Review: I bought this barrel with high hopes of rifled barrel effect, but was very dissapointed.

This barrel is not nearly as accurate as its hyped up to be. Rifling on a round object does not have the same effect as on a bullet. With the Straighline the balls tend to spiral all over over the place. Only about half the balls fly straight. My JJ ceramic is more accurate and a fraction of the price.

If a ball breaks in the barrel good luck hitting anything 25+ feet away. Paint break is more frequent with fitted bores and the occansional paint deffect.

The cost is sick, $150 yikes! you can get a better barrel for the cost.
Conclusion: i would not reccomend this barrel. buy a cheaper more consistant barrel like a JJ and practice aiming by using the balls usual pattern of flight. you will never get a consistant straight bullet effect from any barrel.

i give it a 3 for paint to bore match, i also like the concept but it just not worth the money.
3 out of 10
