proteam sleeper with power feed,orracle bolt,black magic in line reg.,outkast lpr ,sto ram,bomb 3 way,
rps allstar work great ,marbs worked good.do not use blaze,they roll out.
very tight pattern at any range..
With a good paint fit ,this barrel will amaze you.It's much better than the cp I own.I'm still trying out different paint .I haven't tried to shoot any balls through it that where too big.Blaze shot just fine ,but they would roll out..I don't care what people say this barrel does NOT break paint.Any broking' paint was my own short stroking problem. Like any barrel ,it doesn't shoot through dirty very well.You will get some crazy flying balls coming out your barrel. And as far as cleaning goes it's not as bad as people say.A good pull through squeegie works just fine. I use a veiw loader pro flex.
Buy this barrel.

I use Diablo Midnights,
They may be a little large, but their thich shells dont easily break.
Very accurate, can outshoot my friend's Empire Twister barrel.
If there's paint in the barrel it screws up the trajectory.
I love the rifling, it makes it shoot a tighter group more consistently.
I tested it against the stock Tippman 98 barrel and the Stealth shot a 2 in. group at 20 yds while the stock barrel shot a 5 in vertical line at 20 yds. (out of 5 shots)
The only weakness that I could find was that if there is any paint in the barrel, the balls will start curving really bad.
I found this out one game, then realized i had been shot in the barrel and that there was some paint in the last inch of the barrel. I grabbed a squeegie and cleaned it out and it shot just like it was new again.
Great barrel, If I had the choice to do it over again, i would have boughten the 13" instead. For me the 16" is just too long, but at 13" it is perfect.
I give it a 9 only because of what happened to the ball's trajectory when there was paint in the bore.
J&J Ceramic if you are low on money get the JandJ but if you got the money the ARMSON is the barrel to get for a sniper
Pro Carbine Remote line 20 oz tank CAR stock and ARMSON STEALTH 16"
I like marbs but any balls will work i have been using PMI PREMIUMS
SUPER QUIET,SHOOTS FAR,very accurate,looks awesome
First time i shot it i though i didnt shoot air cause it was so quiet but the ball hit my target bout 20 yards away dead on it is accurate up to 100 yards easily on my Pro Carbine but i havent shot it on any other gun my friend is getting one for his M98 cause he likes it so much i can shoot up to 200 yards accurate but i have been playin a long time so the price is steep but i am a rich b!tch lol so it dont matter if you got 60$ you can get it's harder to find for the Pro Carbine cause barrels are hard to find for it any ways if you want the best deal email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and i will send you a sight just tell me wut gun and how lond of a barrel you want if you are low on money get a JandJ if you want a quiet barrel but the ARMSON beats them all BUY THIS GUN
GET THIS GUN CAUSE IT IS FLAT OUT THE BEST BARELL I HAVE EVER SHOT AND NEVER BUY A DYE BARREL THEY ARE OVER PRICED AND SUCK!!!!!!
all american - quiet, accurate
j&j ceramic- good but to small bore (mine anyways)
Indian Creek BKO, nitro duck 90/4500 tuff skin, armson stealth 13 in, pb drop forward, riccochet ak, J&J ceramic, 32 degrees skickys.
i like midnights for right now
accuracy, distance, looks, not flashy, sweet groupings at high rates of fire,
none at this point
i got the armson stealth with no porting i thought it was the pro series at first but i think they wanted to get rid of the porting due to ball breaks leaking back in the barrel. The new style or so i think its a new style has 4 openings at the tip of the barrel kinda like the tippman sniper barrel. This barrel is very good on lp guns and really accurate with nitro guns. my bro also has this for his m98 and it is also good on that. I believe that if you have the right paint the rifling makes it shoot further. many will disagree but it doesnt matter what you think. no but this is a great barrel and the only kind with the great rifling.
if your looking for a new barrel and its not a kit with inserts get this barrel it is a good choice but hey make your own decision
Tippmann 98 Custom
-13" Armson Stealth
-Dead On Bullet Drop Forward
-GTA Double Tigger
Diablo Dusk/Blaze or any small-medium sized painballs
-Very accurate and constistant
-Silent (thats how it got its name
Chopped a couple times, but still good
Very good barrel. Not sure if the rifling helps too much, but one of the most accurate barrels none the less. Many people will remember when u hit them from far away, not knowing where it came from. A VERY good upgrade from the stock 98 barrel, which shoots like a cannon and not very accurate. I bought it for $65, half the boomstick and as good or better than it.
Very good buy, going to keep using this barrel. Any new person or professional can use this and own up the field.
-This barrel looks pretty cool
-It makes your gun a tad quiter
-breaks too many balls
-must squeedgie if theres a break
I was fairly dissapointed when I got my armson stealth 16inch rifled barrel. Sure it was very accurate when it shot out the paintball. key: when it shot out the paintball!!!
i had so many breaks in the barrel its unbelievable. I tried turning my velocity down but that didnt work. Turning it up just made more of a mess.
I would go and play and within about 50 shots i can GUARANTEE it would break a ball. so then i would end up switching back to my stock barrel! then i have to ask myself...why did i even buy this barrel in the first place.
It did however shoot very very straight when i could manage to get a ball or 2 out.
and dont efven try to go rapid fire with this thing.
I would recommend something else. If you want an accurate barrel....then just try any of the other hundreds that are out there. Armson tried with the rifling but this is a paintball not a rifle bullet.
accuracy like nothing else
more picky than smoothbore
only 2 sizes except for the tippman
this barrel's unique rifling give it a great amount of accuracy. I was having distance and velocity problems with the tippman stock because it's a piece of crap, so i got this and it shoots great. it increased my range and accuracy. Im also able to rapid fire as well as anyone else with no breaks. Some people say that this barrel chops balls. i have found this not to be true at all and i shoot a 16 inch. Also, since getting this barrel i would have to say that over half my kills have been one shot. You know how people like to stick their mask out to see whats going on, thinking they'll be safe? Well ive shot several people in the mask with one ball from at least 35 yards. None of my friends are stupid enough to do that anymore. I can also tell you that the thing eliminates the crack you get when firing. My friends like to complain about how they can hear me shoot my gun. Another good thing is that since the ball is spinning, you have more breaks on your targets.
The sizes are for the 98 are: 10, 13, 14, 16
anything else and your limited to 13 and 16
One of the best upgrade barrels you can buy with great accuracy. You'll find yourself using half as much paint. Silences and increases range as well. Keep in mind that marbelizers aren't as good of a match as other paintballs.

