Valken "Low Impact" barrels. Knock 120 fps off of a rental gun instantly?

Dig this new barrel system from Valken:

If I understand this correctly, these are barrels designed to be purposefully inefficient, dropping a gun's velocity by 100fps or more. This is apparently being offered as an alternative to adjusting/chronographing guns down to super-low velocities for rental groups of young players, which I wasn't even aware was a common practice. I suppose the idea is that a field owner would put one of these special barrels on a gun, assume it has dropped the velocity as advertised, and not re-chrono before issuing it to children.
