I second this. The stock barrel is fine, and as you will read over and over again everywhere, the most important factor of accuracy is paint. Changing your barrel will not make the marker any more accurate shooting the same paint. If you have a barrel kit and match the bore it will be more efficient, but not more accurate. A QEV will make a big difference on efficiency and is the cheapest upgrade you can get for the marker. Here is what I have bought (in this order):
1. QEV (@$25)
2. Violent Trigger (@35)
3. DeadlyWind Hollow Point Bolt (@50)
4. Smart Parts charger kit (Charger and 2 9V Li Ion batteries @$50)
I also have a freak kit, but I bought this before I bought the eXTCy, and I use it to maximize efficiency, but it does nothing for accuracy, and additionally with the hollow point bolt I can use my small inserts anyway.
