This is one of the quietest barrels I have ever seen or used. The barrel makes almost no noise, the only noise that I or any other player can hear is the sound of the bolt. The barrel is also one of the lighest barrels out there (aluminum).
Although this is a very quiet barrel I was not very pleased with it's accuracy. The barrel has a good range but it seems to have an unpredictable arc at a specific distance (about 90') with each shot. If it did not have this arc it would have an excellent range (not to mention accuracy), the total range could be up to 120' but it arcs at about 90' so it's range and accuracy is not good. It also sacratches easily.
The barrel is a good barrel and most likely better than most stock barrels. The price is good as well. My personal recommendation would be to save money and try out as many barrels as possible, then buy one that suits "you" well and is in "your" price range.
Where to start.... It's cheap, porting reduces muzzle volume considerably, rifling defintely reduces spin
and drop off. Also, it must be one of the lightest 14" barrels out there. Porting is also good in the fact
that it is small enough to stop water getting in(During rain play) but gas can exit happily...
It's the same for all barrels, the bigger they get, the more gas they use, after adding the winforce, I
to buy a spring kit to get the velocity back up in the late 280's on my Spyder. Also, the muzzle break
makes finding a tight fitting barrel plug quite hard.
I'd thoroughly recomend this barrel for someone who wants to keep their Spyder or clone as light as
possible, it won't break your bank, so if you don't like it, flick it off to another Spyder user for US$20-30!
wont go far with some paint
some balls move when the bals come out
i like this barrle, its better then the stock. this barrle goes far and accurate, i would recomand this barrle for any one who has a spyder, tippman, brasseagle or auto cocker. iv had this barrle for 3 moths and every time i go i live how it shoots. some balls will move around when they come out, so buy paint that fights your bor size. i like how it shoots but i dont really like the diesigen
good for spyders
if u have the stock barrle i say get this barrle
ive used a razzor barrel (on my piranha/my dads rebel)....and the 2 piece kind. i used some others but i didnt get the name i just shot it from someone else marker.
an upgraded piranha g2 vtl, a 2002 rebel, and a tippmann model 98 custom........
JT all the way. i love that paint...always worked for me no matter what barrel no matter what marker. its cheap too. just perfect for me.
-comes in pretty long lengths (i got a 16 inch but i wouldnt get any higher than that or it chops like hell)
-better range...the barrel that the tippmanns come with is like 4 inches and its surprisingly good for how long it is but i wouldnt use it.
-fits on a variety of markers
-comes in different colors
-i got it for my tippmann for rec to be a sniper and i heard it was real quiet but i was kinda disappointed...i shot it on low c02 and it was VERY quiet but when i used a full one it was just as loud or almost just as loud as before....oh well....at least it has good range and its acurate....
-balls dont chop in it...i just got it and i havent even shot a full hopper through it but so far it hasent chopped any.
get it....fairly cheap i got mine for $55 and acurate. can compete with boomsticks...crap....i think i need 100 words and i dont know what to say...............umm................this is proof you dont need a boomy to compete....ok...well......get a pennywise cd...i like punk rock...cant stand rap and R&B....or pop....all i like is punk and hard rock...
This barrel is extremely light and quiet. Also it is very accurate, and cheap I got mine for about $45.
It rairly breaks paint, but if it does its a pain to clean out of the ports. It's is also accuracy is not quite as good as some barrles I've seen.
I used a 16" and it was a little to long for me. It shot RPS marrbalizer very well, and it did fairly well with crappy brass eagle paint. I used it on a spyder and it is deffinetly one of the most quiet barrels around. It is defintly worth the price, but if you have money to spend then there are better barrels out there.
Not accurate after 40-50 feet. Paintball breaks are horrible especially if you have a 16" barrel ... spiral porting makes shooting softer but not worth it if your paint breaks at the muzzle and splatters on the spiral holes...unless you have a good squeegee to get rid of it. There's no need for anything longer than 14" barrel... get rid of this barrel and go for something else from 32 degrees or Dye... try not to go for those $60 and above barrels.. there are barrels below that price that equate the performance of those high price ones.. if you're going to spend beyond $75 for a model 98/custom 98 might as well get a flatline.
It's an alright barrel... but there are better ones at this price range.
