View Full Version : Should I get a Freak??

01-11-2006, 04:19 AM
OK all here is my deal...

I have a CP 2 piece barrel kit with 3 backs and 12",14" and 16" fronts. When I got my CP kit the new Freak back was not out and I did not really like the old one.

Should I get the "New" Freak kit.

Here is what I like about it:
One kit 8 bores
If I get a new marker I only need a new back
good looks

And what I have heard that I don't like:
hard to clean if you get a break (have to take it apart)
the light weight aluminum kit is very fragile and if you get a ding in your bore it is done...

I do shoot all different types of paint. No Wal-Mart cheap stuff, but what ever is either on sale at the proshop or cold weather paint.

OK so what do you all think, please give me advise......

I like my Freak kit. My wife ordered an Angel back for me, so essentially, now I have two kits.

Concerns I've heard is that the bore "rotates" in the barrel - which is incorrect. I insert the bore so the size is showing in one of the back holes, and it never moves from that spot. Dings? Don't drop them and you'll be fine! I've never dropped mine. Paint breaks? Put the All American on the front and cleaning is a breeze.

I've heard the CP kit is good as well. If it works for you, I wouldn't switch. A kit is good, but not that much different from other kits. Just my opinion, but I'd save the money for something else since you already have a kit unless you're like me and just want to spend money!

I wouldn't buy it if you already have a good barrel kit. All those insert's aren't really worth it unless you are using a closed bolt marker or a pump. Just stick with your small, medium & large barrel kit and you will be fine and just invest in something else for your marker imo!
