WRONG! The most important part for accuracy is the last 2 to 4 inches, but that comes after the 8 to 10 inch it takes for the paintball to get up to speed. So a short barrel is louder, less efficient, and less accurate.

They're trying to sell you their barrel kits, the first several inches do make an impact on accuracy, but only for a paint to barrel match, Read up at www.ottersccustoms.com He's got info telling why those barrels will help you but also explains why 12-14" is the optimal length of barrel.

Edit: http://www.ottersccustoms.com/barrels.html
Thats the barrel FAQ, and explains everything you want to know.

So......if you're not using C02 or not using the C02 in cold weather, there's no rational reason to add/purchase an expansion chamber to your MR1 -
I just got the EC because I was looking for a cheap gas-thru grip and it fit the bill. Since I first changed my setup from stock I found out 1) the stock bottom line and ASA can be fit to an ESP frame with only a $15 bottom line adapetr and 2) a Pro-Team Intruder foregrip puts the tank in a really good position off the vertical adapter for Dagger-style "front" play and allows you to completely delete any hose/macroline, drop, and ASA.

I carry more air in a 70/4500 tank than I need for the paint I pack during a typical short game, so gas efficiency is a rather secondary consideration for me. So too is loudness. Unlike a woodball sniper who reconceals after a one- or two-shot ambush over and over, a Dagger player is usually using stealth only to outflank his enemy; once he opens up, he's going to be shooting until either he or the op-for gets eliminated. As for accuracy, while diminished it is sufficient to the task for the ranges at which I like to engage. What I get from a short barrel is good gun handling in tight quarters. I can hunker down behind the smallest cover, run unembumbered, squeeze through tight spaces, and bring my gun to bear quickly over and around my bunker for lightning snapshots. Loud schmoud. If I could use a 3" barrel (like on my Tippy) I would...

It's a Northwest Spyder vertical adapter that takes the standard threaded fitting and adapts it to an ASA. Lapco makes a similar product, and both have a curved upper recepticle that matches the contour of the lower part of the Spyder receiver. I think the NW is prettier, but the Lapco is easier to keep tight w/o Loc-Tite.
