i own an all american 16 inch...the only con i can think of is its 16 inches..and sometimes gets in the way...it is accurate and pretty quiet.

i also own a BOA Concealer...its a silenced barrel..some of the cons are they are as far as i know illegal in most tourneys...they are kinda heavy and if u sight of your barrel the silencer gets in the way...it is the most quiet and accurate barrel i have ever seen...i had to get it made special for like 95 dollars but its well worth it.

I have a 12" J&J Ceramic and it shoots good paint GREAT, but the few times I've had to shoot bad paint, it was horrible. It does clean the breaks well though - problem is, that doesn't matter since the bad paint doesn't fly straight anyway.

Overall, I've been quite happy with it, especially for the price.

my collestion

Blazer:
Palmer 11" nickel plated elliptical honed .688 will shot just about anything
BOA 8.5 Snakebite (it's old) was a cocker barrel that I had lathed down to fit. Also shoot just about anything. Not sure on bore.

Cocker:
Smart Parts All American 12" big bore, don't use it
Smart Parts Venturi 8.5" also big, also doesn’t fit on cocker.
SS 8.5" medium bore, not sure who makes it Devaut said it was a Taso, but to me the tip looks the same as my Marker Steel Wind (below. This one works well with most anything also it cleans quick too, usually just shoot through a Gak
Freak Deluxe, 10" all black. So far works great, easy to clean. Not the happiest in the rain, but that’s what happens with that many holes in the tip. Going to get the All American tip for this soon
Boomstick 10" also for the cocker should be here soon

Automag:
Marker Steel Wind 8.5" this is my fav. Mag barrel, I have had it for 6 years now and once I got the nubbin correct this thing has never let me down. Dawn from Warpig told me to get this bad boy way back when and I still thank every time I see her. I has worked well with most paint, I spend $125 on this thing 6 years ago from I&I (ended up to be only $75 was a flyer in the box and they where on sale.
Marker Steel Win 12" got this of EBay for like $30 haven't used it much, haven't used my Mag a lot lately.
14" Boomstick, it's longer then I like my barrels, it on the bigger side of middle, this one gets loaned out to my friends a lot.
Smart Parts 8.5" Venturi she big too, got it cheap too used from the paintball store.

Others:
Got a Lap co for a Phantom, mis shipped from G3 going to get it lathed down also for the Blazer its 11.5"
Stock autococker barrel (very old) 6" maybe? On the ranger going to Devaut
Crownpoint Stock Automag barrel, put in it's time but rarely used now.

I've got a flatline barrel. i love it. the distance it gives me is unbelievable. you have to feed it good paint, though, or else it shreds the balls. also, once a ball does break, it is pretty difficult to get the barrel fully clean. It is still well worth the money. I also have a dye aluminum barrel. it is a great barrel. it shoots very accurate and is nice and light.

12" Black CP

This barrel is awesome! I'll tell ya about a little test I did. I screwed on my stock barrel, fired my gun a couple times... boy was it loud! then I shot my gun with no barrel on.. loud also. So then I screw on the cp barrel, and that barrel made my gun so quiet... everyone around me was like.. that barrel sure does do the job. Its a very accurate barrel to.

Pros:
-Awesome look
-Accurate
-Quiet
-gas efficent(sp?)

Cons:
-On the tip of the barrel, I have a lil chip
-Once a ball breaks, you have to fire the gun a couple times to get it clean enuff to shoot straight.

I would recommend this barrel to anyone that wants a new barrel and doesn't want to spend a lot of money.

DYE SS. I like heavy barrels. It keeps my cocker stable to shoot fast. It is heavy, but it shoots hella nice.

Mag
~16" PMI ceramic barrel - i dont know where to buy these, i got it in a trade but it is one nice barrel. it is dead on accurate and pretty quiet. its my all time favorite barrel.
~12" CP barrel - this barrel hasnt got much action, the wire nubbin thing is screwed up so i cant use it. from what i hear this is a good barrel tho.

M98
~14" Tru Flight barrel - this barrel cost me $20. everyone who has one says they suck but i guess i am just weird cuz i love it. it shoots accurate and isnt too loud and is a all around good barrel for $20.
~Stock barrel - m98 stock barrels just suck! they are the worst barrels out there i believe.

Spyder
~Stock barrel - this barrel shoots ok. it shoots like its supposed to, its a stock barrel.
~14" Dye Xcel barrel - this barrel is sweet. it shoots extremely far and has excellent range for being on a stock spyder compact. i highly recommend this barrel to all spyder owners.

A bunch of em for the different guns I've got, but my personal favorite is my 12" DYE Stainless for my Autococker. It is quiet, easy to clean and very tough.

The downsides, it is shiny (stainless steel gee I wonder why ) and it is heavy.

I shoot marbelizer through it and *very rarely* get any breaks. In fact, the last 3 times I played I had no breaks and I went through quite a bit of paint. Maybe I'm just lucky. Then again, I don't do much rapid fire, I take a shot, if it didn't hit.. pause, take another, etc.

I own a Lapco Bigshot

Well here is my reasons I like the Lapco Big shot:


1. Very accurate(you could literally shoot paintball on top of paintball sometimes)

2.One of the best Barrel's out there.

3.Same accuracy as the dye boomstick but it is louder than the boomy.

4.I can shoot people's hoppers in like 5 shots now.

5. Test have proven it's accuracy.(go to the Lapco site and look for the link to the barrel test)

6. It is Gas Efficient.

7. They blow out all the barrels in it's class in accuracy.

8. All around good barrel.


Inconclusion this is the best barrel I have owned and don't be fooled b/c the price is so low it is the most accurate barrel out there. I am for real when I shoot two paintballs real fast they land on top of each other and that should tell you how accurate it is. Also just to give you a idea on how loud it is, it is about as loud as a stock barrel on a spyder paintball gun. If you use really small paint get the lapco autospirt it is the same accuracy but it is made for small bore paint and if you use medium paint get the Big shot. But who cares how loud it is when it has the best accuracy. If I were you I would get a Lapco they have good quality products and there barrels are awesome.

I think it really depends on your gun... If you have a Stingray 2, I really recommend going out and buying the $30 Custom barrel for it. It really improved accuracy, and made it quieter. It also got rid of the barrel twisting around... The only con about it, is that it is a 12" and makes your gun seem even larger then it already was. Check out the Stingray Picture Thread to see what Im talking about...

barrels

Shocker 4x4
Stock SP 16" All American: Med bore, a little heavy, AMAZINGLY accurate.
J&J 14" Ceramic: Med bore, light as a feather, "blah" grey, gogs players from 100ft away on the second shot!

PF Automag Classic:
12" 32deg Carbon Fiber: Med bore, cool "holographic weave" pattern, heavier than you'd think because of the steel back, super loud, pretty darn accurate.

Thumbs up 12" Boomstick and 14" infinity barrel

on my Dark LCD

They are both excellent barrels, I prefer the boomer as it is shorter which suits my game better ( I play Sup-Airball exclusively).
