I bought this barrel used from a friend. So far, its performance is amazing. I started out with walmart visible impacts and they were breaking, but it was like 15 degrees out. I then switched to monster balls in warmer weather and it worked great. It is somewhat difficult to clean breaks, but it rarely happens, so its okay. The inserts are really helpful. Its accuracy is not good at extremely long ranges, but it is much better than my stock barrel. I tested it, and the inserts do shrink in the cold, which is a minus. Other than that, the barrel is quiet, accurate, and is a great all around barrel.
I would recommend this product to everyone who has the cash. It is slightly more than other barrels like J&J's, but I think its performance is worth it. The inserts are somewhat fragile and hard to get in and out, but overall, I love this barrel. I give it a 9 out of 10 just because it could be cheaper and it is somewhat difficult to clean
