Armson has combined their newest SSR (Straight-Stepped-Rifling) technology into an incredible two piece barrel design. Muzzle ends area available in several lengths to allow you to change barrel lengths in seconds.
The Armson SSR Barrel is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Pirahna STS with: Armson 16in, 9 volt hopper, and sight
kick'n (don't ever use big ball)
this barrel is wicked amsome, it is very accurate (goods for picking of guys that have small body parts hanging out, and shoots longer then anything i have seen, less than a boomstick
picky with paint, , hard to clean except if you get a straight shot then cleaning is a breeze. besides that nothing that makes it not worth the money. it is definetily worth it to get one i think it is the best barrel out there
better then boomstick for the money and accuracy and range,and everything, so if you have the money and are looking for a good aftermarket barrel go out nad get one.
22-stage Core expansion chamber, 8" black magic drop forward, Armson SSR 16", 12v revy, Cyclone III bolt, homemade stock, raised sight rail w/Armson sight
marbs or better
--Shoots absolutely straight --------------------->
--Easy Cleaning two piece
--Fires through break extremely well. (dry fire 5-8 times and its back to 95%%)
--Cheaper and overall better than a Dye Boomer or for that matter, any Dye (cept maybe titanium series but how many average joe's can afford that????)
--Barely ever breaks paint! 1-1500
--Has a tendancy to fire with top spin so the balls drop off sharp every now and again......this only occurs when firing with heavy velocity pressure!
--My barrel came and the two pieces didn't match perfectly when you look down the barrel but hell......didn't affect accuracy at all as far as i'm concerned.
--16" may be a lil long......takes more CO2 per shot to get it at a good distance......heavy pressure tanks may affect accuracy with this barrel as with any.
This Armson is a great barrel overall. The only thing I would suggest is getting a 13", it will be just as deadly and not as CO2 costly........if your not completely sure about it, EMAIL me.....i'll give you more info.......armson stealths are worth a look also.
Honestly I think Armson still has some fine tuning to do on their Straight-Stepped Rifling but as of now it's pretty damn good. ARMSON ALL THE WAY!

16" Armson SSR Rifled Barrel, BSA Red Dot scope, Dead On 8 Stage Expansion Chamber, Macroline, 32* Gel Grips
Diablo Heat paintballs fit this barrel like a glove, also anything that is medium bore.
Accuracy, Silence is golden, Less costly than Dye Boomstick, but more accurate. uber efficient
I have owned this for a while now and the barrel is awesome with the right paint, of course this is a must for any barrel. I would recemend this barrel to anyone who wants an accurate, quite barrel, with the money to buy good paint (Diablo RULES!!!).
This barrel is troublesome on rainy days because the rain goes into barrel through porting and throws off the rifling. It loses a point for this. It also loses a point for the high price. Other than that the barrel is excellent, but there are better barrels out there, they are few and far between.
Excellent barrel, go get one worth the money and chalk up some kills.

13" Armson SSR
OCC Rear Cocking mod on bolt
Blue Kapp Cocking rod
CIP 15 deg Assault block
Bob Long mini-gauge
32 Degrees 03 6 stage exp chamber
CP Flame drop foward
small bore paint-- marbalizers are good
interchangeable muzzle lengths
I purchased this barrel a little bit ago and am so far pleased with it. Its accurate and I like the idea of interchangeable muzzle lengths. You can easily change from 13inches to 16inces. Plus this barrel just looks plain cool. It does tend to be paint picky and you may break a ball or two when first trying it out. The important thing is to find the right paint. Marbalizers work good with this and i havent had any problem with using them. Clean up is a little challenging though. The small ports and the straight stepped rifling inside the barrel can leave little patches of uncleaned paint in the barrel. I usually go over it with a swab twice after clean up just to make sure its clean.
Bottomline: if looking for an accurate barrel and dont want to spend a ridiculous amount of money on a boomstick, get the ssr. You wont be discouraged with your purchase-- the only thing is making sure to find the right paint.....and never use BE paint wit this....can you say soup? I would recommend this barrel to anyone as an upgrade barrel or recball/ tourney barrel.

Flatline Barrel/ Armson SSR
Smart Parts 20oz Anti-Siphon tank W/ on-off switch
Diablo Dusk/ RPS Premium
Accuracy, Quiet, consistant
None so far
This is a very high quality product and an original one because of the SSR Rifling that actually takes away all of the spin on the ball. This rifling greatly adds to the accuracy, range and overall performance of this barrel. One time while I was using this barrel I shot a 10" by 10" target six times from about 80 feet and hit it five times.
Definetly buy this barrel!!! It will not let you down.
Smart Parts drop foward
Hyper Frame (Center Flag)
Revolution Hopper (12 volt)
This barrel shot 6 month old paint like it was new, I put paintball after paintball on top of each other at 75 feet (With old paint and the bag was opened the whole time.)
With my ProSeries i could out shoot any barrel; therefore, I thought you couldn't beat an Armson ProSeries, but the Armson SSR just blows it away.
The barrel looks sweet too.
Dont waste $50 on crappy aftermarket barrel, get this barrel and your save in the long run (more accurate=less misses=less paint=more money for you).
