Stock barrel - sucks compared to this barrel
Flatline - not as good, but decent if tuned right
Tippmann 98 Custom A.C.T. - Response Trigger, Cyclone Feeder, X-7 hopper, J&J 20 inch ceramic barrel, Apex Tip
RPS Stingers, bigger paintballs
Very accurate, self cleaning, reliable, quiet
Not the strongest material, but i haven't had any problems regarding that.
This barrel is one of the best I've seen and used. Its smooth internals make it very accurate and it pretty quiet. It shoots best with RPS Stingers and paintballs that are a liilte bigger. I have an Apex Tip attached to the end and all of my friends are scared of my gun. Hahaha! In a few occasions I've shot someone and the person next to them didn't even know due to it being so quiet.
I would for sure buy this barrel for your gun. It has got to be one of the top barrels out there.
