Precision-Rifled Barrel Specifically Designed for Paintball
Four years in development, the Tru-Flight Rifled Barrel is making paintball history for: Extreme Accuracy,
Greater Distance, and
The CMI International Tru-Flight Barrel is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Accurate at close range
Long distance not accurate tho
Balls drop really fast
Hard to clean
Inaccurate at long range
I got this barrel off ebay for $20 i guess u get wat u pay for becuz u cant hit a thing at 30 yards with this barrel they have to be literally at the end of it to be hit. Do to the no spin rifling the ball doesnt have enough power to make it as far as othe 16'' barrels. if u arc up ur gun it will go far but it be a miricle if u hit anything.
PLZ dont be a cheap skate like me and get this barrel save up 20 more dollars and get a decent barrel. Dont buy this piece of junk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any high grade one. :P
-Adds quite some distance
-The inside wears pretty easy. Unless that's just mine.
This barrel lowers noise quite a substantial amount. But it's still a solid barrel so expect some noise. I was testing my gun in my garage (it's big and makes echoes). I shot a few times and there were just quiet echoes. I was not disappointed.
I got this barrel for my 98 and it's true, 98 stock barrels suck in the accuracy department. I swapped the stock for this and found that I was shooting straighter right away.
-Adds quite some distance
Again, 98 stock barrels have no range. I got this barrel and immediatly found that I could shoot my targets quite some distance away.
The large to short bore look on the outside looks cool. And the tip of the barrel and the stripe portings there also make it look good.
A good, cheap barrel that can be used by anyone. Go check it out sometime.
This is awesome!!!! NO CHOPS!!!!!!! Lots of distance and accuracy! Pretty quiet! Great for sniping! I used this barrel and it is so much better than the stock barrel on a 98c. Don't waste your money... get this now! Get this if you want a cheap barrel that has it all!I dunno what people are talking about when they say this thing chops! No way!
Piranha R6 Black, Palmers Stabilizer Richochet 2k Hopper, 14" CMI Rifled Tru-Flight Barrel, 9oz tank + tank butt.
NOTE: Going to buy the tru-flight QUIET BARREL, and use this as my back up. It's the SAME EXACT barrel but with a new feature, it's more silent than this one.
Anything works since it's dual bore
bunch of 2nds paint
Use Any Paintballs
Nothing with my barrel
I purchased this barrel to shoot farther distances. I original practiced shooting at a box target from a distance of 10 feet. I noticed I can only shoot about 15 feet before having to tilt my marker up a little. That was with the marker chronod at 300 out of the box.
I purchased this barrel because it featured the rifled technology. I just took it out to the field this past week. Here's my assessment.
ACCURACY - Extremely accurate (I use RPS/PMI BIG BALL they make marbilizer)
0-65 FEET guaranteed hit anywhere you want, as many times as you want
I have ok aim, but not the greatest. I've practiced about 600 shots, about an hour at a time so I'm alright.
Update: Hit where you want to hit
EASE OF CLEANING - Only use a brush squeeze, never tried one of the other plastic/synthetic squeegees but I hear complaints that sometimes it's hard to clean. The barrel is rifled, as well as dual bored. This means when you touch the inside of the barrel, you'll notice the rifling actually rises up a little. For the synthetic circle squeegees, they're circles. That's great for regular barrels but this barrel has the special rifling feature, which makes the insides NOT a perfect circle but a rifled barrel. There are pieces in the barrel that rise up, from the bottom to the top of the barrel. That keeps your paintball from spinning, but it also leaves a space in the barrel if you don't use a brush squeegee that can get into the grooves.
DURABILITY - AirCraft Grade material. Light weight SOLID SOLID SOLID. I mean hardcore SOLID. To actually dent this sucker, you gotta do it on purpose. Or drop something really really heavy on it. And it has to be a sharp object focusing the force on one part, otherwise it won't dent. Push this barrel through any obstacle, and it's good to go.
Ease Of Use - I got a 9oz tank so I can crawl AND HAVE MY MARKER AIMED WHILE I CRAWL. You see me (if you on my team) you'll notice I'm aiming the whole time, one handed. It's not so heavy it breaks your hand. It's actually pretty light weight. Not made of steel, but some high grade aircraft material.
