Review: If you read any review, make sure you read this one!!!

The truth to this barrel system is, it is a little more expensive, but you get a VERY nice set of tubes for your gun!

Myth of barrels getting stuck on your gun or being hard to get off... TRUTH... HOWEVER,
Im guessing the people without Orings on their barrels are having this problem. I have Orings on my Kaner kit and they come right off with ease no matter how hard i tighten them. So i was reading reviews and i saw people were having trouble, sure enough, i took my orings off of one of my backs and boy was it one of the hardest things to get off!! If you want easy on and easy off... make sure you have Orings on back threading of the barrels! This will ALSO help the barrels from coming untwisted during the game!

The lengths... They are awesome! Even with the freak kit, you dont get the different length choices right out of the box! You have 12, 14, and 16in lengths with the Kaner Kit! Along with .682 .684 .687 .689 and .691 backs!

One weakness (this may be anal) is that the barrel kits are not easily found. Said by another person who wrote a review... "Find them on Ebay" There is truth in that statement. They are VERY rare!

As far as shooting capabilities... they are VERY quiet! Even the lowest rated review will tell you that!! As far as accuracy, the people that had trouble, it was probably their gun that was giving them trouble. Notice when they switched guns they had better luck. I own a Karnivor and the barrels work great with it! As far as other guns... i have no idea, but it would be a safe bet that most of the very high end guns will like this barrel kit! Also, make sure you use Nitro/Compressed Air/HPA or whatever you want to call it. Not CO2. That will work against you. If you break balls, its usually not your barrels fault unless you put on the wrong bore size. I would either recommend a faster hopper, or make sure if you have an anti chop eye, it is set up correctly. Then you will have no problems!

If you want to talk about paint chipping... take care of your barrels... everything scratches... almost nothing is scratch proof. I have had no scratches on my barrels and have been pretty rough on them during play. Take care of your equipment.

As of right now... the barrel kit comes in a very nice padded case! When i received mine, they did not come in a case. But most of the ones on Ebay do have the case with them.

Conclusion: Overall great barrel system.
A Little Pricey
Great options
And Nice Looking!

Co2 doesn't promote chopping man :) Improper paint to barrel match does that (assuming bore breaks here). I shoot Co2 just fine on my mechanical Autococker at 11bps all day. And our Shutter hits 13bps with the Sprint frame on Co2 with no breaks what so ever :)

High end guns will not use CO2. They can, but if you get firing fast enough you will freeze up your gun. However, you are right. Your guns will be able to use CO2. But not a superstock or Karnivor with e1 or e2. It will chop like mad on a high end electronic gun with CO2. I have seen it personally and done my research.

Oh I know :)

Some of the older markers are ok with it still. My Excalibur has instructions for running it on Co2. All one needs to do is dual regulate the Co2 with a Palmer's female Stabilizer as the first reg :)

I've yet to try it on the Excalibur, but I dual regulate on my Autococker and at 12bps the bottom of the Sidewinder (the 2nd reg), gets only a tiny bit cool to the touch.

The only reason electros can't tollerate Co2 is the 'noids not being built for it. I suspect if you used some higher quality 'noids that were made to handle Co2 and other cold situations, you could probably use dioxide just fine :)

Besides, who wants to use an E2 anyway when the Raceframe is SO much more comfy *grin* LOL :D
