Spyder Fenix ACS Green, Viewloader Revvy, 14 inch Proto One Piece, Dye Sticky 3 grips
Don't Know, Origin worked fine.
Accurate, quiet, looks.
Great Barrel, i shot about 300 paintballs through it in my Fenix, and didn't chop one. Of course, with a rental barrel I shot several thousand and havn't chopped one, but it doesn't make my gun chop at least. Extremely accurate even with CO2, and quiets my loud spyder quiete a bit. I got this from actionvillage for 27 dolla's and for this quality performance, I have to recomend it to everyone. Great barrel for the money!
Get it, it's the best barrel you'll ever find for under 30 dollars, I gurantee that.

All I can say is WOW ! I mine this barrel can compete with just about any out there. And for only $28! I mean the classic Smart Part Progessive and Teardrop have dominated one piece barrels, but now they got some new competition ! The barrel works great. Its easily the most accurate for the price. Also, it has an excellilent amount of porting. This means it decrease the volume of your gun when firing. Once again this is an excellent barrel for $28.
I say buy it, you cant go wrong, its 28 dollars and an excellent barrel !

Chrome Q Lock
PMI 68/30 with Empire Tank Cover
Halo B with RIP
Black Proto 1 piece
I used Kick'n and they worked great. Just use decent paint, and you'll mow some fools
I had just bought this Barrel as an upgrade from my Local paintball field, Colors paintball in West MI, and it looked pretty nice, and it looked even better on my gun. I was really excited to use this barrel. When I played uesterday, I had ball on ball accuracy. I couldn't belive that a $40 barrel could shoot like a $100+ one. This barrel definately proved itself, giving me amazing accuracy compared to my Stock barrel which had so-so accuracy.
This barrel is awesome, for the price, this barrel is amazing. I didn't have a single break all day, and at the end of the day, the barrel's inside looked brand new. If you want to get a nice barrel for your Gun, look at this one.

-Progressive is the only comparible one for this price
Piranha EVO with a T-board, blade trigger, proto barrel, dead on paintball drop, trinity feed neck, halo b with rip, system-x 90/4500 tank. OR stock vision impulse
stingers, marbs, basically high end paint or even seconds would work
This is a great barrel, it comes stock on the proto matrix. I love this barrel and i only got it for 27 dollars from xpaintball.com. I tested it with stingers from RPS and i was shooting ropes at a tree about 50 feet away and every ball hit within 3 or 4 inches of my intended target. You can use any paint no matter what size bore they are because the barrel is a .690 for every thread accept 'cocker and they are .693.
This is a great barrel for any skill level. If you are looking for a great inexpensive barrel look no further, they come in red,blue,silver,and black. both in matte and polished- 12,14,16 inch lengths are availible. if there are any questions leave a comment

Only tested with local field paint ( just got the gun, this barrel and the boomstick came with it)
Very light, Straight Shooter, Accuracy not bad, Looks good
Sometimes i got an odd ball that curved way left or right
This is the stock barrel that comes with the 05 Matrix. I tested this barrel along with the boomstick to see how they compare to one another. In both barrels i had zero chops, i fired about 200 rounds through each. The boomstick in my opinion out preformed the proto, but for a stock barrel i was very impressed. In close range (15ft) both barrel shot almost exactly the same, except for the proto having an odd ball every once and awhile where a ball would go crazy right, or left. The longer range is where i saw the difference. The boomstick had much greater accuracy at 30+ft. I was shooting a barrel about 35 ft away and the proto hit 9 out of 10 times with a pretty good grouping. The boomstick hit 10 out of 10 times, with very good grouping (most of the balls landed on top of each other). I will not say anything bad about this barrel and in my opinion it is a very good product. If anyone is in need of a new barrel let me know, i would consider selling it. I will sell for a very good price just to help someone out if they needed a barrel. I am only considering this because my gun came with a boomstick. Email me with any questions.
Barrel is very good for the price and will out preform many other barrels out there. For the price you pay, this barrel is an excellent buy and keeps up with the other high priced barrels out there. This barrel is very light and looks excellent. I rate this barrel an 8 just because of the occasional curve i had, i don't know if it was just the paint i was using but that didn't happen with the boomstick. I will eventually test it with different paint and i will post my results.

This came stock on my freinds proto trix. the first time we shot it, we were testing it with wal mart scortch cause we couldnt get any good stuff at the moment. it scortch matched up great and we ripped away. with this barrel on that gun, it was rediculously accurate. probably one of teh most accurate setups ive seen. i didnt even have you try to put ball on ball. i could 1 hand shoot and put ball on ball (very accurate, and gun had no kick). it wasnt very loud, and looks good. its pretty light, but might be short for airball. its a great stock barrel.
obviously, the barrel has good performance. however after seeing the advantages to teh 2 peice proto, obviousl my review has changed. great stock barrel, but i gotta move rating down because 2 peice is better. see my otehyr review for details
Besides an ultralight, freak, or lucky 15, or kaner, its probably one of teh best stock barrels ive seen come on a gun. very good barrel. not on par with barrel kits, cause of single barrel, but for a 1 peice if the paint fits it is very accurate. i give it a 10 for a 1 peice barrel.
after seeing the 2 peice proto rating has changed.

Zap works fine with it but I think there is a better paint out there for this barrel
A lot of ports to clean if you get a ball break
Well I bought this barrel because it got great reviews, looks great, accurate and it came in the color red. So my Brass Egale set up looks pimp with this barrel. Tried this barrel on my bro's spyder imagine before I got mine and it works great. Not as accurate as his J&J but it is 2 inches shorter then his. I would recommend this barrel to anyone playing paintball it's just that good. I mean I love my J&J barrel but I love this one just as much just have to carry and squeegee in case of a break or someone shots you through your barrel. It happened to me once so don't thing it's that rare.
For $30 bucks online or at sports chalet you can't beat it. Comes in black, blue, red or silver and looks great. There is always something better out on the market and nothing is perfect so I won't be giving this a 10.

Proto 1 piece 14in. red
X Balls, Evil, Even some cheap brands
Very light weight, nice anodizing (mathces my red gun!), accurate, nice looks, cheap
Well, i was on a tight budget so i put this barrel in the cart, about 25 dollars. I heard it comes stock with a proto. My first impression was that it looks very sharp, and matches my anodizing. I put it on my bushy and ran about a case through it. No chops, then again, i dont chop with pds. Very accurate for such a cheap barrel, i think it likes more expensive brands of paintball though, however, zap and big ball work just fine. The faster you shoot, the more accurate it seems to get. Very good buy.
Buy this barrel if you're om a tight budget and still want to get an accurate and nice looking barrel. Good deal.
even cheap ones worked great in mine, so good ones should work really good.
This barrel has worked great, and increased my a5's accuracy and apperance. dosen't do much for the loudness, but it never said it would. VERY good barrel for 40 bucks! There are some horrible things out there in the "under $50" range, but this isn't one of them!
If you are using ANY stock barrel, go get this barrel now! It will help, i promise. I wouldn't waste my money if I already had a more expensive one. nobody needs a collection of barrels. i give it a nine cause its awesome, but i still want a boomstick!
This barrel is awesome. It looks great on a tippmann. It shoots just like you would want any gun to. It's quiet, accurate, and no picky on paint at all. I shot a tree 9 out of 10 shots from 50 yards away, and the paintballs had paint on them. you decide how acurate it is.
I would recommend thhis barrel to anyone who wants perfection. Trust me, its awesome
