The Python compression system is one of a kind system turning any barrel into a high performance compression barrel. Simply screw the high quality precision engineered connector into your marker and screw the barrel of your choice into the connector for a paintball compression zone to put your balls on target.
The compression system is made in the USA from high quality aircraft grade aluminum and engraved with the Python logo. Each sleeve is anodized a different color and are engraved with their bore size.
-4 Compression sleves in size: .679 .682 .685 .688
-1 Body for either: Angel, Autococker, Impulse, Spyder, Shocker, Tippmann A-5, 98
-1 compact sturdy case
The Python Paintball Compression Barrel System is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
I orginally only used the old Empire Barrel System, but its main weakness was that its lowest ball size was a .681 and when your shooting very small bored paint, and a pneumatic autococker, the balls roll literally right out the barrel. All the ball detent does is prevent double feeding, not hold ball as it is moved into its own chamber so if your paint doesn't fit right, it rolles right out.
It is the ONLY ball sizer kit with a .679 sleeve. Inexpensive too.
Cleaning out can be challenging sometimes.
I have used it in the Tactical Sniper Challenge at Tactical Paintball in Harrwood Texas and got first place on the target range section using this kit.
It lets you keep your original barrels, its inexpensive, and it has sizes that no other company offers.
Highly recogmend this system! It works great and the customer service is amiazing!
If you play scenario games you know that the paint you have to use is going to change from place to place, so getting a kit like this will help ensure you get the most out of the game!
Hit 'em where it hurts!
Buy this over a freak any day! You can slowly increase your barrel size with this kit and get some amaizing shots from it. The price is unbeatable and its sizes are intentionally different than those of most kit systems. BUY ONE!!
Keeps me from having to purchase a freak kit from Smart Parts.
The Cocker threaded Python body doesn't magically transform to fit my twistlock automag.
I did not purchase the full kit as nearly all the balls I've come across lately are .685-.686. I saved a little money and only bought the cocker threaded body and .685 insert. It completely stopped the roll outs.
Although I did not perform a accuracy test I did notice a slight increase in overall accuracy. I've only used it one day so far. It was 35 degrees, light snow. I was using Polar Ice and my '99 Autococker. No chops or barrel breaks with about 1500 rounds shot. Accuracy was spot on using the Python attached to an Evil Driver .689 barrel. I did notice about a 10 fps increase when using the Python kit and Evil Driver compared to just the Evil Driver. This was documented on a hand held chronograph.
Others playing that day were using Tippmanns', Automags, and a BKO. Like always, the cold weather was playing havoc, and barrel breaks were a problem for everyone, except me. That is until I pulled out my Automag for a few games, without a Python kit. Then I had them too.
All shooting was done using HPA.
Since Python is now making the Automag twist lock kit, I do plan on contacting them to see if I can purchase just the Automag body. The nice thing about their Automag body is that it is actually threaded for Autococker barrels, which I have plenty of.

I purchased the Python Kit at EMR's Castle Conquest, and have been incredibly impressed with the product thus far. Upon geitting the Barrel Kit back to Canada I put it though it's paces with over 2000 paintballs in various bore sizes and quality, including Marbs, Nelspat, Hurricane, Worr Paint etc. The Barrel kit performed flawlessly.
A great kit, for alot less money, you will not be disappointed. The staff are also very approachable.

Fills in the gap between barrel kits and stock barrels .
I have been wanting to put an apex on a ss25 pump for quite some time but couldn't get the apex to clear the pump handle so I thought it wouldn't happen or would be expensive ,my teammates and I found this on the net and ordered 2 backs ,and it worked ! The staff was top notch, when I explained the proposed aplication they wanted to know the results.As a testament to the quality of these backs both lined up perfect with the inserts in them. They come in a hard case and are easy to take care of /hard to lose.In these days of small bore paint you need a kit ,this turns your stock barrel into a high preformer. I also got the new spider back for an m3(this back is the smallest od of all the backs) this is for my new 06 ghost once again the staff wanted to know how it worked.It fit through the pump handle no problem and is mint.The staff also told me they do custom coverstions ie a-5 to cocker,ion to autococker ect.I am going to send in my carter snub and shock barrel to see what they can do (no more nail polish).
I recommend this kit to players all the time when asked about barrel kits, you are getting a good deal for 60.00$$ I think other barrel kit companies are making good products that are over priced this kit bridges the gap and doesn't sacrifice quality for price !!!
I have not used any other compression sysytems as they are over the wallet range for me
flatline, J&J 14" with m4 hand guard
VL 12V hopper
Allow air efficiency improvement to the a5, added some distance with the J&J
Need a couple of more bore sizes.
I love this system as it is in the budget range compared to the hammerhead and the other systems out there. Picked it up at the TWC in 06 and have played with it 2 or 3 times and love the system. On the a5 if i use the J&J 14" it helps with the distance and air efficiency of the marker.
If you are looking for something with in the reasonable price range or something easier on the wallet then yo have found it.
I think they need to add a couple more bore sleeve sizes to allow for some of the more basic paints we as scenario players use.
Need to find a way to get it on the flatline...he he
