The All American Stainless Rifled Barrels are available in 14" lengths only. They all have the standard bore size (except for the Shocker & Autococker which are available in small bore by request only). In addition to the black, green, and splash color fronts, a stainless front(above, far right) is also available.
The Smart Parts All American Stainless Barrels are older, so while they may be available used and in a few cases new, they are not commonly available anymore.
Best damn barrel you will ever buy. Looks good, shoots accurately even with crap paint, and is whisper quiet, all you can hear is the cock of my back block *chick-chink*... VERY cool. also durable.
My only gripe is that its heavy, being made out of polished stainless and all, BUT that adds to its durability and cool luster. also older diablo paint used to roll out of my barrel, donno if it does that any more, cuz i stopped usin it.
How long is the barrel? -12 inches
What gun? - 97 cocker
What paint works well?- medium bore, smaller bore (diablo inferno) rolls out.
Is it worth the cost? - Hell yes.
How does it compare? no comparasin, i heard its up there with the FREAK set.
Would i reccommend it? - by all means BUY IT!
First off, it is a beautiful but simple looking barrel. The overall quality is excellent. Marballizers shoot great through it. I have a 14 inch stainless/stainless spyder barrel I'm using on a bruizer bandit. It is similiar to a boomstick. The barrel is also very quiet. I dont know if the two piece is any better, I used a friends one piece teardrop and it shoots similiar so It may not be worth the extra money but damn it looks good.
A little heavier, no make that about 3 times heavier than aluminum.
This does lessen the amount of kick back and may balance out some back heavy markers
If you would like to upgrade try this barrel. I got mine for 51 dollars on ebay I dont know If i would say it was worth it if i paid a 100. Take that info for what it is worth. But never the less is a great barrel 10 out of 10
This is a damn good barrel. I can get pretty good range on it, and its pretty damn accurate too. And thats on, what?, 275fps?
I use Powerball cuz thats wut they sell at The Paintball Jungle (very great place in Vallejo, CA, email me for more info), but I think I would like to try some 32 Degrees Team Colors.
Umm.... I set up a target in the ally behind my house and i can hit it dead on in the center from 2.5 houses away.
Sometimes this thing will curve to the right, and that really p*sses me off cuz theres a bunch of yellow crap on my neighbors' fences now. DAMMIT. That makes me so mad dude. I dunno.. it worked fine at the field.. I bet its just the velocity was on a crappy number.
I like this barrel. Its very good. It looks nice, feels nice, and scares the hell outa everyone with my blue Shutter. I'm hella good. Its great for woods. And in one game I took out 7 people! HAHAHA! And that was just rec play against the SF Hornets. Now, was that cuz of the barrel? the Shutter? or me?... Probably the latter, but i couldnt have done it with out the other two.
wanna tell ya a lil story. me and my friend went out into the woods to test out the barrel when i first got i. he fired about 10 shots, then tured around and said "u gonna shoot or not?". the "heck" of it all is, had shot more than 10 shots already. I have tried alot of barrels, the m98 stock(but of course it sucked), Dye Boomstick, Dye Excel, J&J Ceramic, and a Dye Stainless. The All-American stainless, is the by far the quietest of all, and i'd say the most accurate of all as well. The distance is also exceptional,but the boomstick may have shot a little further, but not nearly as straight.
i cant think of very many things. if you use very very very crappy paint, dont get this barrel. I used 32 Degrees TeamColors, andhad absolutely no problem. i've had the barrel for about 6 months, and only had one ball break. it can be a little difficulttoclear after a break. i recommend 2 or 3 clearing shots and then a little squeegieing. other than those things, nothing at all.
the All-Americanis a 14-inch piece of work. itsa great barrel. I usedit on my tippmann M98, but i know guys that use them on thier angels and their Spyders. they all agree that its a great barrel. in the standard bore size barrel, all of the 32 Degrees paint works well, i recommend Team colrs myself. as far as the small bore barrels are concerned, i really dont know what paint to use. It's wel worth what it costs. it's actually worth WAY WAY more, to me. IN my opinion The All-American blows every other barrel out of the water, but if you object i can say this "see ya on the field". I would recommend this barrel to anyone and everyone. its outstanding.
it's a great barrel, heavy in the back, light in the front, accurate shot, great distance, really good feel. i played wih a boomstick, and this just blows it outta the water, and it was a ton cheaper too. I really like the spiral porting as well. I turn some heads out on the field if nothing else. They all say stuff like "I dont care how good the barrel is, I wouldn't spend $150 on one" it's great to tell them that i paid nowhere near that. But more than anything else, i love to smoke people with expensive guns and barrels with my little $300 set-up. It's a great feeling. WONT MISS WITHOUT YOUR HELP!!!!!!!!!
nothing really bad about this barrel, except i had to tone down my Response Trigger because the balls were catchin up to one-another in the barrel. but u will have that problem with any 14 inch barrel. other than that, no problems.
i used a 14 inch barrel and it worked out great. the gun i use is a highly modified Tippmann 98 Custom. I as an RT kit, a gas-thru-grip, a sticky grip, a nitrogen kit, can be operated on CO2 or nitrogen, and of course the 14-inch Smart PArts All-American Stainless. I use 32 Degrees team colors paint, i found that it works the best for me. Zap paint is also okay. I would gladly fork over twice as much as I did for this barrel and it would be worth every penny. But i didn't have to so i didn't. I think it out performs every barrel out there. I would recommend it to every person that plays paintball, new to the game, or been playin for years.
-Very, Very Quiet
-Fairly Accurate(although I don't think I am using the right paintballs so it could be better)
-Two Pieces (which helps contribute to quietness & accuracy)
Pretty much nothing other than that I need to find the right paint match
-14 inch (Silver & Black)
-Spyder Xtra (no upgrades yet other than this one)
-I used Vortex Quake Paintballs which worked well in the stock barrel but don't work as well in this one
-Yes it was worth as much as it costed especially because it costed $50 although I'm not sure if you'll get one cuz there on special and when they run out it is over
-My friend has a Dye Stainless (using Midnight paint) for the same exact gun and it is much more accurate but I still think it's because he has a perfect paint to barrel match and I don't yet
This barrel is awesome and perfect for my style of play and where I play (woods) because it is quiet and helps to make my location harder to find (and no I AM NOT A CAMPER: I DON'T LIKE CAMPERS)
It's a very small bore in the back and large in the front so again I don't know wether to go with a large or small paint (I think small will work better though)
If anyone knows a good,cheaper priced (Blaze, Midnight, Proball or TC) paint that works good in this barrel post it on this site for this barrel
9 out of 10

I have this barrel on my Custom Spyder and i love it. Out of like 6000 rounds i've used with this barrel, maybe like 5 paintballs have broken and its becuase they are X Brand [in other word it kinda cheap piant($40 for 2000), lol].
Nothing at all.
I've used a 14 inch Dye barrel and a 14 inch JT Barrel and i still think my 14 inch All American is the best on my Syder Compact Custom (200 bucks worth of after market parts). Its worth the price, trust me. I would recommend it to all those people that need to change thier stock barrel. Its also good for a weapon (just kidding)
This is the greatest barrel on earth for the money. I have had one on all of my guns and there is only one barrel ever that has beaten it and it was a custom J&J mag barrel made for a tourney team several years ago. Even if you could find one of these it would probably be over $200. One tourney I borrowed a titanium boomstick and after the AA I was dissapointed emensly
I wish mine was anoed
I'm telling you of all the barrels i've shot its the best barrel in production
