M98 with 2stage expansion chamber, 14" Armson stealth.
Marbelizers/proballs, although I have used solid orange color balls that i dotn knwo the name of but they work fine even in the winter. I wouldnt be suprised if a BRASS EAGLE ball worked in thsi barrel since it is great-though I have never tried it.
I saw this barrel on a Airgun Designs 68classic and it was extreemly quiet and accurate so I baught one a few motnhs later for my Tippy 98 and it works great. it reduces the noise of the stock barrel adequatly and adds about 50ft more range with a lot more accaracy instead of the balls hittign to the left then right then center of the stock barrel. Adds noise but does not sound as quiet as angels etc. Peopel sya it scratches easy, but I play in the woods all the time and it has yet to scratch at all even when I crawl through berry bushes.
Well I never had it break a ball ever in three months of bassicaly straight use, but soem people wil ltell you it does. It is just a matter of your velocity being set right.
Great, good deal even for 90$, though you cna get it for 60$

not pretty but I think it looks good, the rifling looks nice to bad it doesn't work
I was hoping that a 16" barrel w/rifling would be more accurate after many tests with different guns and expenssive paint our results showed no improvement
I compared this barrel to the stock 12" barrel that came with my gun(PI-E2), a 12" smartparts (progressive) and a 14" J&J Ceramic. With targets at 100ft., 120ft. and 150ft. We found absolutely no improvement. All barrels were tested using JT, Marbalizer and Anarchy paint. After spending $70 on this barrel I would say I'm pretty dissapointed.
umm...not sure probably the same as most rifled barrels
CORE sharc with this barrel (armson stealth)
All-star ___ DO NOT PUT ZAP IN!!!
good accuracy....its rifled so that puts spin on it and gives more distance good for a snyper!!
doesnt work that well in the cold if u use C02 because it makes the barrel really cold and starts 2 chop paint
this barrel is accurate and has good distance for a snyper....not that good if ur using it rapid cause it could start 2 chop paint. Its mostly used for a person who likes 2 scope people out!!! Buy this barrel if u have the money and u like 2 scope people out
inside the barrel there is a swirl that makes the barrel a lot more accurate
pretty good distance
i compared it with all the barrals listed above and it stood up up to all of them
if not better
i havent broke a ball
pro-carbine with the 16 inch armson stealth barrel
very accurate and it gets pretty good distance
in one game i hit seven people in the mask from 50 to 85 yards away
awsome sniper barrel
im not lyin get this barrel
my friend was using the dye boomstick and we compared barrels-mine was just as accurate if not then better mine was also just as quiet and it is 35 dollars cheaper
the flatline goes farther but the armson stealth makes up with accuracy
Tru-flight CQB - straight rifled for Spyder TL- OK barrel not the best
Tippmann Pro/Carb w/ CAR stock, Palmer Stabilizer, raised sight rail, tasco red dot, Armson Stealth 13", polished internals.
Use Marbalizer or All Star. - Slam and El Tigre are also good.
Unbelievable accuracy!!! I absolutely cannot believe how accurate my gun is. I can hit the same spot with my red dot from crazy distances. (Sorry, I never really measured)
The barrel for my Pro/carb is SOOOO quiet. Everyone I play against swears I have a silencer on my gun. Just a little thwup, thwup. Sweet.
People who knock a barrel because of it's innaccuracy. What really chaps my ass is someone who buys a nice barrel, shoots the WORST paint through it, and still expect the barrel to perfrom miracles. The barrel was designed to shoot small bore paint like marb's or all star. I never have a ball break when using good paint. DON'T BUY A BARREL FOR ACCURACY, THEN SHOOT CHEAP PAINT THROUGH IT! If you have to shoot cheap paint, use your stock barrel! Not only that, but half the time the gun itself is breaking the balls!
If you are willing to spend a little extra for a barrel, only do so if you are willing to shoot good paint through it. If you do so, you WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED with the Armson Stealth. I love mine.
this thing is awesome. super accurate. i think the rifling makes it so sweet. i dont know if it helps or not but it sure seems like it. wherever you point i at. the ball is gonna go there.
and IF you do break a ball (note the IF) it just shoots like it doesnt even have paint in it. i never noticed that i had a ball break after many games until someone pointed it out to me. ( only cuz i double pumped)
the advertised bore size is wrong
right now, its under the "small" section but i have medium balls that go right through it with room to wiggle and jiggle.
so im guessing the bore size is on the bigger side.
get it. you seriously wont believe it until you shoot it.
I have used tippman stock, tl plus stock, spyder one stock, dye boomstick
I have a tippman 98
double trigger converter kit
Custom Products drop forward
Armson Stealth 16in
Sure Shot Paintball Sight
Other than that no internal changes besides trigger, just a few facelifts for the ol' ippman
nel splat is fitted really nicely and they are cheap and sold almost anywhere, if u want to spend more money than marbilizers work alright but not as well as nel splat for me, stay away from power ball and of course u know what i am going to say next thats right the peice of crap Brass Eagle aka BE
It looks sweet and has a clean look to it, about as accurate as a tippman can get with Co2, shoots them straight but with the velocity too high the porting spins the balls out so stay around 280-330 and it will shoot far and dead on, easy to clean and doesnt break balls to often
it unscrews alot on a tippman, it scratches easy, it can be pricey, the 16in is too long for speedball if your gettin it on a 98, go with a 13in it does the same job just less hassle
this is the barrel to buy becuase it is cheap and quiet, shoots straight and works well with alot of paint, but if u have the money to blow than get a dye boomstick at least for a tipp or a spyder
i have used dye exccel but i wanna aska question. Any one who can help me with this please email me. Milf5851@hotmail.com. What kind of Armson barrell other then one thats supposed to fit a spyder will fit on a phirana?
Pmi STS G2 Expansion. Dye excell 14".
of coarse marbz, Blaze, infernos. For godsakes avoid brass eagle, unless you like cleaning
incredible accuracy and very quiet i only used it 2 times.
scratches easy, thats bout it
All i wanna know is this answer to my question. What kind of Armson barrell other then one thats supposed to fit a spyder will fit on a phirana? Email's at the top. Worked incredibly well both times i played with it i used 2000 balls through it of all three brands that i name didnt chop or break one ball. Luck? maybe. But doubtful
