get a kit...
any quality kit will make paint go where you aim it.
all the popular barrels will do.

it really is a matter of choice... i got a J&J kit.
pull the trigger-> ball come out... it works I wrecon all barrels do that so itīs really a matter of paint/bore adaption

OMG...this is a preference question. Unless we are you, and we're not, there is no possible way of answering this question correctly. Any barrel that has cocker threading will work. YES, some are better than others but this is all preference. Some will live and die by UL's, other's CP, other's carbon fiber barrel's. Check some out, see what you like, buy what you like.

The best advice anyone can give in this thread is: "Buy one with cocker threading, I'd suggest a kit if you shoot all kinds of paint, if your gonna just buy one I'd say get one with a .688 - .690 bore...and I'd say get a 14in."

As far as brand....IT'S ALL PREFERENCE.

I love how people ask this question.... as if there is some specific marker/barrel combination that'll just instantaneously make the gun explode.

huffman150's got it right.

freak kit..so much more accurate because its cheaper to have more inserts to match your bore size. match bore size=more accurate

its not like the UL and **** where a back costs like, 60 bucks so its hard to match. but if you can buy the same paint everytime, get the UL or stiffi

I currently have a Proto one piece 14" barrel and it is doing well for me. It cost around $32 and is made of the same materials as the UL. Honestly, that barrel and the stock barrel are the only ones I'd ever need. Its a great buy. The Proto barrel is a .690 bore, and the stock is a .693 bore size, so its perfect.
And then the Canadiens said, "Lets just ask them nicely to leave. If they don't, well beat em with our hockey sticks."
