Review: I bought the Tribal Styx barrel (14in) for roughly $30. It's autococker threaded and comes in only a glossy black finish. The inside of the barrel is micro honed to a mirror finish. The main advertising ploy of Tribal Styx barrels is that they are lighter than the Dye Ultralight barrel. By all means they actually are! When compared directly to a 14in Ultralite multiple players felt that the Tribal Styx was lighter. It is also pretty much identical to the Ultralite in the Accuracy area as well. Granted it won't ever be as accurate as a kit with multiple bore options but for a two piece barrel that's lighter than Ultralite and is pretty much on par with it but for 1/3 the price tag, why not, right?

*Note that I only give it a 9 out of 10 because there is only one size bore back to choose from. If a kit were made, I'd buy it in a heartbeat and give it an 11*
Conclusion: Buy this barrel if you want the feel and accuracy of a Dye Ultralight but the price of a J&J Ceramic. Hands down the best bang for your buck.
9 out of 10
