For that price I am going to say no here. That is ridiculous. You could get a deadlywind for half that if you find the right deal. Brand new they are only 90. You could get a barrel kit for 90, which you basically do with the DW (freak inserts). Or for the price of the barrel you posted, you could easily shop around a bit.

That is insanely expensive for a barrel, the performance isn't worth the cost in this case. LIke Shadow_772 said, shop around, even if this barrel would fit the Apex2..it's not worth it.

I believe the barrel is made by Hammerhead. Yes it's expensive, but if indeed it's one made by Hammerhead.......then I would give my support. I read not to long ago that Tippmann was releasing a cf barrel for the phenom made by Hammerhead. I have three HH barrels and love them. One thing to keep in mind with HH barrels is that they use barrel specific sizing collars. If it was me, I would look directly at the various HH barrels they have to offer.

I have heard nothing but good things about Flasc paintball, and the price seems decent.

They have an Apex adapter tip available for their barrels here: http://www.flasc.com...icles/tips.html

There is also the Tape mod, and UMS used to make a adapter for many barrels if you can find one.

The flasc also allows you to change the tip depending on what you want (loudener, flash hider, apex etc etc).

Are the APEX2 barrels from empire's website compatible with the phenom?

Well X7 (and phenom) threads are the same as A5, which actually came from the Pro/Carbine so:

Quote

Available in 14″ and 18″ Lengths in Barrel Threads-BT-4/A-5, Autococker, and Model 9

That's a yes :]

The stocker on my old apex wasn't too great, but it was about the same length and quality of an A5 stock barrel.
