Review: Pretty good barrel, and it actually fits my MR2. Decent accuracy, very lightweight, lots of length choices (12", 14", 16", and 20" for almost all guns)

I love this barrel, it's a lot better than my stock barrels, but to get better accuracy, i might have to turn down my velocity, but no biggie. I think i might actually be around 310 FPS, so, if i cut that down, it'll be better. Even at this velocity though, at 15 yards i got a spread of about 12" with my 16" barrel.

UPDATE 5/18/09:
After using this barrel for many games, i have realized that it wasn't very good because of my MR2. I put this on my Spyder Pilot with HPA shooting at about 290 fps and got a spread of about 5" at 40 ft. This is pretty decent i felt, as the paint was a little big for the barrel. with smaller paint it was almost ball-on-ball accuracy.

Good barrel overall, but is now in bad cosmetic shape because of rough games in the brush. Still works great though!
Conclusion: I would recommend this barrel to pretty much anyone, especially people with MR2s, because this is one of the only after market barrels that fit it. Great barrel for $35.
