Yes J&J will work with the MR1. I have a 14" ceramic and LOVE it!

I agree with everyone recommending the J&J Ceramic barrels. I personally have the J&J 16 inch Ceramic barrel on my MR1, which is a little bit long I'll give you
that, but the barrel works magic for its price!

I have heard very good things about Hammerhead barrels.. and they can be ordered with spyder threaded fins. I'm looking into getting one. Big Red is right, dense fluid (paint) in a fluid medium (air) equals turbulence therefore inconsistency... or as we say in the IT biz... garbage in, garbage out. I think rifling would work in a vacuum ... with no gravity.... and frozen paint.... and ....nevermind...

Paint don't freeze. There's additives in it now that simply makes the shell more brittle the colder it gets rather than freezing up and getting hard. Now, if you were to super-cool the balls with liquid nitrogen, it might work. A standard household freezer... no way in hell.

Hammerhead barrels are very good, BUT, a Ceramic is cheaper and does the same thing. The only other barrels I'd recommend are all made by CP (which, by the way, is pretty much every high-quality barrel on the market).

Can anyone tell me about this one:

Scratch the bit about 'quiet' and 'sniper.' It's paintball. But for the price it doesn't look too bad. Think I should go with it?

Price aint bad, CMI isn't a horrible brand, but for a bit more you can get a real nice barrel. Either a CP One-Piece or J&J Ceramic is what I'd be looking at. You don't want to buy a barrel then find out that it sucks, only to have to buy another. The two barrels I recommended are not the best on the market, but they are good enough to make it worth it for the price until you decide to move to another marker platform. This is one reason I don't sugest high-end barrels anymore is that Spyder threads are specific to Spyder and you can't use them on any other marker, as pretty much every other marker out there is Autococker (Cocker, A/C) threaded.
