I might make Orangechicken's day by saying this but I am really liking the Disruptive death touch barrel and it seemed very quiet when compared to other barrels in a video I watched.

 

P.S. I'm gonna fix my sig bigx...lol

My only problem with the disruptive barrel is that there is no 14" model and I don't know if I would like 15 or 13" better. I wanted something shorter than my 16" CP but I'm worried that 13" is too short.

Ok this video proves that the disruptive barrel is the one for me. Now, I still don't know if I should get 13 or 16 inches?

All that video shows is that the Disruptive barrel was quieter - in that test - by a barely perceptible amount. I would strongly suggest you don't base your decision on that alone.

For what its worth Justin, if you're playing snake corner a slightly longer barrel like the 15" will not be a disadvantage IMO. In fact I somewhat prefer longer barrels due to the better pointing and easier bunker manipulation but that is something that comes down to the particular person.

I knew you guys were going to think I was basing my decision off of sound alone. That isn't the only reason and I know its a very small amount of difference and all that. I like the Disruptive barrel because of the look and the whole recessed porting and just the overall barrel itself seems good. I do agree with you Playdoh on the length issue. I think 13" is way too short IMO and I think I'll go with the 15" even though its only a little shorter than my CP. Also, was it .686 you said would b the best bore? I don't really want to have to buy other backs if I can avoid it.

I do like the .686 but I say get a 13 inch. The smaller the better and it is more maneuverable just ask the lady.

Eh, in the world of widespread supair bunkers I dont know if I agree. 16 to 13 is a pretty big jump too.

The stock barrel on my G6r is a 14 inch .685 One Piece that is machined by CP for BL... Thing shoots darts. 

 

 

Go with a 14 if you can find it. I have played with a 16 and personally I find it a tad too cumbersome especially when trying to play tight to a bunker. 14 is the perfect barrel length imo.

I've owned most barrels and kits out there. Now i've simplified to having 2x lurker one piece barrels. They shoot well, clean well when a ball breaks, pretty light, and decently quiet.

I no longer use freak 2piece kits as there are 3 things that need to be perfectly bored and ligned up. Looking down the front of a freak I rarely can say the insert looks perfect.

Owned and ranked after lurker:

Cp 2piece kit - the standard for good quality barrels, louder than the pipe kit
Kaner kit - not sure why the large price really on par with cp, smooth honed
Evil pipe kit - very quiet, pretty smoothbore, pain to separate halves
Freak kit - used to need different threaded backs, most now are a/c threaded aa fronts were quiet, but didn't clean well
Empire? 2piece kit - honing quality behind the evil pipe; sound just behind the cp kit
Angel A1 kit - used to know who made these, doesn't matter as I never used the A1 for a single game and sold it for parts ;)

Dye ul - larger bores on all of mine, but shoot oddly well really smooth bore
Bob long one piece - have a bunch of these, all oversized for the paint I shoot smoothish honed
J&j ceramic - haven't used one for 12 years must be a good reason I remember these

I refuse to buy carbon fiber barrels so no short review on those sorry.

Also, it's 15 inches. Which is what I use. And is a fairly nice size.

How does it sound compared to anything else you have owned and hows the honing?

You probably won't ever even notice the difference in honing or sound between most of these barrels.

OK my only problem with a new CP front is that I don't like the very tip where it is wavy. Also, my barrel back is kinda old because the previous owner just gave me a random barrel and the black anodizing doesn't quite match the front. So is it still worth it to get a whole new CP barrel or should I look into a freak kit or something else?

I'd still get a 14" CP front. If you don't like the wavy bits, then spend the extra cash for the Dynasty version. It doesn't have those ribs.

Ok....I'm not happy seeing the Disruptive packaging and anodizing stuff. I think I'll look into the Lurker barrel.

I don't know whether to get the 1 piece .684 Lurker is gloss black or the 2 piece .684 Lurker in Dust Black. I would rather a gloss black 2 piece .684 because I believe in one of mikes videos he said that you should get a 2 piece for the 14" and up barrels due to slight size difference in the front portion of 1 piece barrels. The problem is, they only sell a .684 2 piece in dust black and I would want it in gloss.

 

Should I go with the .684 2 piece in dust black or should I settle for the 1 piece .684 in gloss black?

You do realize that both barrels both the 1 piece and the 2 piece will have be stepped up to .695 at the porting regardless of how many pieces there are.

The only reason to go for the 2-piece is if you have some kind of case that can only carry the 2-piece.

2-piece barrels are easier to clean and Lurker has updated some features like the porting. With a two piece you also have the option of buying additional backs later. The difference in appearance is minimal between the two anyway and the mattet eigenbarrels actually have a better exterior quality IMO anyway.

No, I didn't know that. You learn something new everyday :D.

 

Also, I like the 2 piece .684 better and I think that is what I want because it is easier to clean and I could change the backs if desired, as BurningPlaydoh stated and I will take his word on the quality of the barrel because he has owned the Lurker barrel and I think he's a pretty stand up guy from talking to him on the mystical device called Xbox. Thanks everyone!

Freak is not the best at shooting out breaks, the freak jr tip is decent at it, but the AA tip has a heck of a time shedding paint.  I usually can tell just by looking at the porting on barrels.  Simple porting with small holes will be slightly louder, but shoot out a break better, while complex porting seems to hold paint longer, but it's usually quiet.
