Barrel question and opinions

Well I'm new to Dye guns- currently have a Luxe 2.0 and just sold an Ego 11 to get a new DM12. I don't know anything about dye guns, but I read thru all the stickies here to learn about the gun and downloaded the manual as well. My question is mainly about barrels. The dm comes with a .688 from what I've read. What's the normal or best way to have an assortment of sizes with dye barrels. Should I purchase a few different size backs or should I look into different barrels all together. What are you guys doing to accommodate for different sized paints.

Get a .692 back and bore it for freak inserts. Im not sure if you can do it with a .688 or not. That is what I would recommend.

That's a great idea as I have a full set of inserts for my luxe. I have heard of several people mention guys that do the machining for this but I have never been able to get a 100% answer on if they still do it. Does anyone know for a fact someone that does the freak boring. If so please tell me. That is my best option right now I think. And I'd say the cheapest while still maintaining great quality.

The guy on pbnation called super_stanchy does it. Here is his thread on McMaster Carr. I, also, know of one other guy that does it on a message board that I can't talk about, but the SSC guy does good work.

Just looked at his page. Are the dye DM12 factory backs considered UL backs. He can accept those.

Yeah, agreed, with a full set of freak inserts that's the best way to go.
