Well, the only one I was thinking of was the one I've been seeing at Walmart and some sporting goods stores... i believe brass eagle makes it...

..but yeah...a friend of mine put that on his tippman 98 and...yeah it's bad; You would be better off buying a J&J Ceramic for $30 ...it's about 10 times the quality

I'm using a barrel off from a 32 Degree Rebel. It's shorter than the original MR1 but it's (my opinion) more accurate..

Stiffi Barrels. (They work A++++)

They are a tad bit pricey but they are worth it. Also, never use a swab on them. Only squeegies.

Length has no say in accurasy. Length of the barrel only increases range by a few feet at most.

Accurasy is due to a good paint/barrel match or bore size matchup.

I just got a 14" Smart Parts Linear for my MR1. I've noticed a slight reduction in noise and an obvious improvement in accuracy at 60ft and 100ft. It's rifled with ceramic and teflon coated. So it's self cleaning, but not quite as effective as the J and J, but for $35 I'm happy with the investment.:)
