Lapco barrel

Hey everyone. I am pretty sure I am going to go the lapco route and buy that barrel for my A5 with RT. I am looking at them and see the .690 size etc. what does that mean? What which should I purchase? Another thing, I was thinking a 10" or 12". Recommendations?

That is the bore size of the barrel...I would go with the .688 .690 is a bit big for paint now a days I would get the 12

Okay I might just get the .690 then because my local field uses grafittis.

That's cool of them. great customer service. What exactly does the apex do? From reading it seems like it helps curve shots?

Right. It curves the ball so you can try to bend it around the sides or tops of bunkers.

Ok I will probably get the apex ready one just in case I upgrade in the future. I played today and there were a couple situations I could have used it. How do you pick how it curves?

Do you have a response trigger on yours?

It has a knob or switch to turn on the various sides. You pick it up pretty fast. I've had an RT but my last gun was a egrip.

Ok cool... Today was my first time using my A5. I have the response trigger, and a 68/4500 tank. I couldn't figure out the trigger. I kept trying to get "the sweet spot" but couldn't find it. Any recommendations? Adjustments I can make to it? It would defiantly help my game.

Was it working correctly though? I always had mine set between what I though was 1/4 and 1/3 if I'm remembering correctly.

I mean the gun shot. But just one shot when I pulled the trigger. I never got a burst or anything like that. Are you talking about 1/4 where the knob is to the right of the trigger?
