It's a great barrel that allows your to get the closest bore to paint match on the market. The barrel is decently priced and the inserts are cheap if you buy a few but can be pricey for a full kit. The looks are a bit..... odd. It's ok but for someone like me who wraps their thumb around the barrel the square ish back can feel odd.

Ive owned many different sets of freak barrels throughout my years of playing and they are still one of my favorite systems out there. I like having just 1 back with a bunch of different inserts to put in instead of having multiple barrel backs to change size. the only con with this system is if you do break paint it doesnt clear out as well as barrels that dont use the insert system. Not a huge deal but it is sort of a problem.

Smart Parts Freak Barrel Kit i bought these inserts for my luxe and one shocker. for the price you cant beat them. if you already have a freak barrel it is a wise investment to buy these.

Pros: Ease of use, Bore Range, Threading Availability
Cons: Initial Investment, Frustrating at Times
I love the freak barrel. I have had it for nearly 10 years now and there's a reason for that. I have one barrel now, every one of my guns uses my one freak kit in some way.

Pros:
The barrel is stupid simple: Inserts have sizes, change inserts as needed based on paint and weather conditions. The range of bore sizes means that any paint on any day can be used. Then, the fact that nearly every gun has had a back made for it means that every gun, on every day, with every paint becomes an accurate one.

Cons:
The initial investment can be a little daunting, with normal retail at about $150, it steers most people away. Also, I know I have caught myself cussing quietly while swapping my inserts for the third time after two games because I didn't bore correctly.

Conclusions:
If you need one barrel for all of your guns, but still want the benefits of a kit, this is it. As you acquire guns with different threads, just add on a back, and its good to go. Want the barrel to match two guns, add on a tip or two, everything else will work still. The barrel is as versatile as it is useful.

I have a black freak kit with an All American front to make a 8" long barrel. It's a great setup and accurate at 60 to 80' in distance. I took out snipers that were over 100' away with a barrage of shots from this setup. Accuracy by volume.

I bought this to pretty much compare to the Redz kit. I like the insert idea and the different colors were a huge plus when trying to find what you need. (unless you bought the stainless steel), but it holds up pretty well. A little pricey but now you can pick one up for 50-60 dollars. A great kit all around and you definetly won't be disappointed

As paint to bore matching has increased in importance, so has the need for barrel inserts. Smart Parts has made the best barrel kit in the business that has withstood the test of time.

You can pick these up cheaply now that they have been around for a while. They are great to have and can save you some frustration when it comes to ball breaks.
