I have used other 14in barrels for the same price the stoch barrel from tippman.
Tippman 98 Custom
It has never chopped or broke a ball, use good paint! Improveds shooting.
Cleaning can be difficult if you don't have right tools.
This is a great barrel that for its price is well worth the deal. Got it for about 30 bux and and im still going strong and not thinking about changing. Good for beginners and doesn't curve or break balls. Also very good with the iron sights. adds some distance and is just overall great.
Diablo Mongoose II Reincarnation LCD
nothing ~ dont get the barrel
if you do have the barrel, don't waste money on $$ stuff
The accuracy is about 0.
Okay well this was the first barrel I bought. Bought it for a Spyder Esprit. It worsened the accuracy. I have the 14".. When I got my Mongoose 2 I thought that the performance (sp?) might improve; it did not.
In one game (speedball) I was in the back standup and could see someones pack sticking out. Mamby the surface area of 2-3 index cards was sticking out. I was about 30-40 feet away. I wasted about 80 paintballs in that direction, some of them hitting the snake way off to the right. I never hit the guy.
To make a long story short: THIS BARREL SUCKS! My stock shoots wayy better, and it is pretty inaccurate.
Now a plus is that I got the barrel new for under $20.00
Oh yeah, the ball breaks.. mamby 1 in 30 break. I was shooting with a gravity hopper, but i shoot slow in game.. i dont know why.
I just looked up at that picture, and my barrel looks NOTHING like the one up there, but I wouldn't trust anything PMI now, I guess I have the old model or something.
Don't get it... I don't have advice on what TO get, but I know that it is NOT this.

Tippmann Custom 98 black w/BT-Fixed sight rail, BT-Combat folding stock, PMI Razzor 14" silver barrel and Tasco 3-7x20mm hunting sight.
0.68 bore size
Solid, light, easy to clean and good porting.
Wrong sized O-ring. my barrel is silver (not great for camouflage)...
I like this barrel! It was my first aftermarket purchase and I don't regret it at all. Ok, it was maybe a little expensive for it's quality (I paid 75$CAN) but it does the job and it does it right. Very accurate (as much as a marker can anyway) and somewhat quieter than the stock Tippmann barrel. It doesn't overuse CO2 either, as I discovered. Longer barrels will suck out every once of CO2 in an instant, but a 14" barrel is just the right length for woodsplay. If, like me, you're the medium-to-close-range type of paintball player, you'll appreciate the fact that this PMI barrel is able to turn tight around corners while not getting you plain in sight of opponents. Longer barrels will get in the way anyway.
One thing I did dislike about my barrel was that, in an instant of overexcitment and joy, I bought the silver one. Damn, damn and damn! For you, woodsball newbies out there, silver FLASHES as soon as a light source runs unto it (like the sun or, during night play, a flashlight or even a laser). If you're unlucky, like me, either paint your barrel black using spray can paint or, for 0.39 $CAN at Canadian Tire, buy a soft foam isolant cylinder (like the ones used on the old BMX bikes) and cut it just short of the porting holes. You'll get much less glare doing this. Or just use some duck tape. I got one with wood design on it. Great for match up with my camo apparel.

The successful carrer of my good old Razzor as finally come to an end. I'll soon replace it with my new black Smart Parts Progressive 2k6 14" barrel. Long live SP!
As for a first aftermarket purchase, I recommand this barrel. Try getting something in-between 10" and 14" long. Longer barrel is a nuisance, IMO (no offense meant for the sniper-type in here) .

14" Pmi Razzor barrel
Tippmann Expanision Chamber
Tippmann Double Trigger
Pmi Over Drive Moterized hopper
Pmi Hard Knukled gloves
Pmi Thermal lense
32 degress black flame drop forward
Core 4+1 harness
Dye lock lid pods
Tippmann Scott goggles
any it shoots good with just about any paintballs
I like the barrel for woodsball not speed ball. its holes on the end of the barrel are in a spirel so it give to the ball spin like a rifle. the paintballs rarely break inside of the barrel and i noticed if they do get a battle swab not a squege.
I give it a 9 out of 10 because there are better barrels for 10 dollers more.
BE Avenger 3
*14" PMI Razzor Barrel
Viewloader Expansion Chamber
Custom Aluminum Double Trigger
Anything right now cause it doesnt chop.
But my suggestions are Draxxus Dusk or Hellfire, PMI Premium, or Diablo Formula 13.
But I usually use Zap Sport Series cause its cheap since im a Rec player most of the time.
-Fits most guns
not much but just keep it clean to not CHOP paintballs
PMI Razzor Barrel is worth buying because its cheap or affordable!
ANd it actually fit on my BE gun!!!
Its worth it if you're a beginner and intermediate!
IF you're going in a tournament, its good to use, maybe as a back up but if youre playing frontman, you are definitely gonna wanna buy thing!!!
It's very affordable when it comes to budgiting! And it is available in lots of places! Cheaper if you but it online!
THe PRICE IS THE BEST PART!!!
Good for Beginners and Intermediate. Probably decent for Speedball at tournys.

Buddy bought this barrell and was all excited (using on a PMI Pirranah). In the first two games he may have fired off 10 rounds total. Why?? Because the balls were breaking in the barrell constantly! It took 2 of us to get the barrell off. He put his stock barrel back on...NO BREAKS! So...same balls...different barrells...one breaks and one doesn't...you do the math. You know things are bad when ur stock Pirannah barrel is better than an "upgrade".
Stick with stock or save some more money for a better barrell.
Makes gun alot quieter
Kinda expensive but worth every penny!!!
A must have for any gun, so much better than any barrel i've used. Only thing I don't like is the holes at the end, but every barrel has that, i just clean it out with toothpicks! ! ! It;s amazingly light for its size!!! It makes any loud gun 50% quieter!!!
A definate must have!!! Get it Now!!! I Give it a Nine cuz it could look a lil better!
I just got this barrel for my VL Triad. It is an improvement over the stock barrel by a lot. This barrel made my gun a little quieter. I haven't had a break yet with the Scorch Paintballs.
This barrel is very accurate if you aim right. This barrel is good for the price overall
Overall this barrel is a good barrel and is cheap to buy.

stock prodigy barrel
orion 5 inch
eradicator stock barrel
dragunfire lcd 14" teardrop barrel, 12 volt revy, nitrogen
Scorch(worked realy well)
pretty accurate for the price
a little light
Dented easy on the ends
This barrel is really good for the price. A good quality barrel. it didnt seem was way to picky on paintballs, it didn't choppalot, and it was ok with cheap paint. i use scorch paintballs and they fly straight with this thing.i had it for a year. Sometimes it gave me problems but everything isn't perfect
Jjust don't try your luck on this barrel. Its not worth it.

Love it, got it cheap, great upgrade for the Fish, quite's the gun shoots straight and adds distance. I play woods and woud reccomend this to anyone looking for a good cheap barrel that will shoot crappy field paint accuratly. I have broken a ball in this barel before, it doenst happen often but if you just shoot the gun 4 or 5 times, it pretty much cleans itself out, though a squeege helps ALOT with cleaning it. I actually got mine for $20 on sale on-line, so if you look hard you 'll find a good deal (this barrel is everywhere)
Buy it and laugh at all the people who spent WAY more on barrels that might not be as good as this one
