Hard to clean
shoots like crap in colder weather
Too many color choices ( sarcasm )
Overall this is my favorite barrel its rifled and it gets great distance almost comparable to the flatline, It's also very quiet . I have the 13" and its very very accurate if clean and the conditions are right however if a ball breaks in the barrel it doesn't matter how many shots you take it will not clean itself due to the rifling ( it actually causes more to break ) . plan on having a squeegee on hand to clean it out and you will have no problems. If you have the cash and want a very good all around barrel then this one is for you I paid around $100 for mine but it was worth it to me .
This has been a very good barrel , would recommend it to anyone.
I have a 21" Demon barrel, which only comes close to this barrel's accuracy, if you take off the attachment.
I have a hard to find Armson pump marker, with a 12oz CO2 tank
Extremely accurate, and pretty quiet.
It chops balls a very little bit more than average barrels.
This Armson steakth barrel is extremely accurrate. In 10 shots at a bird house from 25 yards away (aiming for the 2" in diameter hole) they all hit in a 4 inch radius, one of which I landed in the birdhouhose hole. I was using recreation levelpaint while testing. This barrel does seem to chop balls a little bit more than normal barrels.
I would seriosly recomend this barrel for players looking for really good accuracy.

Accuracy, Distance, Sound
Only that once you break a ball, you need to squeegee it.
I bought this barrel (16'') when i bought my gun. I have had many players I play with comment on the accuracy. I even had a little test where my friends(using Spyders and 98s with different barrels) shoot at a bottle from same distance as me. I hit just about ever time, while when using there guns I missed more. It has great distance also. This barrel makes shots much more quite too. The only problem is when you break a ball. I usually play in the woods with my friends, so squeegeeing is not a problem, because they are not gonna take a chance with running thinking im squeegeeing. But if you use good paint its all good.

RPS/PMI Evil or Draxxus/Diablo Inferno
Extrememy accurate, most accurate barrel I have ever shot or seen. Very quiet also.
This is a great barrel, I bought it for $55 from a local army surplus store(General Merchandise) a couple years ago. This barrel has always worked perfect for me, wether using my own paint or crappy field paint. I have shot well over 5 cases of various types of paint out of this barrel. I have only had 1 ball ever break in it, and that was when I was using a year old case of RPS/PMI Premiums that were very dimpled and brittle. Even then only 1 ball out of the whole case of 2000 broke.
I think this is easily the best barrel out there. It is by far the most accurate, but not quite as quiet as some others.

First off I'm not to picky on color so that doesn't count and the armson comes in silver and black so anything WILL match with it .This barrel is far to good to insult.
It is my favorite, even if I do speedball! This is so accurate that if used with a regulator is flawless, with ALL paint. The styling of this barrel is phenominal and the sound is another wonder. It is like that barrel is equiped with a 10" Silencer! The sound is like no sound. The only thing is that if you use the wrong paint it will pop once out of like 500.
Being a Sniper I use that much in 5 days.But anyways this barrel is the best.
If you have enough money look for the 2 piece Pro-Barrel but for my stick with the AS Barrel. I got it for 50 bux and its worth the buy.
I've used many different types of paint,and my barrel doesnt hurt the shot.
Weakness?I don't seem to know of any.
I've used this barrel for 3 months,and it's broken ONE ball. I've gone thru diablos,PMI's,severes,brass eagles,marbilizers,over 1200 balls and ONE break. Some people complain of it being loud. Trust me, it dims down the noise. They just might've never used anything else. I'm also reading of how hard it is to clean. Nope. Pull your squeegee through and you're ready to go. It's especially easy with the battle swab. The price is nice. I'm not completely sure on the rifling, but this barrel does the job right. I went out just this weekend and took out 9 games in a game concealed in the bushes. 5 were one shot kills from a good distance.
Sweet barrel if you know what you're doing. Good barrel from a good brand. Always fear the man with an Armson(unless you encounter him from behind)
a 16" Thunderpig.
Stealth quieter and far more accurate.
diab inferno t3, 16" barrel, 16oz CO2
blaze works swimmingly
accurate as nuts, pretty quiet, durable, nice.
tad heavy, but not cumbersome, lil expensive.
at about 45m shots landed within a few cm of each other consistently without a single break, velocity seemed to remain fairly constant right up until the end and all balls broke on target. Aimed shots landed right on target better than 90% of the time and the remaining 10% were within a 6 cm radius to the target. Rapid firing balls, no breaks, accuracy remained approximately the same allowing for my own movement and extra gun movement due to my pulling the trigger as fast as i could as opposed to taking clean aimed shots. At present I have only tried the blaze balls in it and Ill probably stick with them as they work very well indeed. I can hit the same 2" slat on a wooden fence every single time in nearly exactly the same place aimed, rapid firing ill hit the same slat most of the time, ocassionally hitting an adjacent slat. My velocity is turned up quite a bit to compensate for the loss of range due to rifling and it works perfectly, insanely accurate, fairly quiet, good range with slight velocity increase, well constructed and at a mid range price.
I play sniper positions almost exclusively, i was interested in a quiet barrel with decent range and ridiculous accuracy, and thats pretty much what i got here, well worth it. Its fairly quiet on its own but im considering a silencer mod, jes for fun...
10 out of 10

