Armson Stealth Paintball Barrel Review

(Click to Enlarge)

The Armson Stealth combines the same 6061 T-6 aircraft grade aluminum construction, and Polygon Progressive rifling as the Pro-Series, with the noise reduction of a ported barrel. They are imported from South Africa, where they are machined to exacting specs. External appearance varies by gun. Spyder and Tippmann Prolite/Carbine barrels do not have external grooves. Available for Spyders, Autococker, Angel, Model 98, Pro-Lite, Raptor, and Shocker. Available in silver and black.

Summary: The Stealth is very accurate due to rifling, quiet, and consistent, but not self cleaning, and uncertain ease of cleaning.

Reviews

When you read a barrel's reviews, patterns can be seen. The following points have been compiled from various Armson Stealth reviews.

From  25 of 205 reviews:

Strengths

• Most players thought this Armson barrel was extremely accurate, and paintballs flies straight due to rifling. A few thought it has average accuracy.

• The Stealth barrel is very quiet.

• This Armson barrel shoots a long range.

• The Stealth is very consistent.

• $80 - $100 depending on gun.

Weaknesses

• Not self cleaning; if you get paint in the barrel your shots will start to curve. You will need a squeegee. The paint gets in the rifles.

Comments

• There was controversy whether the rifling actually causes the paintball to spin. One argument was that only the shell spins but not the fill, and will soon stop; the response was that the fill is thick enough that it does spin, and not just the shell. Since the Tippmann Flatline barrel is known to increase ones range, this proves that the shell (and also fill) can actually spin. Players believed that the rifling on this Armson barrel did increase the accuracy.

• If the Stealth breaks paintballs, try other ones. Recommendations included RPS Marballizer, Diablo Formula 13, DraXxus Midnight, or other small bore paint.

• If you have a problem with this barrel, it could be due to the paint, or have your gun chronoed with the Armson on it.

• Don't buy a barrel for accuracy, then shoot cheap paint through it.

Some players thought the Stealth was easy to clean; pull your squeegee through and it's done. It's especially easy with a battle swab. Others thought the Stealth was tricky or hard to clean, until you get used to it. One player recommended that you run some water over the port holes fairly soon after a break.
