made my barrel bigger lol
hard as hell to put in
Ok i wanted to put a new barrel on my tippman 98 custom so i bought this adapter to Spyder 2 M98c, And a SmartParts TearDrop 12in Barrel. Ok the 1st thing is when i tried to screw it in it wouldnt go all the way it so i had to take my gun apart to put it in and WOW it works fine i was amazed tho because of the way i had to put it in i traces the treads on the adapter then on my stock barrel and the adapter went the other way then my barrel anyways i got it in my gun screwed on my new barrel and shot it.....and OMG! i love this thing if i ever get another barrel adapter it will be this kind i dont know why but i just like it plus it looks really good on my gun!
this is a good product to change ur barrel and make it look and shot alot better!

Also AKA Viking with a few goodies
Being able to use 1 good barrel system on 2 markers
The adapter plus the back plus the long front can make a long barrel
To start off with, I wanted the barrel system that I bought for my viking to work on my 98c because I couldn't get a Kaner for tippmann 98c. So I bought a Lapco cocker to 98 adapter, and so far couldn't be happier. It fits very snug and is right on target with accuracy. Shooting the Viking and then the 98c with adapter, the accuracy is pretty much the same. As far as breaks - None in 100 rounds tested. My next choice for barrel system would have been The Pipe since I tested it and liked it pretty much and they cost around $175 for the 98c. So I guess I saved around $160 by buying the adapter and didn't notice any decrease in performance. Thats a few cases of good paint!
I would recommend buying this product to save $ instead of buying an expensive barrel or system. But I wouldn't buy this to switch a J&J ceramic back and forth between two markers.

Ability to interchange barrels and play with small balls
Small ID; Short length
This adapter does what it's supposed to. You can fit multiple barrel types on you gun(s) without having to buy extra barrels for each gun. It's biggest weakness is the small ID, IMHO. It's not very long (2" or so) so there is some concern about an increased potential for ball breakage and not having an "optimal" control bore length. Because of the small ID if these inserts, they'll work better with small balls than large. Probably should stay away from these if you're using old or very fragile balls, large caliber balls or playing in extremely cold weather. I have enough barrels for each of my guns so I don't need these for playing. I primarily use it with a Cobra barrel muffler whenever I want to test my guns at home.
Cheap alternative to buying a different barrel because you have a different gun or just want a smaller bore size. The overall effect on accuracy and incidence of ball breakage is not clear although it should be minimal if the appropriate ball/barrel size is selected.

This review is for the Lapco Autococker Barrel Sizer(s).
I have been using BLAZE paint with horrible results with the Boomy .688. It is difficult and expensive to get multiple barrels of different sizes or the Freak set, so I bought a .685 and .684 cocker barrel sizer.
The sizer solved my problem of inconsistent shots and balls rolling out of the barrel. It allowed me to turn down the operating pressure of the marker and increased the FPS (improving efficiency). The paint is now perfectly sized.
I shot 2000 rounds with insane consistency and accuracy without breaking any balls. What an unbelievable difference!
The threaded fit to the cocker is a little tight. But I have had no problems.
Awesome for autococker owners! For $14 a piece, you can now turn one Boomy, or any good barrel, into multiple bore sizes. Cheaper than a Freak system and perfect for anyone who needs flexibility with paint sizing.
It works awesome and is a fantastic alternative to those expensive barrel systems!
it worked (spyder-cocker)
tight fit to gun
too tight sometimes, and can be a pain to get off
gap between barrel and adapter on the inside
adds 1.5 inches or so to any barrel
I got mine for 11 bux, and it worked great, breaking only a few balls (which may have been my fault anyway). This allowed me to use any number of barrels me and my friend had, and didn't affect the accuracy to any great degree. If you are thinking of upgrading later and only want to buy your barrels once, it's a good choice. I bought it to use a barrel I got for half off (armson pro-series, a great barrel). it adds another part to clean during a break, but I can deal with it.
-The ability to use a barrel from one gun, onto another.
-It's made by Lapco, so you know your getting a good product
-Average price; $20, the best $20 you can use. it's like a savings of $80 (avg price of high end barrel) I paind $17
-Not a perfect fit. I found that if you run your finger through the barrel and touch the part where the barrel meets the barrel adapter, it is not a flush fit.
-I have a autococker, and I wanted to use my medium bore All-american barrel from my spyder. The AA barrel is a steped barrel meaning that the first few inches is acutally .688-.689, then the ported end of the barrel is a larger size. The Lapco Barrel adapter has a bore of .685 hella small. so now my barrel goes from .685 to .689 to whatever the ported bore is. I have a 2 step barrel now.
-I shoot powerball (medium bore paint) and have found nothing wrong with the smaller bore .685 barrel adapter. Let me tell you this barrel adapter works great. I would have bought a new DYE boomstick, but this saved me a hella lot of money.
-I highly recomend this to people who use 2 or more guns.

The best thing about any barrel adapter is the ability to use barrels that you have for one gun and love, on another you might buy later. The one that I bought for my Tippmann 98 to use Spyder barrels that I already had for my Scorpions saved me hundreds of dollars. The construction and quality are perfect, it matches the gun, and gives a seamless appearance to the barrel entering the gun, and I have easily shot 5000 rounds of paint through it with NO problems at all. I have used it on the 14" Nytestick, 14" Winforce, Armson stealth, and the 16" and 10" standard Accu-tip barrels that are standard on Scorpions, all with Spyder threads. Wonderful product.
Not one single thing.
If you are switching guns, and already have a favorite barrel or two for the old one, pick up this adapter for the old threads, you will not be sorry.
