Review: I went down to my local proshop because I had my mind set on a new Apex barrel for my A-5 but when I got there the guy there said that the Apex could be a bother to fine tune. Besides, it was way too expensive for me. He recommended this smart parts 16 inch barrel. I had never heard of it but its cool design intrigued me. The best part was when the guy said this thing went for only 35 bucks! I was sold. I rushed home with my new barrel and went to work unattaching the flatline that was on my A-5 at the time and attaching the new barrel. I had no good paint around the house but managed to find some 3 year old white box lame paint from before I went to my first game. Some of the balls were sun-bleached and deformed but I popped them into my hopper anyway and went outside to test it. Tying a little buoy to a tree I made a makeshift target and stood about 80 feet away. It shot straight as a ruler. Even from a standing position with nothing to rest my gun on it shot dead on. I shot a couple out into the lake and they went so far out there wasn't even a splash. I shot it from the hip and bullseye. Out of the fifty or so old balls I shot only one broke. I was surprised, these balls should be breaking in the gun left and right. It was a little hard to clean the paint out of the barrel holes but it wasn't impossible. The bottomline is this marker is brilliant and for a dirt cheap price. I would have paid double the price for such a accurate barrel. Snipers will love it. I am and I do. Just try to bring a battle swab with you into a game or you may end up having to remove your barrel to clean it.
Conclusion: Awesome. accurate, stealthy, really cheap, cool design, quiet, perfect. I can't wait to test it in a game. Even with 3 year old demented paint it will still give you one shot and one kill.
10 out of 10
