Review: This barrel is off a 99 STO i think, it could be another STO year, i don't really know. I've always loved the STO cockers and thought it would be cool to add a piece of one to my new Trilogy cocker. I got this barrel for $25 from my local shop, so it was an excellent buy. The accuracy is quite good with this barrel. The STO was made for speedball (STO stands for Special Tournament Operations), so it does really well in a speedball setting. Its very accurate out to about 90 ft, then you get some curve and minor drop. The range was increased a little bit over my stock 14", but not much. The barrel looks beautiful. It has a stainless back and an aluminum front with the WGP logo on the aluminum section. It is a classic two-piece (glued). People often comment on the barrel because it looks like a boomie, just with a WGP logo on it.
Conclusion: If you can find one of these I'd highly recommend getting it. Not only is it a good barrel, but it has a history to it and will be sure to elicit comments from any veteran at your local field. Also, this is a barrel that isn't the norm. All I see at fields nowadays is boomies and Freaks, if you want something different that performs just as well, get one of these you won't be disappointed.
