I never drastically underbore, but with a fairly close fit I've never had issues. I've played in rain, hot weather and ~40s and never had an issue. Like I said before, just the weight and sound reduction is enough for me to buy something else.

Well considering I spent 24 years in Billings Montana and only recently moved to first Quantico, VA and now Florida under military orders I would say your incorrect. When the shell of the paintball gets brittle it cant handle the warping that occurs from underboring. If you are using winter paint, you can get away with it a little more but we used to have terrible results attempting to underbore in the winter. You could literally slap a larger bore on there and see an immediate reduction in paint breaks. As I said I generally advocate underboring, you just have to be sure conditions permit it. I haven't had a single paint break since I have been down here in Florida.

Deadlywind with a .684 insert all day long. It's the only barrel that makes the gun feel different slightly. Only reason i have it is because i share it between all my guns.

Don't forget that for every 10 degrees Celsius ( sorry for the metric, I'm Canadian Eh) you barrel wil shrink 0.001 of an inch. So, if you're going from 20C (70F) to 0C (32F) your barrel will have shrunk by 0.002". That with the balls becoming more fragile, could leed to a soupy mess .

He already said he just moved there.

When you say underboring, how much are you talking? I was having breaks with paint that had to be blown out of a .684 when I was running a .679, but with a nice snug fit where you can still blow it out I've never had issues.

I had issues with anything under a bore match in very cold temperatures. I had the best results when I simply used an overbore. Your free to do/recommend as you choose, I am just not going to as I know it does not/has not worked for me.

Bore matching is probably closer to what I do... I don't like paint to roll out.

I use Deadlywinds with great consistency almost ball on ball all day long. We get a lot of different bore sizes. .682-.687 depending on which field I play at n which grade paint.

Another good option is having your stock barrel bored to take Freak inserts. You can keep the matching barrel. Only 'drawback' is that you would be stuck with .685 bores and smaller. But like it was mentioned before, how long has it been since you have seen paint that .693? It's been about 8-9 years for me.

As everybody else has stated the stock barrel is great from the times I've used my friends G6R. However if paint is a different size than your barrel I would invest in a kit of some kind if you have some extra money.

Either the BL kit or I prefer the Deadly Winds with freak insert because its so light.

If you're gonna drop cash on a barrel kit its a good idea to get one with some science behind it. Barrel kits that come with ~8 inch backs would give the best performance and efficiency. Desert Edge has a great kit made by Lapco, but there are a few other barrel kits with similar length backs.

Under boring with quality paint gives me awesome results, if I am using crappy paint I try to bore match or even go a little bigger bore.

It seems like when I under bore with crap paint it will swerve all over the place like the under boring is exaggerating the imperfections of the paint. I play pump and semi and have seen it happen with both. If I didnt have a dw kit I would probably just underbore with a lurker barrel

Underboring + cold led to a soupy mess at my last tournament. The paint was brittle tournament grade also. But that's a fairly extreme case.

I have a Disruptive Kit and I love it. 8" control bore + extremely quiet *and* it looks snazzy. But I like the stock barrel a lot too.

Try a kit out (find someone from your field). If you like it, snag one. Otherwise the stock will do you just fine.

Try a disruptive barrel.I'm not gonna give u a shpeil about how its magic, a barrel is a barrel and doesn't really matter what brand if u bore size, and a paintball leaves 300 fps nomatter what barel aswel,but disruptive barrels really shine when it comes to porting and internal finish.the porting really does reduce sound signature and drains paint away from the holes and inside the bore when ur playing tight on a shot to hell bunker

I ended up just getting the bob kit because I thought the stock barrel shot just fine! i just wanted the kit for bore sizing. works really well. good sound signature too if you care about that. better than a vanguard or ultralite I think, at least on my G6R.
