Red face Stock G6R Barrel vs premium g6r barrel

Talked to BL Direct and asked about the G6R barrel for my 3rd Gen Alias. The sales rep stated that the Stock G6R is 14 inch .688 or .691 at 40.00 and the premium g6r barrel is 70.00 with your choice of barrel back. Being I have never shot either of them I am looking for your feed back. Going to order one just don't know which one. I either want a .686 or a .688


Thanks

only reasons to get the two piece are you can change out the bore if you ever need to and it makes it a little easier to carry around with ya

I'm pretty sure CP makes their one piece barrels not sure about the 2 piece tho, and go with a .686 to be safe since you won't have more options but its good to have different sizes if you want to get the best accuracy from your marker.

I'd go with a .679 or .682 2 piece. I have a 2 piece on my G6R and have a .679, .685, and .691 back for it and the only one that really sees any use is the .679.

well that sucks.

I'd go with .682; paint just keeps getting smaller and smaller.

Stock 685 is beat up and looks terrible, but is the only thing I run.

The only reason to get the 1 piece barrel is if you're getting the .679 or .682 bore. The 1 piece barrel will be more efficient and clean out faster than a 2 piece barrel of the same/similar bore.

This is generally true when overboring or matching however with underboring, you can get excessive drag with a one piece design yielding a little less efficiency performance than with a two piece. The ideal is somewhere around an 8 inch control bore on a two piece barrel or a one piece that has a stepped bore that works in a similar fashion (like the lurker barrels).

For overall performance I tend to prefer a one piece straight bore barrel. You can get pretty good efficiency performance without having to get super specific about your paint/bore size. I don't really like to fuss around much with kits anymore.

wasnt that only true for the control bore length?

Excessive drag that slows down the ball enough to cause a loss in efficiency/velocity happens at an underbore of .008+. The OP said he wanted a Bob Long barrel, and I believe the smallest single bore barrel he offers is .685. I don't know about you but I haven't seen .693 paint in 12-13 years.

I voted based on what I have and I have no complaints about my one piece .685. That being said, if I had the two piece I am sure I would enjoy that as well.

To clear up the confusion, I was speaking to one piece barrels with a straight bore in general, not specifically to the stock G6R barrel. The .008 number is also where any barrel will start to cause excessive drag on the ball, and I believe was done using the TechT iFit kit (if we are referencing the same Punkworks test). Once you get past the ideal control bore length of around 8 inches, you start to get excessive drag on the ball when underboring. The drag doesn't have an enormous impact, but for those wanting to get the absolute best efficiency, you still want to go with either a two piece or step bore that has 8 inches of control bore. The optimum bore length can also vary some with the type of marker used.

For the application of a stock barrel, the stock G6R barrel is superior to a two piece. The .685 bore is an ideal all around bore for todays smaller paint, and the straight bore allows the ball to continue to accelerate with even a looser bore fit.

And that's why I suggested it. I would have suggested a 1 piece barrel with a tapered bored after 8 inches like the Eigenbarrel or Tightstick, but that's not what he was asking about. I've used those to barrels exclusively for a couple years now with great results, but some people want certain stuff. All ya can do it suggest what works best for their cash.
