I'm thinking of getting a Flasc T9.1 barrel and i'm wondering which bore size would be best. it's between a .687 and a .684 bore. I am using FS only so i'm wondering which is better. the website says that the .684 is inadvisable for FS use but the one that Tiberius/Lapco makes is a .683 so which would you use?

I would go for Lapco if I were you.

Bores for FS rounds should be around .683 and .684

Get a .685 or .687 if you're planning on using both types of paint too.

My Feedback 20/0

BORG YOU WILL BE MISSED.

Okay, so Flasc doesn't have any .687 FSR1 barrels in stock, and they said it would be at the earliest early to mid october before they have any more. So should I get the .690 or the .684?

The Lapco/Tib sniper barrel is underbored so the FSR will engage the rifling. With a smooth bore barrel like the Flasc, you'll have better results with a larger barrel ID. Go with the .690.
Now that I got a good long Stiffi on my 'cocker I just need to find some dudes to shoot my balls on...

LAPCO makes great barrels (I got a long and short one for my T9.0) but, I would settle for a FLASC, to save a little money.

Neither LAPCO nor, Tiberius recommend underboring with FS rounds. LAPCO specifically recommends .690 for FS rounds. In my 9.1 with the underbored LAPCO/Tiberius Rifled barrel, you have to raise the pressure on the reg considerably just to get up to 280FPS with this barrel as compared to the .690 smoothbore due to the increased friction. Trying to push a round through a freak insert in that size range is extremely difficult as well.

Posted Imageum... okay... so now they tell me that i can only get the .684 because the rest are out of stock, and I already ordered the .684... Dang it.

I run a .684 without any problems. I have yet to see any fouling issues due to underboring which is strange considering .683s are notorious for it.

I found that only the rifled barrel suffers noticeably due to fouling. It generates a lot more fouling than the smoothbores.
