Not too many ports
Very smooth bore
Not as good as the more expensive barrels?
This is definitely the best barrel for the price range. It is a little cheaper than the teardrop at many stores, and performs pretty much the same, only it has less ports, which leads to greater efficiency. It is very smooth on the inside and is not paint picky at all. I've shot several barrels and went back to this one because of the price. It is much less expensive than most barrels, but it performs almost as well.
-a little less noisy
-a little more precise (Because of the 0.02 micron less)
-Not a big improvement over a stock barrel
-Unscrew itself while playing !! <- Very bad
-Gloss (Paint reflect too much the light), I prefer Dusted
-If paint break, your Doom!
I don't recommand this Barrel.
It's only a small improvement over a stock barrel.
Yes it's going to be a Sharper and less noisy, but by a small margin.
No matter what others might think of this review, there is always some people who are more difficult about a product. I compared this barrel agains the best. If you broke your barrel and don't have much money to spend, then this might be a good solution, otherwise, NO!

Spyder electra dx
ST superfly bolt
16" CP barrel
Any paintballs work in this barrel unless the bore size is way off. I usually just shoot cheap zap paint from wal mart and i rarely break balls.
-Shoots cheap paint
Nothing, Sure the all american is better but it was 2 times more expensive.
I really like this barrel. It shoots very straight and is so accurate. Cheap or good paint doesn't break in it and it looks sweet. I paid only $40 can and it was worth it. I need to write some more things so i will use up the 50 word minimum.
I would definatley recommend this amazing barrel to anyone. It is very accurate, rarely breaks and for the price, what a deal. Buy this barrel.Heres an overall score for the different qualities.
Spyder Pilot and Compact Stock Barrels
PMI Razor (Note: that is different from the PMI Razzor barrel)
Spyder Pilot ACS
Empire Reloader Hopper
I used diablo paint and it worked extremely well
Shoots even cheap, wet paint!!!
Many colors and finishes
Awesome all-around barrel
Scratched a little easily.
Logo up-side down (maybe gun and not barrel though)
Everyone seemed to be recommending this barrel, and now I know why! I have been 100% satisfied with this barrel. Some of the things I noticed:
It shoots very strait, in a very tight grouping, the paint goes where you want it to.
It is amazingly consistant, I have not yet had one paintball curve off in an unexpected direction. If you want to fire in between two very tight bunkers, you will be able to do it! I know exactly how the ball will drop, so I can just drop balls over bunkers and get easy kills.
It is not noticeably loud or quiet.
PERFECT mirror finish on the inside.
14", dust finish, nickel color, barrel looks extremely good on my gun. I have gotten many comments on how awesome this barrel looks.
Quick barrel comparison:
It was towards the end of the paintball day... I was starting on my last 3 or 4 games...
Unfortunately, I had cheaped out and bought some "shrapnel" paint. They call it "Shrapnel" for a reason. The paint was so brittle, when I dove behind a bunker, some balls broke in EACH of my pods, covering all the paintballs with some paint. Balls had also chopped in my gun (that is WITH the ACS bolt and the Empire Reloader hopper.) Since it was close to the end of the day, I just kept using them and they still shot pretty good, not perfect, but good. Then, I ran out of CO2! Since it was close to the end, I wasn't going to fill up my tank again, I was just going to quit.
A weekly regular their had used up all his paint and offered to let me use his gun, he had unlimited nitro. HIS setup: DM4, Dye Ultralite, Nitrogen... how could I refuse? Since he was out of paint, I just used my paint-covered paintballs.
I could not hit a barrel 20 ft away with 200 paintballs!!!!! In this particular case, the pilot/cp 1 piece was shooting much better than DM4/ultralite. (no one get offended)
In my opinion, the CP 1 piece shoots almost/as/better than the ultralite/freak/all american! (Just my opinion!)
Definately a good buy for anyone! From back-yard woodsball to professional airball/speedball.
Buy this barrel! I STRONGLY reccomend it!

I LOVE this barrel. Mine is a 14" chrome so it looks really sharp on my gun. Although there were a few things I forgot to consider before my purchase.
1)Its chrome. I was thinking of looks and performance when I bought this barrel. I failed to realize that scrathes and little dings show up VERY WELL on chrome.
2)Stupid friends. lol not that this matters but.... i was playing scenario and my friend was watching and he was bored. SOOooo, he got the bright idea of putting rocks and dust and sand in my barrel case and then emptying it, failing to realize that MY BARREL GOES IN THERE! So next time I took my barrel out there were these nice little scratches in the bore. Thankfully it didn't throw off my accuracy more then a cm. But i still kicked my friends A$$!

