Review: I bought a 14" Gloss Silver barrel for my PM7. On a digital postal scale, I found it just as light as the 12" stock barrel on the PM7. I only used it on the PM7 for a day, then the barrel went on my ETek after that.

Out in the field, I had no problems and no breaks with WPN Weapons Grade paint, which runs .688 to .689 in fair San Diego weather. The bore of this barrel is .690. The paint to barrel match with my ETek brought consistency down to +/- 1 fps, with occasional spikes of +/- 5. With the ETek stock barrel with .693 bore, consistency was +/- 5, with occasional spikes to +/- 7.

This barrel has a solid feel to it. It cleans easily with water. It threads smoothly into my PM7 and ETek.
Conclusion: For the price and quality you get from a Dye/Proto product, I recommend this barrel if you are shooting .688 to .689 size paint.
