About a year ago, I went paintballing for the first time. After going a couple times, I decided this was a sport for me and had to get my own marker. I was on a budget, so I picked up a Tippmann 98 Custom for $130, JT Raptor mask for $20, and a Proto 16 in barrel for $35 (even tho I was inexperienced, I knew a stock Tippmann barrel was terrible.) The next week, I got to try out my setup. When I twisted on the Proto barrel, I noticed it took some force to get all the way on. Not a very good barrel, I thought, until I took a few shots. My first few shots were a little erratic, but after maybe 20-30 shots I noticed a huge increase in accuracy. I could effectively hit targets out to about 70 yards and easily led my team in "kills". Pretty good as far as I've seen at resisting scratches, and is relatively quiet. Great barrel considering I got it for only $35.
If you are looking for a great barrel under $50, this is the best you will find.