Medium bore (.689)
May have too much porting for an LP setup (not too big of a deal).
This is a great barrel. I have been using it for 3 years now, and it has never failed me. I have the 14" version. It is the perfect size for both speedball and woodsball. The finish in the barrel is still perfect, no blemishes, and still has that mirror shine and glass smoothness. It makes for a highly accurate gun, as it is long and has a lot of porting (which also makes it quiet).
It is not as expensive as some other barrels, but it is a performer.
It WILL NOT let you down.
I highly recommend this barrel for any gun.
This barrel rocks! I suggest a 14" as it is not too long, but is long enough to provide great accuracy.

Black 04 cocker
48 3000 centerflag tank
red (i also have black shells for it) 12 volt revi
Red spyder esprit
progressive smart parts barrel
20 oz tank
i use the same hopper for both
im not sure i only used it once but for an autococker make sure to get bigger bores so they dont roll down the barrel
Nothing at all
I bought this barrel because i didnt want a stock for my new cocker and i was happy with it nothing is wrong with its easy to clean i seriously cannot find flaw other than its not a 2 piece it shoots straight and the shape isnt bad it could be cooler but hey its better than stock the accuracy is dead on with draxxus so thats another plus.
I was in the market for a new barrel for my A-5. I looked at many reviews on here and other forums to see what people thought about certain barrels. I came to the conclusion that the tear drop, CP 1piece, and the J&J ceramic were decent barrels ranging from $35-$50. I went to the local proshop and they had a sale on the CP 1 piece fo $30. I questioned the man at the proshop as to what barrel would be better out of the 3 and he said he liked the CP 1 piece more over the tear drop. They did not carry the J&J ceramic. He also stated the tear drop was a nice barrel however, it is harder to clean than the CP but are equivalent barrels for the most part. Since they were having a sale I purchased the 12" CP 1 piece over the tear drop. Being very eager to see what my new purchase would do I tested it out. I first shot at a big oak tree about 100 feet away with the stock barrel. Out of 10 shots I was able to hit the tree about 3 times with the spread about 10"-20" apart. The rest of the shots curved to both sides of the tree. I then screwed in the 12" CP 1 piece and fired 10 more shots. I hit the tree about 7 times with in the same 10"-20" spread. Nice improvement over the stock. I went ahead and put about 20 balls in the hopper and shot them. I was able to still hit the tree about 7 times but was able to narrow down that spread some. Now, I know that there are more expensive barrels out there like the boomstick but saving $100 seemed more feasible.
In conclusion, I would recommend this barrel over stock any day on the lower end markers. It gave decent improvement and seemed more consistent at rapid fire over stock with out any barrel breaks yet.

Midnight or Blaze. Matte-finish paint doesn't seem to work.
Decent price, great durability...fairly quiet.
I've shot probably 20 or so cases through this barrel. You would think the interior mirror finish would scratch at least a little...but no. It looks brand-new. Granted, I don't ever chop so that may be a factor. No barrel ball breaks either.
Odd thing though, PMI paint doesn't seem to work with the CP. I tried Evil, Premium and a couple others with the matte finish, and all they did was hook. Strange. Anything with a gloss shell seems to work best, especially Midnight.
The only 'drawback' I see is the funky outside milling. I just don't like the way it looks. Personal preference though.
It's a great barrel at a reasonable price. I'm sure there are plenty others just as good, but I have no reason to go buying anything else since this one has worked so well.
Shoots through breaks, with decent accuracy
And Very Very Very light
Ehh, none soo far
Well, i took my equipment out for the first time, first time without bad rentals, and considering I started off as the biggest newb eva, the barrel was awesome. So we have not even started a game yet, we are all in shooting range and refs r checkin the velocity, so i get check, and i am good, i put the barrel plug back on and walk out, before i can put on the saftey I by accidently hit the damn trigger, and a ball broke in the barrel, cuz of the barrel plug, so i am screamin at myself cuz i forgot my squeegy, so I went to the bath room, took off the barrel and drained it with water, hoping tat will do something, I get on the field, game starts, i get in cover ready to start shootin, expectin balls to be all over cuz of the break, especially since i can still see some paint inside, i pull the trigger twice and I hit a guy stickin his head out on my first 2 shots. Pretty awesome, I kept playing and just kept owning, highly recommended barrel!!
Get off your ass, shut down your computer, AND GO BUY THIS DAMN BARREL!