BUY THIS TO SAVE ON PAINT. you can just just about any type of paint in this barrel. So far I've used maybe 6-8 types of paint, they all shoot straight. Extremely accurate barrel with a special rifled feature that's hard to find (didn't find any other ones).
10 out of 10

32* Carbon Fiber, CP one peice barrel, 32* Night Stick
Spyder Imagine, 6 stage X chamber, CMI barrel, Physco Ballistics Drop Forward, 20oz CO2
Anything but Brass Eagle and Splash
Accurate, 20$, did i mention cheap, avalibilty
dosen't shoot through breaks that well, It can scratch easily
This is an awsome barrel for someone who is just getting into paintball. It is accurate and it looks good. It is also very cheap. The 16" is the best for accuracy and speed. When i got this barrel and put it on my Imagine it was an istant hit.
This is an awsome barrel for a beginer and is a good buy for anyone.
Java 12 oz. tank
PMI butt plate
14" CMI Tru-Flight Barrel
Everything else stock
tried it with zap sport series and rps big balls....both did pretty good (no breaks)
Doesn't break paint that much
Little louder than stock
I bought this barrel from ebay for 30 bucks. It was worth it. I went over to a friends and shot around cause he wanted to try out his new imagine. I tried out the barrel with some zaps and big balls and it worked great. It looks cool too. It isn't THAT loud but it is louder than stock. But in speedball, it wouldn't matter anyway. It doesn't break paint either.
I like this barrel a lot. It's only weakness is it's a little louder. So what? It is very accurate and looks cool. I would recomend it.
stock barrel for tippmann 98 custom
stock barrel for an enigma
freak set (can;t compare the two together)
tippmann 98 custom w/ 12inch smart parts progressive, expansion chamber, double trigger, soon to get a remote hose.
anything that is round
Accurate, distance is added
Loud,rough on the inside at first, looks
I got this barrel for $14 online and it is better than all the other barrels that i have used beside the freak. For the price i think that it is the best barrel out there for less than $30. The only bad thing is that it is extremely loud.
If i was just beginning to play paintball i would definitly get this barrel, but if you have a nice gun than don't get this gun because the looks of it suck, i would reccomend getting a nicer barrel like a freak or a pipe
I used this barrel and its awesome it shoots great and accurate and it has great distance. It works well on a electro and a semi auto. I wasnt sure if i should buy it but i did and turns out that its well worth the money for a 16' barrel. It is way better then the 3a 21' sniper barrel thats my opinion.
its well worth the money and if you are thinking about getting it GET IT thats my opinon
black icon e, halo tsa, truflight 14' barrel, 20oz pmi co2
any zap work fine with mine but ever now and then u get a strayer
DOESNOT break balls
did i say cheap
well when i first got the barell my new gun was not here (came the next day) so i wint to my friends house who has an e-99 and tried it on his and copared to his stock barell there was no comparsion AT ALL!
ok i dont know why people say that they break balls they dont ive chopped 3 balls so far in my gun and thats it but breaking in the barell i dont think so!
I say get it for the 9.50 i payed for it on ebay new so check it out if any thing if u dont like it go find a noob at ur local feild and sell it to him for 15 or make 5
I've had good results from Scorch (red Shell/ pink fill paint at wal-mart for $34 for 1500)
Also Viper venoms. Other than that i would sagest using medium/small bore paint.
shoots like crap if you chop
First time a tested this barrel out I was using Scorch paintballs shooting at an old tire. I was happy with its performance,It was shooting straiter and farther than my stock barrel.
The next day I went to a local feild and played the whole day with my new barrel using Scorch and some other paint called kick'n paintballs. As before the scorch was shooting very nicly out of my barrel, but the kick'n was chopping a good bit. I never relized why it was doing this until I took it home and noticed that the muzzle brake was alittle on the sharp side and that the kick'n paintballs were a big bore paint. These 2 things put together led to by barrel chopping. The sharp muzzle brake can be fixed by useing steal whole down it.
I realy liked this barrel becouse it shoots nicly whith affordable paint and also becouse its cheap ( I'm currently thinking about getting one for my A-5). All in all i would sugest this barrel to anyone looking for something better than a stock barrel. Im going to give it a 8 out of 10 (in my book thats a good raiting) becouse of the sharp muzzle brake.
