Review: I picked up this kit for $60 from a friend which is about the going rate. I set it up on my trilogy cocker for a halloween game and got chronoed in. First thing I noticed is how much more straight it shot with the kit versus the stock barrel. The inserts are well made and easy to pick out for the paint you're shooting. I was able to size a ball very easily

As I mentioned earlier you need to put an oring on the end of the barrel,if you don't when you go to unthread it from say a sniper II the front will unthread leaving the back in the marker. If you add the oring it puts the extra leverage on the back so that it comes out as one piece. Why this is not a standard thing that can be done from the factory is beyond me -1 because of it jamming itself in my gun a few times before I figured out the problem. The other issue is that the packaging itself keeps a death grip on the back so that getting it out can be a real struggle. I remedied that by only putting the back in about 3 inches or so rather than all the way into the holder so it can be easily extracted

For the price it's a better value than paying more for a freak kit (if you can find one anymore) or a pipe kit (ditto). Overall I'd buy it over a pipe kit due to the not having to carry barrel backs (meaning you carry less weight and you can buy new sizes cheaper). I would also buy it over a Freak due to the smart parts kit being expensive
Conclusion: Great kit for the money. With the exception of the oring problem and the problem mentioned with the case it's the best kit you could buy
