I am looking into a 16" or 20" Smart Parts tactical barrel for my MR1. Before you all yell at me for even thinking 20", my friend just got a 20" barrel and it works pretty well. Im just wondering if anybody has experience with either of these barrels and if it performs well.

Well, I know you said not to yell at you, so I'll say it calmly. I would stick with a 14" barrel. Personally, I think anything longer than that is a waste of gas and isn't improving your accuracy enough to make it worth it. It also makes it more of a hassel when your on the move.

As for experience with the SP Tactical I have none, so hopefully someone else can help you there.

I agree totally. Unless you are a sniper then it will make it harder to move around cover and staying tight while doing it.

Im not really a sniper, but im not one of the guys up front pressing the attack either. im kinda in between. I pick my shots carefully until i see an opening and then ill go on the offensive.

And by the way, I meant to say that the 16" barrel is actually 14". The front 2" are flash suppressor and dont come in contact with the ball.

don't get that. Save up for a barrel kit like a hammerhead. You will be amazed at the accuracy difference.

20" barrels are only good for 2 things, scaring the **** out of noobs and scaring the **** out of the guy at the filll station.

this is the first time someone has actually said what i have always said. you da man. props to you. anything over 16" is a total waste. doesnt help with accuracy and wastes co2. get a good barrel that is 16" at the most. dont waste your money on anything more. or you are doing that exactly, wasting your money.

The SP Tac Barrel is really light. Well, to me it is.

Grab and hold a Stiffi in one hand (the CF barrel, you sick minded fools!) and your 20" in the other. You'll feel the weight difference right away.

well I have the 20" and I have no problem with it whatso ever far as im concerned its a good barrel. I deffinatly agree a barrel kit is the way to go but as for this particular barrel there is nothing wrong with it at all. for the langth it is suprisingly light (compaired to what your thinkin when you see it) and you lose like 20 shots a tank big deal doubt you will even notice.
if you wnat it there is nothing wrong with it at all its a good barrel. However for the amount you spend on it save up a little more and get a barrel kit. If you just want to know if its good then yes I have no problem with it at all if you want it get it.

The one thing that no one has mentioned is that a 20" barrel has more porting ans is quieter. One of my Teammates has an X7. He uses a Smart Parts Tactical 20", and a Smart Parts Progressive 14" The 14"er is easier to move around, but the 20"er is way quieter

I have the16 inch on an MR4 and i love it i used a lapco bigshot 14 inch and this was a big improvement over it. The 16 is much quiter and i havent noticed any decreased efficancy, I had to decrease the velocity actually to get the same distance so i would say that it is more efficiant.
