Review: This is an awesome barrel. It's very accurate and very consistent. I've never had a ball chopped by the barrel and the balls almost never curve. The one downside I found, is that the middle section can be screwed in either way, though there is in fact a front and back. If you screw it in wrong, then there will be a sharp edge inside where the back and middle section meet. I discovered this when every ball I shot sprayed out. After I screwed it in right, I haven't had a chopped ball since. One other problem I had with the gun was that the little lip that holds the O-ring on on the back section had to be sanded down to fit right.

But my favorite thing about it is the reactions when you show up at the field with it. It's very intimidating! For some reason everybody always seems to want to be on my team.
Conclusion: It's an awesome barrel. The mixed reviews may be due to the fact that you can put the barrel together backwards and never even realize it. Buy it, it will be worth your money!

Barrels don't chop paintballs, bolts do.

You listed "lack of directions" in the weaknesses of the barrel? Sounds like it's your weakness. Why would a freaking barrel need directions? Here, I can help:
Step one: Take the barrel out of the package.
Step two: Screw it on your dang gun!
Now, that wasn't so hard, was it?
And you've been doing this for 4 years?!

Nice genius. barrels do chop balls. ever tried taking a bt m-16 barrel to an r/t system? i installed a 50 dollar bolt, new and hooked this all up. it's chops the sh*t out of them. and if the paint sucks, it's easy to break them in the barrel.
