Never exceed 300fps.

Accuracy depends on the paint itself, bore match between paint & the barrel.

A longer barrel wont really help. If anything it will waste air since it takes more air to reach 300fps. Modifying the stock parts you have is also a good idea.

To add to what I bolded of OIMs post, a test/project for my daughter's school project resulted that a longer barrel will actually hinder your velocity due to the added drag of the paintball on the [longer] bore.

Besides...higher velocity means more air to the ball. More air to the ball usually means more breaks in the barrel.
