what are you trying to achieve from getting a new barrel to replace the stock barrel?

There's no "best." My choice would be the Deadlywind Fibur in 14" with a set of Freak inserts. Smurfinator's question is a good one, though. At most, a barrel kit might get you a little better air efficiency...on the order of 10 or 15% with a tight underbore. But that's it. No increase in accuracy or consistency.

The reason why we ask is because barrel upgrades are usually pointless unless the barrel is broken. Accuracy depends on paint quality and marker cleanliness not barrels.

To answer you question I say get a freak kit but it is more cost effective to get a single bored barrel for your needs. Sure you can have multiple barrel inserts but you will generally only use 2 to 3 of them out of the whole kit.

I will agree and disagree with this. A god 14 inch barrel will be easier to point therefore make aim better. The mini stock barrel is 10-12 inches long. A bit short for most people. Any quality 14 inch barrel is probably all this poster really needs. Make aiming easier

The MacDev Shift kit is almost always pretty good.

You can buy a cp two piece, one 14 inch front and several backs for your needs
If you are under 18 and pay for your gear put this in your sig

I say the GOG freak kit, I absolutely love it. I usually use practice grade paint and the accuracy is on point, very tight groupings and very consistent and plus the entire idea of just switching inserts is cool (at least I think). Hope tht helped.

Time for the obligatory BARRELS DO NOT AFFECT ACCURACY

yes they do, longer barrels have tighter groupings at longer distances than shorter ones

So having longer smooth metal tube for the paintball to be propelled down magically affects the trajectory they take through the air?

Ha.

You could just get a CP two piece barrel and a couple of barrel backs if you need to change bore sizes.
