  I’m not too familiar with the White Wolf Airsmithing Justice Barrel, but of what I hear it is an excellent alternative to the Smart Parts barrels when using freak inserts.

Viewloader VL Barrel

viewloader-vl-barrel.jpg

I’m not too fond of the Viewloader VL Barrel. It has some qualities worth mentioning, but overall I suggest you look for something else. It somewhat nice looking, but of course that’s a matter of personal taste. Some people hate the shiny silver part as it gives out your position easily. The performance level is […]

Tippmann Sniper Barrel

tippmann-sniper-barrel.JPG

The Tippmann Sniper Barrel – I can’t really call it a sniper barrel since it is only 12in long, but hey that’s its name. It’s one of the cheaper Tippmann products, but as usual cheaper means not very good. I’m really not impresses with this thing. You’ll read all kind of praises about it, but […]

Yet another barrel I’m not too familiar with, but let’s give it a chance shall we. The thing goes at a price in the low end of the chart and unfortunately I can’t say its performance level is any higher. To make that clearer – the barrel costs $35 and performs just like a barrel […]

Smart Parts Teardrop Barrels

What can I say about the Teardrop. Not that it’s bad, but it’s not really the greatest barrel you can end up with. There are many other low end barrel you can get that will perform and cause less problems that this one. It’s one nice looking barrel though and it has its good sides. […]

Smart Parts Tactical Barrel

Smart Parts Tactical barrel is not for everyone. Speedball players can stop reading right about now.
