Products Used:
Empire barrel kit, and only tested the evil pipe kit...
Marker Setup: dragunfire full function lcd, 68/3000 tank, ergo reg, spudnuk'l bolt, maddmann rocket valve....
Pmi paintballs
Strengths: Most inserts
Most fronts
by far the most versatile barrel kit on the market...
Weaknesses: pain to clean when chopping occurs...
Review: I bought this barrel because i notice that my accuracy was not that good with the current barrel i was using. The first thing i noticed was that there are 8 inserts which is way more then any other kit i ever seen..I also noticed that the fronts for this kit are heavily ported so i figured it couldn't be that good for effieciency. Well as i started testing i used pmi paintballs with the .689 insert and chronoed my gun i shot 260 fps so i adjusted my gun and reshot..this time the same i switched to my old barrel and chronoed and got a 296...So i knew the porting was affecting the chronoing...Next i shot a couple shots at 50 feet and the barrel was very accurate...One more thing when i chopped a ball i had to clean the insert and the back piece and the front piece which wth all the porting was a major pain in the for accuracy this barrel is great but for effieciency i wouldn't reccommend it..
Conclusion: This barrel is great but when i chopped it took like 2 mins to clean which is horrible..I lost about 200 shots with my tank which again is horrible and i couldn't get my gun to chrono over 265...if it wasn't for all that this barrel would get a 9 but because of the price and the above mentioned problems i give it a 6...but then again i only tested it with a 12" Teardrop other setups will probably be better or perhaps worse...
6 out of 10
