Recommended
Paintballs:
rps bigball for the standard insert it comes with, but it will fit ANY paint with the right insert
Strengths: ACCURACY, inserts, looks, quiets my gun a little over the stock barrel
Weaknesses: Definitly the... um... i don't know
Review: This barrel RULES!!! It's reeeeaaaallllly accurate. I was aiming at a hole in a tree from about 75 feet away, with a slight breeze, and i hit around (within a few inches) or in the hole about 5/6ths of the time. It would have been even better if i wasn't using economy paint, and the wind was blowing! A lot of people say that this barrel doesn't have the looks because it looks like a peni$, but in my opinion, it doesn't look like that at all. Compared to other barrels, the cost is awesome (I paid $65), but the cost of extra inserts takes away the glamour of the price for the barrel. I think it's something like $20 for an insert.
Conclusion: Overall, this barrel is AWESOME. It's got the same price and accuracy of an All-American, but the Freak Jr. has the interchangeable inserts. I strongly recommend this barrel to everyone who plays in the woods a lot like I do!

where did u find that deal at, i have the same gun and i've been looking for a multi piece barrel to make it easier to change lengths on the go. Also this may seem like a stupid question but how has the barrel hold up in aggressive games, like say u had to dive behind cover, if it hit something would it crack or just chip the paint a little or what.

i've seen the barrel extensions though. are those a different cut, or what it the difference really between the freak jr. and the complete freak set that costs like 200$ just so i know if i can save close to 150

I dont really know what you mean by barrel extensions. Are the extensions made by smart parts? Each freak is a two piece barrel, and doesnt have any third part except for the inserts, which go inside the barrel.

The difference between the freak jr and the complete freak set is that the freak jr only comes with one insert, while the complete freak set comes with all 7 (or 8, not sure) inserts. Each additional insert costs around $20 (i think) and so a freak jr with all the inserts would probably cost around $200-$225. You dont need any additional inserts unless youre playing with smaller paint, because the insert the freak jr comes with is .693, which is pretty big. The freak (not the jr) is a different barrel than the freak jr. Go to smartparts.com to see how theyre different.
