Accuracy sucks after a break, and it doesn't shoot clean.
I'm using a 12" CP barrel on a Model 98. I always shoot Marbalizers. I am very impressed with the accuracy. The only problem is after a break, I need to run the squeegie through, trying to shoot it clean doesnt get me anywhere. However the only time I have gotten a lot of breaks is when using bad paint, I've had almost no breaks when using Marbalizer. I paid less than $30 for the barrel, so I am happy with it.
cheap available in any bore size color and length for any gun quiet accurate if you match the paint to the barrel more gas efficient than most 2 peices
the only problems you may have is if you dont match paint properly to the barrel if the paint is to small it will hook like crazy if it fits its dead nuts accurate
these barrels are excellent for the price buying all 3 bore sizes allows you to shoot almost all barands of paint with the exception of super small (under.685) and super big (over .693) but then again the cahnces you will ever shoot any paint of that nature is slim to nill
The barrel has good accuracy, even though mine was a 10" model. I found the CP barrel shot fairly clean following a break with onlyr four or five additional shots. The finish on the nickel barrel was very good, and I also found it was also very good on a 16" med bore for a Tippmann 98 I had. The interior finish was average for a barrel in this price range. I found the physical design of the barrel to be pleasing as well. CP's also come in three different bore sizes and four different lengths (bores are .685, .689, and .693 I believe, lengths are; 10", 12", 14" . and 16" ) with a wide variety of finishes to match your guns' anodization including 24K gold for a few dollars more ($$$). Barrel had a quiet noise signature as well, with porting roughly half way down to 10" barrel.
I noticed my barrel, after a year on my Defiant, has developed very light scoring running lengthwise along the interior of the barrel, although it has not affected accuracy it seems.
I had a .685 bore, 10" nickel CP barrel with 'Cocker threads on my Defiant and 16" black .689 I tested on a Tippmann 98. I found Zap Pro worked well in the .685 'Cocker/Defiant barrel, and the .689 shot some 32Degrees Team Colors paint well, while some Team Colors paint fit the .685 'Cocker/Defiant barrel better. I think the barrel is worth around $50.00, only if Lapco does not have the size/color/bore you want. I would reccommend them to anyone, but not over the .689 Lapco BigShot or .686 Lapco Autospirit. However, if they needed a barrel to match their anodizing, or wanted a shorter or longer length than Lapco has, I would likely reccommend the CP barrels. They do not compare favorabaly with the interior finish of the Lapco barrels, Smart Parts, J&J, DYE, BOA, or Bob Long barrels I've seen, but they have a decent price and a wide selection with anodizing matching many of the guns on the market today.
This is a GREAT barrel! First of all, its very
inexpensive.You could get it for about 40 at about any
paintball store or internet. Another good thing about it is
the cosmetics of the barrel. They come in a wide range of
colors and lengths as well. They also look damn good! These
barrels are very attractive and very nice looking on any
gun that you place it on. The accuracy on this barrel is
VERY good. I use the 14'' nickel for my spyder TL plus, and
with the adco hot shot and from about 50-60 feet away hit
all of my targets on the DOT! it was very accuracte and has
good range. Its a medium bore barrel, With the paint that I
used (zap) I shot about 300 rounds with no ball brakes or
anythin fo the sort. This is a really good barrel!
There isn't anything bad about this barrel, looks great,
shoots great, accurate, range is good, and afforadable as
I would reccommend this barrel to anyone! This is probably
the best barrel you could get for the money. IT looks
great, comes in many different colors and lengths. It
shoots great! Good accuracy and range! and also fits good
with medium bore paints. This is a great barrel for the
money and anyone looking to get a barrel upgrade, be it
from stock or from another barrel, shoud pick this barrel
stock barrels on the black maxx ,98, my bt aswell as a piranha.
98: ok it was the best for stock.
black maxx: no porting on barrel making it loud and was very innacurate.
BT-4 combat stock: right in between the black maxx and 98 but it can shoot way further due to the porting, not as accurate as 98 tho.
piranha G3: stock was ridiculously accurate untill about 20 feet.

