Review: Before I heard about the Scepter, I was using a freak because I believed that the insert system was the most cost efficient way to go, allowing many bores with a single barrel.

When I first received my freak however, I was dissapointed that the inserts were held in place using 2 O rings. When looking down the front of the barrel, I found that it was near impossible to perfectly line up the Barrel front with the insert in the barrel back.

It was a far cry from the perfection that was my Lapco Snapshot.

Then I heard about the Scepter kit, and how they used the front to screw into the back and lock the inserts into place. I did some research, and found that MANN from pbnation also did a huge test on many barrels and found the scepter to be superb.

With all the great reviews, and tests done, I decided to purchase a kit. To my surprise, I was able to find a 7 insert kit on Ebay for 100 dollars brand new.

The kit has yet to let me down, and I feel like the standard of quality over at Powerlyte is above many barrels I've used before.

Accuracy was top notch, barrel seemed pretty quiet on my Ego, and the anno is high quality and flawless.
Conclusion: I reccomend this barrel kit if you can afford it. It is handsdown the best insert based kit available.
10 out of 10
