let's just say this isn't the first barrel i've used.
8th gen silver bushy w/ red/blue splash and sonic asa and detent, palmer stabilizer, equation bizerk, tko d/f
shoots incredibly well for an 8" barrel. Shoots 90%% after chopping after firing about 10 shots- no squeegee needed. inserts aren't aluminum like other "ehem" expensive barrel systems. But this ISN'T expensive-less than $85 w/ three inserts of your choosing. Some other review(s) said the silver/clear looks horrible, BUT mine looks great. I had a couple of people asking about it and where to get one.
I haven't seen anything to complain about it right now, except it suffers at long distances. What do you expect with an 8" though? A 10" is available now. Yes, it took a month to get mine, but it wasn't Equation's fault, it was the company i ordered it through.
So far, I love it. No real problems. Fits all paints. Under $85. best barrel overall i've shot. nuf said. might wanna order it real soon if you want to have it before mid august!
