Products Used:
Evil Pipe kit, Assassin's barrel, various stock barrels.

The Pipe kit can compete with this, though I tested them both on the same day, within minutes of eachother, and the Python with a stubby tip performed the same, or better than the Pipe.

The Assassin's barrel is a stock barrel, though it's one of the better stock barrels out there. It's not a barrel kit, but if you put the Python kit on there, then it transforms any barrel into a kit.
Marker Setup: 05 Ego
Virtue board
Cure bolt
Killa detents

CP on/off
CP rail
Pipe kit, as well as the Python kit
Strengths: Accurate
Easy to use
Turns any barrel into a full barrel kit
Genius design
Weaknesses: Small amount of sleeves (Four sleeves, and one reball sleeve)
Review: So here's the story about how I acquired my Python barrel kit:

I was at the Michigan Monster Game, and was just walking around with some friends, and we came upon a booth that had a huge Python banner on it. We went over to check it out, seeing what it was all about.

So, we get over there to be greeted by a very friendly man, who goes straight into what this barrel kit is, how it works, what it does for you, as well as how it compares with other barrel kits.

He starts off by telling us that it's pretty much just a Freak kit that can be used on any barrel. How this kit works, is you take the body, which screws into your gun, then you match the paint size to the sleeve, and put the sleeve in from the front.

After that, you put on whatever barrel you have, whether it be stock, or pretty much any barrel out there.

Now, the genius of this barrel kit, is that, if you only have a stock barrel, in, say, a .692 bore, but the paint you're shooting is .685 or .688, then you just slide in the correct sleeve, and then screw your stock barrel into the body, which holds the sleeve in.

Basically this is a barrel adapter. Egos are Cocker threaded, so what I would do is take my Python body, screw it onto my Ego, put in the correct sleeve, and then attach whatever barrel I have to the front of the body. It's a genius design, really, because if you don't have $100+ to spend on a barrel kit, you can get one of these for about $60 and you'll be set.

I also bought the stubby tip for the kit, which made my gun really loud. What's really nice about having a 3"-4" barrel, is that it happens to be as accurate as any other barrel out there. It shot as well as my 16" Pipe kit. The accuracy makes up for the noise that it makes.

I was amazed with the kit when I tested it out, and so I thought about it, and then had a friend test it before buying it. He fell in love with it as well, and he's planning on buying one, too.

If you're in need of a barrel kit, but don't have the cash to spend, this is the best thing out there that you can get.

When I was using the stubby tip, people were amazed with it on the field. They kept asking how I could get any accuracy from it at all, and so I'd just say, "Ok, you see that tree right there?", and then just rip off a string of paint. Usually the response was, "Wow. That's sick, man." - which is true.

I'm extremely satisfied with this kit, and I'll update this as the time comes.

Conclusion: I would definitely recommend this kit to anyone out there. It gets two thumbs up in my book.

Honestly, this performs as well as any other barrel kit out there, for alot less of a price.

Why would you pay over $100 for a barrel kit, when you could have the same thing for $60? A $40 savings is a lot of money, and most barrel kits are over $100, so I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt.

Check it out, they're great little kits, and I know that I'll be using this alot.
10 out of 10
