I just bought a new CP Advantage barrel 5 minutes ago (16" .685 dust black) so i have yet to try that out, but the CP Classic barrels are accurate and very quiet. I went with the Advantage barrel because the tip is flat which i like (opposed to the grooves) and it SHOULD be lighter and quieter (because of more porting). only barrel that iv'e ever heard quieter than a 16" cp classic was a 16" carbon fiber stiffi.
You may just lack the experience or knowledge, but Lapco internal finishes are known to be the best in the industry.
