Hey, IMO the stock barrel is better than other stock barrels. I haven't used it too much, though. Personally I love my 14" J&J ceramic barrel, although I scratched the side of it on a spool the first week i used it =*(

The stock barrel on any marker sucks. They're normally peices of aluminum roughly rolled to have an internal diameter of .691 . Personally, I would get a .692 bore CP 1 Peice or a Smart Parts Teardrop barrel. With the larger bore you have a lot of with that single bore over getting a barrel of same make but of smaller bore. Here's a whole discussion thread on that. Now for length....if you play a lot where you need a shorter barrel then go 12", but if you can get a 14". Anything more is a waste of money IMO.

For $50-70 you can find a Dye UL barrel, I'd go with that.
