Amazing distance, accuracy, few chops

I got this barrel for $75 used on ebay and was impressed with the look. Afters shooting it, I recognized that the ball goes down when it comes out of the barrel, then comes back up and floats. While still very accurate, this becomes a problem when shooting prone and trying to zero a sight with this barrel. After getting used to this effect, this barrel is very accurate and has awesome range. The curving and dive bomb effects are impressive in target shooting, but I have yet to use them in a game.This barrel chops maybe 5 balls out of 1000, but it often just shoots through most chops with no problems. This barrel is well worth the money.
The apex in general is way more accurate if you use a lapco apex ready barrel or use a home mod to mount it to the end of a barrel. I got the lapco and have noticed a drastic increase in consistency and accuracy.
I recommend this item both for its look and performance on the field. I would target shoot with it though before playing in a game to get used to the different effects and settings.

The regular apex has a shorter barrel and is just a stock bt barrel with an apex tip on the end. The m16 apex barrel has the m16 handguard and front sight covering a slightly longer barrel, I would say maybe 2 inches longer than the regular apex. The m16 barrel is more expensive but looks cooler, but both barrels perform the same.
