Use smaller bore, like everyone else before me said.
Looks very nice, Shoots straight
A little heavy, kind of loud, porting is localized in one sport.
Well basically this is the twin of the Lapco big shot...this could also be known as the Little shot....or maybe Little to Medium shot....but we'll stick with autospirit for now. This came with my minimag that i bought used, but everything was in great condition. I was just shooting around in my backyard at trees and my fence. I wasn't shooting high quality paint so i'll compare it to how my J&J performed. i've owned a J&J on a tippmann and now i own one on a Minimag. I'm in love with my J&J so much so that it should be illegal. I am very biased towards them just so you know, but i will try and give a good review. well basically the autospirit performed really well. i didnt do a whole lot of measuring of what i was shooting at or the grouping so i'll give rough estimates. i shot about 4 or 5 different brands of paint through the barrels (kick'n mettalix, zap field paint, JT maxim 2, some viewloader sparkle stuff, and some BE blue streak (more like lethal bullets)) well anyways since i was shooting a bunch of different stuff through this at the same once you would think the balls would go every which way.
at like 25 feet away, i was shooting at a slide in my yard and the ball groupings were about the the same....like 1x1 foot square
at about 75 feet i'd say the J&J was a 2 foot square and the lapco was a 3 foot square.
there is also a difference in the length of the two barrels so that could have affected performance. one thing i didnt check which i had was breaking a ball in the barrel...i had no breaks. but i know from experience breaking a ball in the J&J cleans out really well with a couple shots.
ok..so it might have seemed like i was rating the J&J more, but my mind jumps around. Basically all i have to say is, it's a good barrel, mine came with the gun so i don't know about price, i think the J&J is better with price. the barrel looks classy and shoots well so i give it a 9

Whatever you like that fits
Nice finish both outside and inside the bore
Not very accurate
Ok now maybe I got a bad barrel but on my gun I have never had great success with the autospirit barrel. They are louder than most barrels but nothing that is significant. For the price they arent bad it is just that they arent that good. I have tried numerous brands of paint with this barrel and none of the paint was anywhere close to being as accurate as my freak or cp barrels. I actually liked the stock barrel better. I also seemed to break more paint in this barrel than with my other barrels but I play in colder weather so maybe that was it. But my main reason for not liking it is that I am not impressed with its accuracy at all. I have used my friends autospirit on my cocker and it always did the same thing. I would recommend buying a cp barrel or go all the way and buy a freak or multi bore barrel. But dont buy this
Even though I recommend that you buy another barrel I will still give this barrel an 8 because the quality was good both outside and inside but I just didnt like the accuracy results that I got from this barrel. Once again buy a cp they are way better for the money and look a lot sweeter. IMO
It'll fire just about anything you put through it.
accurate, stylish, and a great price at only $50
I was using my stock barrel on my 98 custom and it got the job done, but then I decided I wanted something more. I tried my friends autospirit and i had to buy one. These barrels simply rock. This barriel is super accurate. fired 10 shots from about 50 feet away and got a tight grouping. Plus with an average price tag of 50 bucks how can you say no to it.
It is a must have for anyone who wants to increase their accurracy and do it for a low price.
9 out of 10

For an autococker this barrel is all that is needed. And at the price you can buy a bigshot and still the overall cost is less then many others. It shoot straight and is very light. It can be had in aluminum black and nickel. It can hold its own against anyother barrel
nitro duck mega reg 68/3000

It is lightweight, and very efficient. This barrels shoots darts with diablo paint, which is a relatively small paint. Decent quietness. this barrel is very cheap, and performs identically to a dye boomstick. I recommend this barrel for anyone looking for an accurate barrel.
Its kinda ugly.
This barrel is great, stop buying boomsticks and buy this. it is just as accurate, and it is more efficient too.
-Great Price-was only $40 at local paintball store
-Borrowed it one day's games because i forgot my barrel and it was decently quiet, very light, and i was getting almost as many shots out of it as my AA and that cost me double.
-Only broke 1 ball the whole day out of about 1000 shots
-If you break a ball the thing starts to curves like crazy so that was kinda stupid.
-I was playin in a wooded field and it got scratched pretty easy
-nuthin really bad to say about it besides these, dont know much about reliability because i only tested it.
For a 40 buck barrel it was very nice and i would reccomend it to anyone who really doesnt want to go out and spend a fortune on a barrel. Dont worry about the rich punks who gave it a 3 just because they have a cocker that costs 1000 bucks and are spoiled. For just trying it out i was really impressed.

