While the ceramic is being applied teflon is injected into the pores of the aluminum, resulting in the slickest, yet most durable surface in the world. These barrels are quiet, light, and accurate. Available in 12", 14", 16", and 20" for most guns.
The J&J Performance Ceramic Barrels are newer, so they should be commonly available, both new and used.
Any paintball Manufactured by Draxxus.
It is very affordable, Very Accurate, They come in 12, 14, 16 and 20 in
The paint sometimes didn't break on target at the 180+ Foot range
I used a 14in barrel which is talked about in this review.When I shot using this Paintball Barrel I found this was a great barrel and performed very well for its price. The accuracy on the barrel was better than I imagined it also made the distance of the paintball far greater than the stock barrel with the added accuracy. The barrel is at a good price. The paint Breaks on target from 0-180 foot range and still gives you good performance/accuracy from +180 ft than most barrels on the market. The paint broke on Target and not in your barrel or gun. The sound of the gun was reduced by 85% compared to the stock barrel. The barrel is also make from t6 aluminum also used in aircrafts. It is also self cleaning in case one of your paintballs breaks in the barrel,which is small chance the paintball will break.
When I used this barrel I shot about 250+ rounds I found I could hit anything from 0-180 FT. When you try to hit something farther then that range the ball starts to curve. Out of the 250+ rounds I shot 0 broke in the barrel or in the gun. The ball shot smoothly out of the barrel. The gun had no scratches
When you shoot with this barrel you know your paintball is going to go to the target and not break in your barrel. If you have about $50 to spend and you are looking for a good barrel or a new upgrade you should buy the J&J barrel it performs just as good or even better than a Dye or a 32 degrees barrel and it is cheaper than most of them.
Almost anything, but i suggest high quality paint. I use PMI Marballizers
-Cleans after breaks
Nnone that i can think of!
This is the best barrel for under $50. There is no better barrel out there for under $50. I love this barrel and I will never buy another one!
There are many reasons to love this barrel and I will state them all!
It is amazing how accurate this barrel really is. I shot a 1 gallon paint bucket at about 50 feet and out of the 10 shots i fired 8 hit it. Great accuracy!
I dont know why or how, but this barrel is very quiet. The other day i had a friend shooting at me with a J&J Ceramic, and i could not tell where he was.
This should be the biggest topic to talk about. I still havent figured out how this barrel is sold for $40 and the company still makes a profit. This is truly the best barrel that you can buy for under $50. This barrel can shoot just as well as some of the $150+ barrels, yet the company only sells them for around $40.
-Cleans After Breaks-
At first i didnt believe this, but then i shot it. Even though it very very very seldomly breaks a ball (almost never) it cleans itself after the break. Due to the very slick inner lining, the next ball fired pushes the broken ball and paint through the holes or the end of the barrel.
This is one of the greatest ideas to ever hit paintball. Due to the dull finish, the barrel does not shine, therefore it is easier to move without it shining.
This barrel is very light too. It is lighter than the stock barrel of My A-5 and it is 1.5" longer than the stock barrel.
-The only weakness is that there are some $100+ barrels that can outdo this one!
This is the best money saving up-grade for any gun. This is by far the best investment that I have ever made!

J&J 14" Ceramic barrel
Not Brass Eagle...works best with paintballs on the large size.
Finish scratches easily
I recommend this barrel to anyone cause it frickin rocks!! The best one you can get for under 50 bucks. i got mine off of ebay for 35!!! anyway, its very accurate, never chops balls, very light, and very quiet. my only complaint is that the outside of the barrel can easily scratched or might chip when you drop it.

