Review: I bought this barrel kit for my PMR after finding it in a local paint ball shop. I had been looking around at a freak back and more inserts to match my marker, because I already owned a tip and one insert. i found the freak to be more pricey, roughly (60 dollars for a new back and 20 dollars per insert.) so for five inserts and a back, i was looking at spending 160 dollars. The kit was sitting in the back of the shop kind of out of the way, and i inquired about it, having read good things on the internet. Sure enough there was a sale on it, and i walked out of the store with a new auto cocker threaded barrel kit.

The case- Fairly sturdy, good zippers, looks nice and protects the barrels. no problems here

The Barrel- itself looks very nice, no dings on it as would be expected, the threads are very well done, no trouble threading the backs and tip together what-so-ever. (Ive found my freak jr. to have a slight problem threading together with the tip and back.) Also the paint job is very tough, no scratches from crawling through 150 meters of buck brush (long story). I have found the included 14 inch tip to be a little long for some situations.

When shooting this barrel I immediately found it to be lighter than my freak, and a little bit quieter. With a proper bore size paint ball, which is the point of the kit/ all kits it is very accurate. The bore sizes cover a wide amount of todays paint balls they are .681,.684,.687,.690,.693,.696

Cleaning- The first time I used this barrel, i fired some cheap paint balls that were laying around my house from a few weekends ago. Some had expanded slightly and i had put on a too small of bore. Resulting in a jam/ really not fun mess. I ran my squeegee through once, and the barrel was clean. Another time,a broken ball resulted from a turning of the eyes off and a to slow hopper i did find that the porting on the tip is slightly small and has a tendency to trap the paint very well, but not let it out.This barrel wont really let you shoot a break out.
Conclusion: I am very impressed with this kit. i purchased it for cheap, one of the best upgrades/accessories Ive bought for my PMR (minus a trigger).
i have found one slight disadvantage over the freak however, and that is if you have more than one marker with more than one thread, changing tips and bores isn't as easy. If you already own the bores for the freak and a tip, all you need is a new back. With this kit, you either need to find a after market thread adapter or buy a new kit.
Overall if you can find this kit, check it out before you buy something else, i am very happy with mine and do not have any regrets.
An almost perfect product, the fact that you can't shoot breaks out and it only came with one tip drops it to a 9
