Review: Well, I finally broke down and got myself an aftermarket barrel. After hearing all of the great reviews about the Ceramic I decided to give it a try and I'm glad I did. The barrel is WAY more accurate than my pathetic stock barrel, and it gets better range too. It isn't as quiet as I expected, and it came with a bunch of gunk on the inside, but after cleaning it up it shot fine! I can also vouch for it's self cleaning feature. After shooting a pile of super cheap paint I was finally able to get a barrel break only to find that the barrel was perfectly clean and dry. No subsequent dry shots were needed to fully clear the barrel! Needless to say, the self-cleaning feature worked better than advertised! As I mentioned, people who are thinking of buying this barrel because it's supposedly dead quiet will be disappointed. While the barrel is slightly less noisy than stock, it's still quite loud, which is to be expected from any system that relies on rapidly expanding gas for it's propulsion. Also, the barrels finish IS very scratch-able, revealing the silver aluminum core. However, if one is careful with it it shouldn't be much of a problem.
Conclusion: In conclusion, this is an awesome barrel for the price. It works exactly as advertised and it truly is self-cleaning. It's not as quiet as it's made out to be, but it IS quieter than stock, and it's considerably more accurate. I gave it a 9 due to the gunk that came in it.
