Recommended
Paintballs:
Anything small to average bore.
Strengths: It shoots pretty straight and no breaks.

I've shoot small to mid size paintball and it handles all pretty well.

The paint I shot thru is Proball, Marb, and Diablo Blaze.

It looks very nice.
Weaknesses: I guess its a bit on the loud side but not the loudst.
It's heavy and a bit pricey, but I'm content with this product.
Conclusion: Try one.

Paintballs:
Small bore like the last batch of Blaze that was made from Diablo.
Strengths: Relatively cheap for a good quality barrel.
Accurate if matched to the right paint
Good for LP setup markers
Pretty easy to shoot through those occasional breaks
It's a Lapco
Weaknesses: On the loud side due to the ports are only at the ends. But better for effecient LP markers, you don't waste the air through ports prior to exit. Standard barrel plugs don't fit, same goes for the BigShot (.689).
Conclusion: I've used the SS and Aluminum version of this barrel on an Autococker and found that it is very accurate with the right paint. For the money, you can't beat the quality of this barrel. The Muzzle is a bit of a pain since regular barrel plugs don't work so it's either a Lapco plug or a condom.

Strengths: Accuate barrel for Marb paint-- small bore Priced right around $70 dollars If you like polished parts on your gun this barrel stands out.
Weaknesses: Barrel is alittle heavy in stainless--only comes in one size( 11.5 inch)--- only other problem- standard barrel plugs do not work with barrel you have to buy larger barrel plug.
Conclusion: You Like to shoot Small bore paint---Marb, El tigre,all star and so on ------ you should give barrel a try I think you will be suprized

Strengths: The Lapco barrel on my Automag is very accurate, but I think that has to do alot with the quality of paint. I try to stick with Proball, which seems to work well with this barrel. Its also very well machined. It looks like alot of time was spent making sure this barrel was perfect.
Weaknesses: It is definitely heavy. But, its thick piece of steel. The Lapco is relatively loud, but that doesnt really bother me. I have other barrels if I want something quiet.
Conclusion: The Lapco has a bore of .687 ( I think!). This is considered small, so stick with small, high quality paint. I've been having good luck with Proball. Lapco only sells these in 11.5" lengths, so don't waste time looking for a 14 inch Autospirt.
You can find these barrels for $79.99 on the internet, which is a bargain, to say the least. This is a great, accurate barrel, and its CHEAP! Why spend over a hundred on one of those "trendy" stainless barrels when you can get one thats probably better for less?
I don't have anything really bad to say about the Autospirit. Overall, I think its a great product, and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Strengths: Its accurate. Really accurate. Despite the small bore size, I've found that it shoots all types of field paint just fine. When you do have a brake in the barrel, it cleans out easy if you turn the gun upside down so that it is not feeding balls anymore and fire off some shots to blow the broken ball out.
Weaknesses: Its heavy (what do you expect, its made out of stainless steel) & its loud.
Conclusion: I got the 11.5 inch and have used it on a piranha and a spyder. I recomend it for both guns.

terminator, all american which totally blows this one outta the water!
Marker Setup: stock rebel deluxe, well except for my pull rod strut, thats my third one :)
Recommended
Paintballs:
anything thats pretty small, but not tooo small
Strengths: its about as accurate as the all american, but with alot less range, i think its because of the drag without porting
Weaknesses: REALLY LOUD, BAD RANGE compared to my stock rebel deluxe barrel and my all american
Conclusion: i say save up and get an all american or a boomstick, those are the only 2 piece barrels i've tried, they increase range and the accuracy is excellent

this barrel is really accurate, but its ONLY GOOD FOR SPEEDBALL i usually play in teh woods but i guess this would be ok for speedball, if you have a choisse though get the AA because its just as accurate and it is very very quiet

thanks
