Kind of Loud
After reading the other reviews on this barrel, I decided to get one for myself. I was skeptical at first because of its short length but when I actually got the barrel on my gun, I was very impressed. The 8" barrel is shockingly accurate. I tested it against my 12" Big Shot and it is as accurate from close to medium distance. I don't play on a very large field so I don't need the extra distance that a longer barrel would provide. This barrel looks great on my marker, the finish matches pretty well. If you want a barrel that is not too long, get this barrel. You won't be dissapointed.
Excellent product. Get this barrel if you don't want a barrel that is really long. It is very accurate and looks great. What more can you ask for?
When he said "extra distance that a longer barrel would provide" he is speaking of being able to make an accurate shot at long distances, and yes most longer barrles do provide a more accurate shot at longer distances.

No, the length doesn't have much to do with it. As long as it's over 12 inches, there won't be much of a difference purely based on difference. It'll come down to paint-to-barrel match and how well-made the barrel is.
