A barrel my Canadian Friend!!! Then a new feedneck.

Barrel to improve accuracy and efficiency and the feedneck to keep the hopper in place (a gun with out paintballs is just that :))

Welcome to the boards!!!

Well then you should provide more information if you do not want new players advise. You asked a simple question with no detail.

In the future ask a more detailed question like:

"I have an imagine LED and i was wondering what upgrade you guys think i should get first, I already know a barrel is a good upgrade, but I am talking more Internal upgrades, like a valve or bolt."

Lol thats the point I wanted to see other ideas and what everyone else thought. I just wanted to see who says what i should get first.
If so what barrel do you guys think is the best. I know I may not like it but I've heard that the J&J Ceramic barrels are great. Tell me what you guys think.

I have heard that the acs bolt sucks from a lot of people even after they broke it in, so i suggest the alamocity..they got 3-oring bolts, or the shocktech superfly

Acctually alamao doesn't have 3 o-ring bolts, but thats besides the point.

I'd suggest from personnal experiance the ACS bolt and a new barrel (my SP Teardrop has been great, I would suggest it over the J&J ceramic) as the first two upgrades. When I used my ACS I had great results, it ALWAYS worked (except in the very cold..). The Teardrop with decent paint yielded awesome results.

Before I started going LP my setup was
Imagine
ACS bolt
Halo TSA
SP teardrop barrel

worked out great.

Hi guys, I'm the new kid in town and just had some upgrade questions.
Alright I got my Imagine probably 2 weeks ago, played once and it worked like a charm. My upgrades are:
- barrel to a 12' Teardrop,
- ACS Delrin Bolt (a think Tippmann makes it),
- Dye Sticky Grip
- and Lapco Feed neck

So I was just wondering what upgrades I can get other than changing the airsystem to Nitro/HPA. I think I might get an electric feeder (maybe the Revy, rather than the Egg) then maybe build up some cash flow for the T-board.
But I want to upgrade little things that would make the gun work better before getting the T-board.

Let me know what you think, and talk it easy on me, im still a noob.
