View Full Version : barrel kits... what up???

04-23-2009, 07:27 PM
I bought a Smart Parts linear 20 bbl. Every paint I've tried rolls right down the barrel. I'm think ( if I understand you guys correctly,) I need a barrel kit.
Could someone please explain to this newbie what that means. How do I decided which one is right for me. I feel kinda like #5. I need input!!! I like my set up but am not happy with the ever changing curve balls that I've been throwing not to mention the reduced velocity. I do have one 14" barrel that holds the Recon paint very nicely but I spent $45 on the long barrel and do want to use it. Would also like to be able to shoot the two cases of RPS Flash paint that I bought for $25 per case(This paint actually rattles in the barrel!).
Thanks, guys for the awsome advise I know I'm gonna get.......

Any and all suggestions are welcomed. I can't get otters paintball chart to load up on my blackberry.

Pretty much what slim said, the fix would be to buy a barrel kit - unfortunately, that means replacing the linear.

Smart Parts Linears are basically Progressives, which are a .690 bore size (generally).
