ANY paint, the bore is .690 i mostly use GameFace Impacts because they break on contact. I did use Karnage from the brown box. Shot pretty good too
Looks, accurate, bore size, quiet, comes in a case for storage.
I got this barrel at first as a backup to my JJ S2. but after firing the S2 for awhile, i noticed that the balls would knuckle every few shots. that got me fustrated. so i read up on this barrel and gave it a try. my god it shoots straight!! the porting and length is absolute perfect. between the S2 and Proto, both are fairly decent barrels for the price, 30 some odd dollars depending where you get it. i have not broken a single paint with this barrel so im not sure about cleaning, only running water through it when im done. with the bore size being .690, you can shoot anything without worrying too much about ball size.
Though the barrel itself is shiny and might give away position, its not that glaring. Also , the barrel is light since its made out of aluminum. compared to the S2, both FEEL the same, could be off by a few ounces.
Shooting wise, this barrel shots ropes. well straight ropes but at least a good grouping.
20 feet, a grouping about 4 inches
40 feet, a grouping about 6-8 inches
60 feet, a grouping about 1 feet
Shooting at a 4x4x8 wood pole from 35 feet, hit one out of 4 shots, though the 3 were VERY close.
In conclusion-Get this barrel if you are low on $$ or just cheap. you can't go wrong with this. i would give this a 9 because again like my other reviews, nothing is perfect but it is there for its price
