2k cocker, shocktech stuff all over it, benchmark 45 trigger frame, ergo reg, ULTRALITE barrel
This barrel is the MOST accurate barrel I've ever shot. Better than all the other barrels listed above that I've tried.
It's quiet, and simply looks badass.
14" seems to be a great length, not too long, but not too short either.
When looking down the end of the barrel, the bore step creates 2 perfect concentric circles, the tip and base of the barrel line up perfectly, even though this is the new style "screw" apart ultralite.
I haven't found much bad about this barrel. I rarely have broken paint in this barrel, but when I did I found that this barrel isn't too great at shooting clean. But as long as you squeegee after a break, this barrel is back to 100%%. And this isn't really even a problem. I haven't broken hardly any paint while using this barrel.
My conclusion is that this is the best barrel that I've EVER used. In fact, I usually keep an arsenal of barrels in my collection, but since I've gotten this barrel, I've sold all my other barrels because I'm confident I don't need any more than just this one.
I've heard a lot of theories about "glued" barrels being superior to "screw" barrels, but like I said, I have the new style "screw" dye ultralite and it is just amazing. Dye has really done a great job. The barrel lines up perfectly and hasn't disappointed me yet.
I used to think DYE was all hype and horribly overpriced, in fact I still do when it comes to many of their products, but this DYE ultralite was worth every penny (it helps that I got it for $55 shipped used, not sure if I would have paid full price, but I probably would have considering how impressed I am with this barrel).
im going to buy this barrel, but i need advice on a bore size. I don't want to buy a bunch of backs. Would you suggest the .688 or .692 as a good standard bore size? i know it depends on paint and i plan on buying good paint. any suggestions?
if you guys want a good barrel get a stiffi, or you could go to specops and purchase their stiffi barrels (they teamed up with SITE inc.) called the C-series barrels they're about 2/3s of the price of a regular stiffi and come with your choice of tips (including a apex adapter tip!)
just i thought when i tried this barrel its a bit overpriced for what it is. it cant shoot through breaks at all and cant self-clean like a ceramic or CF barrel can. its nice how its a 2 piece though...
