I was in the same boat. I was afraid to buy the Lilja due to price. I had already tried other barrels others recommended and I just wasn't happy with any of them. I bought the Lilja and have never been the same. My first ulti is the same Kidd trigger and Lilja barrel. I have not shot it alot but it is unbelievably accurate. The very first time I tried for a 4-zero target, I got 3-zeros and nearly the 4th. I have confidence in the gun and that is what is most important (and priceless). You will not regret it. PS. I now have 3 Liljas that all shoot lights out!
