View Full Version : witch barrel??

05-20-2008, 06:08 AM
hey i have an mr1, and have been blown away with some of the mr1s i have seen on this forums.

i want mine to be basicaly a sniper replica. I was wondering witch barrel would proform best for acuracy, fireing power, and on a bipod.

obviously i have to have a long enough barrel for the bipod to be of use, so any help would be apritiated

J&J Ceramic 14"

They're inexpensive, light, and have a ceramic coating on the inside. This makes it so that if you get a chop, it'll shoot right through it with the second shot and clean the barrel out.

They're quiet, accurate, and once again, light.

If you want length, don't get any longer then a 16"

I've got a 14" on mine and it's plenty long enough.

so if i do get the j&j 14 or 16 inch, would the bipod work decently for sniping??

i guess it would work fine, but im just abit fraid that the legs might not have room to tuck in if the barrel isnt long enough

thanks for the help

Get a 16" then. Just don't go for anything larger... you're going to be wasting so much air trying to push a paintball through the extra length that it's just not worth it.

ive been looking around and its rather hard to find the 16 inch lol

i found one, and ill order it soon as i can. trying to decide if i should get a hopper or barrel first. i chop a lot of paint with my gravity fed hopper lol

Are you using a stock barrel right now?

What are you looking for in terms of a hopper? Obviously electronic... but what brand/make?

05-20-2008, 06:39 AM
Buy my Reloader 2. It's got enough speed for an MR and you'll still have enough for a barrel


link is in sig.

...and then some if you ever decide to get a faster gun haha.


There's a good site (FAST shipping) that has a 16" J&J.

oooh thanks. um well i am currently useing the stock barrel.

i have thought about a reloader 2. ill check yours out. im also rather conflicted.
i dont know if i want a sniper, or more of a tactical mr1. i play at my farm, and my frineds farms mostly. we set up wooden bunkers so there i think a tactical set up would be more effective.

i just love the way the snipers look

currently i only have $60 so i can only get one or the other. have some saving to do if i wanted a higher end hopper.

Do a setup you can use for both.

the 16inch would probably be a little long to run around with.

IMO a sniper should also be skilled at the tactical aspect of the game..in case things get out of hand.

besides sniping is boring, get in the action of the game :P

i have been looking at tactical barrels, and i can get em from RAP for around $85

i think ill go ahead and try to get a decent hopper, then get the barrel. Im aplying for a few jobs so hopefully ill be able to pay for more in the near future:D

I'd have to disagree with that... 16 isn't hard to run around with. I use one on my FASOR when I play back in speedball even... I also use it because the guy who I bought it from told me it was a 14" and I haven't been able to find a tip for it yet.
Also, sniping is anything but boring... I do it often when I play scenarios. Flanking, sneaking up behind people without them seeing you, is hardly boring. It's a great adrenaline rush. Especially when you get far enough in on the flank that you can come up behind their entire base and camp. Nothing beats picking people off from behind and causing mass havoc among them.

What do you mean by tactical?

Also, you're not going to need anything more then a Empire Reloader or a Viewloader Revolution.

okay i found this pretty good barrel kit. i think i should be able to replace the barrel with a better barrel in the future.

please say if you all think this would be possible. ill use the barrel it comes with for now, just because of my lack of funds

what would the price ranges be in with those hoppers?

05-20-2008, 07:30 AM
Well I wouldnt' know much on the tactical end.

My assumption is that woods would inquire tactical aspects.

I see what you mean on the sniping. I was referring to those that sit in a spot and snipe. Maybe I'm just bitter, cause i've been taken out by snipers :(
I didnt mean to say that it was lame, but i prefer to run around and sneak up on people.

lol atleast 16" isnt as bad as 20+

I have a couple 14's and they suit me well. Never played with a 16 so I wouldnt know much about it either.

05-20-2008, 07:31 AM
It is possible. That's the exact same shroud and front sight that I have on my gun that I pictured earlier. I have a J&J 14" on the inside of that.

05-20-2008, 07:32 AM
okay then ill order it soon. the barrel that comes in it is 16" would the 14" still fit it??

05-20-2008, 07:34 AM
Yep. Like I said, I've got a 14" J&J in mine and it's the exact same barrel shroud/M4 handguard.

You could probably even get away with a 12" in it... it'd come up to the end of the front sight and stick out by a half inch haha.
