Looking for 'Mil-Sim' barrel for Etha with EMC Kit.

Over the last couple weeks, I have begun assembling add-on's for my P.E. Etha with EMC Rail Kit.

I have a nice butt stock, foregrip, scope/sight, but something just doesn't look right. It's the stock barrel.

The stock barrel has been great for me playing 'speedball' , but just doesn't have the 'look' I have in my head when i picture myself mowing down 'enemies' in my next big scenario game.

Can anyone recommend a barrel? I'm looking for something that is affordable, functions well, and has a slightly aggressive look.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

And if this isn't the place for this, I apologize.

try the J&J ceramic barrel with autococker threads. They look nice, are easy to clean, accurate, and if a ball does happen to break in them, another shot should clear most of the debris. they even now have two piece barrels called the all star system. here are some I found on amazon if you want to browse a little.

Look at the Hammerhead Barrel Line-Up. Also check out Lapco because they make the kits for Desert Edge and work with PE two-piece barrels.

Also consider a Lapco Bigshot Assault barrel. They have interchangeable tips to get that milsim look you looking for and they are dead nuts accurate.

Alright, never heard of flasc barrels. Just looked them up and I have to say, those are nice. You have more options and they have a good price point too, as long as you know what you want. the barrel kits are a bit expensive but nowhere near as much as other companies barrel kits. think I found a new brand to buy for barrels. thanks for the heads up Warrzone.

Is flasc still out and about? Grab the largest bore you can find and add the cannoniser (jk use a different muzzle break).

Thank you all for your input. I will be researching all of those this week, and let you know what I decide.

I agree with this.

We've got a TON of customizable options that will allow you to make changes to your EMC kit without having to break the bank.

FLASC's Control Bore Barrel Kit is an awesome multiple bore option with different tips that offer different porting, and muzzle breaks to fit your personality and build-out.

I went with FLASC for my Phenom. No port control bore, with porting with the 2" and 3" extension.

No complaints really. Would like counter threading for the tips, but that would effect the extension

Quick fix is just add a few layers of teflon tape to the threads. I did it with the 2" extension, so it wouldnt unscrew out of the silencer/mg shroud when changing the control bore.

there is a "tactical" freak tip also (looks like the SP tactical barrel/m14 barrel). just sayan... might be able to pick one up for cheap, and I personally like the freak.
