If your looking for a barrel under $35 that shoots just as good as $80 to $90 barrels, then the Smart Parts Progressive barrel is just the barrel you have been looking for. I've used my 16" for about 6 months now and I never regret buying it. This barrel is so quiet, the only sound you hear when you shoot it is the movement of the bolt in your marker. Its accuracy is unmatched by barrels this cheap and is equal to the most expensive one piece barrel. I've tested its so called "3 foot" shot spread and have found that anything under 100ft will hit within a 1ft radius. I recommend this barrel to anyone who's looking for that first upgrade that REALLY improves your stock marker and who doesn't have that $60-$120 dollars just lying around the house.

*quick addition... the results above were achieved by setting the velocity around 260fps.

I have the 14" version and it's good also but a little less acruate. I tested it against a flat line last night and although the flat line was a lot better, mine didn't do as bad as I thought. (my hits were spaced maybe to 12" at 100 feet and had dropped while the flat line was 4 to 5" and stayed on line)

You may have just talked me into a 16" version. :)

lol glad I could help, but keep in mind the 16" won't add distance. Otherwise your 14" seems to produce close to the same results.

P.S. Kudos on the flatline, sounds like you have it tweeked perfectly. :D

It was one of my sons friends guns. He's saved his money and finally got it.

He asked me to come with them and help adjust it when we got home from the store. (I had to go pick up an exchanged remote and my son needed a hopper so he went with us)

It shot that way the first time. I couldn't believe it, lol.
