OK I just got the MR1...its a great gun and i heard it is even better with a better barrel. ( i would assume every gun is)...anyways i was looking around and found a Smart Parts Linear Barrel 20" for about 50$....Would that be good? I mostly play in big outdoor areas with friends and do alot of target practice....so i was wondering should i get the long barrel or go with a shorter one? Like whats the difference???:confused:

yeah. get the linear. if you ever play indoor, you can just use your stock barrel instead. i run an Apex barrel on mine, but i haven't had the chance to try it for outdoor yet. but i've used a 16" linear, and i loved it. i was gonna get a 20" for myself for outdoor. if you get it, let us know how it works. also, it's a sexy lookin barrel(but get black, obviously).

if u r a sniper kinda guy i would reccomend the 20" inch. but if u r not i'd say a 14" or 16" inch. The difference is that when u have a barrel that is over 16" it's not meant for serious fighting. their meant for sniping from some distance. but barrels up 2 16" and lower r for some closer range fighting. So hopefully that is what u wanted 2 know.

yeah....but the longer the barrel, the more friction the paintball has...and i think it uses more air. But that is off topic kinda so thank-you guys for responding so quick. thanks.

I put a 14" J&J ceramic on mine and with medium grade paint it will put them about one on top of the other at approx 35-40 yards. If you use cheap paint you might as well stick to the stock barrel.

I have a empire twister 14 inch and a dye precision barrel 16 inch they both work the same.

I have a j&j ceramic barrel 14" that cost me $29. I have played for 5 years now and that is the best investment I have made. To be honest, anything over 14" is a waste. Check out some other threads in the forum, there are alot of very smart people in these forums.

The J&J is cool, but the bore size is small; you'll probably have to shoot paint that measures .687 or smaller...

Heh personaly the barrel i would recomend is a 32* whisper.. like 30 bucks now and dooes reduce the sound of your gun.....

But dont get anything over 14" becasue you will have problem achiving 300 FPS due to more friction

Well, another new idea is the new smart parts progressive (35$ US) it now has the same ceramic nature of the J&J and is very accurate. I suggest it.

Anything over 14" is a waste, though having a 20" barrel does do something to intimidate those who know it doesn't do anything... All it does is put friction o nthe ball slowing it, forcing you to use more air.-Useless because it adds no more accuracy than a 14 incher.

rather than the progressive go for the teardrop ;) ... it's the same price, but the teardrop has better porting ...

if you are playing out side get te apex tip. put duct tape over the end and fit the tip on. shoots as far and accurate as the flatline but goes on any barrel for about $35. best thing i ever bought.
