Review: These are simply the best milsim barrels on the market when all factors are taken into account: accuracy-quality-looks-customizability and price. It won't outshoot my Freak or Lapco barrel, but it shoots just as well. Its closest competitor is the Lapco, yet it is cheaper. You get to choose from a variety of front tips, allowing you to customize the look. There are also various lengths offered (6.75", 9", 12" and more I think). As of yet they only have a 0.689 bore version, but it has been reported that different bore sizes are in the pipeline. It is also a very light barrel. The quality of the exterior finish is good, and after a summer full of rough games in the woods it is still in great shape. Whenever I get the odd barrel break, it will shoot perfectly well after one or two swabs from a squeegie. Although it doesn't really have self-cleaning abilities (I don't think any barrel really does anyway), it cleans very well with a standard squeegie.
Conclusion: Best milsim barrel for the buck, by far, period.
