Barrel Newbie

Hi, I just got my first paintball gun and was wondering about barrels. I got an autococker and I was thinking about buying a Apex 2 barrel. Are the Apex 2 barrels any accurate when I'm not curving the balls? And what would be a good barrel for around $50. Thanks

Stock apex barrel isn't so great, look for a barrel that you can put the apex tip on. Lapco and j&j make them for around that price, although neither is great for having the small bore required on a cocker, I think the j&j is .685 and the lapcos are around thre or bigger. J&j also makes an apex adapter, which will work on other barrels. There's also a tape mod for putting the apex on most barrels.

So many options with cocker threaded barrels! I personally wouldn't bother with an apex... they're hard to chrono, really loud too. For under $50, I'd pick up a 1 piece CP, or a lurker barrel.

Get 2 CP barrels for $60 since you have a cocker you want a small bore to prevent roll outs. Any idea what the paint size is at your field?

I'd start with a .685 bore and if you need something smaller pick another one up, say .680 or something
