Billet machined from solid 6061-T6 Aircraft Grade Aluminum
Gun-drilled and micro-honed to exact sizes leaving a near mirror finish
So straight that they even clean faster and easier
A highly mico polished interior
Exact replica of the M16/M4 muzzle break
1 inch diameter barrel
Flat Tactical No Glare Finish
The OPSGEAR Operator Barrel is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
PMI stingers, not much experience with anything else
Tactical looking barrel
Intimidating and powerful if used right
Not too great for cqb
Does add bulk to gun
I've had this barrel for a few months now, and its accurate, it does very well for the range it covers. Suprisingly, does intimidate a few other guys with the barrel. The flat black and muzzle break look similar to the M4/16 style break, but with its own style. I haven't had a break in it except if i use the crappy walmart brand paint, otherwise if you spend more you get more. Very nice grouping, haven't seen much like it in a while, put this and a red dot and you'll have some more notches on your belt.
If you want something that is tactical and nothing too fancy, this is yours, but like the saying goes, if you can find a better barrel, then buy it

Any smaller bore balls. Mine are Guerrilla field balls from www.gizmos.com I think they are their own brand.
Very smooth bore
None. This thing rocks!
I have recently bought this barrel and have only run about 500 balls through it.
But already i can tell this is the best buy for my gun.
The accuracy is perfect, cant say any thing against it.
Its pretty loud, which I like cos it sounds cool. I don't really think that you could possibly get a barrel that is so quiet that you cant tell where the person is so I think it doesn't really make a difference.
The bore smoothness and size is perfect for my paintballs.
I strongly recomend this barrel to any tippmann user cos it looks great on them and it really is a quality barrel.
