I'm a supporter of the freak barrel. Been using mine since 2004/2005ish. It's my barrel on all if my markers.

I am by no means saying it is the best, but it is the barrel I have been using the longest.

There is always the option of having a barrel you like, including the stock Axe barrel, Freak-bored. I had a silver 1-pc CP barrel Freak-bored by nerve2030 and it shot great.

Inception or Lurker kit. Solid bore backs will always be more true-sized than inserts, they control the ball to the correct length for efficiency and accuracy, and you don't have the problem of aligning the inserts in the barrel back.

Lapco fuse kit.

Edit: Or if looking to get a more reasonably priced kit go with Lurker.

I try to only use my Kaner kit. If I have to go smaller, I have a1 piece Lurker eigenbarrel.

I hear really good things about Lapco tightsticks.

Just get a 684 dye UL. It's the quietest barrel I've found myself.

From my experience the best barrels available are the Deadlywind fibur or shaft 4.

Freak is an all around great option. I prefer longer, control bores. The Eigen barrel or shaft barrel kits are great.

Eigenbarrel kit is a great choice. One of the best barrels available and the whole kit with 3 different bores will cost you less than one brand new UL. For the price you cant beat it IMO.

Just shot my Stella barrel from Inception and it is by far my favorite barrel. Changed the sound signature and kick.

Highly recommend you give them a look. If you like the freak, they have an insert back as well.

Deadlywind Fibur = American made CF + Freak.
1 piece concentric bored = impossible for joint to get mis-aligned.
Lightest of all barrel kits.

Don't take my word for it tho.
