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 it’s really not too much different from an ordinary $35 barrel – it shoots accurate, but that’s pretty much it. It’s not very quiet; it’s relatively hard to clean; you get one length and one bore size and that’s it. I don’t know why people put it over some of the other similarly prices barrels – it’s just the same. The only reason to buy it is if you can’t afford to get something pricier and better. Even then I don’t recommend it over the others. It’s a matter of personal preference whether you’ll get the Tippmann Sniper or any other $35 barrel. If you like it – go for it, just don’t expect it to be brilliant or better than the others, you’ll be disappointed. in the end here’s the manufacturer’s description about it for those who are interested:
“The GTA 12″ sniper barrel is shorter for those who like to keep their gun length shorter. It is used for extreme accuracy, and is honed smooth to ensure effortless ball travel and increase consistancy between shots.”
