no kits just single barrels like the Kaner, and stock
WGP 70 ci. 4500 psi HPA Tank
Smart Parts Total Freak Kit
CP Flame Drop forward
WGP Black Magic Reg.
CiP Full Force II Bolt
S.O.B. Circuit Board
Clear Egg II
Anything that is consistant in size and roundness
1. Eight different inserts
2. Stainless steel
3. Ability to swap back/front size
2. Semi-loose insert grip (not as bad as some make it sound)
Although this is my first barrel kit, I have used quite a few different barrels. The inserts are made of stainless steel which are honed to higher tolerances than the aluminum inserts and are far less likely to bend or wear down over time.. This means better accuracy and distance. This kit has surpassed my thought of how it would perform, no thanks to my friend who hates Smart Part's guts. When i first received this kit i was amazed buy the convenient carrying case and variety of the inserts. You never seem to realize the difference in size in the balls until you have different bores to compare them to. When i first time I used this barrel I was more than satisfied with the results.
Test was at about 50' with one month old PMI Big Balls. Fired 50 rounds though each barrel
WGP 14" Kaner barrel .689
After rounds fired almost all shots were within a 5 inch diameter circle with two shots that went off to about 7 inches. I had 1 break in the barrel. The tip of the barrel had begun to come unloose.
SP 14' AA barrel using the .689 insert
After rounds fired ALL but one shout was within a 2 inch circle with one that went off to 5 inches. I had no ball breaks. No separation of front and back., and no movement of the insert that i could tell
Overall think that in the long run the extra money that i had to spend to buy this kit. I have heard that the inserts can move around but i haven't witnessed that happening yet. If you have the money I would buy this kit. And if you do pay the extra money and get the stainless steel inserts, the investment will pay off over time. I would rate it a 9.5 because of the price and the fact that nothing is perfect but this is a close as it gets.
10 out of 10

Hey BigG, I was looking on getting a new barrel and i was instantly drawn into the stainless freak. Although i'm broke from my shocker i was wondering if you could tell me the most used insert's bore sizes, that way i can just get them separately and wont have to buy the whole kit.
I bought a Nerve and it came with the 14" freak barrel, ss back and all-American front, and a ss .693 insert. the gun with the barrel and nothing else weights around 2.5lbs.when you have the tank and hopper on it is balanced. it doesn't matter.
