Rifeling and carbon fiber are the two biggest waste in paintball barrels. You`ll never notice how light your barrel is untill it gets too light and you get barrel rise. There is a lot of hype around Hammerhead barrels because it has rifleing. This is the same thing you see in the barrel of real guns. The purpose is to spin a bullet to make it more accurate. In paintball this doesn`t work because paintballs don`t have grooves like real bullets. Why is this barrel a bad choice? Because your paying for the rifeling that doesn`t do anything. I would consider a a Dye UL barrel, Disruptive, or Furious Lotus.

Bullets don't have grooves. Bullets are smooth. They have rifling marks after they are fired, because the steel of the lands is harder than the the lead, copper or brass jackets and cuts them into the bullet as it travels down the barrel.

The big thing about this barrel for me is the fact that is brass lined. Brass barrels are extremely accurate, though heavy.

For those who don't have these items to compare, I've taken a picture to illustrate the point. I apologies if they aren't as clear as the naked eye, but I did my best.

This is a true rifling on a pistol where you can see the raised portion, or positive deflection of material that makes the grooves, on the lip of the barrel.
If you ran your finger nail on the inside your finger nail would catch on the positive/up-ward deflection of material (aka peak).





This is a picture of a HH goldmember where from the "rifling" of the barrel is made by removing material. It's harder to see from the picture, but if you ran your fingernail along the inside you could feel that it catches on the channels created by the removal of material from the barrels cylinder during manufacturing. The milled away channels are the darker tone channels, while the channels that have horizontal brush/milling marks are the base level material. Your finger nail catches on the junction of the two channels (peak & valley) where material was removed from the neighboring channel. Another way to say is that these channels are created because material was removed (aka valley), while a rifle/pistol has riffling because their is a raised portion of material that create the barrel twists. I hope this makes sense, if not....sorry I tried.





I looked on HH website to see if they stated how they machined their barrels, but wasn't able to see where they mention how they create the twists of the barrel.

These theories can be debated, which they have extensively on other threads, but for me the proof is in the pudding. I have several HH barrels and love them. They shoot great, but do take a little adjusting of fps with the velocity to find the so called "sweet spot." My two cents is try one and see for yourself, I find that most of the negative or pessimistic views come from those who don't even own one.

I know. I was writing that fast.

i has a mofo, going to be getting a mofo gold. brass is known to be smoother than aluminum, and generally have a better velocity reading than aluminum barrels. also, i don't know for sure or not if the rifling does help, but it is probably my most accurate barrel i have, other than maybe my eigenbarrel. it is one of those barrels that if i had a choice between every barrel out there, i may just pick it up and use it above all others.



this is coming from a person whom has used almsot every barrel out there.

I use a custom 10" MOFO Gold with Bang Stikk tip with an iFit system on the back. Easy to change bores and 9 choices versus 5. It was 149 shipped. It shoots extremely accurate. So much so that the opposing team members come up and ask what I am using for it is so accurate.
