Any paintballs will work
Strengths: Great accuracy, extremely light weight
Weaknesses: There are no rubber o-rings on the barrel backs
Review: Ok, just bought this as an upgrade for my Ion. Testing it out, it seems more accurate than the stock ION barrel (which isn't that bad anyways). It is extremely light and has a great shiny black finish to it. My only grip (and it's a fairly big one) is that there are no rubber o-rings on the barrel backs. This causes them to unscrew from my marker fairly consistently during a game and I always have to be aware of this problem and keep an eye on the barrel just to make sure it's not coming loose. There is even a little groove for the o-ring on the barrel back which leads me to believe that maybe they forgot to put them on mine. Either way it's a concern, also since there isn't a rubber o-ring there I'm wondering if there is some air leakage when I shoot. Meh, either way, I'm putting rubber o-rings on them and that should take care of the problem.
Conclusion: 8/10 because I don't like to constantely be worried about my barrel coming unscrewed

Review: thsi barrel kit is awsome. I love it, but i wish it was a little cheaper. now that you can get a freak for $150 in some places, i kinda wish i got that, but i am still satisfied with the empire. It is a little loud, but i dont really care about that, and neither should you.
Conclusion: It gets an 8 because it is a great kit, but i would get a freak for around the same price.

Review: I got my empire about a month ago and i love it. It comes with a really nice case which is very compact and nice looking. The barrel is very accurate when you match your paint to it.And i like the way it looks on my timmy.A problem was that one of my backs(.689) did not fit in one of my fronts. This was fixed with a simple call to empire who sent me a brand new back.Other than that problem i love the kit.
Conclusion: If you have the money i would buy this kit.

Strengths: Increase accuracy a lot, looks good, versatility.
Weaknesses: None
Review: I bought this kit used on eBay, it came with 5 backs and the 14" front. This barrel is really good. Take your time to select the best back for your paint and you will be very accurate.

I upgraded to this from my stock Xtra barrel, I was really surprised by how much it improved my accuracy. I chopped some paintballs on rare occasion but I'm pretty sure it was not because of the barrel.

I didn't notice the my gun was really quieter with this barrel but I don't really care about the noise level.

The inside of the barrel is really smooth and the exterior looks really good, great manufacturing quality.

The barrel doesn't get loose even after long hours of play.
Conclusion: I recommend this product, it's a little expensive when bought new but you get what you pay for.

Thumbs up on this one!
