I suggest the J+J. Very good quality at a cheap price.

Just about any aftermarket barrel is going to be better than stock.
That being said, a barrel kit that allows you to choose barrel diameter to match paint is most accurate and most expensive. Next is a one piece fixed size barrel; cheaper and less accurate. Beyond these 2 basic categories are barrel material. Some claim that the carbon fiber barrels are better than metal, and some even claim that brass barrels are superior to aluminum.
I feel, like many others, that a good quality one piece barrel is sufficient enough for paintball- especially on a lower end marker like a pilot that can only achieve a certain level of performance.
I have a J&J S2 and it works fine for me. I also have a Smart Parts Linear that works just as well on another percussion/blowback marker I own. Good luck.
