They are available for most markers in 12", 14", and 16" lengths. The All American Barrels are made in two sections, a front and a back. The back of the barrel (the part that screws into the marker) is available in three bore sizes (small, standard, large). The front of the barrel (the ported section) acts as a spinning chamber. The air in front of the ball is pushed out of the holes reducing turbulence and the gases behind the ball are vented in such a way to impart a slight spin on the paintball. The All American barrel has a front section with a larger bore than the back. Fronts are available in two standard colors (black & green) and 7 splash colors (shown above).
The Smart Parts All American Barrels are newer, so they should be commonly available, both new and used.
The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion on the comments page.

Small, light, comes stock with shocker, easy to clean.
Back and tip are different bore size (see review)
Ok now, i been training every weekend during this year (have tested a couple of high ends), got myself a shocker 6 months ago. I love this barrel, cause I play front, so it helps to stay really tight.
Size: Like I said before, it's only 10 inch.
Back bore size: Let's see, I used my redz barrel kit to determine this, it's approximately .685 to .689, so it fills my needs. The inside of this barrel looks very smooth, so it does not cause to much friction.
Lenght: The back is 6" long, and tip another 6"
Weight: Well, it's made of aluminum, so it is very light, no problems there.
Sound: This barrel quiets my marker by A LOT, I have shot without it, and I can really tell the difference.
Accuracy: Using the right paint to barrel match, this barrel can put paint on the exact same spot (except for really long distances :s)
There is only one little detail about this barrel that I don't like. That's the long distance accuracy (let's say, from back center to back center in a 5 man field), it's not much of a deal if you play front, but if you need the distance it can be really a pain in the #$ss.
Anyway, I found a really easy solution to this problem. Since the back and tip are different bore sizes, it helps to take of the tip for long distances (I know is hard to believe, but there is an explanation for this). But the drawback to this is that it makes the marker quite loud
The paintball stays tight in the barrel (back only), so when you fire, air burts right on it, causing very little turbulence, but, since the tip is a larger bore, it makes air rush through everywhere, so it gives the paintball a strange effect.
If you play front like me, it doesn't matter if you use the tip. This barrel works very well at short to mid distances.
This barrel is great, the best part for me is that it came stock with my marker. It's not perfect, but I believe it is one of the best pieces out there.

Spyder Stock Barrel: By far one of the worst barrels out there. It made me think that my gun was inaccurate when really it was just the barrel. It would put curves on balls that would make a major league pitcher jealous. The spyder stock is by far the worst barrel i have ever used and i think that a 6 inch barrel would be better

Excellent barrel. I bought it right after i used my spyder extra for the first time. The all american turned me from a spray and pray to a shoot shot for shot, an all shots count kind of guy. Over all excellent couldn't ask for anything much better for that price.
Overall excellent. wishing i could give a 12 out of 10

What is a weakness again?
When you see something for the first time and you just know it will be great, even that inspirational music starts to play out of know where. That was exactly what happened to me when i saw this barrel. 14" is the best length all around and it was so accurate. The accuracy also depends on the paintball, but i always try to shoot the best through my gun.
For $70 it is a great deal. This barrel will not let you down during a tourney.

I suggest Diablo Heats, or Marbilizers. It is best to find a paintball that fits your barrel, as no barrel is exactly the same.
Not self cleaning
This barrel came with my shocker, and I was originally going to upgrade to a Freak barrel and barrel kit, but after playing a couple of times with it, I don't see any reason to. This barrel is very very accurate. I don't know the numbers or anything, but I was shooting ropes into a square box that was about 1' x 1'. My only problem with this barrel is that it isn't self cleaning. (teflon coated) Its not good in a game when I get a random blow in the barrel. (not the barrel's fault, I accidentally turn off the eyes sometimes...) Other then that, as long as you have good eyes and logic, it is an excellent barrel
Because of the lack of teflon coating, it gets a 9, I'd give it a 9.5 if that were possible, because that is a minor flaw. Great barrel, could be enhanced with a barrel kit.

