Period of
Product Use:
6 months
2 years
Products Used:
Opsgear 18 inch fluted sniper barrel (very accurate, very big and heavy and very loud, almost as accurate as CP barrel but a little less.)

Stock 98 barrel (Wow I shouldn't even have too.. It's very curvy, and inconsistent and unpredictable.)

Rap4 Raptor Barrel 12'' (halfway between CP barrel and Stock 98 barrel. It's pretty bad, but ok i guess, 5ft. groupings at 50ft. as opposed to Cp barrel, 2-3 inch groupings at 70ft.)

Marker Setup: Tippmann 98 custom, opsgear G36 stock, Rap4 collapsible stock, opsgear 18'' fluted sniper barrel, stock 98 barrel, rap4 raptor barrel w/ apex tip, CP 1 PIECE .689 BARREL OHYA! and a shake and shoot loader.

I also own a completely stock Proto SLG which rocks but my stupid field doesn't use air so i have to sell.
Anything that won't break if you drop it or squeeze it lightly. I would say anything except Canadian Tire or Walmart paint but that's the closest thing we have to a proshop or paintball store within thousands of miles. I use big balls or procaps X balls which are really good.
Strengths: ACCURATE!!!
Easy Cleaning
Weaknesses: I had to order online
That`s it
Review: I have heard good things about this barrel, and I had to choose between this and a JJ ceramic barrel and I ended up choosing this. When it arrived I went downtown to get paint and Co2, yes, Co2. I came home called up my friend and tried it out, I was amazed, I was hitting a 4 by 4 from 90 feet away and only missed once when I tried to hip fire. (my fault)
I got my friend to try it and I stood in front and beside it and found it to be a lot quieter than all my other barrels. The barrel shoots great from far and close, if you can aim at something, you will nail it. I was sooo excited to try this out with my friends in play.

Stories of success:
First day of use:
Pegged my friend in the ankle from under a van he was hiding behind.
Won a Gatorade in a shooting competition with one of my friends.
Headshotted my friend when i was trying to flank him and he saw me from about 100 feet.
Headshotted my other friend when he peeked around a corner.
And nailed my first time paintballing friend in the ass when we were all rushing his base and he was running out the back door.

So lets just say I was happy with my purchase and my friends really weren't lol
I was using a tippmann 98 and Co2 but it shot straight as ever and groupings were as good as you can aim.

Conclusion: Great barrel, you won't be disappointed unless you buy the wrong thread lol
I had it in a 14 inch .689 bore barrel, and used it all day whenever I played. I haven't had a break yet, and I just sold it to the friend I shot in the ankle as I will be getting an SP1 so I can keep using Co2. I will give it a 9 because nothings perfect, but this is as close as ive ever seen so far. I often think about getting a freak or sly carbon fiber, but it`s only because they look nice, and my CP is accurate as hell, so I tell myself that.
If you need a light, extremely accurate, cheap, quiet barrel, this is it. Enjoy the headshots
9 out of 10