Dont use cheap XO stuff as 5 in 1000 will break. go for the cheap but good stuff by valken sports. fill isnt great but the ball shoots great and breaks on impact.
Increase of power and accuracy.
Ball on ball accuracy with certain paint,
A tad bit paint picky. Dont try to use spectrum. Its denty anyways.
After a while using the barrel stock i got sick of the innacuracy of ny stock 8.5 in barrel and thought i needed something a little more accurate. i was tight on money and only had 40$ CDN so i was either going to get a jj ceramic a smart parts linear or the cp.after reading somethings and talking to people about it they recommended the cp. even the guy at my local pball store said it was a better choice.so i went out and grabbed it.the first time i used it i felt good cuz there was 2 guys one with a smart parts linear and one with a j an j ceramic and they were having a barrel break fest. like i would always see thenn running squeegees thru there guns and stuff so i stayed alert. i was using up the last 500 of my valken break paintballs when i ran out. i got a case of xo spectrum which was 30 bucks and went to go play. after 100 rounds i had a break. i realised it was the paint.
The barrel shoots great , but dont use xo paint in it plz some will break........... or if you do go for v1 and camotac... gets a nine cuz u cant use cheap paint.
Lapco Bigshot = smaller diameter, doesn't look nice, but perfect for medium size balls
Stiffi = big diameter, perfect inside surface, look nice, need big old fashion ball for accuracy
CP 12" 1 piece barrel
Crossfire Red 68ci 4500psi
Everything else is stock
Do not use small balls
Use at least .685 balls
Require big balls
Not every CP barrel meets quality standard.
Do not upgrade your stock barrel unless you know what kind of paintballs you will be using. I recommend every professional player to have a GDT measuring tools with .0005 accuracy. These tools can be used to measure the diameter of the ball that you want to use for your barrel. A stock tippmann barrel will have more accuracy than the CP barrel if the paintball fits the stock tippmann barrel more.
These barrels are made from a machine shop and they are inspected to meet the standard size .689 by CP. Not every barrel is perfectly inspected. They only test a coupon from each lot they build and each lot contains hundreds. There are people out there have the "non-conforming" barrel by CP. These barrels are in the market due to bad inspection.
I emailed CP to address this issue because I bought a bad one. Here is what the customer service replied, "Well when paintballs have prefect tolerances we will live in a perfectworld. They are designed for less "Non-Conforming" paintballs to give the
best accuracy possible. As far as "if thousands out there know about this"
most already do and understand why. It's not a real gun and those aren't
bullets." -from RICK (email@example.com) I exploid their low quality inspection department. They had nothing to offer me and just admit that nothing is perfect. Quite a customer service from a big company isn't it?
In conclusion, buy this barrel if you can find big balls to go with it. Use accurate measuring tools up to .0005 error to measure the paintballs.
If you bought one and it is not as describe as in pbreview for accuracy and all that, you might bought a bad one from CP.

Custom Products One Piece Barrel
anything but monster balls and dbx
Can't change bores for different paint (is one piece)
This is a great one piece barrel. It's accurate and looks nice, however it hasn't distinguished itself as being too much better than the other one piece barrels I've used. It seems to be only a little better than J&Js and smart parts barrels. They all shoot pretty similar for me if the paint is matched.
It's among the best one piece barrels below $50, but the $30 alternatives are similar in performance.

Easy To Clean
This barrel is great i had one for my piranha and now ive got one for my Ion this barrel is so accurate i beat out a couple autocockers and a Phantom(the most accurate gun i no of) in target practice and its so quit the only thing i hear from my gun when i shoot is the electronics and it just looks darn good
Man, this barrel is so good ive had ppl with freak and evil kits and stiffi barrels asking me to trade them but i wont cuz its the best and for its price u cant get anyting better
-a little less noisy
-a little more precise (Because of the 0.02 micron less)
-Not a big improvement over a stock barrel
-Unscrew itself while playing !! <- Very bad
-Gloss (Paint reflect too much the light), I prefer Dusted
-If paint break, your Doom!
I don't recommand this Barrel.
It's only a small improvement over a stock barrel.
Yes it's going to be a Sharper and less noisy, but by a small margin.
No matter what others might think of this review, there is always some people who are more difficult about a product. I compared this barrel agains the best. If you broke your barrel and don't have much money to spend, then this might be a good solution, otherwise, NO!
