With this you get to pick the front length (10, 12, 14 inch) + the back end (bore dimensions: .685, .687, .689, .691 and .693) They are the most accurate barrel WGP has ever made.
In 2004, WGP released the STO Kaner barrel kit. It includes five backs (.682, .684, .687, .689, .691) and three fronts (12", 14", 16"). The backs have also grown in length to ease removal when the front piece seperates and the back is stuck on the gun.
The Worr Game Products Kaner Barrel System is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

have not found any that it didn't like, I only used three types though, cheap, mid, and premium. Geneirc off brand I used PMI I used and durauxx paint
Seem to be light but built well
Only comes in cocker threads
My first impresion is this Damn this thing shoots straight and far. I have shot the freeak system the j & J 2 Pce. the boom stick. the iron man. to me the system puts them to shame. it does come in a few slect colors, black I know I have seen camo, and Red or blue I believe.
I was useing it on my AKA Viking, I palyed a few rounds with it and changed backs for the differnt paints. One Nice thing I think is that it comes with three fronts, which means, unless someone is shooting same size paint, you can have up to three barrels in case a team member needs one. And the fronts don't seem to effect the accuracy. I think it is a matter of what you peferr and wether you are a front or back player.
It Seemed for the most part to be asy to clean, and was ported well. As far as shooting through broken paint, I am not sure, I had only one ball break, and that was at the end of the game. That was my fault not the barrles fault.
The Kanner system also seems to be a quit set up with any front, and back setup. Though that may or may not matter depending on how you play.
The system is also light and seems to be well made, there again I have only tested it, so I really am not sure of how it stands up to abuse.
The accurcy is amazing to me at about the 50 I think you could litterly dot an i with it, in fact when I placed it on my viking I thought I was shooting a cocker, if you ever shot a cocker that is setup right you know what I mean. In fact it seem to have a tighter pattern.
I think this is a very good system, I am looking a little more into the system and will keep you informed. I don't think you will be disappointd by this system. I recomend it. There again this is what I notice from play a few rounds with it.
I like the idea of being able to macth your barrel to your paint, instead of paint to barrel, because most tounryes and some fields you can only use "Their paint" so matching paint to your barrel is not always an option where here you can always match barrel to paint. By the way a good way to tell if you have a good match it to take a PB and put it into the barrel, if it rolls through that is a very loose fit, if it stops, but you can blow it out with out much effort that is perfect match. If it lodges and you cannot blow it out, well that an't going to work at all without breaking paint.
That is a little information for those who did not know.

I got this barrel system because of the reviews on this site. The barrels were about $150 from doro paintball. They are very accurate and quiet. The bad thing about them is that they are threaded wrong....what i mean is....when you put this barrel on your cocker, you tighten it just like any other barrel...righty tighty. The drawback is is that when you go to take it off your marker you will have problems with this. because of the pneumatics on the front, the back is very hard to grab a hold of so you have to loosen it from the front piece. Well the front piece will loosen off before the back piece will. now you have a back piece on that you cant grab to loosen. If they would reverse the thread on the front piece making it tighten to the back piece when you go to take it off...it will loosen the back piece therefore taking BOTH pieces off at the same time...problem solved.....but its not like that. If your like me...i just leave my .689 back piece on and don't take it off until i break the marker down at the end of each day.
I like this barrel system.....but it needs some rethinking on the threading....other than that it shoots well and looks good. I give it a 7 because of the threading.

looks pretty cool
Not that acurate
balls curve (barrle is clean)
only for cockers
I really like how this barrel looks but it just doesnt seem to perform that well. This barrel has very poor distance and the acuracy is ,in my opinion, poor also. I have tried all the barrel lenghts and it doesnt seem to improve.
I then hook up the Evil Pipe and it really puts this barrel to shame. Only thing is that the pipe is louder.
This barrel doesnt self clean also.
nice idea of different bores and lenghts but for the price go with an EVIL PIPE, or
a boomstick or ultralite is a really nice barrel to.
Well dont buy this barrel. Much better ones out there for your money.
WGP makes excellent products, but im kinda dissapointed with this one.
I seriously never give a product lower then a 7 unless it really doesnt perform well. I use almost all wgp product on my cocker and love everyone of them but i am very very dissapointed with this system. EVIL PIPE and cocker just seem to go together in my opinion

Smart parts ion

any rps or draxxus
rps bigball for the larger bores
No barrel breaks so far
Tip is pain to remove the first time
I use the 14" 2piece .691 bore, and yea theres gona be a ball rolling problem with the larger bore sizes so get some big bore paint, i use the rps big ball with these and there dead on accurate. The barrel kit aint that cheap but its worth it, great looks, lenghts, choices, amazing accuracy, although distance could be better its fine with me.
Great barrel kit, looks great and dead on accurate, put a oring on the back threads so it dosnt stick and ur ready to go. i give this an 8.5 ..but rounds up to 9.

