I was never overly impressed with the performance. The rifling has been shown by multiple different people to not have any effect on paintballs.

The reverse porting does help with giving away your position as it does help redirect the sound at you instead of out the barrel. That said, you'd have more success getting a quieter marker than relying on reverse porting.

I'd say for an inexpensive entry level, definitely pass on the hammerheads. Get a nice single piece J&J/CP for $30, and go play. Don't put more money into a low end than absolutely necessary.