The Armson Stealth is on my Friends Procarbine that i gave him.
Any medium sized paint: i put pmi premiums, Diablo blaze-inferno-midknight through the barrel and no problems
Havent experienced any yet
First of all this barrel is my friends. He bought it to put it on the pro carbine i gave him. Works like a charm. Accuracy is excellent. ive noticed a lil down curve but still not a prob. This barrel puts unbelievable quietness to the carbine. Just a lil louder than my brothers autococker and we all know how quiet cockers are.
Accuracy: 3 inch groupings at 30+ yds.
all the ppl who have porbs seem to me are using spyders and other guns that have similar designs. I also noticed that the ppl who use these barrels on tippmanns experiencing great improvent on accuracy.
So my conclusion is dont buy this barrel unless u intend to use it on a tippmann
$80 at most places
Great woods gun
Great barrel accuracy and quietness. A must buy if u intend to use it on a tippmann but not for any other guns

Power Ball Paintballs suck in this barrel. I mixed up PMI Premiums, 32 Degrees Team Colors, Draxxus Dusk paintballs and work really good. 1 broke and turned out to be the PMI. Hoping to test out the Nelson Anarchy's.
- You have to choose the right paint
I saw my friends cousin using one and he was rockin people left and right so I decided to get one. At first, I thought it sucked because everytime I shot a ball it broke and later learned that you gotta be picky with the paint you put in this barrel. I was shooting Power Ball Paintballs through the barrel and all it did was break which really ticked me off. Then later I bought PMI Premiums, thats when I learned that the Stealth can really kick some ass. It still shoots pretty good even though you get a ball break, you only lose a little accuracy. I havent had a ball break in a while so I dont know if i was gettin lucky with shots when the ball broke in the barrel so I may be wrong. All I can really say is choose the right paint.
It's a great barrel. It's accurate, quiet, and still shoots good even though you broke a ball in your barrel. It isn't that much to buy one either, I got mine for 45$. I give it a 9 because you cant just use any kind of paint for this barrel. It's up to you what you want to use. If you think this barrel sucks..its because your not using the right paint

Its was for the most part accurate and pretty lite.
Really were none x-cept it shouldent be call the stealth.
I think it is a very good barrel but the only bad part if anything is if a ball breaks in it i shoots the next few balls in every which direction. It is very accurate and lite wait but i wouldnt call it the stealth cuz it wasnt silent or stealthy but it wasnt loud.
