I got this barrel kit from ans for about 130. I use it on my g6r and it is great. Very accurate. Im a big fan of barrel kits for the ability to match paint sizes. Definitely worth the money to get a barrel kit, even if it is on the steep side.

This barrel kit has been around for years and after you try one you can tell why, it's the best! This is something I wanted to get for my marker when I was in high school but then I stopped playing. Now that I'm back into and have disposable income this is the first upgrade I bought for my marker.

Well, I got this barrel kit with my Nasty NXT for free, so this review will be as unbiased as possible.

So lets start out with the good.

Goods
-Shoots straight

-Multiple backs to match paint-to-bore size

-Lots of options (colors, sizes, etc.)

-Pretty adamant (this barrel will not break or chip, unless it's intentional)

Bad
-If paint is chopped, your balls will fly all over the place, unless the barrel is cleaned to a perfection

-Heavy (It's up to you if this is bad or not, it could reduce the barrel raising at high ROF's if you have a light marker)


Overall, it's not a bad barrel, it shoots straight, kind of heavy, isn't too expensive, but there are definitely better options than it. I can't recommend this barrel to you, unless your a smart parts fan, or have a shocker and want it to match with your marker. Other than that, you might as well get a dye UL or something.

I have owned the freak barrel system for well over 5 years now, I must say, I am very impressed to own such a barrel system for as long as I have. The barrel system has lasted longer than most of my guns, which is very surprising.
It shoots very accurate and I love the fact that you can interchange to any ball size of your choice depending on the size of the paint.

I would recommend this system to anyone who wants to lay paint in a very accurate manor.

Smart Parts Freak Barrel Kit I love my freak kit. It can fit any marker I own with just the purchase of the back in the right threads. Have a large variety of inserts on hand to match to any paint size the field may have.

I've owned many Freak barrels and insert kits over the last 10 years. I think it would be impossible for anyone to play that long and never at least try out a Freak barrel kit. Smart Parts died but they couldn't kill the Freak. Its design has been copied many times and will be copied many more times.

My only problem is the look. I'm not a fan of either the AA or Freak tips and the backs only came in dense black and SS unless you bought a brand new Impulse. The one I currently keep in my gearbag is one of the originals with each letter of the word "Freak" drilled into the side - it's hideous but has earned its commendations proudly through the course of my career. /Salute

Smart Parts Freak Barrel Kit The freak kit is your basic upgrade to any gun. Reliable barrels, three pieces, easy to clean. Good investment.

picked this up from a buddy some years ago. Love the multiple bore choices to get a tighter fight. Changing the inserts is a breeze and love all the new color options available from GoG at ANSgear.com. It however is probably heavier than most barrels. Great product that will be around for a long time.
