Paintballs:
Just about anything. Just steer away from bargain Walmart paint and you'll be alright. Not very forgiving when it comes to lumpy paint. Use fresh stuff.
Strengths: - Accuracy
- Intimidation effect
- Durability
- Reliability
- Moderately loud
Weaknesses: - Length, takes practice
- Cant really shoot it clean
- Body size (explain below)
Review: I've been using the 20" Tactical for a little over 6 months now on a BT-16 and love the results.
- Accuracy at a distance is greatly improved over the stock barrel. Variance between shots can be measured in inches at a distance of 110 feet with decent paint and no breaks. A good backman on the speedball court can destroy the other team on the break.
- Performance is comparable to a stock 98 w/flatline, only the accuracy is better. It's much longer then standard barrels, so you have to get used to the length, but for $40, can't beat the results.
- If you prefer one shot/one kill, this is an excellent choice. Laying down paint? Great until you have a break. Difficult to clean on the field, but easy compared to cleaning a flatline.
- The milsim appearance of the barrel makes it very difficult to put a M-16 style handguard on it. The back end ridges are larger then standard diameter fittings.
Conclusion: An excellent woodsball or speedball barrel. Accurate, affordable, never suffers a scratch no matter what you throw at it, and intimidating to other players. Beats other single piece barrels solid.
