Default Which Barrel(s)?

I currently have the proto 1-piece for my pilot acs and I was wondering if I should keep it or if one of these would be a better choice either the J&J ceramic or the evil pipe barrel kit?

pipe will give best performance just 'cause you will have the option of bore sizes, allowing you to make a better paint to barrel match, So if your getting the whole kit than go with the Pipe, if not, stick with the Proto. If you don't have the option of bore size than a barrels a barrels a barrel.

Of the three choices, I'd choose the kit. However, I haven't heard a lot of good about the Evil kit, but I haven't heard much bad either. It does give you the option of sizing the paint to the barrel, which will seriously help with your efficiency and somewhat help with your accuracy.

However, if I were to choose from kits, that would probably be one of the last that I'd choose. I'd look into the Redz barrel kit, the Sceptor kit, the titanium bow (dang, can't remember the name of the top of my head!), a McDev Matchstick, a Freak or the J&J Edge kit. I'm not sure if the middle ones have Spyder threading available, but if they did, those are what I'd look for.

The proto one piece is a good barrel - I have it on my Rail and a friend of mine used his on an Autococker. Pretty much ball on ball, it looks ok but not that great, and you are limited to matching paint with this. I've heard it's pretty much like an Ultralight barrel, but I've never used the UL (don't want to spend 100 bucks on a barrel!) so I can't compare.

Any thing other than the stock unit will be a step up, keep your proto and invest in some other upgrades; maybe a reg.
