Barrel produced by Empire Paintball. It is internally rifled to produce more of a predictable trajectory shot after shot. Made from polished 6061 composite g-aluminum. Comes in lengths of either 12",14", or 16".
The Empire Twister Barrel is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
The way it rifles inside the barrel and it hasn't busted a ball yet.
It only comes in black.
It looks just like a rifle inside the barrel. It is the best barrel I have ever used. All the people who will read know i'm right. If you have $60 and you are looking for a barrel this is the one to buy. Everyone needs to give it a try. I promise you will love it. So give it a try.
Diablos - Splash is good, and Dusks are the best for me. Awesome balls, never break, always accurate, fairly inexpensive
As you can tell I haven't been playing long and I don't have the greatest gun in the world. But with the twister barrel I turned my pretty terrible gun into a new level. I've been able to beat Spyder Imagine's and Spyder Compact's easily with this combonation. Not only is this barrel a miracle, this barrel looks phat as hell. I love it when people gaze down the barrel at the rifling. I would suggest this barrel to any player, and it works miracles when combined with a Spyder gun.
Awesome! Definantly worth the money, I would recommend this barrel to anyone!

02 Vertical Autococker, CP Drop, Empire 10 Piece barrel system
Diablo Blaze, or Team colors
The internal rifleing helps improve accuracy. The outside looks cool. On a decent marker the barrel works good.
When using this barrel with a cheap marker such as a rebel it doesn't do the barrell much justice. Cheap paint like brass eagle doesn't help either. If you get a break in the barrel it can be a pain to clean.
This barrel is a good barrel for the same price as some of the same types out on the market. If you have a cheap marker dont get this barrel unless you want to be disappointed. Other than those few things I would recomend this barrel to anyone.

Nothing works all that great just make shure the paint is as perfect as you can get to looking like a sphere for best results.
Can go through brush
Get in 12, 14, 16in
Variety of threads
Ball beaks cause HUGE range of spread
Not easy to clean
This barrel is not a good choice for either woodsball or speedball. If your a woodsballer with a Tippmann go for a flat line. If you dont have a Tippmann just get something that doesn't have Internal Rifling. Same for speedball go for a 2 piece like All American or Ultralight or higher up. The whole idea for a rifle barrel in paintball is a bad one. With a real rifle your are shooting bullets which are metal and dont change in shape like a paintball so the bullet spirals all the way down unlike a paintball which isn't perfectly round so it goes out of control with a rifle barrel. Trust me from about 20 yards the spread was big enough to not hit a basket ball back board. Not every time but out of a hopper(185) about 20 wont hit. That's not that good now is it?
NOTE-(I was using a 16in to)
Well what have we learned to day. Was it not to waste your money on a Internal Rifling barrel. Oh that was it.
goood enough ones that are round. MUST BE ROUND FOR GOOD RESULTS
I have been using the really old version of this barrel. so old it doesnt have a logo. but it still shoots awesome! i love it!
the rifeling helps with accuracy but only if your using good/round paint.
the black color goes with my tippy:)
and the porting, if you watch very carefully, you can see the co2 gas come out at an angle
another cool thing with this barrel. where a was shooting one day. some newbs with rentals came on the field. so one was hiding behind a window cut-out. i waited for him to stick his hopper out. so i aimed, waited, and took about ONE shot. BAMM!!!! right where i was aiming! he got so mad at me. but it was a game. so he was cool with it
Good barrel if you dont mind having to buy slightly better paint
taking off a point because of needind to have good paint

This is one of the best barrels that I have ever used. I am a true believer that the rifling in the barrel actually helps with accuracy and distance. I hit a guy with this barrel at 50 yards in the side of the head with one shot. I was amazed. That is what made me a believer, now it is all I use.
Buy it. Don't think about it, Buy it. You won't regret it.
Stock barrels from a Spyder and Odyssey RPM
so none i guess
Special Coprs Torque Loader
Empire Twister Barrel
32 Degrees Drop Forward
32 Degrees Gauge
Cleaning it after a break is a pain
This barrel is very accurate, i can hit a light post dead on at well over 150 yards.
it looks great, ive always loved the empire logo. ive only had 1 break with this barrel, not entireley sure, but i say it was the gun. and due to the rifling it can be a pain to get all the paint out of it and leave it clean again.
sells retail for 100 when it was new, got mine for 18 dollars of ebay
Great barrel, buy if you get a chance, you wont be dissapointed
The stock barrel and it had an accuracy of about a 2ft at some points, nothing some and perfect others. Erratic
Kingman Spyder Sonix Pro, with red paint rubbed off( looks nicer)
-Empire Twister Barrel
hoping for a Trinity CO2 Gauge, 32Degree Expansion Chamber, and a Drop forward
So far i tested it with some Brass Eagle Monster Balls
I am thinking of using Some High Impacts
Rifling looks good
It got a little tight on my gun.
-I like the rifling inside the barrel, i am not sure whether or not it really does anything important in accuracy, but it is highly likely.
-It looks really cool as the Empire Logo landed perfectly on the side of my spyder sonix pro ( not in some strange Awkward position)
-The accuracy of the gun is very good in comparison to my stock barrel as it maintained 10"-12" of accuracy in the spot i was shooting.
-I screwed it onto my gun and tested it and when i was done i tried to get it off and it was really tight, which to me was more of an inconvenience than anything. It would be a bad thing if i needed to take it off in play for quick repair, but other than that yeah.
It is a great barrel that looks awesome with its design on the barrel, and the cool rifling. It was very accurate with the few rounds that i fired and i honestly recommend it to anyone who may need a new barrel, and wants a good one.
