Paintballs:
field paint only where i play, so dunno
Strengths: it works
Weaknesses: can be a pain with large , cheap paint. Shape
Review: Nice barrel, works just like all the others. Has a small bore which for me I find doesn't go well with field paint. For me, in my setup, I break a lot in the barrel. My AA is much more field paint friendly. When the paint matches it, works fine.
I don't like the shape (personal preference) I like a smooth barrel, no bumps, no ridges, nologos.
Conclusion: It's allright, depends on if you like busy looking gear or not.

Only barrel for my mag ive owned.

Recommended
Paintballs:
I used some PMI balls my field orders with there own shell color and paint so people cant bring similer paint and it worked excellent
Strengths: Its light. Has a perfect effective length of the barrel. It is extremely accurate.. it is the only barrel i have owned for an automag but compared to my piranha with a boomstick it blows it away.
Weaknesses: Has a big step in the tip so you need a barrel sock or some longer barrel plug. Theres not much wrong with this barrel besides that it is very hard to find for an automag
Conclusion: Excellent barrel im never going to buy a different barrel for any gun i own. Im sold to lapco. have a nice day i really enjoy lapco products

Paintballs:
It says to use smaller bore paintballs, such as Marballizer and Diablo.
Strengths: I have heard many testimonies that this barrel is great, I can see how it can be, the design of this thing is great. Only few porting holes at the end deliver great gas efficency (when matched with the right paint) and better range. So far my experience hasnt been as great as other people's.
Weaknesses: I played with this barrel over the weekend using RPS All Star (supposedly really small) and RPS Polar Ice (was smaller than all star when doing paint test). I had more ball breaks than I suppose many of you had. Granted 2 of them were my fault, I short stroked my trigger. However, this barrel did shoot throught the paint really well (unless there is shell in the barrel) . I hope to get better performance, maybe it doesn't like RPS paint. Maybe it was just too damn cold (I live in Michigan, its like 15 degrees here). I have my cocker running at about 400 psi (stock), Im not sure it that was too high for the paint .
Conclusion: My experience so far isnt as great as others, but I am going to try some other paints, adjust my gun and report back becaue I think this barrel deserves a second chance.

Strengths: The price is good for someone looking to move beyond their stock barrel.

The Autospirit is a small bore barrel. It is accurate with small bore paint. I was able to shoot Proball successfully through it.
Weaknesses: The barrel almost demands small bore paint. Using PMI Premium on two separate fields was a near disaster. It think I would have been better off with the M98's stock barrel.
Conclusion: The Autospirit works wonders from play during private off the field play. So long as you can buy your own paint and match the size to the barrel, you'll be fine.

I don't recommend this as a first choice for barrel upgrades. Players who hit the fields and cannot control their paint choice will be hurting.

If you're a collector of barrels (I try not to be), then the Autospirit is a decent choice for small bore paint. Besides that...nothing fancy or special.

Honestly, I haven't figure it out yet
Strengths: light weight, good looks, reasonable price, extremely efficient--shot count will go way up.
Weaknesses: Not accurate, loud, appears to be too tight and must have internal flaws
Conclusion: I think I must have gotten a bad one. It'll shoot very accurately at 210 fps, but turn it up to 275 or higher and it shoots like the barrel is wet. Both my cocker and my bm are very lo pressure, or I'm sure it would break balls like crazy. I have run nothing but fresh All star and Marbs through it, and neither seem to fit. In the last year I've played with it maybe a half dozen times, and every time I end up pulling it off, throwing my carbon fiber on, having a better time and swearing the Lapco is going to storage. This is it. I've had it with the thing. I give it a 5 because the price was right and it is very efficient. I get 1200 plus with my cocker and a 68 3K tank. But if you want to shoot faster than 210 fps, forget about it. I can't recommend it. All the barrels listed above are more accurate.
