Review: Took this out and used it for the first time yesterday, and WOW... in comparison to all my buddies out there this thing was extremely quiet. The only other person out there with us that came close was a 98 custom with a J&J ceramic barrel, and mine was just blowing him out of the water. Accuracy was really good, I was putting a cluster of paint on the side of a concrete tube within a 1 foot radius at about 100+ feet, and wasnt even really trying. Not to mention in one of our games with me and my buddy vs 5 other people (2 on 5) I was able to pick off three different guys from around a 100 feet out through the trees and branches with as much as 2 shots a piece for each of em.
Conclusion: Overall great Barrel, it aint no silencer, but it does quiet down my A-5 substantially, and the accuracy was well worth a 10
Rating:
10 out of 10

To set the record straight being the guy with the J&J Ceramic Barrel on the 98 Custom. He did not blow me out of the water... His accuracy was slightly better than mine, but that also could be because his marker has an expansion chamber and a RT Trigger whereas mine has neither.

As far as sound, yes his barrel was quieter than mine, but both of our barrels were damn near impossible to hear unless you were within 20-30 feet of us and knew what to be listening for.

sorry Jaskel, but you don't talk smack about your partners gear and not expect a retort bro!! :)
