JT Excellerator 5.0
JT 1-piece stock barrel
JT Maxim or Maxim 2
The barrel is very accurate for it's length(8.5")
This is an overall good barrel for the speedball course. I do not recommend it for long paintball games because it breaks the occasional paintball if you aren't careful. I had the velocity on my JT 5.0 set at 285 and it only broke a couple. It's actually very good for a stock barrel but I still had to buy a longer one.
I'd have to say save your money. You'd be better off going with a Spyder Tru-Flight Barrel or something a little longer like 14".
lapco for tipp 98- 4 times better than this jt
stock barrel- sad thing is, its almost just as good as jt barrel
marker: VL revelation
hopper: VL revvy reinforced with pvc pipe, tie downs, gorrilla glue, and duct tape(dead serious!)
barrels: stock, JT, and J&J
air: 9oz tanks
balls: whatevers on sale
unless you get the most expensive balls out there it's not gonna matter
$50! Aluminum, long, scratches, chops! Is it at least accurate and quiet? NO!
Where do i start. i'm not sure what you newbs see in this barrel, but you're just lying to yourself. it wasn't much more accurate than my stock barrel, which i guess is already half decently accurate but its 50 bucks! I got this at fleet farm out of desperate need of a new barrel. Tells you what kind of hick town i live in! i shot 2200 rnds through it before i gave up. i played two games with it and was surprised when my 2 man team won, except the other guy ran out of air. I don't think that should count. Even though i got one guy out, it was because he was using my other revelation with the stock barrel :) (having new-founded confidence in having a "new" barrel helped too, though, it wasn't actually the barrel itself, sorry). I would have kept it if it wouldn't have gotten a huge scrape down the INSIDE of the barrel! i shot nothing through it but Core paintballs! wtf! Not like this is a big deal but the barrel didn't fit and it would unscrew after a hopperful or two. I also noticed my a lot more balls were being chopped too! It would be better if this barrel came down to 20 bucks.
Save yourself the $$$. It doesn't self clean, its not accurate and its way longer than it has to be. i'm being generous by giving this a 6/10. think about it. it doesn't deserve above average!
6 out of 10
