Doesn't come with an o-ring (took it from stock barrel)
First off, let me just say that this thing looks fantastic right out of the tube! (look at photos) I got mine in blue on Ebay for $25, and it was definitely worth it!
As soon as i got home, i took it out and tried it with some 3-week old (not counting sitting on the shelf at Wal-Mart) Impact paint and shot it. The barrel bore was a little big for these, but it still shot great! It is no contest which barrel i will be using from now on on my Ion.
Some of the paintballs really only curved because they were kind of old, and had dimples. This is great though, and i would highly recommend this to a friend.
EDIT: I found some old stingers that seemed to be in decent shape with only a few dimples, and they shot ropes! Far better than the impact which was a little small.
If you want to have different bore sizes, you cannot get any more form Proto, but the Dye Ultralite fronts and backs are interchangeable with Proto fronts and backs. For example, you could have a Dye UL .685 back and the Proto front, or you could have the Proto .690 back with a Dye UL front.
Find this on Ebay and buy it! Great addition to any gun! 10/10
