chrono'd my stock barrel on the 98 custom and also the flatline, had it down to 290-295 avg... any higher i would be too hot and just out of curiosity pushing the limits, turned it up more and started breaking paint in the barrel. accuracy was ok on the stock, the accuracy on the flatline sucks. the flat line had distance, but no velocity at the further end of it's long range making it hard to break paint on people. then i screwed on the Palmer nickel plated vented brass barrel. OMG! just for a comparison of the 3...no adjustments other than screwing on a new barrel what was chrono at 295 w/ the tippmann barrels was instantly 369 on the palmer barrel. turning it down to proper level will help on the gas consumpion as well...very accurate! very consistant!
kinda plain...ok for people that are more concerned with performance than looks
AWESOME BARREL! i am just lucky enough to live in the same town as the palmer store so i get to try things out before i buy them...by the way..that is the only place i have been able to do this at...according to the manager "sure you can try it out! we have confidence in our products!"
secondary for turney use mainly
bob long dark timmy
ultra evil, marbs, almost anything
Only weight but thats not too much of an issue
One of the guys i play with suggested that i try out his palmer barrel and i must say that i was very impressed. I play pump more than anything so i notice more when a barrel isnt shooting as accuratly as id like. I used this on my outkast and noticed a difference right away. It shot more consistanly than any barrel that i have ever used and though i only tested this barrel from the results that i had i will purchase one and sell of the other barrels i own cause nothing i have ever shot compares to this barrel
Buy this product it will be the last barrel you ever need to buy
PFHR automag with gas thru grip 68/3000 hpa. barrel is a 12 inch vented & nickle plated
Any mainly run star ball.
Quality, quiet, Can drive nails with it.
Cost could be a weakness if it wasnt worth every penny. Weight ?
Well first off I bought this barrel with an automag used. Bought the gun to get the barrel. Having been around paintball for 10+ years I had seen but never owned a palmer barrel before. Had spoke with owners & even tried a couple just had a hard time justifying the cost. I got it used for a steal. With getting to play with it a few times I am really kicking my self for not getting one before. I ended up getting rid of my other mag barrels. The quality & workmanship of this barrel has got me looking at buying a palmer marker. The first time I hit the crono station with it at a big game a kid in line was freaked because it was so quiet. I havent broke any paint in the mag so I am not sure if there are any issues with the barrel after a ball break.
cant recommend this barrel enough. Really shows the difference between a company that is in the "business" of paintball versus one that loves the sport.
Lapco autospirit, Smart Parts progressive, and Boomstick
Dye autocoker, Palmers Stabilizer, palmers pneumatics, blade trigger, 68/45 conquest, and now a Palmers Barrel.
Well first it looks good, a nice finish no scrathces and it actually shines it's not dull. Works VERY well w/RPS premium,but if you ask Glenn he can make it whatever bore size you want. I use it all the time and each shot lands right on top of each other, from 30-40 ft away! They actually work very good even if you have a shorter barrel. I have a 10" and it works just as good if not better than my boomstick which is 14"
Well its kinda heavy compared to most barrels (but it actually helped to balance my gun) If you break Paint you need a squeegie! Cuz its way off after that. May be a little pricey for some, but its worth it.
Even w/a couple bads I still think this barrel is a 10. If you have the money don't go buy another barrel of the same price range buy this. You won't be dissapointed.
Dye SS 14"
Smart Parts All American 14"
AGD Crownpoint 11"
Armson rifled 10"
68 Automag PF
Palmer Stabilizer reg
Medium to large such as RP Marb or bigball
Very accurate and great range with less paint breakage ( I'm using 0.692 ID ).
Look very nice with its ported and Nickel plated.
The only thing I think its a weight . A much more heavy compared with aliminum barrels.
This is a state-of-the-art barrel made!!! If you can affort for above $100 . Palmer barrel was custom made to your specify order , before buying you should email direct to Glenn Palmer and tell him what would you like or his advise. Should be the last barrel for you.
