wanna tell ya a lil story. me and my friend went out into the woods to test out the barrel when i first got i. he fired about 10 shots, then tured around and said "u gonna shoot or not?". the "heck" of it all is, had shot more than 10 shots already. I have tried alot of barrels, the m98 stock(but of course it sucked), Dye Boomstick, Dye Excel, J&J Ceramic, and a Dye Stainless. The All-American stainless, is the by far the quietest of all, and i'd say the most accurate of all as well. The distance is also exceptional,but the boomstick may have shot a little further, but not nearly as straight.
i cant think of very many things. if you use very very very crappy paint, dont get this barrel. I used 32 Degrees TeamColors, andhad absolutely no problem. i've had the barrel for about 6 months, and only had one ball break. it can be a little difficulttoclear after a break. i recommend 2 or 3 clearing shots and then a little squeegieing. other than those things, nothing at all.
the All-Americanis a 14-inch piece of work. itsa great barrel. I usedit on my tippmann M98, but i know guys that use them on thier angels and their Spyders. they all agree that its a great barrel. in the standard bore size barrel, all of the 32 Degrees paint works well, i recommend Team colrs myself. as far as the small bore barrels are concerned, i really dont know what paint to use. It's wel worth what it costs. it's actually worth WAY WAY more, to me. IN my opinion The All-American blows every other barrel out of the water, but if you object i can say this "see ya on the field". I would recommend this barrel to anyone and everyone. its outstanding.
