Review: This barrel performs great! It delivers accuracy from short AND long ranges, even though it's very small, which allows you to play bunkers very tight. The only downside this barrel has is it's weight. For most people, it's going to weigh about the same as your gun, so I'd reccomend the Aluminum version. But if you're a 'mag person, get the SS, it balances the gun well, especially if you don't have a large drop, and it's more sturdy than the aluminum version.

For woodsballers, I would have it annodized to it's not shiny. Also, use compressed air to keep the noise down. CO2 can make this baby sing.
Conclusion: Great barrel! Performs alongside a Boomstick but for half the cost! Go buy one!
10 out of 10

As this barrel is made out of steel, it cannot be anodised. The anodising process can actually pit steel, and should only be used on aluminium and (with a slightly modified process) titanium - colours that can be applied to titanium are fairly limited.

You could however get a steel barrel "blued" like a commercial firearm. The chemical bluing process can provide a colour ranging from dark blue through to black, or a brown colour. However, these finishes make the surface of the metal more susceptible to rusting, so you need to look after them.
