Review: This barrel is worth every penny. If you're on a budget, and want something to upgrade from the stock barrel, this is one you should definitely look at.

It is very accurate up to 80-90 feet using medium quality paint. Should perform better with higher quality paint, but I haven't had a chance to try that.

My backyard is about 100 feet across and I am able to hit consistently a 2 gallon bucket from that distance, using Draxxus Basic Training paintballs.

Noise reduction is noticeable.

Some people report an increase in range, I didn't see that, but, on the last hyperball game I played a few weeks ago I was able to pick off players right from the break. I had to arc my shots, of course. From one end of the hyperball field to the other is about 175 feet.

I paid $29.00 for mine.
Conclusion: I recommend this barrel to those who are on a budget and are looking for an economic alternative to the stock barrel
