Smart Parts Progressive Bought a 16in to replace my stock Tippmann 98c barrel. Accurate but a little heavy compared to someother barrels.

Appearance: Good looks for a cheap barrel. Definitely a signature Smart Parts design.

Performance: Worked well with my Ion for a number of years. After a while, I upgraded to a Freak.

Reliability: Never had too many issues. Was just a pain if my local field switched up paint and it didn't match the bore size well.

Value: Super cheap. Great barrel for the price.

Summary: Want to upgrade your stock barrel and are strapped for cash? Here you go!

Pros: Accurate and reliable in cleaning through breaks
Cons: Not the most attractive barrel
I have an old school progressive barrel and will not get rid of it. As stated above it's probably not the most attractive barrel but it gets the job done and without breaking the bank. The barrel if you can find the old school barrel is spiral ported with the teardrop design. With a good paint to bore match (.687) you'll be shooting a nice spread of about 3-5 inches at a distance of about 80 feet.

Pros: cheap
Cons: internal lip
I picked this barrel up for my 98 on the cheap and I have to say it's not bad, but it's nothing special either. It shoots decently straight, although one major problem I've been having is barrel breaks due to a lip on the inside of the barrel. All in all the CP and Proto one-pieces look like they shoot this barrel straight out of the water.