J&J Ceramic if you are low on money get the JandJ but if you got the money the ARMSON is the barrel to get for a sniper
Pro Carbine Remote line 20 oz tank CAR stock and ARMSON STEALTH 16"
I like marbs but any balls will work i have been using PMI PREMIUMS
SUPER QUIET,SHOOTS FAR,very accurate,looks awesome
First time i shot it i though i didnt shoot air cause it was so quiet but the ball hit my target bout 20 yards away dead on it is accurate up to 100 yards easily on my Pro Carbine but i havent shot it on any other gun my friend is getting one for his M98 cause he likes it so much i can shoot up to 200 yards accurate but i have been playin a long time so the price is steep but i am a rich b!tch lol so it dont matter if you got 60$ you can get it's harder to find for the Pro Carbine cause barrels are hard to find for it any ways if you want the best deal email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and i will send you a sight just tell me wut gun and how lond of a barrel you want if you are low on money get a JandJ if you want a quiet barrel but the ARMSON beats them all BUY THIS GUN
GET THIS GUN CAUSE IT IS FLAT OUT THE BEST BARELL I HAVE EVER SHOT AND NEVER BUY A DYE BARREL THEY ARE OVER PRICED AND SUCK!!!!!!
This is a pretty good barrel. It's VERY VERY VERY VERY silent. It's rifled and all, and it's pretty nice. I got it at $80, and I think it was an okay buy.
Oh god, this is bad. First of all, the accuracy sucks big willys. I use a tippmann 98 and team colors paint. the accuracy is good at about up to 20 yards for me. yes, it's better than the stock barrel, but to me there are better buys. Also, the bore size is very small. Those of you that shoot diablo hellfire or team colors, this is not the barrel for you. the range sucks. If you want to snipe someone out from close range, this is the barrel for you. but how many people do that?
It's an okay barrel, the quietist one I've heard. I'm not too impressed with the range, the accuracy is about average. If I were you, I would buy a smartparts all american or dye aluminum. but hey, if you've got your heart set on it....CHANGE YOUR MIND!!! Just kidding, it's not that great, but it's not that bad.
*Shoots straight and far
*Looks sweet(Matter of a person tastes and differrences
*Rifling is cool
*Break a ball you have to clean it very very good in order for it to shoot accurately again.
*It's extremely picky on the paint
I bought a 13" barrel for my 98 custom. I liked it for it's accuracy but once a ball break happened it shoot very bad. I was using PMI paint which is the only one I love shooting and buying. The barrel is accurate I'll tell you that but for the price it is being sold at I felt I was getting my money's worth. I mean a 80 dollar barrel shoots crappy than a 50 dollar barrel you feel ripped off well I'm selling mine for 50 dollars on ebay so it won't matter.
