Best TiPX barrel?

So recently bought a TiPX and after a couple games, I realized the stock barrel is lacking. I wanna use my TiPX as a primary so I need a good barrel. I have some autococker barrel threads that work great. Should I just buy the lapco barrel adapter and have a 15 inch barrel on it (and look pretty stupid) Or should I buy something else.

Never used that adapter. But I do use the 2011 A-5 barrel on my Tipx and it is MUCH better than the stock tipx barrel...

Only sticks out about 2 inches too. Which is enough room to tape mod the Apex 1 on the end if you like backspin. My latest video shows what it can do set up this way.

Most adapters will not fit down the barrel block. You'll have the best results getting the stock barrel or an A5 barrel freak bored. Unless you're planning on shooting First Strike. In that case the Lapco FS Rifled barrels are the talk of the town, so to speak.

The stock barrel is terrible. When playing limited paint, you need an accurate shot.

I think Ill be picking up a .684 deadly winds null barrel. Talked to the people at deadlywinds and they had said the null fit the block but not the fibur-x.

Give it a shot, the HammerHead is also a great barrel.
