Short paint sizer
easy to get stuck by an autococker's front block
The strengths and weaknesses speak for themselves. I think that It could work better for paint sizing if it were longer, but I am sure a bunch of people will disagree, other kits like the stiffi switch and OTP, etc only bore size for about an anich and a half and get good results.
It is nice that it is short, but it makes it hard to unscrew. also it can be difficult to remove from an autococker without scratiching it if it gets stuck by the front block. I always use an oring so that I can take it off.
Basically it's well made for going down a bore size, but you obviously cant turn your .689 barrel into a .691 on a rainy day without getting problems...
Mine is a .685 and when it fits paint it works well with a SP teardrop or my dye ultralite. I mostly put this on guns I loan out when My freak kits are being used on other guns. I imagine you would get good results with any decent barrel. However, you can get a used freak kit with 8 sizes and interchangeable tips and backs for $80 in online auctions, which would only buy you about 4 sizes here. Don't think you need the sizes, well you can get away with less, but I have found that I have used each of the freak sizes from .691 to .679 and it definitely makes a difference, so variety is better. A lot of my favorite paints were around .679 to .682, so any thing that doesn't go that small did not give me as much performance. I don't think you can buy these that small, but getting smaller than stock helps with most decent paint even if it is not a perfect fit.
If you only want 3 sizes to prevent rollouts, or so you can keep your cool looking stock barrel or stiffi or whatever fixed bore barrel you want to keep (like my kaner) then these are nice.
A full kit is cheaper than a full set of these, but if you get the smallest and something medium to go with a .689 barrel, you will cover most paint close enough. You will notice some improvement.

Fits Snugly, Good finish, Stops balls from rolling down barrel. cheaper that barrel kit.
Can be hard to find
The first day I played with field paint with my focker I had all sorts of problems with balls double feeding, rolling down the barrel, chopping ( could be my fault on that ) so I looked into possible fixes for this problem. I found a breech (single, not the whole kit) sizer on ebay for 20$ including shipping, So far it has worked flawlessly. It stopped all balls from double feeding or rolling down the barrel, and I didn't have to spend 100$+ on a barrel kit. It doesn't seem to affect accuracy at all, and the marker seems to be running a little bit quiter.
I would defenetly reccomned this to anyone who is looking for a cheap/ effective fix for balls rolling down the barrel of your autococker. 10/10
