32* PT Xtreme - Spyder Spring Guide, Modified Spyder main spring
I've fired RPS All-Star, I&I House Paint, and JT Maxim's out of the kit using the .685 & .687 inserts. It features the most popular bore sizes for popular paints so you can fire pretty much anything out of it.
Strengths: Beautiful appearance with good accuracy. Out of the barrels I own I can most compair this to my Dye Xcel barrel. Though I notice a slight bit more accuracy with my M3 Barrel Kit, possibly due to the ability to actually match your barrel bore to your paint. As advertised, it came with 3 stainless steel barrel inserts, of which are the most popular bore sizes. My shot groupings were tight, and gave me the ability to place a shot where I wanted it to go. Last trip to Tombstone I had a few instances where I was able to take advantage of the M3 Kit accuracy, one instance where I had a 20 yard semi-lob shot to a player I flanked hitting him on his right side of his mask partially covering his goggles. Another shot where I placed 2 shots through a 3inch spacing (3 inch vertical) under a box to hit my girlfriend on the inner thigh...ugh... lets say she made me pay for those shots. Also the 2 barrel lengths it came with are perfect, choose the 9 incher for speed ball or CQB, and the 13.5 incher for larger fields, but still can be used in CQB if desired.
Weaknesses: Cant find anything I dont' like about the kit. I guess it would have been nice to have 1 more barrel length added at 11.5 to 12 inches, but the 13.5 inch barrel is good to go. Also would be cool to have additional barrel tips avialable, maybe an unported one for low pressure fans.
Conclusion: An excellent kit. I actually would pick this kit over the freak kit, or the CP kit. Personal preferance. I felt it looked more beautiful on the Dragun. Also the barrel bore consistancy, and smoothness is pleasing. I no longer really need my other barrels due to the versitility and accuracy of these barrels. It gave me the ability to even shoot 2 shots hitting on the exact same place (inner thigh) of a player I was going one on one with (my girlfriend), shot was made through a 3 inch gap under a box bunker she was behind (and believe me when I say she made me pay for those shots). I give this kit a 9, would have given it a 10 if it had a 12 inch barrel, and an aftermarket add on support to add onto the kit, would liked an unported barrel as well. But none the less this kit rocks. Also... don't play against your girlfriend cause if you win you still lose. Haha. I love you babe if you're reading this.
9 out of 10
