Review: I got this barrel at the tippmann truck at last years nppl event for the low price of $25! while i really had my heart on getting the 16 inch tippmann sniper i saw this as a 'baby sniper barrel' and it was recommended to me by the lady behind the counter. while some kid told me i should have gotten a 'freak barrel kit' instead,im glad that this was my choice. the first time i used this barrel i played woods ball with it which isn't my style of play i prefer speed ball and im not a good woods ball player either. the barrel did well and i recall no breaks that day..the distance and accuracy was decent while the paint i used was too brittle to make past the twigs and stray leaves on trees. the next week i played speed ball and found my new purchase to do really well with my comp air tank that it shoots probably as straight as some 60 to 100 dollar times id do my lob shots and this barrel is a lobber. i did shop a few times and i had to really squeegee my barrel out good to get the accuracy back as this one isn't a self cleaner. it'll help you arc those shots right over onto the heads and masks of your opponent as i was able to this last month shooting out a player out in the back right can on his forehead and mask. if you are on a budget and love your tippmann,get this barrel that is truly worth the 25 to 30 dollars you'll pay for it.
Conclusion: This barrel is a great value for the money. Its not picky on paint although dont chop and then try shooting it will give you major curves and little straight shots. Ballers on a budget save your money and try this barrel. A good barrel doesnt have to cost more than 60 dollars. Tippmann fanatics get this!

Om you said in your conclusion"although dont chop and then try shooting it will give you major curves", doesn't that happen with every barrel. You chop and then your accuracy will suck... thats why you clean your barrel out with your squeege.
