Any, it doesn't matter this barrel is so frickin accurate
Accurate, Durable, Dependable, Scratch Resistant
The moment you shoot your first paintball out of this gun you'll see a major improvement in your accuracy and distance of your shots. Most barrels curve the paintball when you fire a long distance, not with this barrel. You can fire well over 75 ft and still be accurate. The best part of this barrel is that when ever this punk sticks his head up you snipe them right in the face. I've killed more people with this barrel then ever before. The Barrel is expensive, the kit even more but the accuracy you achieve is rediculous, this will make even the biggest noob a force to be reckoned with on the feild of battle. Don't buy any other Barrel, this one is just that good. If you want the best accurace though buy the barrel kit for 200. It's worth every penny.
Buy this before you buy anything else for this is the standard by which all barrels shall be judged from now on.
red dot site
68 4500psi tank
Quality paintballs is all ive used
They all work great,shoots DAMN straight!!!!!!!!!!!
Precision honed,back & front line up perfect
kinda loud.....but still quiets the A-5 down
no 16in. barrels(iv'e seen)
Great barrel, looks good, ausome(if thats how you spell it),accuracy,& lite wieght.
Accuracy is most important to me, when i got the snapshot along with a new HPA tank i set a 6in. wooden plank 90 ft. away(i measured it),laid in prone, turned on my red dot & shot 5x
all 5 hit exsactly where my site was, the last one moved about an inch to the right.Thats very good!!!! Then I shot about 20 balls about 9(bps)onto my garbage can from about 80 ft & got a 5-6in. grouping, pretty impressive at a ways away, considering APG magazing tests at 60ft.,(i believe), & 4in. grouping with like, an Autococker.
Good job Lapco!
GREAT BARREL !!!! recommend it to anyone. I have to give it a 10, it out shoots a flatline any day for all you "flatline lovers"........because i used to be one!!!!

A.P.E TA5 Rampage Board (25 BPS)
JCS Dual trigger
Palmer male regulator
Trinity on/off rail ASA
20 oz C02 with On/Off
Lapco Snapshot kit
Maddmann spring Mods
JCS Rear Velocity Adjuster
Any, because I can match the proper paint to bore.
Light but solid
5 star quality
Quieter than my freak kit
Quality is at its peak with Lapco's new snapshot barrel kit. When I opened the package for the first time and held one of the backs, I immediately could feel the quality; solid, balanced, perfectly honed; something you would have to experience for yourself. This barrel is very accurate compared to my 16"freak kit; it blows Smart parts out of the hemosphere. This is the barrel I am sticking with because frankly, there is not a better barrel out there. The best $200 bucks I have ever invested in an upgrade.
.687, .689., 693 backs
hard plastic case with foam padding.
UPDATE JAN 20 2006
Still the best barrel kit money can buy....I guarantee it! People drool when they see the barrel in person.
They always ask....."what kind of barrel is that?" or "Holy SH!T, WHAT THE HECK IS THAT?" Then they pick it up and they instantly say "Wow, does that ever feel like a quality barrel!" Then they put the barrel on their A-5 and take a few hundred shots.
"How much do you want for the barrel, Mark?"
"It's not for sale"
LAPCO FOR LIFE!
The absolute must in upgrading an A-5 is replacing the stock barrel. This barrel kit is awesome. If you cannot decide between a freak kit or the snapshot kit, do not hesitate to go for the snapshot, you will not regret it. Flawless....Good job Lapco!
A-5 FOR LIFE
LAPCO FOR LIFE
If I could I would give it a 15 out of 10.

