So yea ill just order the freak with a .687 bore diameter then.
I shoot a lot of Cryptic, and Draxxus.. I would go with a .689. A .687 is a little small for most paint. I can shoot a .687 with Cyrptic or Frostbit in the cold (below 40), but much warmer and I will start busting them with a .687.
Inserts are only like $15 on most sites or paintball stores. Marker comes with a .693 (at least me EOS did). I would grab a .689 and a .691 to start. You much better slightly large than slightly small.. large wastes air and effect shot performance. small break balls.. Zephyr and others have empty cases for $10 - $20.. just add inserts as needed and build your set over time (unless you have $80 laying around and buy a whole set).
Not to hijack a thread, anyone try the stainless inserts? Any real advantage other than they look nice (hate the blue showing through my barrel.. yea I am picky)
