Review: Well, this was the first barrel kit I got for my autococker, and I definately was not dissapointed.

Build: The barrel is obviously made out of carbon fiber, and is extremely light. Some people say they wouldn't want this because it might break, but I assure you, this will not break. And if it does, Site mfg will replace it for free.

Accuracy: If you have a good paint to bore match, this think is killer accurate. It seems to me like it's better than my freak kit. The downfall is that it only has 4 bore sizes, while the freak has 9.

Price: An expensive barrel kit, more than a full freak kit, but I thought it was worth it. Where I don't think it's worth it though, is if you want a different barrel thread, it's going to cost 80-100 bucks. For a new freak back, 40. Big difference.

Misc: If you have an autococker, this kit is definately a lot easier to use than the freak. The freak can be hard to get off the gun (I had to buy a small oil filter wrench). With the stiffi, the bores have holes in them, and you can give it a tug with an allen wrench and it comes right off.
Conclusion: One point off for only 4 sizes, but it gets it back with autococker owners for ease of use. Another point off for being so expensive for new threaded backs. Bottom line, great barrel kit, but it's up to you between the freak and the switch kit.
