View Full Version : 14" or 16" J&J Ceramic Barrel

Which of these two would be better for my MR2? Is the 16" overkill or is ther a difference in accuracy with the longer Barrel?

when they are that size they are pretty equal i like 16" just because i like the length....

length doesnt make any difference in accurace. i like 14 just cause it seems more natural to me

technicaly it does :D (3 inch vs. 16) but after 12-14 it doesnt matter.....

Truly it doesn't matter all that much (I like 14 inch) but if you get a J&J S2 barrel EXPECT SHROUD PROBLEMS!!!! I got one and I love it but the shroud won't fit over it so I'm working on a mod to fit it.

Thanks for the feed back
I personally prefer the 14". They both will perform about equally depending on the paint to barrel match and I feel that the extra 2" just makes me a bigger target.

Actually the extra 2" go into the marker shroud so with a 14" barrel all you show or that is sticking out from the marker is 12". And get this. I measured my barrel just now and Im 1/2" short. That's right my 14" J&J ceramic barrel only measures 13 1/2".

yeah, my 14" whisper is slightly longer than my friend's 14" J&J. i also have a 9 3/4" BE barrel...

measured my jj and also shorter than 14"..weird but all good
BTW just noticed my jj was missing the 0-ring?!!? do I really need it, will it affect anything??
You do need it, I can't remember why at the moment. (I need to go to sleep.)

can I replace with the stock mr2 barrel o-ring? what does it affect w/out o-ring?? help!!

Meh, it's not that big of a deal. That oring seals the barrel to the body of the marker, which helps with air efficiency (ever so slightly). On top of that, it keeps the barrel screwed in all the way. You don't need it, but it is a plus if you have a spare one lying around.
If you're that worried, hit J&J up via email or phone and ask for a replacement barrel oring, although I believe that the one on the stock barrel will work.

hey thanks bruh, i'll prolly not even worry bout that o-ring and/or use my mr2 stock barrel o-ring

Well the people who built it put an o-ring there so I have to say put in a new oring. It makes a tight seal and keeps the barrel snug. If you can find an o-ring that fits properly use it.

the stock o-ring that came with my J&J 14 inch needed to be replaced anyway, I dunno what they did to it haha, but it was so tight to screw on. After I muscled it in all the way, and wanted to get it out, it took one person twisting the barrel and another person twisting the marker (red faced) just to get it off. Anyway, yeah, I just put a smaller o-ring on and it worked great. By the way, inbetween replacing the o-ring I used it without one, and you shouldn't notice a difference.
