i just got a spyder pilot acs, and wanted to get recommendations on a good cheap paint to use for it, along with a barrel recommendations. i was thinking about the empire revolver, and i used visible impact until now, and was wondering if i should continue..

Accuracy is based off of paint more to barrel bore match.
If you have the money, id get a barrel kit like the freak.
How much money do you have to spend? that would help us alot to find out what your price range is

right now id like to stay under 50.. such as the J&J... eventually id like to get something nice for like 100 (ie the revolver).. but right now im going to be using stingers or visible impact, and need a barrel to work well with them, however should i need to use field paint, then id need it to accomodate that as well..

visible impact works and fits my jnj ceramic well...shoots pretty straight as long as the paints fresh

i think im gonna keep the stock one for now.. i used it on saturday and it was shooting visible impact and monster balls straight... im using stinger next weekend so we'll see how that goes.

Stinger is amazing paint for the price, and J n J are a great company, and have made great products in my experiance.
If you go after a barrel kit check the B/S/T for a used freak barrel, once you get the back and front, you can find them really cheap if you shop around, you can piece together an insert kit, suggestions are .689 and .691, those 2 inserts will pretty much cover most paint you'll be shooting. I'd avoid the empire revolver kit honestly. Stinger is a really good "cheap" paint and field use wise does very well.

Revolvers are only $55 on ebay BNIB. Im pretty sure you can get a pipe kit for $50 on firstcall

I don't have any barrel recommendations but some good cheap paint for the stock barrel is the Visible Impact paint. You can buy it from Wal-Mart for an ok price. Nice shape, good shell thickness, and very visible pink paint. I use it a lot.

i've got my set up as the ACS with a teardrop barrel, lapco feedneck, and im looking to upgrade my trigger.. i generally use visible impact and stinger for paint now except when i have field paint left over (like now).

I wouldn't recommend Stinger paint. When I used it, it was really hard shelled and it had some pretty bad dimples, so it was inaccurate and it had tons of bounces.

when i used it, it was smooth, brittle, and had a nice fill
