-Hand guard wiggles
-Paint on barrel scratches
-No allen key or instructions
-Overpriced a little
**Problem with front sight and hand guard staying on;
The front sight fell off all the sudden and it scratched the end of the barrel... then the hand guard fell apart. I found out later that there is a microscopic screw under the front sights sling ring that holds the hand guard together and keeps the sight on the barrel.
So if you buy this make sure you have a small allen key to tighten the front sight on, because it doesn't come with one.
This is a very nice barrel... giving you the looks, performance, accuracy, and distance on your gun, I am highly recommending this barrel to anyone who wants a M4/M16 look added to their gun, as well as performance.
People say this is heavy.. but I don't think it is at all, so don't worry about weight.
The price is just a little high for what you get... but what Ben Tippmann stuff isn't overpriced?
Note to Ben Tippmann: Should put in some instructions on how to put together the front sight and hand guard, also include a allen key to tighten or remove the front sight.
Giving This a 9/10 just because of that and the price of Ben Tippmanns stuff.
9 out of 10
