get rid of the stock barrel!

Almost everybody who i have played with has gptten rid of thier stock barrel on thier tippmanns (of course, they suk) so i wanted to make a few suggestions to tippmann....

1. Make the stock barrels better
2. Pffer packages with the flatline or werks or cut deals w/J&J or Lapco
3. Sell the gun w/0 a barrel and put a coupon in the package for tippmann made barrels (this would lower the price of the gun and help tippmann sell more barrels)

tell me what you think about this, I understand it kind of undermines the whole "custom" concept, however this modification to tippmann's selling tactics would appeal to the consumer. Tell me what you guys think about it and if i should confront tippmann with this idea.

They put the stock barrel on so if people cant afford a better barrel they could stick with it.

how is shooting over 300 fps an accomplishment? all u have to do is back out the velocity screw and it should shoot well over 300 fps, and the reason the stock barrels are so crappy is because its pretty much a pecie of pipe with crappy porting and a bad finish, they know u'll get a new barrel soon anyway theres no point in putting money into something u'll soon throw away anyway

and if they didnt give u a barrel to start out with u'll ***** and complain about not getting one to begin with

the coupon is a good idea, but i think there are so many people that want it done with in a one package deal. most people buying the 98 are beginners who don;t want to have to spend more money on stuff. not a bad idea tho

Naah,.

I still use the stock barrel on my A5,. I just cut it back just beyond the porting,.

It makes a great CQB barrel.

It also make a great drinking straw,. If you are really really thirsty!!

I have polished the stokc barrels on all tippys for years. toothpaste, cotton rags, water and wire adapter to put the rags on mounted to a cordelss drill......dampen the rag, cover with abrasive tooth paste, wet barrel. place rag assembly into the barrel and fire up the drill moving the rag back and forth, whipe running water through it, will make a great finish in jsut about 5 minutes

Why would they make a better stock barrel? That would be stupid on their part. They make money by selling their own aftermarket barrels, aka the Tippmann Werks barrel.

Making a higher quality stock barrel is only going to take away from their, and others', aftermarket barrel business.

+ you can get it shooting over 300fps ang.1 without bring your screw out all the way, with cheap and affordable electrical tape.