-Front sometimes comes off, but the back wont
+Accuracy- at around 50'-60' i shot a 5" pattern with 5 shots.
+Variety- there is 3 fronts (10",12", and 14") and 5 backs (.682, .684, .687, .689, and .691)
+Design- it has the WGP logo on the backs and neat diamond designs also.
+Porting- the porting is one of its best features, the angled ports blow the air back, so the person getting shot hardly hears anything.
-when taking off the barrel the front will sometimes come loose before the back does making it difficult to remove.
Overall i really liked this barrel alot. its sexy, accurate and not that bad of a price. By all means if you are having doubts about purchasing a barrel system, consider looking into this kit first.

None so far, mabey a 0.695 back
This is a great barrel kit....it has a nice range of sizes and it looks good.
The longer backs have dual roles (in theory):
1) The extral length clears the front pneumatics of the autococker so when removing the barrel if the tip unscrews then you still have a decent amount of barrel to grab onto.
2) (Theory) With the longer back, which is the sized piece, the ball travels thru a longer piece of barrel with the choosen bore size thus it should help to increase the accuracy because of that little bit of extra length...or so I believe.
The barrels are pretty light and screw together nice and tight, when you look down the barrel it's kind of hard to see where the 2 sections of the barrel meet, and the hoaning looks silky smooth.
The barrel seems to made of good quality metal that can take a lickin' and keep on spittin' straight...I've got a couple of friends that has slid into a bunker and bent or broke their barrels....I slide in harder than them and fall sometimes (kind of clumsy I guess) and I re-gain my composure, and lay down strings of paint....no damage....and it's a good looking barrel.
I also like the simplicity of just a 2 piece barrel instead of the 3 pieces of the Freak, and others.
If you have a cocker threaded gun this barrel wont dissapoint you...I give it a 9 because I did not buy it for real cheap (I'm cheap) and it could use a .693 or .695 back instead of the small .682

Zap shoots really well through this, so primer, torque, amp, chronic
Quiet, Accurate, Longer Backs, Cleans in 2-3 shots
This is the best barrel kit I've ever used. This thing is pretty quiet, definately more silent than other barrel kits out there. It's smoothe, micro-honed backs make for a smoothe traveling surface for the balls to fly through, making the barrel very accurate. It's got improved, longer backs, making it easier to get off a cocker. Best of all, if you chop (I havent but i have busted a ball in the barrel on purpose to see how wel it cleaned) the barrel cleans itself. Just shoot 2-3 shoots, and voila, it's clean. It has 5 backs, 3 fronts so you have alot of choices with this barrel. By far the best barrel I've ever used.
This barrel gets a 10. It's the best barrel kit I've ever used. Better than a freak, ultra-lite/boomstick, or anything on the market.
I have shot some autocockers with Freak Barrels and the Kaner is as accurate (probably more accurate) than the Freak!
03' Black Magic Autococker, PMI 68ci00 psi Nitro, Kaner System
almost anything! I shot some RPS Big Ball when testing this system, and it shot with near perfect accuracy. You have four different backs so you can fit most anything.
Accuracy, adjustability, great looking, and quiet.
none that I have found
This barrel system blew me away with the accuracy. My cocker was accurate before I bought the Kaner but now it is unreal!! I haven't ever used a barrel that could consistantly shoot RPS Big Ball nearly perfectly. I know that there are die hard Freak fans out there but trust me the Kaner is just as accurate (probably more accurrate) than the Freak and for less money. You can get it in straight black color or in black and chrome. This is the best thing that I have bought for my marker!
If you want that precision accuracy that the orracle stock barrel has, then buy the Kaner System! The adjustabilty is awesome. All three front are extremly accurate. Buy This!!!
Stock 03 wpg barrel and intimidator assassins barrel
03 wpg vert cocker orracled out.
i ususally shoot the cheap stuff and the barrels work good with them
I think they should have color options
I got my kit when they first came out and have been using them since. Love the accuracy and the ability to change bore and length. I paid 175 but i have 3 tips and only 4 backs. Great buy since you get so many options and i think they are great barrels. I am using them on my 2k5 tim now.
LAPCO Bigshot - cannot change bore size or length, loud.
Stock 'cocker barrel - Ditto, but worse.
32 degrees Carbon Fiber barrel - ditto, but quiet.
2k3 Darkside blackout autococker
Any medium to high grade paintball should be fine.
Read review body.
For the strengths...
Interchangeable bores allow you to stop any rollouts, which is superb for 'cocker users.
Quiet - I like it, some might not.
Adjustable length - I prefer the 14" front myself, but if I want, I can shorten it by 4".
Looks superb - It comes in many different color combinations, so you can get it to look superb on most anything.
Very accurate - With a HPA tank and a consistent regulator, it's bloody near ball on ball accuracy.
The threading on the back/front section is set so that if you haven't tightened it enough, you can unscrew the front, leaving the back stuck onto your marker. If you shoot a 'cocker this can be especially difficult, as it's hard to unscrew the back without damaging your pneumatics. This creates the problem of not being able to screw the barrel in tightly enough to keep it in place all game, so it may come partially unscrewed. It's not a big problem, but it can be annoying.
Also, it comes in a terrible case. For the price, I'd expect something with a zipper and padding at least.
Overall, I'm very satisfied with the performance of my kaner kit. It's quiet, efficient, and is very customizable. I hate the case, so I'm gonna try and buy a new one. But as far as performance goes, it's great. Except for the whole threading bit, but I don't care much about that.
