I got the 7 piece barrel kit, comes with 6 backs and one front. Together it is 14 inches. Backs are: .681, .683, .687, .690, .693, .696.

The case is very nice. It uses the same case as the 11 piece, with spaces available for the other 10, 12, 16, and 18 inch fronts, which are available to buy, in case you feel like getting different size fronts. Has good foaming on the top to protect the barrel.

Now, onto shooting. Paint used was RPS Marballizers with the .690 back.

Performance: Incredible. No breaks, shot straight as an arrow. From 30 feet I pulled a 5 inch group.

Overview: Great barrel kit. It is relatively cheaper than other barrel kits out there, I got mine used for $90, MSRP is $135 (I think).





10/10, BIATCH

Nice review T. A friend of mine might be getting the Twister, any experience with it?

No, nothing much. If he's looking at a one piece, tell him to look at the CP barrels.

You should have shown the test you did on it. We have an easier time seeing and believing than just someone talking about it and believing.

I have the 14" Twister on my 98C. It has full rifling and the effective length is almost 13". The only draw back is that you will need a battle swab because it will tear up any rubber squidge on the rifling. It is very accurate.

I would, but the paint is faded on the tree now. Sorry.

You'll have to take my word for it.

Actually, I still have some paint left, so I'll do another test when I go fill up on air again, and I'll get pics.
