Post Report : My experience with the Lurker Eigenbarrel

Hey guys, Just wanted to give a bit of info about my recent purchase of a .678 Lurker Eigenbarrel!

Now im not quite sure of a few numbers but Ill do my best.

I shoot a DPG4 with the TechT L7 bolt, with the dwell at 7ms, maintaining consistent shots at 285 FPS. Now im not quite sure what the pressure is set to coming out of the reg. After adding the Lurker and shooting Karnage Tear paint (pretty decent stuff honestly), RPS X-Ball, and some DXS my buddy had left over, The same regulator setting propelled the balls too 355 FPS pretty consistently! I was very suprised by that. I had to nearly bottom out the reg screw to get it down low enough to hit 285. With the addition of the barrel, on a 4k fill in my 68/45, i am now able to make it through an entire case without needing a fill! I cant say much for "accuracy" but the shots are more consistent now and I seem to be able to manage a tighter grouping, if you will. Plus, it is MUCH lighter than the stock barrel and an inch longer! Ive shot about 6 cases worth of paint through it, thus far, and have not had a single break, which I was a little worried about with the underbore and what not. But, my fears have been put to rest.

All in all, for $41.50 shipped to my door, this has got to be the best barrel ive invested in thus far! I love good one piece barrels and this is my top pick right now!

Thanks for reading yall!
Keep ballin!

Oh no, thank YOU! After the wonderful few days of play, my buddy just bought your Barrel, Mini Bolt and Lube combo yesterday! Its a spankin deal! Cant wait to see how the new bolt works in his Mini. You guys definitely make a top notch product at unbeatable prices.

I wish I could tell you! I THINK the stock G4 barrel is pretty big, like .69. There was definitely an instant difference between the barrels. Its very quite as well. I play back and people down field cant hear my gun shooting at them anymore. Its totally drowned out by the roar of the poppets on the rest of my team.

I too must give mad props to the Eigenbarrel! DP FX with NDZ bolt & LAW ram and I've not had a break up barrel and my shot counter is around 15,000! Only breaks have been at the tip from dirt/debris!

I have 3 other barrels that are .686, .689, & .691 and I really haven't used them in a long time.

Just played a tourney yesterday and ended up leaving with more paint than I came with so I will be doing a FPS test with all my upgrades (doing individual fps increases and combined).

I love having the lurker barrel on my S6! The paint up here had gotten so small that rollouts were becoming such a problem that playing pump was almost undoable last season.
