Alamo City Paintball delrin bolt (two o-ring)
32* spring kit
Accurate, relatively quiet, inexpensive, good machine work
Small porting holes, shiny chrome back, garish blue front (optional anodizing color scheme)
I picked this barrel up for about $10 used as an improvement over my stock Rodeo barrel. Not that the stock barrel is bad, but it's hard to pass up a $10 barrel upgrade. The System-X barrel noticably improved accuracy and made the gun slightly quieter. I don't have anything but the stock barrel to compare it to right now, but I'm happy with it performance-wise.
The porting holes are a little small, but I've never chopped paint in my gun (or exploded a ball in the barrel) so it hasn't bothered me yet. I did notice it's a little large for Proball. I suspect that's because Proball is slightly less than .689, because I mic'd my barrel back at exactly .689. It still shot them well, though, with no curving and good accuracy. I also ran a case of crappy Wal-Mart paint (with a tighter bore match) through it and didn't have any issues with that either.
The only thing that really bugs me about it is the color scheme. Bright freaking blue with a chrome back doesn't really match my black Rodeo=/ It'll make a good barrel for my spare, though, once I get my J&J Ceramic barrel.
If you can get one for cheap and like the color scheme, go for it. That said, I'm picking up a J&J 14" Ceramic for $25 this week, so keep your eye out for good deals.
All in all, I give it a 7. It works, and it's cheap.
this barrel came stock on my freinds NME. we were screwing around and decided to use this over all our cocker barrels cause we didnt care. we acutally were surprised how accurate it is. it wasnt any more accurate than out otehr barrels, but my no means is this barrel bad at all. pretty nice stock barrel. after examination teh bore is pretty smooth. it doesnt look teh greatest, and looks akward when you look down it to aim, but thats IMO. it isnt teh best quality barrel, so if you have 60 bucks to blow i would go for another 2 peice. but its really is a good barrel, especailly for a stock one.
I guess this goes to show you, as long as teh barrel is decently made, and you have the right paint, any barrel will be a good performer. it isnt tehbest, but im shure if you mentioned thia barrel to ppl it would be shunned. like i said, there are better options, which is why its not popular. however for a stock barrel fro my freinds nme is pretty decent.
Main: System x Vengeance x, maddman rocket valve, ACI 91/3000, evo II
Backup: Black Dragun lcd (stock)
It's performed reasonably well considering what i'm comparing it to.
The port holes are SMALL...
The barrel is a good low priced barrel. It has an awesome honing job.Pretty accurate up to about the other teams 30. It comes in a variety of colors for the fashion conscious. Overall a pretty good barrel. I would recommend it if your in the market for a decent barrel for a low price.
Overall a good barrel. A little hard to clean but that's with any barrel with small port holes.

excelent fit and finish inside and out, with my marker set the way it is the porting is just perfect to get the most performance with the least noise. the bore size works with almost all paint ive tried. ummmmmm.....heh its cool lookin thats alwasy a plus :D...well what more can you say about a barrel?
its not gonna make you play better but it will make your marker shoot better.
This barrel does exactly what it is designed for it shoots strait and looks good...it doesnt have multibore inserts but is that realy a bad thing i dunno i dont think so?

This is a very good barrel... it has a nice smooth finish, it is made out of very durable material, unlike so many other two-pieces out there it has a good front to back transition, sufficient porting, and a pretty much universal bore size.
There is not many flaws to this barrel except that it doesn't have as much porting as it should probably have. The port holes are very small, making it hard to clean out paint. If you have the patience, this is no problem at all.
This is a very good barrel for the money; nice finish, smooth transition from the front to the back, and it is made out of durable material. Inexpensive, quality barrel.
