Review: The Tippmann Straightline is an extremely accurate paintball barrel. Because I don't have the scientific know how to distinguish if the accuracy was due to the rifling or the sizer I was using I won't make any claims that rifling works or doesn't.

What I can say about this barrel is that at 25 feet I had fired 50 paintballs at a human cut out approx 5 feet tall and hit the target where I was aiming every shot. The spacing of the shots was amazing.

At 50 feet I had fired off 100 paintballs again nearly every shot placed exactly where I was aiming. At this point the center mass of the target was so full of paint that I began firing at the targets head area. This area was measured out to be approx 1x1 foot. At 50 feet I had missed 2 shot out of 30 that had painted by fence pink. Those 2 shots were early on in the firing cycle and I believe it was more user error then the barrel.

At 65 feet I had cleaned off the target so that I'd be able to see exactly where the balls were going and shot off the remaining 50 painballs that I had left. Every shot was aimed at center mass and every shot was a hit. At 65 feet though the spacing had spread out a bit.

This was by far the most accurate Barrel that I have ever used. Please keep in mind that I was using brand new paint that was visibly in good condition. Again I can't say that it was the rifling that caused the accuracy of the barrel but I can only assume that it had some factor.
Conclusion: It's my opinion that if you have the money go get this barrel. The price tag is a bit hefty but you might get lucky as I did and find it a bit cheaper.
10 out of 10

I forgot to add that out of 200 paintballs I did not have a single break.
