Glued Barrels...

If you look in the end of the barrel towards the breech of a glued barrel, you can see the seam where the back meets the front.

If you look in the breech side, towards the muzzle you can see the difference in the polish of the back as opposed to the front.

Does that seam not make a difference?

I mean they spend all that time polishing and micro-honing the ID of the back, and then there's an abrupt change in diameter...

Are one piece barrels (not-glued) the same inner diameter throughout? or do they open up (gradually I suppose) to a larger diameter after the first 5"

Why don't companies simply make 5-6 different bores of the same one piece barrel, and sell them. I would buy 3 and not ever have to worry about backs fronts, seams, or changing inner diameters ever again...

Well, I guess most barrels are step-up barrels. Meaning the back has a slightly smaller diameter, and the tip is a bit larger.

Now, if you look from the breach to the muzzle, and don't see a seam, then you're good. That probably means that the ball won't be affected. But you're supposted to see the change in polish.

Then just order the one piece barrels from CP. They do make their one piece barrels in many bore sizes. However, most places just seem to buy the most commonplace size, .689.

Hell yeah, that's what I'm talkin about.

Are there any other companies that do this? (multiple bores of same barrel)

Um, Dye makes a complete line now of different bores for their UL, Boomy, and Ti line, but I dunno if they have made these new ones in ICD Threads yet.

I wonder if you can get the Dye excel barrels in different bores? Or Smart Parts Teardrop?

I bet you can, and both those barrels shoot really well.

different barrels, even from different manufacturers are different sizes. You can always pick up a Lapco big shot for med paint, Dye Boomie for smaller paint and use your stock barrel for larger paint (for example). Millenium paintball used to have a barrel size chart on their site...mpaintball.com, but they've redone their site and left that off. Too bad, it was usefull. I'm sure there are other sites that have that information if you look.

...and yes, most barrels are only 'sized' for the first 6 - 8"...some taper larger, some step.
