These barrels have been produced by Freak from start to finish are 100% genuine factory parts, and have not been re-anodized!
With its ability to adapt to changing paint size and quality without requiring a gear bag loaded down with barrel backs, the Freak barrel system set the world standard for portability, performance and flexibility. In its latest generation with 8-inch control bores, the Freak XL barrel system is even better, delivering improved efficiency and consistency. Now the Freak ACP barrel fronts are taking on rough weather, mud and even paint fill.
Taking their name from All-Conditions Performance, the Freak ACP barrels combine the power of the Freak XL system with an all new barrel front designed to keep going through the worst field conditions. On the outside four rows of barrel porting help equalize air pressure in the barrel with the outside air for a smooth and quiet transition from acceleration to free flight. On the inside the Freak ACP sports an all new look. Sixteen rows of smoothly transitioned grooves and rails bring the benefits of straight rifling to the Freak XL.
Rather than spinning the paintball with a spiral rifling pattern, ACP straight rifling provides the same linear path as a traditional smooth barrel while being better equipped to cope with the barrel fouling that comes with rough weather. Once the paintball exits the Freak XL control bore, it literally rides on rails through the length of the barrel front. Dust, mud, paint fill or rain can literally be blown out of the way into the grooves of the ACP rifling, rather than wedging between the ball and barrel wall where they cause off axis spin and hook shots, or worse- binding and breaking the ball in the barrel. Field proven by some of the world's top players through their development cycle, ACP barrel fronts shoot cleaner, faster when the going gets rough. They put more paint on target in less time, which is the Freak XL's winning advantage.
