Review: I'm a carbon fiber junkie. Every hobby, I have to have something Carbon fiber on my equipment. It's a sickness. When I began researching the Carbon Fiber Barrels I looked at:

- Sly Equipment
- Stiffi Switch
- Deadly Wind (DW)

The Pro's of the DW barrel became very apparent. First of all it's cheaper than the other barrel kits by at least $50. Second it's the only one that advertizes being swabbable. The final straw was the inserts. The freak inserts provide 5" barrel sizing vs the 2-3" of the other barrel kits (sly and stiffi). I assume that should provide a more efficient and accurate barrel overall. I haven't tested the other barrels so I can't speak for them but the DW barrel shoots very nice.

I've noticed an improved accuracy over the stock PMR barrel at both short and long ranges. I can't really tell any improved efficiency (I assume it to be negligible).

The best part of this barrel is the way it looks on the marker. Very simple black carbon fiber with two small DW logos on the threaded aluminum insert.

Another plus was shipping. I received mine in 2 days from ordering.
Conclusion: If you're looking for a carbon fiber barrel, look no further. Price and looks it has the others easily beat.
