factor X2, both made by the Schrager Brothers.

I cannot say enough about the Shadow and Factor X2 markers.

The Shadow is a solid, quaity machined from billet stock marker. No cheap "White metal" parts on this baby! This feels more like a real firearm than paintball marker.

The cleaning is the same as a traditional Spyder marker except everything fits so smoothly. The valve and hammer assembly are slick!!
The ports are honed and polished, assembly is quick and easy.
The feel is pure quality.

The gas efficiency is remarkable. I can play all day on a 20 oz tank. I often end up draining the tank with a lot left after playing with the Shadow.

The stock barrel is one of the Shadow's many strengths.
Having a good ball to bore match is always a good thing. This barrel shoots whicked accurate using Diablo Dusk and Inferno paints, rediculus distance shots.

I would just shoot to annoy the other team at what I would normally consider too far and make one shot hits.
Conclusion: I would highly recomend the Schrager Brothers Shadow from advanded player to newbie alike.

This baby is made right here in the USA!!!

When you have a fully loaded Shadow in your hands, it feels like an extention of your arm. It shoots faster than any electo marker I've seen. I'm no pro player but I can crank out more paint and with greater accuracy with my stock Shadow than most of the players using electro markers.

They are worth every penny!!

I've owned a shadow for 2 years now and love it. I also own an impulse...I will use my shadow over the impulse any day. It is a well built marker and very upgradable. I put an electric trigger on and and have no problem out shoot the e99. You can go to the schrager brothers web site and find the retailers.
