range is awesome, no other barrel system can touch a flatline as far as range goes. much improved over the 98 as far as installation goes (just loosen a few screws and it twists on and off). looks very nice on the marker. I have put about 2 cases of paint thru it so far and no breaks, fired at pretty rapidly without breaking too. really consistant if you take time between shots. first gun i have had worth putting a sight on. also is u tilt the gun u can shoot around corners using the backspin.
cant shoot fast and maintain accuracy, something about the barrel makes it where u can do maybe 2 shots a second max or you begin to get some slightly worse accuracy. really this is only an issue with 120-150+ feet and so it becomes less accurate when firing rapidly. its a loud barrel, but thats neither here nor there.
darn good long range barrel. I would say this is a great barrel for all but the most aggressive close quarter players. when I mentioned innacurate before that is only at ranges other guns would be COMPLETELY innacurate at. its funny people know its me shooting at them because they say it is a straight trajectory heading at em ). all in all I say very good barrel and a good investment (this is coming from a total freak who owns a lot of stuff I wish I would never have bought)
