I have heard almost nothing about this barrel but the reviews were good so I wanted to try it out. I found out they just cam eout with a new modle (no muzzle break check out my pic at the top here) and price is great so I got one, I must say this barrel looks great, I love it and the porting is great to keep my gun quiet (well quiet as a 98 can get anyways) so it still sounded like a tank.. but at least it wasnt a tank in need of a tuneup...
anyways the barrel looked great but how did it shoot, I have been using my werks and empire kit for a while now but I must say this was great. Im prolly gonna just sell my empire kit because this is all I need. it shoots darts! accuracy is amazing and I played yesterday in the snow/rain (was 0 degrees so it was more liek wet snow) anyways no breaks at all! not all day and I fired prolly 1000 rounds. they all went very straight and i was very impressed. bore size is great for most brands, its not huge and not tiny, medium so most paint will fit. spank worked great (expecially for economy paint)
Oh yes, also in the listing here it sais 14". but it comes in 12" 14" and 16"
*update march 14th 2007*
After having this barrel for a bit longer I am only more impressed with it, I actually bought a second one lol, I put a apex on a 12" version which is amazing and gives me not only pinpoint accuracy but great range as well.
then I have a 14" that I use as a standard barrel with no mods. which is fantastic. I have shot many types of paint and for the most part its all great, obviously a smaller spread if you use paint to match your bore but even with seconds accuracy was supprising compared to other barrels. my current 2 are on my Tippmann 98 but I will be getting one as soon as I buy my A5 making 3 I have total, unless I can fidn an adapter for teh a5 cheep so I can just use these 2,
I am also having many requests from people who see these in action for where they can be purchased, they are not well known and are rather low hype barrels but thats great because I dont feel like a clone and I get a much better price then on a name brand barrel for the same if not better performance. They go on ebay for $30
Barrel looks great, Fires great, is cheep/ what else do you need?
10 out of 10
