Simple question

My question is quite simple and I was wondering what paint would work best for a CP 1 piece 12 inch black barrel with a bore size of .689??? Here are a few choices
1-PMI Evil
2-RPS Advantage
3-Zap Spank
4-JT J balls
5-Jt maxims

Thank you
Steve

Re: Simple question

Any one of those should be fine. My personal recommendation would be Evil - it's just damned good paint. I also like most paints by Draxxus/Diablo such as Blaze, Heat, Inferno or Dusk.

I agree. Evil is awesome paint. Any of those paintballs would be just fine though. But out of those, Evil is at the top.

Too young? I can remember when the song came out: my friend's older brother came home with that album on vinyl, put it on the turn table, and all three of us were fixed on the stereo... I was 8 years old.

...yeah - I'm that old.

OK, 'nuf reminiscin'... I've got a question of my own. This came up in a conversation over the weekend, and I didn't have an answer for it:

What was the first company to start making after-market barrels? And what markers did they cater to?

Hey, my math is pretty good.

Hmmm, I'm really not sure who first made an aftermarket barrel. Original paintball markers never had removable barrels, so it took awhile before the became adjustable.

I do know that Nelson was the first to sell paintballs (balls were actually made by RP Scherer). But my knowledge only goes that far.

I'm getting off topic a bit here, so I'll keep it to this question: Speaking of Nelson - Did the Nelspot 007 have any upgrades at all? I know that the rules of the first game stated that the upgrades had to be limited to a certain dollar amount (I think it was about $5.00...?), but what, other than home made, mods were available?

You unknowingly answered my follow-up question: who made the first paintballs? ...damn you're good.

Whats a good new or used barrel for like 50-70 dollars for an automag RT? Also, are freak system, empire kits, and evil pipe kits all that great? Or are they juss POS with good brand names? I know alot of people are like freaks are god, but other people say the insertrs warp. So would it be better to save up for a high end barrel kit?

You could get a UL for 50-70 used. Bourne is selling a UL for the 'Mag, I think. Check it out.
