*Shoots straight and far
*Looks sweet(Matter of a person tastes and differrences
*Rifling is cool
*Break a ball you have to clean it very very good in order for it to shoot accurately again.
*It's extremely picky on the paint
I bought a 13" barrel for my 98 custom. I liked it for it's accuracy but once a ball break happened it shoot very bad. I was using PMI paint which is the only one I love shooting and buying. The barrel is accurate I'll tell you that but for the price it is being sold at I felt I was getting my money's worth. I mean a 80 dollar barrel shoots crappy than a 50 dollar barrel you feel ripped off well I'm selling mine for 50 dollars on ebay so it won't matter.
You are speaking from experience, unlike the uneducated haters who just flamed this barrel, yes it's picky and harder to clean, just use a strait shot and then a flex swab it'll clean fine, I've even shot through a few breaks (using evil)
