Yes, you can use an N2/compressed air tank. Be sure to get one that is high output pressure. You can upgrade the barrel to any Spyder threaded barrel. Overall length is far less important than getting a quality barrel. You could have a very long barrel, but that won't help your accuracy as much as having a well made barrel. That site seems to carry CP barrels, which are a good choice. Just make sure - Spyder threads, otherwise it won't screw into the gun.

Bore size has nothing to do with the gun. It's all about the paint. Just to be safe, get around .685 or .689. Between those would be perfect. I prefer underboring over anything, but that's me.

I'm going to assume the original poster here is from Europe, given the monetary unit he mentions. Paint in Europe is running larger than what we get in the States. Something to bear in mind.

what do you mean by running larger? do you mean the size of the balls them selves?

Yep. Sizing is generally measured in inches. Where I'm at, I've been seeing a lot of paint being .679 in size, sometimes even smaller. What I'm hearing is that in Europe, paint is still .691 or more. Big ball in a small bore barrel will be a real problem. The paint is likely to break because it can't get through the barrel. Just as bad can be the other problem - small paint in a big bore barrel. You lose a lot of efficiency and accuracy that way.

ok so i would have to make sure that if i got a longer barrel for a gun it would need to be the same bore and as the one on it already?

Play with the stock barrel a few times and ask the experienced players at your local field what size bore they recommend. Paint varies in size from location to location, climate to climate, and brand to brand.

Don't get a barrel over 16 long.

ok thank you all very much for your help.

i was going to upgrage then barrel length to a 12" barrell maximum. purely got i think it looks better.

i have also spoken to people at my local field and they are very good they are 5th in UK, and they said that the longer barrell can help the accuracy of the gun is this correct?

the bore that they use at my local field is a .689 but wouldnt the bore depend upon the gun that i am using cos of the bore size of the barrell?

Yes, while length of the barrel (up to 16 inches) will improve accuracy, you will also go through air quicker. No, different barrels have different bore sizes. The actual mechanical parts of the gun wont be effected, unless you try to us a .50 in a .68whatever or vise versa.
