The new Shift kit is one of the lightest alloy barrel kits available today. It also uses an expansion of the highly successful MacDev porting for quiet operation. The kit includes an autococker threaded back, 14" tip, and 4 bores (0.685, 0.689, 0.693, 0.696). It comes with a MacDev swab and plastic spanner in a tough carry case.

Picked up a full shift kit with a Geo I bought, Have played with it twice now and its an amazing barrel. Covers a good range of ball sizes with the 4 included inserts.
I have not had any issues with it coming apart like I have read, I just put it together by hand and dont use the tool.

I actually prefer this barrel kit to my Shaft 4 kit, I will be using this more with my Ego 11 once I get it color matched.

Bought this used back in 09 and has been my primary barrel kit since. This is the stock barrel now on Clones (minus insert kit).

Pros- The inserts actually lock into place, unlike the freak. I have had my old freak kit slide back when it caught on the bolt.

Cons- For an insert style kit, you don't have much expandability like most other insert kit (cocker backs only). I found you cannot shoot through breaks at all with this barrel.

Probably one of the best barrel systems on the market, its design alone really impressed me, considering I have used almost every other barrel system on the market. The simple threading on the actual inserts alone keeps the inserts from moving and or spinning in the barrel. To go along with this feature Macdev also had to make the inserts much thicker and longer than say the Freaks system, making for a much more durable insert IMO. Its lightweight design is also something to note, I mean its no CF barrel, but it does come pretty close....

MacDev Shift Kit This is a great barrel kit. Very easy to change out inserts. Also inserts are longer still, rather than the small ones that companies are coming out with now.
