LV1 Barrel Suggestions

I have an LV1. What type of barrel would be best. Should I just get the shaft 4 boost kit, or is there a better option?

Honestly, the Shaft 4 kit is just as good as anything else.

Shaft 4 is great. I also really like the Lurker Kit. For the price point its a great kit and it is nice to have the smaller bore size than the shaft 4. GI paint can be quite a small bore on occasion in my experience.

Barrel opinions for LV1

Hey PBN. Just got an LV1 with the stock 16" Shaft 4. Any opinions on what barrel looks and performs best? I've had freak kits in the past and love the inserts, but any other options out there? .684-.689 bore preferably. Thanks!

Just get the shaft 4 backs or if you want to use the freak inserts you already have I recommend a deadly wind cf.

The stock barrel with the long control bore is spot on.. if you really insist on trying something different I recommened a Lurker barrel or for a variety or bores go with a freak kit.

Boost kit is a great option. PE barrels are flawless Im not sure why everyone jumps at the chance to "upgrade".

This Lurker barrel kit I think I will give a try good price point and seems that they come recommended. I love the shaft 4, the problem is that .689 stock bore is a bit big at times I can see my shots sway. I was really just going to save and get the PE boost kit but to get a full kit would be at least 200 at 50 bucks a back and they don't have the color to match my gun any way so if I have to do black may a well go with something else if it is just as good for less money. I wish I could try them out and see how they shoot, feel, and look on my gun.

Since you like the stock barrel and you have freak inserts, why don't you splurge and spring for $35 and get your stock barrel back bored for inserts. You get to keep the same looks and problem solved. I just had my Resurrection barrel done, It takes about a week turnaround and GOG has a new .677 back out that is already chamfered for underboring so no barrel breaks.
