Marker Setup: Autococker
Strengths: Quiet. 5 variable bore barrel breech inserts available.
Weaknesses: Expensive. Not the cheapest way to first rate accuracy.
Review: Bought Hammerhead years ago when first introduced, and then got their latest "second generation" barrel with stepbore barrel tip few months ago. Bought for "Scenario" games where you sometimes must use poor paint. I needed a variable bore system for my Autococker to handle paintballs that would run down the barrel and give bad chrono readings. No marker firing from "open bolt" needs "Hammerhead" or any other expensive variable bore system. My "Hammerheads" deliver accuracy no better and no worse than my Dye, J&J, and Lapco barrels. They are as quiet as quiet gets. My "Hammerheads" can chamber and shoot poor quality paint as well or better than my other "premium" barrels. Hammerhead does not handle ball break better than any other barrel, but seems to handle a little slime and keep shooting fine. My autococker tech and many others compare Hammerhead to Armson and other rifled barrels that did not live up to "hype", but myself and a lot of very experienced players think they are as accurate, and probably quieter than other premium barrels. Given the cost, "silence is golden". First "Hammerhead" bought years ago had minor quality issues, latest version is perfect.
Conclusion: Hammerhead is not a bunch of "hype", it is a well made variable bore system about as accurate, maybe quieter, and maybe more expensive than other "premium" barrels.
