Review: Got this as part of the M82A1Kit some 6-7 months ago. All I could think was "Holy s***, this is massive!" Replacing my stock A5 barrel and loading up some leftover RPS Stinger, I lined up on a fence post about 75-100 feet away. At around 270 fps 8 out of 10 hit the post DEAD ON (the other two spun off oddly but that's Stinger for ya). Actually trying it in the field I was astounded by its performance. Situations where a target was too far or too tricky to hit I was able to hit time and time again. Now because it is a smoothbore barrel some arc is required for long shots but not much (compared to other smoothbores), and looking at its accuracy and consistency at long range combined with it's compatibility with most makes of paint I can say this barrel gives the Flatline a run for it's money. The calibre is around .688 -.689 so do a paint to barrel match for the best fit. Some will find that it is heavy (solid 1 inch diameter) and longer (18 inches) compared to the norm but you can get used to it. Noneoftheless I can't recommend it for CQB (I've had my moments of awkward movements and hitting walls). By far though it is one of the best smoothbore barrels - PERIOD.
Conclusion: If you want to be a marksman or just get the incredible shots you've always wanted then this is the barrel for you.

k i cant seem to get this thing to go that far or be as accurate as i read it to be using any paint that i have at the moment, and paint flies left and right with a grouping of about 6" at maybe 20 feet if that at all.

marker setup is as follows:
98 custom
18" opsgear barrel
opsgear G36 folding stock
opsgear sight riser
tasco red dot sight
opsgear dishka flash suppressor

so what should i get to make this more accurate and what-not?
such as an expansion chamber, HPA, remote coil etc?
