Review: The Dye Barrel sock is pretty nice and looks, and how its supposed to "function". I recently tried an expirement with this barrel sock and a supposedly accidental "misfire". first time i fired, i noticed that yellow started to ooze from the front end of the barrel sock , notifying me that the ball indeed broke, when i pulled out the barrel, i noticed that it was still clean, which is a plus. i did another test later to see if it would catch any of the balls. none catched. next came cleaning. this was a pain!! unlike the other rectangular barrel socks which you can easily reverse to clean, this one you cannot. its even hard to remove the ball shell fragments from the little pocket at the tip, since the sock was really narrow. the only way known so far to wash it is through the washing machine... but i don't know if the ball fragments are removed. Overall, when you use this.. make sure that its securely tightened because since the elastic is kinda thin, if its not tightley placed, it can fly off of the barrel
Conclusion: Looks nice and if an accedental "misfire" occurs, it will keep your barrel clean, but if it should happen to fire... make sure that you have enough time to clean it.
