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.

Any paint thats top of the line really, nothing from walmart of course.
Looks, No inserts, 2 piece, weight, made by smartparts, similar to freak
This barrel came with my shocker, and i decided to leave it on, cause i like it, it weighs like nothing, where freaks have some weight. It is made by smartparts, and it looks real cool, i like this barrel alot and will keep it in my shocker for a while.

I got this barrel from my local shop for $70 in Dust Red to match my cocker. I've always liked the SP All-American and this barrel doesn't dissapoint. It is highly accurate, strangely it is more accurate if you fire in strings than single shots. I really can't figure out exactly why that is, but it might be the spiral porting (the Tear Drop does the same thing). On my cocker the range increased after i added this barrel as well. The workmanship on the barrel itself is a little lacking, but its mostly nit-picky stuff. Take for instance on the threads you can see where the machine held onto the barrel because theres two little indentations on it. Also, when I first opened it there was a burr on the inside of the front section, had to run a straight shot through it to get it off. Again, these are nit-picky things, but something to consider.
I recommend this barrel for somebody looking for a true two-piece but doesn't want to spend the cash on a Freak, Pipe, or Boomie. I've shot both a boomie and this AA on my cocker and must say that the AA is a tad bit better in my opinion. The Boomie is really picky about the paint you shoot, while the AA isn't. Plus they're virtually equal in terms of performance. So, i'd go with the AA any day of the week.
Full SS Freak Kit = more breaks becase of "insert stepping" on some backs, louder, not as accurate with good paint/bore match as AA with good paint/bore match

This is actually a review for the 1 peice All American that I used on my Spyder soem years ago. However I remember this barrel VERY VERY well as it was my favourite barrel of all time, even over my SS freak.
Accuracy : It is accurate to a long range, but has a slight curve to the right. They move over about 3 inches at it's longest range consistently. Which I account for the spiral porting putting a slight spin on every ball. I liked that they didn't go in a shot gun pattern.
Range : I can't complain here. With good round balls it can fire as far as any other barrel I used that doesn't backspin the ball. Keeping in mind the balls fall consistent at range.
Sound : Very Very quiet. That was my favourite thing about it. You could only rally hear the gun and it was HP not LP. If I used this barrel on a cocker you would only hear the gun cycling. My friend has a shocker (old school box one) with AA and it's scary when e fires beside you with his gun all you hear is "psst" "psst" "psst" as balls fly by you.
Quality : I don't find the same level of quality these days from Smart Parts. I sold the barrel as a $100 up as it still look BRAND NEW inside. The ano is amazingly strong and smooth. Outside however the barrel isn't really a rich black. It looks like a slightly purpleish black like it has a chemical on it or something so don't try to match it with a blacked out gun if your picky.
Other : The ported end is pretty thin so it's actually a back heavy barrel making snap shooting as easy as if it was a normal 10-12" barrel. If you plug the end of the barrel and dry fire the ports clean after a squeegee it takes care of the cleaning aspect.
In all ways this barrel is better than my Freak minus the bores. It is more solid (duh), more accurate (good paint/bore), and has a better build quality.
My friend bought this barrel and when he quit he let me use it for awhile before he sold it. Unfortunately i had to test it on a spyder but if it had angel threads i would have been alot happier. This barrel makes a ton of improvement. I before was using the stock barrel and i can say it was a bad length , ugly , loud and innacurate. This barrel fixed things right up. It improved acuracy and noise and looks great on your gun. I got no barrel breaks whatsoever. It was only 65 dollars and was worth it but now you can find them for way less.
Buy this barrel if you want your gun to perform better.

