stay w/ pe stuff. you can get the 2 bore kit to go w/ your stock shaft2 barrel

check paintballshowcase they tend to have them in stock, if not try patinballgateway. its about 80$ for both bores, but they will screw right onto your shaft 2 tip, best thing you could get.


remember the tips of pe barrels are reverse threaded.

Just a basic rundown of how this works:

With most 2 piece barrels, the back determines the bore size, the front determines the length. So, for example, the barrel back might be a .687 bore (meaning it best accommodates balls that are .687 inches wide), and you might have a 12 inch front, which makes the overall length of the barrel 12 inches.

Freak kits work a little differently. The front still determines the length, but there is only one back. You put different inserts, which are like little metal sleeves, to change the bore size.

Barrel kits also have unique threading, so you can only match fronts and back from the same brands. There are one or two instances where one specific brand of front will work with another specific brand of back, but I can't recall what they are at the moment.

or wait it out, because the shaft4 kits are going to have a longer bore with a style similar to the furious or evil pipes, and are supposed to quiet your gun.

I stick to what i call a "whore bore" which is the largest bore for the dye ultralight that i've used for such a long time. 0.692 is the current bore size, i miss the 0.694...the theory i have is that it will shoot even the largest paintballs, i haven't had any real problems...i'm sure i could add like 40 more shots if i matched my paint but it's pretty much just as accurate. I've tried the freaks, cp, equation usa(back in the day), kaner, eclipse barrels, sly carbon fiber, etc. I always end up back on the Dye Ultralight 2 piece barrel either 14 or 16 inch length with largest bore back and of course the threading you need for your gun, most guns are now Cocker Threaded.

1. Generally, you can't use a separate brand for the tip and back

2. Check the date of the previous post before bumping a topic from 2010

A UL will not screw on to a shaft 3. The threading on a shaft 3 is inverted. meaning screws backwards, or rather counterclockwise. And thats only one of the reason. They biggest though.

But any barrel that is autococker threaded barrel will fit on your ego7.

Assume that you'll need to replace the entire barrel if you're switching brands, unless the manufacturer specifically states that the barrel you want is compatible with Eclipse tips.

i know this might not seem good but don't listen to everyones answers to this because you .693 barrel is all you need and you need to over bore your paint so you can shoot and have the least amount of breaks and that also can keep your balls on target. you don't need a 16in barrel because it gives the ball more room to get inside the barrle so no 16in. boreing the paint exactlly what it is can make more breaks because the condition your paint goes through just to reach in your hopper is making it expand also you guys are like oh no it doesn't well it does and trust me but it's a large process to know if you want help about paintball check ****** on youtube they helped me out
