This barrel shoots so far, its awesome. I recently went paintballing, and I had 5 guys look at me after I shot and they said "man your gun shoots far!" People say it isnt very accurate, but if you can handle lining up a barrel right it shoots perfectly. I havent had any problems with bad paint. Also, it is great for speed ball, because it shoots so frickin straight. People are not very smart when they give this barrel a bad rating. They just dont have the mental capacity to line up the barrel.
