Default Keep my old barrel or get a new one

I have a hammerhead kit and it's acting up on me. I was considering getting a new barrel but I thought I would ask here first. What ones do you reccomend?

I don't understand how barrel kits can "act up."

It is an inanimate object. It has no moving parts... how can something that doesn't move "act up?"

User fault?

Scratches from dirty balls? Permanent gunk from ****ty balls? I don't quite know how a very good quality barrel like a Hammerhead can go bad... explain?

I have the deadlywind on my ion and it's great but not what I'm looking for on my spyder. I have no idea what's wrong with the hammerhead. I got my velocity to 285ish like they reccomend and I sized my paint so I had the perfect match. I go to fire a few paintballs and they fly all over the place. After that I thought it must be a bad batch of paint. I got a new case of paint and sized my balls again and still had the same problem. There was absolutely no wind.

no scratches. I have always taken good care of my stuff so that is why I'm really confused. I talked to hammerhead and they said try some other paintballs and if that doesn't work send it in for cash back.

Check your bolt for flaws.

Had the same problem w/a used Stiffi Red Mamba (.691) I picked up for my A1, it was all over the place, even sent it into Site and paid $45 for them to check it and replace the G7 Fly collar w/an A1 specific collar (.689). Got it back and had the same problem, random breaks and lousy accuracy. Sometimes the PB gods just frown on us I guess.