J.J. Ceramic 14 inch barrel
Haven't had any paintballs break on me from using Walmart cheapest to field paint.
Haven't found any
Played with the barrel for the first time last weekend, it made a huge difference in my marker. The accuracy was improved 100% and distance was improved too. I didn't give my marker the distance of a flat line but I felt I had an advantage over most other markers I was playing with.
This barrel was the best upgrade I have done to my marker. It put groupings in paper within 3 inches at 35 yards. The stock barrel I was getting groups at 10 inches. No more curves from cheap paint and my marker now can reach out and touch someone.
i have used all types but noticed cheap field paint seemed to perform worse(but hey- it's cheap field paint)
i bought this barrel after checking reviews and prices on many products. i have been using it for about a year now and am very happy with it. first off, it is true about this being "self-cleaning", if you break a ball just shoot again and the break will be cleaned right out. this does not mean you never have to run a swab through it however. it is ported so paint can still clog the small holes towards the end of the barrel. you just don't have to swab it in the middle of a game.
second, if you have a 98 custom like me the finish on this barrel PERFECTLY matches the finish on a black 98c. third. this is a very light barrel considering it is 14" long, it feels like the same weight as the stock 8" barrel. fourth, i did not conduct scientific tests but i can tell you you will notice better range and accuracy over the stock barrel. don't expect a miracle-nothing replaces practice.
now, not every marker has the same threads, but because my 98c has very coarse threads i managed to chip off part of the thread when installing the o-ring at the end of the barrel. this does not affect performance or fit but it could have been worse. fine threaded markers should not have this minor problem. the barrel is very sturdy and as long as you don't hit baseballs with it you should be ok. just watch those coarse threads.
Great looks and performance for about $35. how can you go wrong? giving it a nine because of the thread thing but that is really more of a tippy design issue rather than a j&j issue.

probably scorch; only tried blue streak.
Accurate, silent, and cheap.
The o-ring hard to get on barrel
Well i got this barrel today and shot 100 blue streaks through it around twenty minutes ago. The balls were bad so you cant expect anything too great but its accuracy was decent even with the cheap paint. This weekend i will test it further up at mountain top paintball with quality paint.
Accurate, silent, cheap, looks great, what do you have to loose

Cheap, accurate, lightweight, and quiet.
Scratches easily when I put it in or take it off the gun.
So far, I've used this barrel on my gun for a couple of rounds. I've used J&J barrels on different guns though, so I knew what I was getting. For a couple of bucks, I got a great lightweight barrel that is ultra-accurate. The paint I've shot through it was kinda funny though. Some of the Marbs we've got at work have been sitting for a few weeks, and some have become almost football shaped. The ones that were round went straight and kept hitting within a few inches of the others, while the oblong ones went way off to the sides. I was laughing for a few seconds after that little incident.
As for the quiet factor- My ION with my J&J is about half as loud as my co-worker's Super Stock with his stock barrel.
For the price, why would anyone NOT buy one of these? Heck, they are so cheap they should come standard on any gun over $200.

Piranha stock barrel
Custom Products 12"
Custom Products 16"
Smart Parts All American 14"
Used on both Piranha STS w/ nitro. and Spyder Compact 2000 w/ CO2
Any with normal bore size work, team colors shot very well
Be VERY CAREFUL with this barrel, Warps (Bends) easilly
This is one of the most accurate barrels i've shot in paintball, but i had heard of a problem with these barrels warping, but ignored it and learned it the hard way. After setting it in my garage for about 2 months, with one end on the floor and another end sitting up on a roll of tape, I came back and it was warped left, and while still being very precise, the paintballs shot through it consistently hit 6-8" left of where i'm aiming (depending on how far). If not bent, this is one of the best and most accurate barrels i have ever used with spyder threading, with comparable accuracy to the smart parts all-american for a much lesser price.
If you want the performace of a $100 barrel and you only want to spend $40, this is an excellent choice.

Elimanator paintball very good and cheap (like Premium grade) had a box 1 year old worked like i just bought it. www.ebalz.com
Doesn't actually clean well
When i first got the barrel i thought it was the greatest invention since sliced bread, i guess i was partly correct. TRUE, it does clean it self, but one problem that i thought it would fix i wouldn't need a squegee WRONG. Yes the barrel does clean itself but, it only cleans it self to shoot a little weaker than straight. it cleans but doesn't clean like a good old sqeegee clean.
I would buy it again if i knew this information but wouldn't be as satisfied

This a great barrel and is very cheap which is good if you want to save money for other upgrades and stuff. i reccomend it.
