Review: I've actually been using this barrel for about a month and a half, but that's not on the menu. There's not really much to say about this. It's a decent barrel and looks really cool...but it also has a $100-120 price tag. Unless you are just dying to get the AK look, get something else. If you must buy an expensive barrel, get a flatline.
Conclusion: This average barrel is not worth the above average price.
Rating:
5 out of 10

How well made is the barrel itself in comparison to say the Smart Parts Progressive? I've been kind of looking at this barrel lately hoping it was of good quality, because well, I like holding my marker from the barrel and the AK look definantly appeals to me. So if you can let me know this it would be of great help. Thanks!

I'd say it's about on the same level with the Progressive as far as accuracy and range goes. I'd had a bit of trouble with the grip wanting to come apart mid-game on me, but that was just because the screws just loosened up on me after using the thing for 2 months. I've tightened them up again, and haven't been having problems. Hope this helps!
