Review: Wow, what an amazing barrel. i just got the barrel recently to replace my flatline (it was chopping to much paint needs to be re sand blasted)
first off, i ordered a 16" barrel from J&Js web site. it was out of stock and i have to say customer service is a bit above par. helped me get one as fast as i could and wound up getting a 14"
but on to the barrel! Wow, what an amazing barrel. i got it and instantly started to pull of my flatline. this thing is LIGHT! i cant empathize that more! the stock tippmann barrel feels about twice as heavy. i was some what worried about that then screwed it onto my gun and went out back to do some testing.
set up a piece of plywood thats about man size 20 feet away. put a few old rounds that i had in a case into the hopper, and fired 1 round. at first i didn't think it fired, but low and behold i had a direct hit. a smiled crossed my face, this thing is quiet. quieter then the bolt. i fired again this time a 3 round burst, every single round was in the EXACT SAME PLACE, at this i was stunned being used to my flat line and all and for the fact that it was old paint. so i fired another 3 round burst at the head. one after the other landed in the exact same place. big smile now, i back up to about 30 feet. fire the same amount of rounds. get the same results. then back up to about 50 feet. almost same results. about 1 inch groupings. 100 feet 3 to 4 inches. 150 FEET! 6 to 8 inch groupings. absolutely amazing. then i take a look at the barrel and notice it is scratched already. which is annoying but hey. then i discovered another fun experiment. since its a 2 piece i unscrewed the second half of the barrel. and received a 7 inch little stubby. witch is really nice for close quarters. my first time on the field with it i was hiding in a very tight building so i unscrewed the second half and collapsed the stock and i had a whole new gun.
only problem with unscrewing the second half is its about as loud as a stock tippmann
over all i really love it, not as much range as a flatline, but it doesn't chop paint its not as loud and you can actually hit something!
sorry about the horrible writing and wording and such.
im really sick so i figured i would do this so if it doesnt make since or something just ask me ill answer any questions.
Conclusion: deferentially an amazing barrel. i would grab one ASAP. cheap too
