Stock barrel is fine, a little large for local paint, but even so I don't notice any issues because of that.
Only advice, clean and lube it properly and shoot it lots. Seriously all you need to do with an Ego is take it out use it and keep it maintained (and for some that is even not so much a necessity)

Don't dry fire the LV1 a lot...the LV1 was designed to have a little back pressure from a ball in the breech as it fires. If you have one of the PE Mufflers that's ok as it provides the back pressure. If you dry fire a lot you will wear out your bumper on your RAM and even worst you could ruin the Lever Valve within the marker itself.

Don't tune it out if the box. Wait a little while. Mine was 3 cases. Others it's been up to 10. Just play with it, and you can tell when it will need tuning. That's when I would recommend changing rammers if you want to

Don't dry fire it all. Leave the setting alone for awhile I recommended san out 10 cases before you tune it. Register it with Pe and first and foremost enjoy it

I got mine on Friday and took it out. Make sure you shoot good paint when tuning it. I started with crap paint and the chrono was over a huge range (20-25). I put good paint in, 280-285 every time.

You can shoot it stock or tune it. Just follow the hustle paintball youtube video to tune it.

LV1 is fantastic.
