Review: Good stock barrel, but I don't really like it that much. It looks cool on my blazer, but I'm going to replace it with by bigshot and excel. Kinda small bore, so if you have big paint, your screwed.

I broke at least one ball down the barrel every game, and in order to clean it out you have to basically shoot about 4 to 7 shoots through the barrel. (Can't uscrew brass barrel on blazer)

Loud without vents, but not worth paying another 40 dollars to do it. I recomend something like the Dye Excel because its big bore, so you can shoot any paint through it, also its cheaper than the brass, lighter, and quieter. Also the bigshot is just as accurate, and the same bore size.
Conclusion: Pretty good barrel for the price, but other barrels that are just as good if not better for cheaper. I recomend either the CP one piece, Dye Excel, or Lapco bigshot. So I'll give it a 5 because its basically average.
5 out of 10

You can get Palmer Brass barrels in small, medium and large bore - perhaps you got stuck with a small bore and the paint you play with is medium-large.

In the 2000+ balls shot through mine (unported, 14" on an SP-8/Ion), it's been nothing less than outstanding. No barrel breaks shooting everything from X-ball Bronze and Silver to Draxxus Hellfire.

EXTREMELY accurate - on par with barrel kits like the Freak and Hammerhead and other barrels like the OpsGear Interceptor, which I've shot side by side with.

I have to believe yours doesn't reflect the norm for this barrel.

I too cannot believe that your barrel can perform this badly. Mine is the most accurate barrel I have ever seen or shot...

this barrel has eleptical honing meaning it will shoot ANY size paint (that is .68 anyway). This guy is getting breaks often which means there is some other issue. NOT the barrel.

again paint to barrel match problem
also the price for those other barrels is more since you have to buy them first then pay to get them turned down

and since they are big bore you are more likely to have rollout

The elliptical honing doesn't have anything to do with paint size. If you opted for wedgits, those allow a wide variety of bore sizes. However, if paint is too big for the barrel, nothing will stop the balls from breaking. I suggest that the reviewer try his barrel with different paint .

you CAN remove the barrel on a blazer, all you do is loosen that screw with the knob.

I have a 14"cp one peice. If you think this barrel shoots through breaks bad, then the cp is hell. I've had no problems with this barrel.

Wow, good luck switching from a powerhouse barrel to a bigshot.

Brass is not that great. Me and my friend we both bought 12" un-ported brass PPS barrels for our tippmann a-5's. Both barrels were breaking paint like crazy. On top of it my brass broke the first day I played. Barrel simply fell out the threaded adopter.