Tippmann 98 Custom w/ Snapshot, Car Stock, Riccochet AK, Custom Drop Forward And trigger And Too Much More To Explain
The Only Weakness Is The Price
This Barrel Is the best barrel so far by Lapco It has almost perfect accuracy, good distance, and looks pretty cool. Also you can buy a kit for an even better barrel.This Barrel is about 115$$ so i suggest you go buy it if your looking for an amazing barrel
Alot of different barrels but nothing close to the snapshot not even the evil pipe or driver
Very acurate( unreal)
None so far.
The cost of it but u get what you pay for.
I love my snapshot. It is the best barrel i have ever used or seen. The price is pretty expensive but like i said u really get what you pay for. The only bad thing is the price and i think that the barrel gets cold faster that others but it does not efect the barrel.
I reccomend it to anyone. Because it is very acurate and it is very durable.
Lapco Snapshot Barrel Kit
Pro Team Hyper Star Bolt
Lapco Offset Sight Mount
Pro Team SAW Stock
32Degrees Coiled Remote line
Any paint works great! (as long as its not terrible quality)
Expensive? (you get what you pay for!)
I actually have the Snapshot kit, which was very expensive, but worth it. My accuracy is amazing. From about 75-100 feet I shot the pole on a chain-link fence - first try. I have gotten more head shots with this barrel than in my entire paintball history! As for durability, I tripped once, and jammed it into a rock, and it didn't even scratch! (I was afraid to look at it I fell so hard on it I thought that it would be mutilated).
Another plus is that you can put the lapco air cooled machine gun shroud on it, if you like that look.
Get one! This is probably the best barrel you can get for your A5.
None. The stock barrel is to laugh at after you've shot this barrel.
New Spyder Imagine (Green)
12 v rev.- view loader
20 oz pure energy tank
lapco snapshot 14" barrel
RPS Advantage Super Swirl work pretty well
Accuracy!Looks!Accuracy!Accuracy!Quiet gun by a large amount.
The cleaning can be tricky if you're picky.
This barrel is a great upgrade. Dont even think about passing it up! It is extemely accurate, it adds distance, and it simply look tight. This barrel will not let you down. I found this 120$ barrel for 85$ online so shop around for a good deal. Don't let money be an issue with this thing, you'll be glad you invested!
This Barrel is a must! I shot my gun with the stock barrel from 75FT away onto a 2 1-2'by 3' box and sometimes missed and with this barrel, I stood about 100 to 130 ft away and shot onto a tree 7" thick in about a 6" diameter 4 out of 5 times. I was nervous about this prodect but it did not dissapoint me. I busted paint to see how hard it was to clean because of the drilled holes but to my surprise, a toothpick can work wonders. This gun also cut the noise of my gun easily in half!

i tested my friend's Lapco Snapshot and my other friend's CP 2 piece. My friends CP 2 piece was so much more accurate with Evil Paintballs, not to mention the CP was cheaper. My friend now isnt satisfied with it seeing how good the CP 2 piece was
Dont get the snapshot, it is overpriced and you wont get the accuracy you paid for. Get the CP 2 piece if you want to get a good 2 piece barrel
A-5 with a lapco Snapshot and a 32 degrees drop on it
evil paintballs have worked great with all the barrels i have had on my A-5
marbs are still good but i prefer evil
I have played many games with this and I'll tell you this thing is the best barrel for what ever type of paintball you play. It is extremly good in the woods thou because it wont make the ball curve like most barrels do. I can lob the paintballs and knock people out when most people cant even come close. Its a great barrel.
The barrel is very accurate. At about 15 yards i can hit a pole that is only an inch and a half thick. i can keep hitting this pole as long as i dont move the gun. The barrel is better then the bigshot and the Dye barrels that i have used. The dye barrels are accurate for a short while but tend to curve off target. The snapshot never makes the ball curve, even at very long ranges.
The only bad thing about this barrel is it cost alot of money. Lapco has usually been very cheap with their barrels but this one is alot. But the price is defently worth it thou. So all and all the Barrel has no real weakness.
If you want to go all out and get the best barrel you can, i say go for the snapshot. But if your low on cash the lapco bigshot is almost as good. Dye makes a good barrel but the snapshot is the best in my book.
This Barrel is great. Before using this barrel, my main barrel was a Lapco bigshot. ( a great barrel for 50 bucks) It is a lot quieter and more accurate. The rance is also a lot better. This barrel is about the same as the Ultralite, but I believe it is more durable constructed with higher standards and in a more advanced method...since it was from a solid billet ( solid block of aluminum) WIth the beadblasted finish that i recieved on mine, I have noticed it seems to be more scratch resistant. My cousin has an ultralite, and it is scratched already from one weekend of use. (scratches on a 100+ barrel are a travesty)
This barrel is great. For the price, it is WHAT YOU PAY FOR. This is a great upgrade.
Quiet, Accurate, long Distance, and great looking on my A-5.
Save your Money, Buy the Snapshot, Never ever buy another barrel again.
