Does size really matter??????

Does the over all length of a barrel matter, is a 16inch barrel more accurate than a 10 inch one. im wondering because w/ speedball i want to stay tight but still have the accuracy?

most people think that size matters, i believe that it does not.

its a myth thats been going on for a while now.

i would get a 14 inch barrel. you will have the accuracy of the 16inch, and it will be 2 inches shorter.

the bore size also plays a big factor. i would not get a bore that is smaller than .691

in kits, it can. In single bore barrels, anything beyone 8-10" does absolutely nothing for accuracy. The extra length only causes you to use more air (drag slows the ball down, must turn up velocity to adjust), and quiet your gun down (porting). If you didn't care what your gun sounded like, any barrel with good match in 10" length would give you optimal accuracy with tuckinability. Most people though don't want their paintball gun sounding like a cannon (slight exageration), therefore you get a longer barrel with porting.
