100's of other people have recomended jj ceramics, because they are cheap, accurate, and quiet.

I love the Apex that would be my choice. But I would got to UMS and get the adapter and put it on a barrel kit. Then you have distance, and if you want turn the Apex off and you have unserpassed accuracy as well, best of both worlds.

You dont need to use the trick shots I never do. I wanted it for distance only.

Well im definetly leaning toward the bigshot....anyone out there ever shot one? would love for someone whose used it to gimme some feedback on its performance

little spendy, but i recommend the freak barrel, i have it and i love it.

i would say a cp, but if your looking for something just on your list i think the apex would be the best

I'd go with an apex imo

The settings always very on the distance I know lots of people who usually leave it on 3 or so. But if i wre you I would try to see if I could barrow a friends or test someone else first. You dont seem to sure of it to me, and that usually yeilds bad resaults. The Apex is a great barrel even better if you mount the tip on a better barrel but it does take some getting used to.

yeah im not to experience with stuff like that, i may just go with the smart parts tactical 20" because everyone that i have heard has said it was a very good barrel and its got the great mil slim look
