JJ Ceramics Barrel Review Rate Topic: ***** 1 Votes

Alright I have been using a 14" JJ Ceramics barrel for a few months now and I have decided that it's time to do a review because I always see barrel question threads. As far as I am concerned it is the best barrel I have ever used and it is one of the best paintball related investments that I have ever made. It is a great product. I have put about 6 different types of paint through this bad boy and it shot them all accuratley as can be. Even stale and dimpled paint shot great out of this barrel. I am not sure of the exact bore sizing of the barrel but I have only had about 5 paint breaks in the barrel during months of usage. I have recently used it with reballs and you guesed it, on point. It shoots between 110 and 130 feet. I have used it at all different FPS's and no matter what it was set at it hit it's mark. From 1 BPS all the way up to 15 BPS it shot great. I have used it with CO2 and with HPA and the performance did not differ much. The ceramic coating on the barrel scratches VERY easily but it does not reflect the sun whatsoever. For just under 40 bucks I would suggest that you go for it. It is a choice that you will not regret later. I have also tried a 12" and that was just as accurate as my 14". I give it a 9.8/10 and the only reason it is not a 10 is because of the easy scratch issue. I will never get rid of this barrel. It is accurate enough for a sniper and it looks great too. I hope this helps to all of you that are searching for a new barrel.

C series barrels are better quality but more expensive. Another reason they are more expensive is just because of they are made of carbon fiber, and that does nothing but lighten it up.

You can put an Apex on a J&J, yes. Better than Brass? No.

First of all, you paid $70 for a jj ceramic barrel?!?!?!

My 16 inch is nice but I like my 14 bigshot more. I got more breaks in my jj than my lapco. When I got breaks in my jj, It became no use. Sure, it can clean the inside but it can't clean the porting itself. Paint becomes unevenly distributed in the porting which makes your balls curve all over the place, with more effect than an apex. I also got them both new at the same low price of $35

THE INVISI-SIG!
I have no sig, because I am cool like that.

C series barrels are better quality but more expensive. Another reason they are more expensive is just because of they are made of carbon fiber, and that does nothing but lighten it up.

I have used smart parts,jj's,brass,c-series,and regular stiffi's. The smart parts was the worst of them all. I would have to say that the brass and jj are about the same in quality. But the regular stiffi was the best barrel i have ever used! although it was 110$ i still wouldn't trade it for anything. But thats my opinion. My squads know as the ghosts.We have been playin togethet for 6 years. im the sniper and either single shot or if i have to unload the stiffi never breaks any of my PREMIUM paint. at first the barrel was picky on paint but i finally found the right paint.So to get to my point the c-series and stiffi's are better than the jj's.................................in my opinion.

Honestly i've used a smart parts barrel and a C-series, the c-series was great and relly light, plus it looked good with the tips and the smart parts was ok but a lil bit heavier. Although...i love battle swabs which you can't use with c-series.

I have a J&J 16" Ceramic, I use it on my X7, its pretty damn accurate, however, I have a serious problem.
MY GUN DON'T SHOOT STRAIGHT!
It shoots to the left! I've tried reseting the barrel lug, pushing the barrel slightly to the right. I aim down the gun crooked to shoot accurately! What the hell is happening! I run CO2 which could be part of the problem, the lug could be offset in the construction (possibly?), and the crappy stock powertube, which fell apart (but i put it back together), and stock bolt (shredding its skin; piece of crap) could be a part of the problem! By the way, the gun shoots the same offset with the stock barrel as with the J&J, but I have noticed, minus the offset, that the J&J is a lot more accurate, and I paid about $40 for it.

HELP ME! PM ME PLEASE!

Its the shooter not the gun.
