Review: I've started playing Paintball in the late 80's when pump guns ruled. Played with a Bushmaster Deluxe with a stock 14" barrel and kicked some serious butt. But as the older players know once you start to have kids, some things have to be put on the back burner. I gave it up around 94 when the semi's were just starting to come out. Now my son is 13 and he started playing, so dad also got back into it. Sorry I got off topic........

Not only is this barrel very accurate, but it's very quiet. My son and I have the same gun, and he bought this barrel. I am very jealous. This thing is much better than the stock barrel and deadly accurate. He can hit his target consistently, while I struggle to place my shots where I want them. Since I paid for his gun he lets me use the barrel when we play and I'm amazed at the difference in accuracy. This thing also shoots crappy Brass Eagle balls fairly well and the PMI Premiums come out straight as an arrow. I haven't done any formal testing like cluster measurements at 50', 75', or 100', but the true test of a barrel is playability and this thing is awesome.

I did add an o-ring to the threaded area of the barrel which prevents it from backing out. There is a place for one, it's kind of a no brainer.
Conclusion: Buy it if you're on a budget, buy it if you're not! This is my first upgrade, second is a electronic hopper. You can't beat the performance at this price. $45 from a local shop.
