They are available for most markers in 12", 14", and 16" lengths. The All American Barrels are made in two sections, a front and a back. The back of the barrel (the part that screws into the marker) is available in three bore sizes (small, standard, large). The front of the barrel (the ported section) acts as a spinning chamber. The air in front of the ball is pushed out of the holes reducing turbulence and the gases behind the ball are vented in such a way to impart a slight spin on the paintball. The All American barrel has a front section with a larger bore than the back. Fronts are available in two standard colors (black & green) and 7 splash colors (shown above).
The Smart Parts All American Barrels are newer, so they should be commonly available, both new and used.
Flatline Barrel on a Tippmann...not similar and its only for Tippmann's but if your buying a barrel for a Tippmann buy the Flatline!
I use the Spyder Imagine with a 14 in. Smart Parts All-American barrel, Supa-Fly Flush Cocking bolt, very touchy trigger adjustment, and a 12v Revolution Hopper.
Any paint, really it's not paint picky at all, never broken a ball because of the barrel (just the crappy gun! See Review on Spyder Imagine for More Details)
Increases accuracy from stock barrel by 100%+!
Very cool looking!
Not paint picky!
None whatsoever except that it doesn't match the green on my Spyder Imagine!
Well all I can say is that this is one of the best barrels for your money!
It will increase the accuracy of any stock barrel and it goes great if you have a barrel kit!
The only problems I've had with it is that it doesn't match my gun and the little tiny holy in the end are hard to get paint out of (No Biggy Though).
This barrel is a great deal. I've never had any problems with it but remember what I said Tippmann users...get the Flatline barrel!

none cuz u shouldnt have this barrel
it looks cool
RIP OFF SCAM
want to know where to get a all american for $35? try cuttin ur progressive in half, threading it and painting the front! thats ALL it is. My friend has a tricked out impulse and he was stupid enough to by an all american barrel. I told him its the same thing as his stock progressive, he didnt belive me, and said i would test it and he said no cuz he knows he is wrong. The only good thing this barrel has is looks.
UPDATE: Today i tested my freinds all american vs. his stock progressive. ( took me a while to convince him, we had to use my air and balls.)
1. we were using dusk paintballs
2. the target was 100 feet away
3. there no wind (there might have been some but you couldnt feel any)
4. it was 65* outsite
5. the gun was mounted and never moved
6. the paint was brand new
7. the paint to barrel much sucked on both barrels, the dusk is .685 and the barrels are both .689-.691
All American had a 16 inch spray radius.
Progressive had a 14 inch spray radius.
We shhot 15 balls out of each barrel. I was very pleased to proove my theory. My freind was pissed and he said "all american is still better!". I said "i just proved its worse, how can you say its better?" , he replied "it looks cooler". I will give it that, it does look cooler, but its sad that people buy barrels for $70 that perform the same as a $35 barrel. After testing the barrels on his pulse; we tested my stock TES barrels under the same conditions. The stock TES barrel had a 11 inch spray radius. The stock TES barrel also didnt have a good paint to barrel match, it is about the same size as the progressive and all american. Its very sad that a stock barrel on a veyr cheap gun can outperform a $70 barrel!
buy a progressive

-Smart Parts ion
yellow body kit
14" dye ultralite
-'96 Black Magic
16" dye ultralite
ndz blade trigger
14" all american
Any DraxXus or Diablo paintballs Or RPS, no low grades like jt, vl, be, zaps
If your looking for an awsome upgrade barrel get the all american, its a good price around $50. I have the 14" ive used it on my dads ion and was very, very accurate. With the ion i had many barrel breaks in about a 2-3 hour game. I mainly use it on my vision imp now and the accuracy is still great. Altho i am still getting multiple barrel breaks. The barrel looks awsome and flawless, porting is nice and the barrel it self is pretty light. I would say in a good game you will get about 2 or so breaks, but if ur using good newer balls you shouldnt get any, i will update this review once i get a new case of paint and is warmer out so they wount be brittle.
Get the all american and u will not regret it, Just use good paint

