Question Phenom Barrel

Hello again PBNation!

As the season is finishing up for me I am looking to buy a new barrel for practice in the off season. Currently I am using the stock barrel.

I thought I had decided on the DeadlyWinds Fibur-X barrel with the freak inserts and the adapter for the X7P. Then I heard that that combo does not work well if you choose to upgrade the bolt. I am also planning to upgrade the bolt to the Techt Pro BK.

Please let me know your thoughts and experiences with different barrel combinations and if you have tried the above mentioned. What works best for you?

Thanks everyone!
Branden

My Tippmanns always benefited from a medium/small bore barrel. Freak inserts never did it for me on them. Right now I run a lapco big shot .687 on mine and it puts paint where I want it everytime.

Got a lapco on mine to, and it's a quality barrel. I let other people use it to and they are amazed how accurate it is.

what works best for me is a clean and dry barrel! cp and j&j are good for what they cost. j&j is pretty quiet as well; tons of porting.

lapco makes good barrels; some of the most polished bores i've seen.

does the stock bolt need to be upgraded? is there anything wrong with it? kind of off-topic, but if the stock bolt works fine, keep it and spend the money on something else, like more paint!

Thanks for the replies! Please keep them coming.

There is no immediate reason to upgrade anything other than the barrel. I just want to have that comfort for the future.

Does anyone have experience with the lapco bigshot assault or the DW fibur-x on their phenom? If so, do you have upgrades? How does it work?

Thanks!
