Strengths: Barrel is fairly inexpensive when compared to many aftermarket barrels. It is also light. I have fired about 500 rounds from my automag through the barrel so far. Not one break.
Weaknesses: I matched the size of the paint with the diameter of the barrel to try and get maximum accuracy. My shot grouping was all over the place. I put my stock crown point barrel back on and even though it wasn't sized to the paint being shot, was still way more accurate.
Conclusion: Inexpensive and sized for small bore paint is nice but what good is a barrel if you can't get any accuracy. A friend of mine with the same barrel and same gun laughed when I told him about my problems with it. He had the same problem and though it was something he was doing wrong.

In conclusion, I would NOT put this barrel on my purchase list. It really brings truth to the term "spray and pray" (spray balls all over the place and pray some of them go near the target).

Something tells me you don't know how to match paint to the barrel. And I think everyone knows what spray and pray means. You don't have to explain it.

from what you wrote it seems you actually tried to measure out the diameters, dont do that, use ottersccustoms.com and use the barrel chart and the paint chart to match
