Dangerous power g5

My friend is getting a dpg5 and I told him that he would need to buy a better barrel or barrel kit. However I have no idea what his best option is. His maximum amount that he is willing to spend is $150. And he liked the idea of a barrel kit better then just one barrel. Need help please.

Spend less on barrel and more on Paint. The better the paint. The straighter the shot.

I agree with him. I have the g5 and i've been using crappy paint and it's been shooting pretty straight so i can only imagine it shooting with actually good paint.

I had my stock G5 barrel bored to accept Freak inserts by a guy at MCB. It costs about $40. Another $75 for an aluminum Freak insert set and you are good to go. If you want to see pictures let me know and I will post some. I can also pm you a link to the thread.

The DP barrel is just fine. The problem with DP is you may have to save a bit for a new board because its only a matter of time before your board breaks.

DP makes good guns, their weakness is whoever is making their boards.

A lot of people do just fine with the stock board. However, maybe 10% of people will have to order a replacement board from DP.

So if my friend did end up getting a freak barrel kit what type? All American or freak? I looked at some websites but I still don't understand the difference between the two.

The barrel tip exterior design/look is different. Same barrel, pick the one that looks cooler to you.

Thanks for the info. I heard something (probably just ****) that all American had different backs instead of different inserts. I will look at both barrels and show him which one he thinks is cooler thanks again guys!