crown point stock automag barrel. on my extra i shot a good 2 piece i think it was a typhoon... really old barrel... my friend still uses that one..armson stealth (automag), jj ceramic (cocker), dye boomer (on an 01 cocker)
AGD Automag68 p/f left, '01 smart parts all american 12"
88/3000 fiber wrapped nitro tank, custom welded drop forward (thanks mike)
revvy (with realtree dip), gas-thru foregrip, total gun weight= 7.5lb
also...jt flex7, jt gloves , 4+1 on back, jerk/straightshot
and the bendy Qtip
something big!!!!... i have put a few kinds thru but not yet found "the match"... thank god that my agd is a good and forgiving gun... i have put these balls thru (about 1000 each):
Nelson Anarchy Fury (orange, thick as all hell andwill stain most natural fibers)
RPS Evil (gotta love the name and the fact the the shell is clear and you can see the fill)
Great American (i think they're all the same bore, but i shot the orange ones...)
Good results with all these balls... i can post and let out a string of about 10 (1-2 sec.) with them all landing on a "body" sized target from up to 100 feet. I dont think i even had a wako flier.... all straight.
top 5 strengths: 5)light weight, 4)very quiet, 3)durable, 2)PRICE, 1)ACCURATE
Probably best with large bore paint, limits your choices... oh well- - life
whether you play woods or speed, airball... whatever... this barrel will do you well... teh price is so good that you can afford to buy another barrel... probable a LAPCO, cause they are small bore for the most part. I know that i can turn to a target an put 10 balls ON it in 1-2 seconds... very accurately... thats with a non electro... i get no barrel breaks unless i am careless and shortstroke/ double feed, wich is not the barrel, its how automags are.. i like 12"... its 12 overall.. .for automag, about 2 inches actually gets plugged in to the body of the marker... so its more like a 10.5"..... my agd was already very quiet... but now its just ridiculous... and when you are making noise right next to your face you enjoy it to be as muted as possible... this barrel might be a kind of gas hog... but this is all speculation... because nobody in the paintball world has done any harcore studies, there is only specualtion that a ball needs about 6-7 inches to reach full push (speed-accuracy-form) in the barrel... since the porting kicks in after about 4 inch on this barrel you might find that you dont have the range... i dont find that... but its the theory... i do find that where i can shoot i can shoot very accurately... that was long... sorry
buy this barrel... i would have got one for the xtra i used to have... but then i bought AGD... this barrel rox the house and would make a great addition if not the main barrel in any players bag.... have fun... ps i would give the barrel a lower rating-9 if it was the same price as the higher end dye and phreak... but since its under $50 shipped... its getting 10!!!!
Accuracy and design is dated. Better can be found for less.
I own this barrel so I am quite objective and confident about its real world performance. Specifically, I have a newer 2 piece 12" All American . This barrel does perform better then a stock barrel but probably performs no better and even perhaps worse then lower end barrel's including Smart Parts own progressive or teardrop (A great barrel for a cheapie) I believe that the great flaw in this design (as mentioned by a few keen reviewers) lies in the spiral porting that takes up much or most of the forward barrel section. This limits the effective barrel lenght to the base and a very small section of the forward piece so on a 12" barrel, more then half of the barrel is nothing more then porting.
Accuracy can be best described as average to below average in this price range. If Smart Parts could condense the porting for more effective barrel lenght, this may be an improvement. Consider that a 12" barrel may only be working as a 6-7" barrel! I would give up some level of noise for a more true trajectory path. I also have the suspision that so much porting can exagerate the randomness of the paintball themselves considering my lower end SP barrels shoot better then my All American. Kinda bummed about this but that's what marketing and hype buys you nowadays.

