What paint are you using if you don't mind me asking. I have a 5 fin set but there are still some paints I have noticed don't work as well.

I have shot through a lot of barrels in my time, many of them claiming to be the best, and no one, and I repeat, NO ONE can make that claim like Hammerhead. This is hands down the most accurate barrel I have ever used. Using my A5, 20oz CO2, Marballizer paint, velocity at 275 fps, and my 12.5in Hammerhead I fired 10 shots from a set vice at 25, 35, 45, 55, and 65 yards. Until I set up at the 65 yard mark I had yet to miss the target, and at the 65 I missed once. WOW, 1 out of 50 at various ranges missed the target ( A police target dummy) Definitely impressed me.
When it is cold outside I would not even bother, paint would bust nearly every shot, however, now that it has warmed up I have not had a single bust. Hammerhead makes a claim that their barrel will clean itself out with three or four shots, this is bull, no barrel will clean itself with other paint, at least not well enough to maintain accurate performance.
A little heavy, but certainly lighter than a Werks and a little lighter than a boomstick of similar sizes.
Well, here is another claim that Hammerhead trumps up, 100-150 yards down field this barrel is very quiet, however this does not help me in actual fire fights.
Look and Feel:
Perfect, that is all I have to say…
Overall I would rate this barrel among the finest I have ever used, if not the finest. I am very pleased with the design and the craftsmanship as well as their customer service. I will recommend that you get at least the three fin system to better match any field paint, I went the cheap rout and have had to order a couple of different fins since….
