CP one piece barrel (very similar to the performance of this barrel
Tippmann A5 with 16 inch CP barrel
Tippmann 98 with:
Remote air coil
BT fixed sight rail
Looks-looks super cool
Price-looks nice but the retail is about 100 bucks, try ebay
Another review said it was made out of cruddy plastic-the barrel shroud is polymer, but it is really strong and seemingly hard to break. It is easy to take apart, just remove the fron iron sight part and the back part which holds the shroud on and take the shroud off. I am sorry, but this is in no way a complicated task and you would really need to be an idiot to not be able to figure out how to do this. This is by no means a tournament grade barrel but it is good for rec and woods ball and works very effectively. It achieves its main purpose-looks.
I give this product a 10 because i like it and it looks really cool. It performed exactly like I expected it would. However, if you want a m16/m4 look and a top of the line tournament performing barrel i have another suggestion, which is to buy a good barrel and a m4/m16 barrel shroud not including the barrel from another company such as ERA or OPSGEAR. If you are looking to achieve Milsim looks and arent incredibly concerned with having a topoftheline barrel (i give the actual barrel a B or B+) This is the product for you!
