The Dye Aluminum paintball barrel reviewed here is a one-piece that comes in 10", 12", and 14" for most guns.


Summary: The Aluminum is accurate, very quiet, doesn't break balls, very light, and durable. It is not self-cleaning, and mixed opinions about ease of cleaning. A decent barrel, but other barrels were recommended as better.


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

From 25 of 68 reviews:


• This Dye barrel is accurate, easily as accurate as the Dye Boomstick but at a fraction of the weight.

• The Aluminum is very quiet.

• This Dye barrel Doesn't breaks balls.

• The Aluminum is very light and durable.

• $90


• This Dye barrel is not self cleaning. You will need to squeegee if you break a ball. One player thought it self-cleaned pretty fast, but still recommended using a squeegee to shoot like new. Another player thought that if there was paint in the barrel it would cause more breaks.

• The finish scratches easily, but then it is aluminum.

• The Aluminum is a gas hog. The over-porting to make it really quiet consumes more gas; it's a tradeoff.


• One player thought this Dye is a good barrel for recreational play but not tournament play. Another thought it on a par with the Dye Boomstick, but did not recommended you buy it. Another rated it a good beginner/starter barrel and better than stock, but he (and another player) suggested the Dye Ultralite as a better choice. What recommended this barrel was that it was cheaper.

• Some thought the Aluminum was easy to clean, but one didn't. The porting is hard to clean; flush with water at the end of the day.

• There were several comments that this barrel has been discontinued.

• Suggested paintballs: PMI Premium, RPS Marballizer, DraXxus Blaze.

• One player suggested using Pro-Team Products Barrel Treatment; it is like car wax that makes the barrel smooth inside.

• Players liked the looks of this barrel.
