Stock viking barrel good for small paint?

I mainly use diablo paint which I know is pretty small.
Would I still need to get an aftermarket barrel to fit the paint (I use a freak on my other gun but don't have the thread to fit the viking when it comes) or is the stock one pretty good for small paint?

Viking stock barrel is 0.684. OMFG can you believe it's that small!?! That would be small bore IMO.

Not all of them is .687, some are. Mine is, but others are .684.

If you have the .684, yes its good for small paint.

Tapered barrel??

I heard that the barrels were tapered from .684 up to .689 and there really only is one stock barrel. Is this true? All the paint I use is .684 and I wondered if anybody kept their stock barrel on the Vik or did everybody upgrade?

slightly tapered

I measured mine with a calibrated mitotoyo inside micrometer and it is .685 at the breech (where the ball enters) and .6865 at the muzzle (where the ball leaves) before the muzzle break

One other thing, Ive shot a half case of Kick'N Mettalix (Medium Bore) thru mine and the paint was SUPER tight. I thought it would break, in fact I was sure it would but it didn't and it was very nice. The only thing I noticed was on some of the balls, near the end of travel, would slightly spin off in any direction. If you have a good paint/barrel match it should work great.
