I currently have an Automag with a PMI Perfect 12" ceramic barrel. It is ported. My shots aren't as accurate as I'd like them to be...is it the paint/barrel match or the ported barrel doing it?

Usually I'm using RP paint (can't remember which type off hand, sorry....field I'm usually at uses RP).

more than likely its the barrle/paint match, and the porting really doesnt have anything to do with it.

Porting doesnt really have anything major do do with accuracy... it reduces turbalence letting the ball travel furthur... More then likely, it is a ball/bore match problem... I think that your barrel is listed on one of these charts... use this thread to help you choose a "better" paint

PORTING IS A GOOD THING. IF ANYTHING IT WILL DRAMATICALLY IMPORVE YOUR PERFORMANCE IT IS PAINT/BARREL DEFINATLY I HAVE NOT DOUBT.
