Talking Ok, I have decided. Opinions?

Ok guys. With the help from alot of you (thanks) I have decided what I am going to order next week. I am going to get the Smart Part 14 inch Teardrop barrel. Then I am also going to get the Halo B electronic hopper. Think those are good choices?


Also, do I need a Teardrop barrel that fits the exact model of my Pilot ACS? Or do they come universal. Thanks again guys!!


*Edit - All though I saw on the net the Smart Parts All American barrel and it is supposed to be pretty sweet. Although more expensive.

Good choices, as for as the barrel, you'll need to make sure it has Spyder threads to fit on your Pilot.

Since you brought it up, personally, I like the All American better. It is more expensive, but I think it's better looking and a better barrel. If you had the money, that'd be the one of the two I'd get. But, that's just me.

You'll be good with what you mentioned, also. Like PP said, get spyder threads for your barrel.

Cool thanks guys. Now my last question is, what length should I go with. I was thinking just 14".

14'' is best overall size.

14" is good, but may I suggest the new progressive (06) instead of the teardrop, it is superior, and the same price, unless your gonna get the all-american...

12-14 = same. Two inches here or there aren't gonna make a bit of difference. Some even like 16" because you can wrap around a bunker or push through undergrowth easier with them.

I personally like 12" barrels on a speedball field. I like the looks better on a paintball gun and I don't push around bunkers much. 14 in the woods is decent enough for me.

Wow, so I ran into another barrel that has got me thinking. Its expensive, but the reviews are awesome on this thing. Its the BT Apex Barrel System. Anybody ever played/own this barrel?

Man, with so many options out there it is hard to choose which way to customize your gun. Atleast I know which electronic hopper I do want.

Apex is a no-no... Don't bother... You'll be VERY happy with the AA...

Really? I read some killer reviews about it. Oh well, to be honest it may be too much for me at this point. I do like the looks of the AA.
