CP 1 piece is probably the best bang for your buck barrel you can get.

And if you are getting an autococker threaded barrel, look at the cp advantage barrel as well for $10 more. It's pretty much the same as the standard barrel, but looks much better to me. The porting may be different, but I'm not sure on that.

Agreed, the normal one looks weird to me.

Barrels don't increase range and accuracy like you think they probably do. A barrel with porting is less efficient but is quiter. A barrel with less or no porting is louder but more efficient. Longer barrels do look cool on guns but if you can't more range check out an autococker threaded apex tip

I've got a 16" CP one piece barrel, and a small first gen WGP Kaner barrel kit with 3 backs and 2 tips (10" and 12")... I actually really love the 12". It's super accurate even with old paint, and really maneuverable. the 16" is nice and looks sweet but it's unwieldy. So think about how you want to play I guess.

^^^^^^^^^^^^

Do not listen to this guy.


Accuracy is dependent on paint so I call shens.

Picaboo8 you can use any autococker threaded barrel on an ETHA. So yes you can use a dye boomstick as long as its cocker threaded.

if you look around the BST you can pick up some Ultralites for around 80. By far my favorite barrel in terms of looks and build quality.

Disruptive Barrels are great for the price. They have great honing, equal to the Custom Products barrels. But they also have some of the most porting and control bore of any other barrels out on the market. The porting is also stepped, thus is very quiet. Plus, they go for around only 50-60 bucks.

Generally, I think of these factors in deciding whether a barrel is good:

1) Is the barrel 14-16 inches long? It needs to be in this range to help maximize the exit velocity of the paintball prior to leaving the barrel. Any shorter and you lose acceleration. Any longer and you increase drag.
2) Does the barrel have an unported control bore of 8-10", preferrably closer to 10"? This also helps with velocity and consistency. For a 14-16" barrel with a 10" control bore, this will give you 4+ inches of ported length to modify the sound signature. I've heard that having a ported section helps slightly with consistency, but haven't tested or seen the data to confirm it.
3) Will the barrel be a slight underbore for my paint? Most of the paint in my area spans between .682 and .686 or so, then gets larger in the hottest months of the summer. Since paint-to-barrel bore match makes a marker slightly less consistent, I want to have either an underbore or overbore for consistency (with an underbore also improving velocity/efficiency). An underbore of .003-.005 is ideal with a max of about .008, so I'd want a barrel in the range of .677 to .683 depending on which field I'm playing on.

The other factors I might consider would be internal finish and exterior color, but most modern barrels have equivalent finish properties and color is not a performance-driven consideration.

Barrels don't effect accuracy, only boring and paint type... So I use a custom products 14" advantage barrel cause I think the regular looks odd. Save that extra $40 and use in on buying cases of better quality paint

That's why I suggested the Disruptive barrel. Same quality, and 10 dollars more, but comes with a longer control bore and much, much more porting.

one advantage of having a barrel over 14 inches is when you're playing speedball, you can press your barrel up against your bunker better for bunker more manipulation so you don't expose yourself as much.
