Multi-Bore 1pc Barrels?

Who makes "good" 1pc barrels in multiple bore sizes?

I've searched, but can't find anything like what I'm looking for.

Thanks

AbitNutz: Thanks, I'll do look at them in more detail.

hyper_dermic: I had been told (not saying it is fact) that the Stiffi's had a problem with the threads coming apart?


I'm looking for 3-4 of the most common bore sizes, 12" -14" long, and not that much porting. Something like the Boomies, but with multiple bore sizes.

A Lapco set of Autospirit and Bigshot will cover 90% of the paint you'll encounter in the world, and shoot it all very well. I own about fifteen barrels, and I use those two more than any others on my guns. They're around 12" long (11.5" actually as I recall), very well made, and don't have a bunch of porting or anything. They just work, and they're cheap since there's no titanium, adamantium, unobtainium, or plutonium involved in their manufacture.

You should be able to get the set of two for 100-120 bucks total from your local major retailer, or direct from Lapco, or whatever. I'd skip the stainless steel unless you REALLY want it and go for aluminum. My stainless Autospirit is nice, but it's heavy enough to double for home defense.

I agree, they also have a new barrel called the microshot that is .684. They also just introduced a new dual diameter barrel.

Lapco has 4 barrels out right now.

Microshot which is .684, AutoSpirit which is .686, and the Bigshot, which is .689. They also have the Snapshot 2pc which is multi bore.

I own all 4 of these barrels, and they are truely the best barrels on the market.

They are also the most reasonably priced. I wish they would do another Lapco challenge.

Now if they'd only make the Microshot in Angel threads, I'd be happy....

JazKal, i have not heard of the thread problem you mentioned...
the only problem i have heard about the stiffi barrels is with the 1gen models. the tips would break off under extreme conditions.....
if that happens stiffi replaces your barrel free of charge.
if you have the money Stiffi is the way to go...
I know someone who can give you a good price on stiffi barrels or the kit... PM me and ill give ya his email.

and as for the lapco, i love that barrel as well...
my bigshot has served me very very well, the only down side to lapco's barrel is its LOUD... very loud....

I got 4 different bore sized All-Americans for my old skool Shocker for less than $80... .684, .686, .689, .692. I loved it and it worked really well for me. The only problem was that they were all different lengths (1 - 12", 2-14", 1 - 16") and colors (2 - Black, 1 - Blue, 1 - Gold/Black/Red Splash), but that's not too horrible.
