Nothing beats a Lapco for accuracy (assuming a good paint fit). Tests have proved that. Some other barrels are quieter, but all that porting means a loss of efficiency since the ball stops being pushed when it reaches the ports and is just coasting thru that part of the barrel (meaning it had to be hit with a larger blast of air). Buy what you like but remember that there are no magic barrels; just good ones and various sizes and grades of paint. Btw, I've purchased a Lapco Bigshot and Autospirit for $50 each and I can shoot pretty much any decent paint very well, plus I shot well over half a case on a 20oz tank without running out of air.
