Products Used:
J & J ceramic, stock barrels, PMI, Tippmann Werks
Marker Setup: 2 Tippmann 98 Customs, 1 Model 98, Spyder Compact, Tippmann .68 Carbine, Ariakon Overloard, many Wal-Mart nugzzz
Strengths: Looks, reasonably accurate considering it's length, very robust, and price
Weaknesses: Price; accuracy of barrel itself not worth $100, but you get both barrel and handguard.
Review: First off, I have this for the 98. It's the same exact product, just different threading, and since there is no review of the 98's version I figured I just review this one. It's the same thing, just different threads, so no big deal.

Anyways, there's price. I think it's expensive, and that $75 dollars would definately be a good price, but then again compared to other alternatives (BT, Pro-team, etc), it's either the same price or cheaper. I have a good friend who has the BT kit, and compared to the OpsGear kit, it's inferior in all aspects. The accuracy of the barrel isn't as good, the quality of the materials and construction isn't as good, and they're both the same price.

The accuracy is decent, and considering it's a 10" barrel I'd say good, but not great or outstanding.

Today I went out to an narrow ally behind my fence to test out my friend's new MR2 (awesome marker!) and to plink with my marker. We set up a trashcan lid at 80 feet, the maximum length of the ally. From this distance, using $35 Wal Mart paint, I emptied half a hopper and had every shot land on the lid. I think this is pretty darn good for a 10" barrel, so I'm going to up my rating to a 9.

Definately a 10 out of 10 in this area. It's not going to break on you. Holding my friend's BT kit, it feels like it might break if you're extremely abusive on it, but the Ops kit feels great.
Conclusion: If you want to get an M16 barrel kit, go with OpsGears. It's either the same price or cheaper than other M16 kits, and it out performs the others.
