Barrel Kits

Yeah. Im wanting to get an aftermarket barrel but Im not sure if I wanna go with like a .689 Stiffi or if I should just get a Redz Barrel kit.

The paint to bore matching with the kit seems like a plus to me and the prices arent really that much difference.

I have used kits to match bores and some have been better than others in regards to accuracy results. But I have been going with an over bore barrel size for a while, with outstanding accuracy results. Effeciency suffers though but not much. I use a .693 CP Classic one piece right now with outstanding results with all size paints except the real tiny stuff, for those I switch to a .689.

The only barrel I was ever truly sad to sell and still am was the original WGP Kaner kit (pre-karnivore). It was just the best I had tried, the J&J original EDGE Kit (2003) was a good kit as well.

I know this is not as helpful as saying out right what I fell is the very best- but to be honest IT DOES NOT EXIST. use what works, try a few of them out if you get a chance to borrow from a friend.

My Redz kit has been great for me, After my CCM Carbon fiber unwrapping, I am done with carbon fiber. The smaller weight is no big deal, I go to the gym

Yes thank you- go to the gym- more people should go to the gym and lift more than a game controller in their off time.

I shoot a dye ultralite from my dm on my fusion and it shoots laserbeams. I have used just about every make of barrel on the market and prefer either a dye or hammerhead kit. They are the most expensive but they are the best imo.

Redz barrels dont work for me. I wont shoot anything over 12" and they only come in 14" and 16". Waay to long! I personally like the pipe kit the best.

the 16 i would almost never use, the 14 is perfect size, and 12s are almost too small

so i could just keep the 16 for like open play, or woodsball

I use a 10" or a 12"

Youd be surprised how much quicker a 10" barrel is than a 14"
