Things to ask yourself: Do I want a single piece or a two-piece, or a kit?

If you don't already know, go ask the regulars at your field what the paint is normally sizing at. This will give you a better idea what you should look for.

If you're looking for a basic barrel upgrade, look into getting a one piece CP barrel. They're fairly cheap (20$-40$) and will last a lifetime.

If you're looking for something a little more expensive, the Empire carbon fiber Nightstick's are great. They look pretty cool too. (55$)

However, if you want to go all out with your barrel, like me, look into getting a Freak kit. I've been using one for about 6 months now and love it. The inserts are easy change out and never rust or break and it does wonders to your accuracy. (150$)

totally agree, I love my freak kit, but I really want to try one of those carbon fibre nightsticks or something similar. sly cf ones look nice too. though i hear good things about the lurker barrels too.

I guess when it comes down to it you can't really go wrong with an aftermarket barrel from a good 'name', i think it really comes down to personal preference.

first things first, all barrels will be the same on ANY gun. no one barrel works better on an invert mini then on an ego11. a barrel is a barrel. if you already have an autococker threaded barrel that you really like, then use it on your mini.

all the recommendations people are giving are good options. but it's something you need to ask yourself, not other people. get a barrel that you think is awesome, because at the end of the day they all do the exact same thing. you just have to decide what bore size you want, length, and build material.

I'm a big fan of the one piece now. I haven't run across any paint that won't fit nicely through a .685. I've found I never need anything bigger. I think that a one piece that is around .685 is about all you need. If you end up underboring or overboring a little, it likely won't matter.

So I would say CP or Eigenbarrel one piece around .685.

In the rare occasion that you find some bigger bore paint, just switch back to the stock barrel, but I think that won't be very often.

WRONG, accuracy depends on paint, you don't need a new barrel, but if you really feel the need to upgrade, just get the lurker barrel, It's cheap and effective.

Agreed. I've never had an issue with my .685 Lurker. I did order the .678 because some is actually small for that barrel.

Good barrels, efficient and quiet. That's all I look for in a barrel.

I use my Lurker .678 about 90% of the time since tourney and practice paint seem to be really small these days. Otherwise I go to a CP .685 if paint is bigger. I run my Axe at about 130psi (thanks to eigenbolt and 7ms dwell and underboring) and people have commented thai it sounds like my marker has a silencer. Maybe I'll make a vid ...

If i just had 1 barrel, i think I'd go with a .685 or .684 though. Something in that range

I was running the exact same settings for a while. EXTREMELY quiet, like whisper quiet. Gulped air like a fat kid at a smorgasbord though.

Hah, ya it's true. Its very quiet, very gentle on paint, but not very efficient. Buffet ---> feeding frenzy. On a 45/45 tank I still get 7 pods or so, so its good for a whole game
