nice black finish on barrel. spiral ported. SmartParts Logo on barrel. Nice looking barrel. Excellent Accuracy! Increased range!
Ball breakage in this barrel is hard to clean out. I have only had one break in the barrel using Brass eagle Paint.
I have a Stingray II and I previously had a EagleWorks 12" barrel. I broke 2 balls using that barrel out of 400 Brass Eagle rounds. Even with a clean barrel I noticed the balls were curving off when aiming for long range targets.
With the Smart Parts Progressive barrel I can now consistently hit targets with deadly accuracy at close range, and pick off targets at long range! I got increased range and accuracy. My Stingray shoots just as good as my friends Spyder TL Plus w/Smart Parts Progressive barrel. If your looking for a good barrel for the stingray II, I highly recomend the SP progressive 12". Ball breakage is a pain in the arse with this barrel. Then again its a pain in the arse with any ported barrel especially the teardrop! I hate breaking balls with that barrel.
