This barrel is not paint picky however cheap paint is not recommended.
Accurate, Very well made, Looks, Price!
None so far.
I was looking for a long barrel and I thought about the Opsgear Interceptor barrel but looking for a longer barrel I came across the Smart parts Tactical. I must say that it was a difficult decision. I considered all the good reviews about both of them and in my opinion the money factor was decisive. I had mine trough a friend who bought it in phoenix for about 39 bucks plus tax I was also considering the Apex barrel (which I got now but need to try more to give an honest review) but after more than 6 months I really believe the purchase was a well worth one, I mean, it exceeded my expectations, I use it with a red dot scope and it's pretty accurate I can place my paint in a small place at a decent distance 40 to 60 meters (131- 196 feet ) It's an excellent option for those looking for as much as possible for every dollar, I mean it! this is a great barrel, I have read many reviews mentioning that one of the weaknesses of it, is that it is too long..... well I think that you can't complain about that if you went for more than 18", right? I still want to give a try to that Opsgear one but until I can afford it I will happily stick with the tactical.
All in all this is a great barrel I would recommend it specially with a stabilizer or at least an expansion chamber because it would increase the consistency and accuracy.... it is also necessary to mention that the lenght increased the Fps so I had to tighten the screw at least two full turns but that is no big deal.

the opsgear interceptor barrel has been discontinued for about 6 months or so if not more. i have one, but it was one of three that was shipped to a dealer close to where i live some time before opsgear stopped making that barrel all together.
they still make the M82A1 barrel that you can buy with a barret kit for an A-5, but its the exact same thing but it has 4 divots going across the entire length of the barrel.(its just for looks) the hitman barrel (if its still available) was the barrel that replaced the interceptor, but its got those same divots, but they are white. that barrel came out because the movie hitman came out. check the barrel description on opsgear.com, it will probably say there if they still make that barrel.
also with the interceptor, its a large inside bore barrel. anything smaller than at least .685 or possibly even .687-.688 or so will fly left and right past maybe 25 feet from the gun. i know cause that happens to me. but if you do get a chance to buy the interceptor, go for it. its a great barrel, but buy large bore paint!
i have yet to try nelson anarchy(.692) with my interceptor barrel.