Not That Loud
The first barrel i bought for 65 bucks and all i have got from is positive things like Killer Accuracy a Sweet Looking barrel, when i first got it i was like i hope its worth what i payed for it an as soon as it came in i got some air and paint and tested it in my backyard cause i couldn't wait, i first fired it and i was like Damn wow i was aiming at a small bird house about 50-75 feet away and i hit hit it DEAD ON so i was really really impressed with the barrel, Highly Accurate
I highly recommend this barrel to any one who wants a good barrel, crazy accuracy and a freaking awesome looking barrel
rodeo, all american barrel stock everyting else. kingman rocking trigger coming soon along with new bolt....still deciding which one tho
Accurate, makes any gun look sick, quality product
i just bought this barrel after having a stock rodeo for....WAY TOO LONG!! i bought this barrel after reading all the fantastic views on it and it just happened to be exactly in my price range:). i have been playing with a stock gun for bout 2 years now and i thought it was finally time to make a few upgrades so i can be up there with the big boyz, not that im saying my stock rodeo is bad coz i love that thing and it kept me going for 2 years, i just think its time to upgrade lol k back to my review. this barrel greatly increased the accuracy of my marker, i am yet to conduct a proper test but from jus playing around with it out back i can tell it absolutely chops the stock barrel. i was aiming at a thin pole (REALLY THIN) about 10 or so metres away and i was pinning it with most balls coming out of my gun with wuite outstanding grouping. when angled up this barrel will fly the paintball forever making it great for "off the break kills".
this barrel looks absolutely outstanding it makes my rodeo look like the mean fighting machine i want it to look like!
if ur looking for a fairly cheap but f@&king wicked upgrade for ur maker then buy this barrel, you wont regret it. the amount of difference this barrel will make on ur maker for the price is amazing!! BUY IT!

Made from an extruded process, not gun drilled.
Gave my old Ion with Dynasty Body to my friend and purchased a whole new Dynasty Ion. The All American that came with the marker was black and had a very shiny finish like all SP barrel products. I've already shot five cases of practice and field paint through this thing and have only had a few breaks with pracitice paint.
The only thing I don't like about the All American is how they are made. Like the SP Freak, the barrels are made from an extruded process in which they are then machined and honed to the correct size. This saves on manufacturing cost. If they were made with a gun drilling process like Lapco or Powerlyte barrels, I would be more pleased.
If you're not a stickler like I am about how a barrel is made, this is a great barrel. You get it with the Dynasty Ion and you won't need another after that.
it dosen't really matter, but marbs work very well
-The longer it is, the worse
-dosen't make the gun as quiet
This is a really good barrel. The spiral porting makes this so much more accurate. The 2 peice construction is nice, made out of a sturdy metal. the barrel has superb accuracy, and looks good on the gun too. the only other problem i have with it is it dosen't make the gun an quieter It is very cheap, most places you can find it for $65. another great barrel by Smart Parts.
This is the barrel to get. It improves your accuracy, and dosen't burn a hole in your pocket.

Anything. It'll shoot well through most decent sized and good quality paints. Even monster balls. but I prever RPS Rampage or stinger, Just good entry level paint.
Tight shot groupings and a clear honed inside, well made.
Barrel is hard to unscrew, See Review.
Well, this is my second all american. To be honest, I loved the styling and love it now. It's the NEWEST reincarnation of the all american.However, Mine had some problems. It came with some adhesive that stained the anno on the back of the front, and on the front of the front there is a damaged splotch of anno that will kill resale value. shoots great.
Great barrel, watch your anno quality. I got mine from a dealer so yeah. Anyway, Get it if you can afford it, otherwise CP's or something of the like are a GREAT way to go as well.

Great barrel, i've had mine for about 2 years now and it doesn't give me any problems. It was the quietest barrel of all my friends until one of them got an ion. If a ball does brake it's because you choped it with the bolt. It didn't brake in the barrel.
Buy one now because i said so
