I feel like a found a pretty good deal with this barrel, but I was wondering if anyone knew the bore size of it?

Dang, so it might just be worth getting the CP barrel for $30 in a .685 bore then?

Not like it matters too much, but sure.

Both of those are pretty big bore sizes, you won't notice any difference in efficiency between the two.

I'm still new to all the tech stuff, so perhaps I over thought the significance of the size difference... is it really that negligible?

You will not notice any difference in performance between the two at all.

The bore size does matter. Cheap out a evil pipe kit on ebay. I got in for my cocker and it shoots lasers compared to my wife's tippmann and ceramic

I hope you know accuracy only matters mostly on the quality of paint, as most barrels, with the exception of some older stock barrels, have similsr finish, and equal accuracy, regardless of overbore or underbore.

No. Same paint -> same accuracy as long as the barrel and marker aren't damaged or broken.
