It’s long enough for the back to fit comfortably in my shoulder and it still shoots pretty well. The barrel is polished aluminum bored to .71 and .75 for the freak inserts. I’ve shot the barrel on both my ULE Mag and BL Closer and it works just as well as my freak sets. The down side is the board is limited to11 rps. and the hopper is in my face. Needs a q-loader.