I haven't found any yet....
Well i have only tested this barrel twice so i will update this if i have any poor results and whatnot.
THe first time I attempted to use the barrel the ball dtents on my 98 had fell out so i was shooting 3 or 4 balls at a time and balls were chopping like crazy so I was pissed off. i thought the barrel was f ucked up. I bought new detents and played in the cold weather today. THis barrrel is amazing!!!!! It shoots ball on top of ball, no lie. It is deadly accurate. I haven't used any other aftermarket barrels so i can't compare its accuracy but remember it is damn accurate. This barrrel is also much more quiet than the stock. Not to the point that you can't here where you are but it is a significant change in volume. THis barrel looks hott. I know you wouldn't buy one for looks but this is sexy. I have also herad the barrel increases efficincy but idk. Dude just buy it , its worth the money!
Buy it its good. Accurate, durable, quiet and just a great all around barrel

A tad expensive
Threads wear because of aluminum
First off, this is a GREAT barrel. It keeps the ball flying straight almost all the time(wind sucks). It also keeps quite for my gun, even though im using an imagine.
It works great with many types of paint, you just have to keep it close enough, and it will work for you. It may not have inserts like some, but it doesnt need them in my opinion.
When i first took this barrel out for a test, I was using CO2 on my Imagine, so it wasnt really all that good at first, but once i hooked up HPA, it worked like a charm. Even when you're really flinging paint at someone quikly, it keeps up in accuracy. NO SPINNING OF INTO EVERY OTHER DIRECTION BUT YOUR OPPONENT!
Though this may be an expensive barrel, IM not knocking it for that at all, (mainly because I was shipped it by mistake instead of a teardrop, so I paid 35 bucks for it (= )
Overall this is an awesome barrel, I reccomend it!
okay price wouldnt be a thing i would look at , the price is reasonable becuz its a high end barrel. the milling on this barrel is okay it doesnt scratch to easily but if you hit it on a rock or something it will (DUH). Quiet i dont think i can really make my self clear the olny thing i hear when i shoot this is my bolt recocking and the paintball hitting a tree 50 feet away this thing is so quiet. Okay accuracy on this thing is better than my stock definatly better, its will go perfectly straight up to id say 80 feet (i mean straight horizontaly) after that it will start dropping but as for directional wise straight as hell.(i was TESTING THIS OUTSIDE WITH WIND SO ILL UPDATE THIS WHEN I GO INDOORS PAINTBALLING). 2 PIECE really important cause lets say i would wanna better barrel or different one i could just buy a freak or freak Jr. from smart parts and screw it on the back of the front and you have a new barrel.
this is a great buy better than that f-ing boomstick or ultralite for like 160 (canadian). this barrel is a steal you could go with a progressive or teardrop but thi is quieter(My bro has a teardrop)this barrel is about 100 bucks(canadian) and its worth it

14 in Smart Parts All American
Evolution2 loader with y board
68 CI 3000 PSI Nitro duck fiber wrapped HPA Tank
Not to bad on the wallet
Doesnt shoot very well through breaks
I got this barrel cheap for 60 bucks and I love it. I was shooting horrible paint (RPS Rampage... the purple balls) and the barrel still managed to put them nicely on target... It makes my wrath look even more intimidating... and its very nicely made. I have no real complaints about this product.
Empire Twister, Stiffi, J&J Ceramic, and the spyder stock
x-tra and everything is stock
basically any. except for brass eagle but thats a given
Easy to clean
Not too expensive
Paint chips off after a while.
Hard to get paint out of the porting.
The all american is a very high quality barrel. It took a few shots for it to really start getting accurate. but after a little while, i noticed that the grouping was much better than what it had been with the stock. It cleans itself out very easily. Although the paint chips, it's not noticeable unless you are examining it.
If you've got the money to buy it, it is an incredible investment. I bought it for about 65 dollars and it was well worth it. I bought it a while ago and never regretted it.

A small gap forms on some barrels hasnt happend to me yet
I bought this barrel for $67 ish this barrel is Well worth the $$$ Great Accuracy Conpared to other barrels that i have used. I ran a back yard test AA Vs Stock not the best type of test, but results dont lie the grouping at about 50ft was 8inches from center of the first shell to the Farthest shell. this barrel can put balls on top of balls At a good range, the stock barrel well not even close.
If you are looking for a new barrel you will not be Sad with this as your choice Great Barrel 10/10
