The Hammerhead MoFo is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
the first time i used this barrel i went to a field when it was closed so there was no chronograph to use, because the barrel is rifled there is alot less contact surface for the paintballs to touch, which makes the ball go faster with less air. when i first started to shoot i was not happy at all because the balls after about 40 feet had a huge arc. after that long drive home being pissed the whole way, because i spent a bit of cash on this barrel that shot way worse than my stock barrel, i called hammerhead and they asked if i chronoed my gun... i said no. they said these barrels only shoot laser straight if its between 265-285 fps. So every time since then ive went to a field and chronoed it, HOLY CRAP its dead on. i can stack paintballs on top of each other from 50 ft away when using good paint
I will never buy another barrel after using this one
I have tested the barrel next to Stiffi's, Sly and other none carbon wrapped barrels. I shot the sly before I changed to the Hammerhead.
In looking at the barrels they all seemed well made, but worry about the chipping of the sly at the tip do to not having a protective cap of some sort at the end of the barrel as the other two did. I was impressed with the aluminum rifle lining that made up the inner barrel of the Hammerhead.
In my testing I used a chono, gun support, targets at 30ft, 50ft, 75ft, 100ft, and used a flat open field to conduct the testing. I had 3 other individuals that assisted in the testing that their primary task was to confirm accuracy of the testing.
The sly and the Hammerhead were to two most accurate out of the three. The Hammerhead being just a hair better at the closer targets, but didn't see a lot of difference. Now, there was quite a difference when it came to the targets that were further away. I noticed the MoFo could deliver a longer shot with less velocity than the other two. The MoFo seems to shoot best right around 275-280 FPS. I had to raise the other barrels velocity to reach the distance of the MoFo at a lower velocity. I'm sure this is do to the rifling. It also seem to travel about 10 to 15 feet further when testing which of the three could shot the furthest.
The Hammerhead MoFo is an awesome barrel and going to be the main barrel that is in my arsenal. I would suggest it first over any other barrel out there.

Virtued PMR with a Halo and a 14 inch Hammerhead MoFo
Quality paint! AKA Evils, Marbs, Formula 13, or even Zap Spanks Nothing too brittle
Maybe even RPS big balls
Accurate, VERY LIGHT, little porting (Less gas lost) Carbon fiber, quiet
Inaccurate above 290 fps, hard to clean out, short control bore
This barrel is AMAZING!!!!!11!!11oneoneone
I shot a guys barrel poking out from a bunker on the other side of the field with this barrel! It shoots very accurate and just looks EPIC, Its very very light, the fin probably weighs as much as the entire barrel since its carbon fiber. I can get guys masks from across the field, I see the difference because i'm a Back/Mid player.
The rifling may not have anything to do with it, I don't know or even care, it just shoots accurate, I think its because theres very little friction between the barrel and paintball because the rifling, and remember to Keep the velocity under 290, this barrel is NOTICEABLY more accurate than the dye Boomstick also, the Boomstick was WAY better than my stock Proto barrel but this thing just DESTROYS the Boomstick, they shoot about the same in close range, but the groupings are very good at longer ranges and much better than the boomstick.
The only thing is that its not that quiet its slightly more quiet than my stock pmr barrel, and if thats a make or break thing for you just buy a tip for it for around 20 bucks to make it quieter.
Also if you buy this dig in the box a little bit, there will be a little thingy of lithium grease hidden under the packing peanuts, It helps screw in and unscrew the fins and barrel and keeps it from getting stuck.
THIS IS AMAZING!!!!!!! Out shoots my Boomstick and destroys my stock barrel! The rifling works and it works GOOD.
Just make sure to not to overbore and keep velocity under 290 FPS.
I give it a 9 because you cant do 300 fps with this barrel to use it for its full potential. Maybe the guys in Hammerhead will find out a way to perfect this nearly perfect barrel.
9 out of 10