Tippman A-5 with A2 kit from Spec Ops Paintball and coiled remote
Pure Energy 72/3000 HPA or 20 oz CO2
AGD Minimag with 14" All American Barrel, custom hopper and coiled remote
Pure Energy 72/3000 HPA or 9 oz CO2
This is the barrel I got with my used Minimag when I first started playing. After using other guns and barrels, I consistently choose this barrel with my mag when I need to snipe. I have the 14" barrel.
It is whisper quiet and very accurate. I can make 6" groups at 30 yards with this barrel in, compared to a 12" group at 30 with the stock barrel.
Since it's stainless, it is a little on the heavy side, but my mag is already heavy, so it makes little difference.
I highly recommend this barrel for its accuracy and stealth.

My last barrel was a Lapco Bigshot Barrel and the Freak kit makes it look like a stock barrel
A-5, Dead On Paintball A-5 Vertical Adapter, Dead On Paintball Grip Adaptor Block, Dead On Paintball Double Trigger Kit, Dead On Paintball Dullet Drop Forward, System X Vengeance Regulator, Pure Energy Compressed Air System, Freak Barrel Kit with All American Front and 3 inserts
I almost always use Marbalizers but obviousely when you're playing at a field you have to use their paint, and one of the really great things about this barrel is the fact that you can change out the inserts and make even really bad field paint work great
Inserts, acurracy, looks, upgradeable (buy the All American Front)
This is a great product and I would highwly recommend spending the extra money and getting it. You will definately be happy with its prefomance and all the extra time you'll save not having to clean out your gun cuz' of broken paint. Also, get the All American Front, it really increases the acurracy. BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and the All American Front

Any paintball that is close to the bore size,
-Looks(not the best but nice)
- Not much, this barrel is very nice
I bought this barrel for my b2k4 pds because the stock barrel would break a ball almost every game. I played a tourney with the stock barrel and was mad at how it always broke paint.( size was a good match, something wrong with the inside of stock barrel).
Finally i decieded to buy the all-american because a friend had one and he was deadly accurate. I remembered when he shot at my bunker the balls had a unique sound to them. After waiting for a week, the barrel came in the mail. I took it out of the bok and it looked very nice on my gun. the only bad thing was the smart parts logo was facing down. then I loaded up my gun and began to shoot ropes of paint of my deck. I shot 2 hoppers and not one break. I unloaded my marker very pleased and i could not wait for the paintball season to start.
About 1 month ago I shot my gun again and had one break. I think it was because the paint was left over form a tourney in october.(hopefully)
I shot my a hopper full again on feb 22/o6 and not one break. this barrel is so accurate.
Anyways, I am very happy with the results i have had with this barrel. even though i bought is at the end of the fall and have yet to use it in a tourney. This thing is very accurate and is perfect for any player, weither you play speedball or bushball. I would definatley reccomend buying this barrel if a kit is to exspensive and you want a sweet barrel for good money. Another good thing is if you buy a new marker with different threads, you can just buy a new back peice for the barrel for about $35. Saving you buying a new barrel. hopefully i have helped you.

05 vision shocker, AA, Halo B, 68/4500 cf Pure Energy air tank
PMI premium, evil, X.O velocity is good stuff
Wieght as far as barrels go
I got this barrel with my shocker and ya its been good, better than a pipe with one back (689) its easy to clean, accurate and it looks amzing, what else can i write about a barrel to use up 50 words? but i guess i got it with my gun and such im not sure if its a progrssive threaded or not ive never used one of those
SP barrel 16'', J&J ceramic 12'', double finger bench mark, KAPP zoneII drop forward, 8 hole mod, z-valve, 12v revvy, 88 cu in. PMI 3000k psi pure energy carbon fiber wrapped tank, and other accessories.
Any mid quality, medium to large bore paint.(marbalizer works awesome!!)
*see th bad below
-Comes in many colors and is tough to scratch
-rarely breaks paint
Whenever paint that is either low quality or too small for the bore size for a good barrel to paint match, paintballs just seem to bounce more often. This, of course, has happened to me at the most in-opportune of times i.e. an opponent is running at me for a bunker manuver. Also I reccomend a 12" barrel for your marker. Any larger and you are just wasting air from your gun to shoot.
This barrel is great for players whose marker is a bit on the loud side. It is accurate with most types of paint and definitely better than most/all stock barrels.It is just right for the price.
