Viking With A Viewloader, 68CI 300PSI tank, drop foward with shut off, and a spyder with same tank setup and tank. with Cerimic Barrel
The best I found to match the J&J Cermic is the dusk by darruxxes (Sold at sporting good stores, and retail stores)
Easy to Clean, Quiet, most accurrate, and is light and strong
Can Chip Easy, can fall loose from gun with no o-ring.
I think it is a good step up from the stock Barrels, I use it on a spyer that I have, and works well, It seems to be a good Mid-Range acuurate barrel, it will come loose from the gun easy, but I found that putting a tank O-Ring on past the threads, and a firm tighten of it Stops it from working loose from the gun, you do have to strech the O-Ring over the threaded end, but it works Nicely for a "Lock Ring". The Performace is probly about average for this price rang, Its big advatage is that it cleans its self very well. I also found out that it is abou like the telfon skilet, give it a drop or two of oil (Regular paintball oil, NOT 3 n 1 or motor oil) in it before play, and swab it out with your swab, it improves its performance enough to tell. Over all I Rate as a good step up from your stock barrel of your spyder, or other mid priced guns. I have been happy with it for the price, it not as good as the two peice, but as long as you use decent paint in it it works well.
I say that it is a Good step up from your stock barrell that came with a tippman or a spyder or mid price gun, it is a good mid-range accuracy barrel for the price, and it on major plus is it asy to clean I Rate it a nine because there is always room to improve.
