Opsgear M4 Barrels Anyone tried them?

Yeah. I've handled the M4 16 inch on my friends 98. The only complaint I've heard so far, is that on cold weather they tend to really chop, and freeze up quickly. Other then that, they're fairly decent, and look really nice with almost any mod they have.

Barrels do not cause Ball Chops
1. What causes Ball Chops
Old Paintballs were used and have slightly swelled up, thus preventing a ball to Free Fall into the Breech after each Cycle of the Bolt.
Firing faster than what the Hopper can feed.
An obstruction in the Feed Neck of the Hopper.
2. If the Paintballs that are coming out that looks like they were chopped, thats called a Barrel Break, which is caused by
Velocity Set too high.
A small piece of metal somewhere along inside the Barrel Walls that can rip open a Paintball when propelled.
Balls used are bigger than the Bore Size of the Barrel.
As to the question why a Barrel would Freeze Up in the Winter, using Co2 and Firing Fast is the cause.
