Hello everybody! for those of you who dont know me My name is David Voortman, and I am Owner of Flasc Paintball, a Canadian Company that specialises in producing highly customisable MilSim barrel systems and kits.

My reason for being here today is that Ive had a few people ask me about an aftermarket barrel for the T4 recently, We have made a 8/9 Barrel and the 8.1/9.1 barrel is to be released in the next week or two, but a t4 barrel hasn't really been considered until recently due to the very small number of T4 markers in existence (only a few hundred) I am more then willing to provide a small run for the Niche market as long as I have at least some confidence I will not be stuck with a bunch of barrels that will not move for me to sit on. Flasc does cater specifically to MilSim players, and I beleive that fits in exactally with the Tiberius line, which is why were looking a little bit deeper into the T4 barrel possibility in a limited run scenario.


So if you own a T4 and would be interested in an aftermarket barrel for one please post here, I am also watching a similar forum on MilSim Empire.


I don't know how familiar people here at techPb are with the Flasc barrel line so I will give a quick bit of info so you know what you can expect from a Flasc T4 barrel if released, as I dont think its really fair to ask if you would be interested in a barrel, if you dont know what the barrel will be composed of or capable of through a Milsim Eye.

I believe that Flasc makes the most customisable barrels currently on the market, Our barrels are all front threaded to allow one (or sometimes more) of many barrel tips and extensions. Our extensions come in 3" or 5" lengths and are also front threaded, the extensions also allow you to choose your own porting method be it no porting, standard porting (4 rows) or heavy porting (8 rows) so you can even customise length and porting on a single barrel, plus what tips you want to use which can effect range, volume, efficency, or just plain look good Posted Image. Im trying to keep this short and informative and not advertisement length so I will leave the general description there for now.







Here are a few tips we offer and all would be compatible with any Potential T4 barrel

Posted Image(Cannoniser)
Posted Image(apex ready tip, Obviously only usable when using regular paintballs, not first strike)
Posted Image(wirecutter tip)
Posted Image(4 prong tip)
Posted Image(Blaster Tip)
Posted Image(fake suppressor with removable shroud)
Posted Image(3" and 5" extensions, (these are measured differently then barrels, rather then front to back, these are measured by how much they extend the total barrel length, shown are 2 of 7 total extensions)

and here are 2 Tips that will be released before or alongside the T4 barrel this summer, currently only prototypes)
Posted Image(unnamed prototype set for future release (will be before or with a T4 barrel)

Posted Image(unnamed prototype set for future release (will be before or with a T4 barrel)


While we cant put a price on it yet as these polls are the very first step to see if there is even a desire for these barrels so we have not gone very far on this yet, but the wide range would be between $50 and $90) our T8 and T8.1 barrels have been priced at $49.99 and the T4 would likely be higher do to barrel length, intricacy and small size of the run itself, but at this point, I cant give a concrete price yet, but we do try and price all our items reasonably and will not "jack" the price of a product just because no one else offers it, just not how we do business.


T4 owners posting in the poll would be appreciated, but I would also value any comments questions or concerns you may have also t4 owner or not

Thanks everyone!

I dont think there are that many t4 users ANYWHERE. :rolleyes: Im sure a lot of people find it hard to justify spending $800 when a $350 t9 does the same thing. I dont see the market being big enough to support barrel upgrades and stuff yet :)

Good luck!

well ive had a bunch of email requests, so I figured id try out a few forums, TechPb actually was the only forum where I didnt get any replies from t4 Owners, that said the other forums (even Tiberius forums) didnt have enough people interested anyways, so I think you would be right

im not a t4 owner yet but im am looking into getting one (if any are available in the UK)
have you done any trails with the FS rounds and a T4 prototype to establish the bore needed and what porting and tip vents would have a positive effect on the round ?
i would prefer to go with a long one piece FS specific barrel with 3 or 4 style variations max - a silencer one that worked well would sell and could mean more sales of the T4 to those wanabee snipers who dont want 20bps heading for them after their first shot ;)

i was thinking about the Qloader pod design and wondered if a nice snug FS barrel with anticlockwise rifling would cause the FS round to start spinning clockwise in the barrel as the air tries to escape past the fins down the rifling and with suitable porting would it increase the accuracy/range

are you guys going to make kits for other markers too ? Smart Parts SP1

Here is what interests me ...

a) Considering that paint gets smaller, will we see .675 and .670 barrels from FLASC?
B) Do you have autococker threaded barrels, too?

Please excuse my ignorance. I am not very familiar with your barrel system, although I applaud you on the combined ideas. A long control bore, changeable porting, Apex on-demand, clean lines without unneccessary cosmetic milling, dust black colour ... now, you would have made my perfect barrel if you had a CF tip and bore sizes in the .670 - .679 ranges. It looks very good, though. And sorry for hijacking the thread like this. :D

Flasc makes cocker barrels in many sizes but right now there are no plans for a .675 or .670 barrel, even out .678 barrel spends most of its time sitting on the shelf, the best selling sizes are .687 and above, if there was demand for a smaller barrel and people actually started purchasing the smaller bore sizes then it will happen, but until then the smallest will be the .678

.678
.681
.684
.687
.690
.693
.696

I will try and get some better pictures this weekend, but the first prototype is ready, going to do some more testing and once we get a full list of any tweaks we need to make to get it perfect we will be putting it into production, our goal is to have them ready sometime in October. Barrel will be 14" long with Flasc Gen2 porting starting at 9.5"

Sounds amazing. cannot wait to get my hands on one. I like the fact that i can add barrel extensions to it and get a very nice, high quality long barrel. Keep us posted! :D
