Review: The Stories:
Okay, it all starts out with my birthday. Mom wanted to know what I wanted and I chose that shroud, but enough about that, Let's get down to the nitty-gritty.

After a suffering, painful month of waiting for this shroud in the mail, I finally received it. There are three rings and an allen wrench that come with the shroud, so one can adjust it to their barrel. When I did and put the OPSGEAR mag on it, it was ready to take onto the field.

My BT4 Banshee was acting up on me one day out paintballing. I didn't want to switch markers, but I had to. I swapped out for my Tippmann A-5 and went out again in the forest. As soon I get out there when the referee was explaining the field boundries and such, one guy said to me that he loved the barrel and the Mag that went with it. Later on in life, One player apprecaited the Mag and also said, "With that machine gun shroud on, it makes it (marker) look 'raw.'" I was so amazed on how much of an eye attracter it was and mixed with something else that can play along with the theme will make it look different. It is a mil-sim marker and looks like a real firearm, but it is not from my perspective.

The product ALONE:
This shroud will keep the barrel protected, but may scratch the outside of barrel while assembling. There are also three different sized rings to fit the shroud and the barrel snug, or a non-wobble fit. There is also an allen wrench to screw the shroud onto the Tippmann's or the BT's barrel adaptor already on the marker. It may leave three silver circles on the adaptor and is recommended for someone is does not care if their marker is knicked. The shroud is light weight because it is made out of aluminum and which leads to the shroud being unable to rust from the weather. It also comes in four lengths: 8", 12", 14", and 18". Some people say that it has a lack of instructions, but it was a sinch to figure it out how to mount it.
Conclusion: If meaness and mil-sim is your ticket, this shroud is the way to go.
