Best BT Tm-15 after market barrel?

Am looking to get a new barrel for my BT TM-15. I have already upgrade RF module and the Rip Clip and absolutely LOVE my setup.
However, I'm looking for a but more accuracy. I have obviously seen improvement by using better paint but I am curious about after market barrels.
I am starting to understand the "bore" system. I.e sizing your barrel to the paint. Which has lead me to either a J&J ceramic barrel or a Custom Products Tactical barrel. I'm okay with buying 2 or three one piece barrels I just want opinions as to who's the best. OR, who has found the best.
Any ideas, comments, suggestions.

Many thanks.

J&J and CP barrels are both great but from what I've read the Flasc barrels seem to be the top picks for BT TM's. Check them out.

Flasc SQB barrels (when he has them in stock) are great to reduce sound and improve accuracy. I have to say though that I've been using my Lucky 15 kit recently and really like them as well. They're single piece barrels with multiple bores sizes included so you can adjust to the paint you're using. I got mine off PBN for under $100 and that had 3 different bore barrels in it.

I have the CP dynasty barrels with my TM 15 and I love it, shoot Premium through with 12 in spreads at 20-30 ft. It increases sound a little which makes the Invert Halo Too register the sound a little bit better with a little less sensitive setting!

Check out the eigenbarrel.


If you want more control over the bores, look at finding a full Powerlyte Scepter kit or a Thin Air Sports GnB kit.

(close the space, idk why the site would censor it)
check out the GnB kit

Those three are the greatest known to man. Period.

Incredible bore lengths, immaculate quality and condition, and with some serious-*** porting. None of the straight hole type either. The angled porting keeps the friction, turbulence and sound way down.

I recently installed a 12" Deadlywinds Fibur barrel on my BT-4 and it awesome! Uses the Freak inserts. With the rip clip and egrip, it's fast and very accurate!

I would have to say the Flasc SQB would be my choice as Barrel upgrade for the TM-15, only issue is they generally are out of stock half the time so you have to keep your eyes out pretty often for when he restocks.

I haven't personally tried or tested any of the other suggestions so I couldn't offer a proper opinion.

The TechT I fit is awesome as well as the Furious tactical barrel that is made a little heavier to be able to mount items on. Every player that has switched to the Furious at CRU has increased their velocity from their prior barrel and therefore gained some efficiency as well.

Lapco bigshot .687

With the deep shroud on the TM's, I didnt wanna mess with two piece barrels or sizing kits, so I went with a smaller bore size (.687) bigshot barrel.

If the paint I buy is bigger than .687, i just use the stock barrel. This time of year, most paint is smaller, so i've been able to use the lapco most of this season.

I have tried JJ, Deadlywind, Flasc, Stiffis, and Lapco barrels over the last two years and Lately I seam to be using my Lapco BigShot Assualt barrels the most. When I use my Empire Axe I will use my iFit kit with the Lapco barrel. A excellent combo.

I personally like flasc barrels there awesome can be super quite with the right, porting and can be built to any length you want plus if you dont like quite just throw a dishka on it make yourself known
