Im thinking of getting a tech t hush bolt for 20$ used in excellent condition and a CP 15$ feed-neck also used 10/10 condition i was wondering if those upgrades make a difference and if the price is good.

Also looking for a good $30> barrel, ive heard the cp barrels are good but wondering if any other good barrels available.

Edit: link to the items im thinking about getting http://www.techpb.co...howtopic=189958

$35 for those seem like a pretty good deal so id go for it. try nd talk him down and see and if he will do both for $30 shipped. i would skip the barrel upgrade though and save that money. do you mind if i ask why you want a barrel upgrade?

Actually the reason im buying a new barrel is because i dont have the stock barrel, and yeah i was planing on lowering the price a bit.

You should get a Lurker Eigenbarrel in .684. Perfect bore for everything!

bolt and feedneck wont make any difference on the blitz. The stock feedneck works perfectly fine. Also, my friend got the hush for his blitz and found it to cause more problems. Also, a stacked tube blow back isn't going to gain any efficiency or become any quieter.

Well i have no barrel atm so i need to buy a barrel, which would you recommend? I want the feed-neck for the blitz because i don't like twist lock feed-necks, also i heard the tech=t bolt has problems only if you have wrong o-ring size. But its only 20$ so im willing to take the risk. What advantages would it provide if it is working? Its worth 55$ it has to provide advantages

You should get a Lurker Eigenbarrel in .684. Perfect bore for everything!



How much are they worth? Also im not sure which bore the paintball's i use are i just get regular Walmart paint and i play in new york. Can you link me one of those barrels

I'd recommend the Lurker barrel, or a Lapco Snapshot, Or the Deadlywind. The techt bolt really gives no advantage. It doesn't help the gun at all. Its worth $55 cause people are willing to shell out money to "upgrade" their gun, then create some sort of psychological reasoning of how it somehow benefits from said waste of money. Get the feedneck if you want, but I've got a friends blitz in my hands right now and the feedneck clamps on halos, vmax's and nokios just fine.

I'd also suggest staying away from walmart paint. Buy the low grade paint at your field, it will shoot better for nearly the same price.

The Lurker is only $40. The other barrels are just what else to look for, maybe used. Best barrels on the market.

Unless what your field uses as rec paint is stinger or basic training, you shouldn't have problems. Stuff like heat, GI Sports 1 star, and valken infinity shoot money for $40.

I would get different paint but i dont order paint online and those jt paint are the only thing they have at Walmart, my field is very cheap and buys the cheapest things they can get on the market so i would rather buy the jt paint rather then the local field's paint. Also im not sure which bore size to get for my barrel.

honestly, either under bore, or over bore. Get something around .678-.682 or .687-.691

Problem with the walmart paint is that every case is going to be completely different. You never know how old it is. Personally, I'd go with an overbore. So anything in the .687+ area should be good.

If I were you I would probably go .687 on the barrel. I shoot jt paint for backyard practice and sometimes the balls float through my barrel and other times I have to force them through(with the barrel off and sliding the balls themselves through). My stock kaos barrel is .689 I do believe

While I do agree with the bolt. I can't agree with the feed neck. The Blitz comes stock with the old Spyder style twist neck. Not the greatest of necks, even for a beginner marker. I bought one of these for my RS, greatly improved how my loader sits and secures to the marker. It's Ion threaded, so will fit pretty much anything.

get the .684 lurker, it is stepped up at the end and it will work well with a good underbore for most paint. it is right in the middle of the road on bores so you will be good all around.
