Review: At first, I was going to compare the barrels accuracy against ultralite, boomsticks, stiffi's, etc. Only to find out that this barrel comes close in accuracy. To test the accuracy I used some pointblanks( which I recommend because the paint to barrel match is perfect!) and went to the park and started to shoot at the tree. The first test was about 40 feet away and hit the same spot 10/10 times. from 80 feet away I hit the same spot 7/10 times. The last test was 95 feet which hit again 7/10 times. The gun was shot from a prone position.( I looked stupid while doing it because autocockers dont have that "scenario" look to them) But I was still considering that maybe the autocockers accuracy, the cp regulator, and the paint to barrel match still had an effect on the consistency from shot to shot. But then again the stock barrel was consistent but not as consistent as a cp.

just a little side note*

distance and accuracy is different! changing a barrel does not increase the distance the ball will travel!(except the apex) Just the consistency of where the balls go from shot to shot!
Conclusion: All in all this is a good barrel but if you want that teeny bit more of accuracy, then buy either an ultralite, stiffi, or a boomstick. They're only a teeny bit more consistent then the cp's.
