Check this out... I got this for free with a cocker I bought at a paintball forum (Torontopaintball.com)

It's one piece (yes, it looks like two), cocker threaded, and takes large paint (I checked it with my barrel kit). It has a lot of porting, about 123 holes or something like that. It's somewhat quiet, the front is a lighter metal (probably alum.) and the back is hardcore heavy, like stainless steel or something. You could give someone a good clunk on the head with this thing (as a proshop tech pointed out when I asked him).

I took these pics and edited them.

And here's the logo. "TP" with a crosshair through the T.

I'm thinking TP could stand for:

Trinity Paintball?
Two piece?

Nobody else has any idea huh. It must be pretty old school or something.

TP sounds like Trinity Paintball, or top performance never seen one of those though.

its not trinity, my local shop has a few of em, they are mad heavy in the back and like you said they are a huge bore.

EDIT: Just called the proshop, the crosshair is an "O", and it is an OTP barrel.

OTP = On Target Products

Hey, nice! Thanks a lot for the help, and for your question about how well it shoots, all I have is small bore paint so it's very inconsistent. Once I find some larger paint I'll try it out.

Edit: Found the manufacturer on Pbreview.com. Looks like this is an OTP G1 barrel, suggested retail is about 70 bucks. It's apparently a two piece, I guess mine has siezed.

I also figured out why it's inconsistent. It needs inserts, which I don't have. The first half inch of the inside of the barrel is really wide so you can slide the insert in. Unfortunately I don't have any inserts so the paintball hit's the edge of the wide part every time it goes through the barrel. Too bad really. I would have liked to use it, but I'll be needing some inserts.

No need to revive old threads.

If you have a question about a barrel then search for the answer first then if you can't find the answer by all means start a new thread with your question.

As for your question, you need to get a barrel that accepts inserts to use them. You cant just take a Freak insert and put it in a CP barrel (just an example), it wont work.
