Review: I was sick of using my brother's barrels for my viewloader so i went and found this and bought it. It was probably the best investment i made for the gun. The barrel is super accurate at close and long ranges. This is easily the best single piece barrel i have ever used, even though i would like to try the evil driver. Doesn't get much better than this for the money. It isn't super loud or anything, but it definately isn't as quiet as the progressive, but i got it for accuracy cause the viewloader is loud anyways. I was dissapointed though cause when i chopped a ball (stupid gravity feeds) the barrel needs to be swabbed or u can't even guess where the ball is going.

A very good barrel for the money.
Conclusion: If you are the average player looking not to spend a ton of money on an accurate barrel, look to get one of these. I am going to give it a 9 because even though it has the noise and cleaning weaknesses, the price and accuracy makes up for a lot of it. I would definately recommend this barrel.