Smaller paint is recomended. I shot 32 degrees team colors through it and it handled them perfectly.
It's actually a nice little barrel. It's 11.5 inches long with porting at about the 11 inch mark.
It's very light. I tested it on a spyder and the spyder is a very light marker and this barrel added very little to the overall weight. I was impressed with the accuracy - just as good as the all american.
I broke one ball out of a hopperfull and I was shooting pretty fast so I would blame myself for the break rather than the barrel.
The porting was easy enough to clean - just snap it as you would a whip.
I have nothing bad to say about this barrel. I like it better than the DYE SS which is stupid heavy, better than the Teardrop which is a pain to clean, better than the stock barrel which is cheap and not as smooth nor long enough and better than the CP barrel (same threads, slighly longer) which probably could benefit from using slightly larger paint.
It's a nice barrel. Don't get discouraged by the overall ranking of this barrel.
I tested the All American, CP and the Aluminum AutoSpirit on the same marker, with the same paint and it's ever bit as good as the All American and better than the CP (although the CP would probably outperform both of these barrels if large paint was being used).
I'm giving it a 9. Nothing but a Palmer deserves a 10 in my opinion - as Palmer barrels tend to shoot every paint size well.
2000 WGP Autococker with Brass Eagle Eagleworks barrel, Lapco Autospirit barrel, and Lapco drop forward
Anarchy, something small bore
With the right paintballs, it is super accurate. I use one on my Autococker and it works like a dream. They are also inexpensive at just 60 bucks at Action Village. They are made for Angels, Mags, Cockers, Spyders, Shockers, and Model 98s. Lapco is a very good company..
It's a small bore barrel, and most paintballs out there are large bore paint. If you use large bore paint with this barrel, it will break paint like mad.
The barrel rock with the right paintballs. But why would you want to buy a small bore barrel when most paintballs are large bore. I would reccomend getting the Lapco Big Shot since it is for big bore paint. Or get both.
Stingray 2 w/ the following: Venturi Bolt, Lighter Pull Trigger Frame, Gas Through CAR M4A1 Shoulder Stock, Custom Made sight rail/carry handle (M4A1 style), LAPCO remora barrel adapter (spyder barrels to stingray), Custom made barrel shroud (M4A1 style again =-) ), And a PVC custom made silencer.
I also have a pimped out Tippmann with a LAPCO bigshot but I am tired of typing.
And a Spyder Shutter but I dont like Kingmann because all of their guns are the same (Tippmann is better)
Aluminum Material (Highly Durable)
Looks Good (Black Anodizing)
.687 caliber (Shoots Diablo Blaze beautifully!)
.687 caliber (not really bad) which means cant shoot .689 caliber paintballs well. LAPCO Auto Spirit is .687, LAPCO Bigshot is .689.
Other than that the Auto Spirit is an excellent barrel for everyone to buy...each and every dollar you spend on this is well worth it. I would take this over a DYE boomstick!! Not because it's better (There about the same I bet) but because it is way cheaper and worth your money.
If you cant commit to using Diablo Blaze paintballs all the time then I recommend the LAPCO Bigshot. Other than that this barrel is deadly accurate.
OVERALL: LAPCO barrels are Flatlines with out the range, yet without the hardships.
I used Diablo Dusk from Wal-Mart and it was dead on. Pretty light. Realtively quiet. Cheap, just as good as a Boomstick.
If you break a ball, all accuracy goes to hell. And i really mean hell, the balls curved like mad. But i heard this about the Bigshot too. Its not that much of a problem, just have a squeegee handy
Like i said before this thing is dead on with the RIGHT PAINT. Dont shoot brass eagle through this barrel or youre better off using a stock barrel. Another thing i liked about it is it seemed to be pretty quiet, it didnt really have that POP BANG POP sound with most co2 powered guns, it almost remined me of an Automag.
