Review: After going to a Liberty big game with this barrel new, i put it to the test, I cleaned the gun, oiled it, had everything ready to go. This barrel ran laps around the stock barrel.

Length-I personally like the length because for me, 14" is great because its not so long that when you move around, it becomes annoying, and its long enough to get you the distance and accuracy you need.

Accuracy-Well, although I've only used the stock in comparison, this barrel is great, after playing out on the field that day, i got quite a few people out, some at over 80ft. without a problem.

Paint Picky?-So far, it hasn't been at all, I used some white box trash from a local place and they shot great, I got no breaks, and they all got relatively great distance and accuracy. I also used Origin paint from liberty and those too worked great, not a single break in the 2000 I fired at liberty that day.

Self Cleaning- This barrel did a great job at self cleaning from what I've seen so far. I tripped a couple times on some roots and my barrel would end up with 3 inches of dirt inside, well all it took was 1 shot and it was as if there was never any dirt in the barrel, I forgot my squeegee that day, just to show you that its not like I cleaned it in between the fights.

Scratching- Well, I do understand I have not had this barrel for a long time, but the day at liberty I must've knocking my barrel into a hell of a lot of rocks, I expected honestly for the barrel to be scratched, but it came out unscathed. The outside looks still brand new after cleaning off some debris.
Conclusion: I do understand that this is not the best barrel out there, but for the price, it is EXCELLENT. I paid $40 after shipping for this barrel, and it was worth every penny. It exceeded my expectations and lives up to the test I put it through. I recommend this barrel strongly for a person on a budget, that loves paintball!
