Review: Well I was in Empire tent out at the PSP River City Open and I just had to ask about this barrel. After telling them I needed two (twins ftw) they told me they would sell them for $75 75 DOLLARS EACH! With a price lower than the Freak, and with quality control that blows nearly every other barrel out of the water, I just couldn't pass this offer up.

After watching a few more games, we headed home to test our new Revolvers out. So we gassed up our Ions, threw our new barrels on and headed out into the back. We measured out 100 feet from our target, took a few shots. We were extremely disappointed, the spread of the Revolvers was about 15 inches! Not at all what we expected, we thought they would shoot much better... And then my brother pointed out that there was no o-rings on the backs of the barrels, causing them to shake a lot when we shot them. We took the o-rings off of our stock barrels, and threw them on our Revolvers. We loaded our guns each with another pod and started to blast away at our target, the result? A 5 inch spread. 5 inches! Without the o-ring these barrels just can't preform, but add the much needed o-ring and your gun becomes more like a laser, hitting whatever you want, when ever you want.

At the field
About a week later we headed out to the local XBall field with our new barrels to see how much it would effect our game. It was amazing how much it helped. Off the break, you can shoot across field with only a 10 inch spread, making an impenetrable lane, and hit someones pack on your first try. Also if you find someones hopper is sticking out, you no longer have to hope the 20+ shots you sent towards them got a lucky hit, you know that if you send 5 towards them, they WILL be hit.
Conclusion: We were a little disappointed that Empire didn't provide an o-ring with the kit. Good thing our stock barrels did though. All in all it's an amazing barrel, by far the best I have ever used.
10 out of 10
