Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
The "HUB" is where all the pieces join together the threading patterns are one of a kind. The barrel body screws in with standard right hand threads and the boar screws in with left hand reverse threads, the way the three pieces join makes the inside of the barrel almost seamless and offers perfect alignment of all three pieces. The "HUB" is where it all happens, and is truly an engineering breakthrough. Unique milling breaks up profile of barrel. The interchangeable boar is unique because of it's threading and the way it's screwed into the "HUB" via the "BOAR TOOL". The threads on the long end can be reverse or standard to suit a players needs, while the short end treads are standard this makes the boar easy to change and real secure when screwed together. The boar is removed with a boar tool which is included with the barrel, the boar comes in various sizes for different paintballs and weather conditions.

whatever, it's a kit. i shoot evil and marballizer mainly.
Strengths: Flexability of a kit. Light, quiet, accurate, nice looking, durability, quality.
Weaknesses: I guess the price. Only comes in angel and autococker threads.
Review: barrel kit- comes in .685 .689 .693 and .695. i wish it came with a .687 as well, but you can't have everything.

light- not quite as light as a carbon fiber barrel, but lighter than an ultralight.

quiet- good porting makes it quieter than most other barrels, especially the pipe.

durable- the inserts are thick. like the thickness of some barrels kind of thick. there's no way you will bend them without some serious force applied.

quality- it's well made with a good anno put onto it. on most kits there is a fairly large seam between the insert and front. on the orbium, the seam is very minute.

looks- looks better than most barrels available in my opinion. also, the porting at the end gives it a somewhat of a machinegun barrel look, making it look a bit mean.

price- it is a bit exspensive compared to other kits. but let me put it this way, you could spend 100 or so and get a freak. but you do end up getting what you pay for.

the only other downside i can even think of is the logos. i tend to not like logos on my barrel, but i'd rather have the SM-1 with logos than not have my SM-1 at all.
Conclusion: If you have the money, and an angel or autococker, I reccomend this kit as opposed to others.

Review: I got the FMA SM-1 Orbium 3 kit from Bob Moon at Fix My Angel. This custom kit is amazing. Its annoed to match the WDP finishes, and comes in a hard custom case w/dense foam padding. The 3 tips12", 14" and 16" and four backs make for all the barrels you'll ever need out on the field, no matter what position you're playing. The 4 inserts .684, .689, .693 and .695 have matched up pretty well with what i've shot here in the last couple weeks. Havent had a chop in it yet so i dont know how it clears itself, but the porting looks great for it.
Conclusion: If you can afford it buy this kit, It looks awesome and shoots even better

Review: this barrel is amazing!! i would hasate to buy it if you have the money. i got mine for free =D its VERY accurate!!!! QUITE!!!!!!!! it really inproved my efficency. my old barrel was at 300 fps and once i put it on it went up to 320 fps!!!! if you want a top barrel.... get this!!!!!
the best thing is that if you want to put it on a different threaded gun you just have to get a different insert!!!! =)
Conclusion: Get it if you have the money!!!!!!!!!!!!!
