I have used dye ultralie which is really good.I have also used all american barrel which is good to.
proto matrix blck/red with a musashi board,45/45 crossfire low,red halo with rip drive,all american barrel (also have the 4piece empire)
I recommend just by high quality paint when ever u use a barrel especially for the empire.
I liked that I never got barrel breaks or nothing on it.
I kinda didnt like the barrel case kinda big.Even though nothing do with barrel
Overall its a good kit.No problems with it and i think its a really great price for a whole kit its only 100.This is my only kit and i use it when ever i need to use it .I ran out of things to say cuz there is nothing bad with this kit.
good barrel to bore matchability and extremely accurate.
Only 3 backs but it's good for the price.
I just got this barrel the other day and I put on the .689 back for PMI Premiums that I used a freak .689 insert for in the tourney and the Empire was tons more accurate. I shot 140 and didn't have a single break. It's more accurate than the freak for Premiums and has a good price. $85 for mine.
This barrel is good for anybody who wants to get started with kits and I don't think I'll buy another kit for a very long time. I'd recomend it to anyone who wants more verstility and better paint to bore matchup.
Piranha Eforce EXT PRO 2K3
Empire 4 Peice
Crossfire Nitro tank
pmi paintballs work good, anykind of pro level paint like midnights and up
accurate, quite, very light, what more can you want?
once you bust its crap but all barrels are so oh well
This barrel is good, you should buy this gun, the only reason i have problems with it is my bolt chops paintballs pretty bad and im too fast for my hopper, oh and the bore sizes come on the backs so there is no mix up of the size. this barrel is fairly easy to clean other than the holes but you can just blow the paint out of them and them squeege it out.
a good barrel, light accurate quite, bob long team plays with them so pros like it too
Freak, Warpig, CC Stock Class Barrels, Flatline, CP barrel 14inch
BKO, with CP barrel and Halo B with rip drive
A-5 Hell Cat with Empire 3 peice set
Anything cheap, the empire would fit common paint
Long range, accurate, fits many types of paint
If the backs are not in you chop like mad.
I just got this from a friend and i switched from a warpig rifled barrel to the empire barrel. and MAN is there a difference the accuracy is FAR superior and without the rifling from the warpig i can shoot about twice as far. Other then that, if your looking for a barrel that can size paint, go with this one. The freak is spendy and personaly i don't think it looks as goods as the empire. but you will sure find that the 3 backs should fit almost any type of paint.
3 is all you need, don't go for any HUGE set that cost 200.00 dollars, this set works just fine by itself. Its Great, and looks good, long distance.
Dark Timmy, A-bomb Timmy, Evil pimp all with tons of ups
Any winter shelled paint because breaks are a accuracy killers.
A lot- read full review.
The diameter is often wrong. Sometimes I size a paintball in a ball sizer, then use the same size Empire barrel and it chops paint. Then I put a EVIL kit on with the same size barrel and it works perfectly. I guess you get what you pay for.
This barrel looks really cool, maybe the best looking barrel on the market right now. Also this barrel is one of the quite ones.
If you break even one paintball, your accuracy goes out the window and never comes back. Even worse is the fact that, if you break one ball at least three more will break before you stop to clean it.
It is soft and barrels could get damaged. Oddly enough it looks like a purse.
This part I like. They come in so many sizes they are quite easy to clean. Best part of the whole kit.
This is the worst part of the kit. The sizes are wrong and the threading is cheap. Just a bad product.
Spend some money and get a real barrel kit.

MI Drop and on/off
But right now im saving for an angel 4 with rasta paint job
I use el tigre, evil, and sometimes all star but all will work because its a kit
The different sized bores go great wit RPS paint
Isn't self cleaning and after a break your screwed
I've been playing now for about a year and i know a lot about paintball. This kit is awesome if you take good care of it but its one fault is that after a break you get pretty muched screwed on the field if you dont bring out a squegee. Right now im about half way to an angel 4 with rasta paint job, an evil pipe kit, halo b, 68/4500 angel air tank, and a few other good accessories---i think that the empire kit is good for mid level guns like the BKO and Impulse and stuff like that, but for angels, high end cockers, shockers, and other high end markers, you need sumthin better. Im getting an evil pipe kit and my cousins ultralite
Get it if you want a decent barrel kit and have a mid level gun like BKO or Impulse---kits like this are great for tournies and go awesome wit RPS paint
Dye aultra light,Freak stainless steal and stock 04 cocker bearrel
Red 04 Autococker wit,Eclipse eblade 2.palmers reg,Phat drop,Phat ACP,Nexe Ram,Eclipse 3 way,Shock Tech bolt,and a Freak stain less barrel kit
Arreckute how ever u spell it?
The barrel brakes alot
This barrel is great and accrioute but it brakes way to much!!!!!!!!! and i mean like evry game i would have to get a squegge out and i kept geting bunkerd because of that so i traded some one for a \dye ultra light and the last time i played wit that kid (Ross) he said it shoots like a african boy shooting darts in the surfie but he has a naughtey dogs timmy so mabey it is the gun?(dought it)
I would defentley recamend this barrel but i think i used to small of a size? mabey?
Smart Parts Full Freak kit
Smart Parts Progressive
Blue tape worm
45/4500 crossfire HPA tank
14" full freak kit (AAfront stainless back and 8 insterts)
twister feed neck
able to change bore sizes
still not as accurate as the freak
and seperate backs instead of inserts stink.
ive used this barrel and i found the full freak to be alot better. the accuracy of this barrel is good and its pretty quiet but it still doens't beat the freak kit. to me the inserts of the freak are easier then having five stainless steel backs plus when you you get a new gun you have to get a whole new kit with the freak you need to get just one new back and you can keep you whole kit.
this barrel is accurate and quiet but still not as good as the freak. the idea with the stainless steel backs is good but i guess when they designed this barrel they didn't think that when you get a new gun you also need to get a whole new kit which can cost lots of money.

doesnt clean itself out after a break(what does besides ceramic?)
accurate.quiet.looks.distance. I would buy this product, although i am looking into the j@j ceramic, and the freak kits which i feel are both good buys. This barrel has always played good for me, there is no real weakness.I would buy this product, although i am looking into the j@j ceramic, and the freak kits which i feel are both good buys.

ebladed 2k3 vert feed, superfly bolt, kapp cocking rod, worr sto ram, black magic hammer, air america vigilante reg, full freak
any that fit it
Terrible quality control
I got excited to have my first barrel kit. Low and behold the first time i tried it, it broke balls terribly. I thought it was just the paint so i played at another field with fresh paint and it still broke pretty bad. I looked at it closely and saw that the tip was offline terribly. If you get this kit, I highly recommend you carry a battle swab with you at all times, you will definitely need it.
I recommend that you get a freak kit, better quality, more bore sizes. My experience with this kit was terrible.
