Who makes them? A few companies makes short barrels, and many times they are very accurate. They are mainly for being compact when you are not playing airball.

Speedball with giant balloons as bunkers. Longer barrels are better for airball because you can manipulate the bunkers easily, unlike when your bunkers are composed of wood or other hard materials, and a longer barrel would just get in your way.

5" barrels are tight!!! Hahah.......... my cousin has one.....and man "they", not my cousin, say that only the first 5" inches on a barrel matter for accuracy... and blah blah....... you kno ......thats why most inserts are like 5 " ........... plus with a smaller barrel you get less barrel hits.....

Shorter and longer barrels will not really make your gun more accurate. Accuracy is a combination of proper bore size to paint size and player ability. If you're shooting the wrong size paint through the wrong size bore, no barrel length will give you an accurate shot.

Also, playing with oblong Walmart paint will also decrease your accuracy. You want to shoot with consistent sized fresh paintballs.

^^^^ he forgot to mention pressure and valve opening consistency. its a relatively major factor. umm i have a played with jsut he back half of my AA before and it wasnt much different. the sounds was like a pop too but besides that theres not much difference. if u have an extra stock lying around cut it up and throw it on. dont forget to remove ne burs on it
