Maybe he plays woods or airball and wants a longer barrel to either shoot through the thick brush or push tighter into his bunker.

About all the major barrel companies make up to an 18in, but I think there are other no name brands out there that make longer ones (correct me if Im wrong).

i seem to remember hearing something about a 34" spyder barrel, maybe you could find one of those and get a thread adapter. why do you want such a long barrel though? its generally not a good idea to go over 16-18" (some people will say 14", but they are nubs )

16" barrels are great for airball. and the air that they "waste" is trivial... as in, maybe 50 shots at the most.

No name companies on ebay have really long ones like 21'+ if you get a 18' or 21' with silencer very long.

Ok, well, the reason is, is that I'm into WoodsBall, and I'm planning to make an A-5 into a Barrett Sniper Rifle, so, I need a long barrel.

Thanks for all the replies, guys.

well really you wouldnt neeed a 20 some inch barrel, just get a 16" if u want a long barrel,without having to lose speed off the ball, anything after 14" or 16" is really just friction and taking speed off the ball, but if u want a long one, 16" should be just fine for that, but u can always go 18" it wont be waaaaaayyyy to much off of the ball

Edit: i actually found it, it actually puts more spin on the ball, causeing it to be less accurate

True but it will be so slow you can watch it threw flight and easily step out of the way. Having a barrel that long isnt practical even if you want to be a "sniper", which to me is a bunch of **** when it comes to paintball. But we wont go there

I'm guessing he probably wants the long barrel because hes going for the milsim look.
