4 years
Products Used:
Dye Xcel 14"
Dye Boom 14"
Armson Stealth 13"
Marker Setup: Spyder TL+
22-stage Core expansion chamber, 8" black magic drop forward, Armson SSR 16", 12v revy, Cyclone III bolt, homemade stock, raised sight rail w/Armson sight
marbs or better
Strengths: --Shoots absolutely straight --------------------->
--Easy Cleaning two piece
--Fires through break extremely well. (dry fire 5-8 times and its back to 95%%)
--Extremely light
--Cheaper and overall better than a Dye Boomer or for that matter, any Dye (cept maybe titanium series but how many average joe's can afford that????)
--Fairly quiet
--Barely ever breaks paint! 1-1500
Weaknesses: --Has a tendancy to fire with top spin so the balls drop off sharp every now and again......this only occurs when firing with heavy velocity pressure!
--My barrel came and the two pieces didn't match perfectly when you look down the barrel but hell......didn't affect accuracy at all as far as i'm concerned.
--16" may be a lil long......takes more CO2 per shot to get it at a good distance......heavy pressure tanks may affect accuracy with this barrel as with any.
Conclusion: This Armson is a great barrel overall. The only thing I would suggest is getting a 13", it will be just as deadly and not as CO2 costly........if your not completely sure about it, EMAIL me.....i'll give you more info.......armson stealths are worth a look also.
Honestly I think Armson still has some fine tuning to do on their Straight-Stepped Rifling but as of now it's pretty damn good. ARMSON ALL THE WAY!
