I loved my lucky barrel while it lasted, it shot great for a long, long time with few if any barrel breaks. I'd rate it up there with any of my ultralites or even better due to the cheap price.

However, one day the thinly milled aluminum just snapped on me and that was the day I decided to head in a different direction with barrels. (go steel!)

Lucky Paintball Un1tech Barrel I've had several of these barrels for year and they've performed flawlessly. Only down fall is that because they were manufactured years ago, the norm bore sizes have changed considerably.

Great barrel for the price, one of the only good barrels you can get for this price point. Really like the boring system. They are set-up so that the back is only to match your gun threading and the front is actually the full length of the barrel giving it the quality of a one-piece barrel. Which means unlike other barrels you can have multiple bores that don't become obsolete if you switch guns to something with a different threading

Got this barrel as soon as it was available to the public because it was cheap and looked like a very intelligent design.
Of all the barrels I've shot on my PM6 none have performed as consistently well as the Un1tec.
It is SUPER lightweight for an all aluminum barrel and comes close to some CF barrels even.
If you can find them they are not expensive and they are simple and extremely versatile with their interchangeable threading.

I wont shoot anything else and I just ordered another bore.

Lucky FTW.

I bought my Lucky Un1tech for my BL Vice.

Wow, it's light and looks GREAT. That's the first things I noticed.
When I used my Vice with the Un1tech, I realized that the Vice was shooting VERY VERY quiet. It was also accurate.
I broke one ball in the barrel (not sure what caused it). The only bad thing I heard was that the Un1tech isn't that great as shooting through broken paint, but after I broke that one ball, I was still shooting as accurately.

I had a Dye UL Barrel and it's just as good, lighter and almost half the price

Cons:
I wanted a .687 and .691 insert but they don't have those sizes.

My favorite barrel in my opinion.

I bought a 3 bore 1 back kit at 06 world cup, and have been using this barrel ever since.

The design is very nice and makes the barrel very good at clearing chops and barrel breaks.

The only problem is that Lucky is now basically gone and these are getting hard to find.

All in all the barrel is very nice quality and shoots very well.

I HIGHLY suggest this if you can find it.

Picked up a couple backs & "fronts" when Lucky US still existed. Some of the greatest cheap barrels ever.

The design itself is revolutionary. Instead of a 2-piece that results in a seam in the barrel, just take a 1-piece barrel but give it interchangeable "sleeves" as backs. Crazy, since it becomes a kit with multiple fronts & essentially one back. Only reason i ended up with 2 backs is because it was cheaper to order the two pieces together - and i wanted a back that matched one of my guns (green back w/ black/green fade gun).

Very lightweight, which caused some durability concerns with some players but i haven't noticed any problems. Even dropped one of mine on my concrete garage floor & it just barely knicked the anno but didn't create a dent at all.

Accurate as hell. Ball on ball with the right paint/bore match (and good paint). Used it on a Gen E Trix, 2k5 Timmy & 06 Interceptor.

Sucks that Lucky US went under - i only needed one more bore to have a decent Un1tech kit.

I love my un1tech barrels. I bought a .693 and cocker back when they were on sale at lucky paintball, and it's been my go-to barrel ever since. I've also picked up a couple of more bores and an ion/nxt back.

The other bores are nice if I'm worried about efficiency, but the .693 works with any paint. I've used paint as small as .682 through it with no degradation in accuracy.

Un1tech's make any gun (yeah, even eTeks) quieter. Must be the porting pattern, I don't know, but it's quieter than anything else I've ever seen. I heartily recommend this system...it's the only barrel I like to use.
