Whatever will tickle your pickle really. Any 2 piece barrel kit that has multiple bores will be a vast improvement over a one piece, since you will have the ability to saze your bores according to the paint your shooting.

im thinking about maybe buying like the ti longbow or lapco snap shot... as my main barrel... and buying an affordable barrel kit as a back up... because if i buy the lonbow or lapco ill make sure the bore matches the paint at most of the fields i go to or as many as possible, and then find a nice high end brand of paint thats the same size as the fields i use, to use
and then if i ever go to a field with not the same size paint or wind up stuck with something that i cant use with my main barrel ill have a kit to back me up... what u think?

why are you buying a backup barrel kit? do you expect your barrel to break on you?

Check that out. Go towards the bottom of the page though. It has a ton of different barrel testing.

The stock UL is quite good, if you really feel the need to match bore size just buy two more backs for it. Go about -+.03 from whatever the stock bore size is, I forget (meaning, if the stock size is .690, get a .687 and .693).

well the problem with keeping the ul is i dont like it that much i want a stronger material, because ive hardly played with my dm7 yet and its already nicked up on the barrel and theres a little like scratch on the inside and idk how that got there lol, but either way i wanted to buy a new barrel

what could i do to get rid of it its like a little point on the inside of the barrel that might cut up the ball that comes out im not sure... but should i like try to sand it down or what.... cuz from what im hearing i should just get like a boomstick thats a different size so ive got two sizes... and maybe buy another UL back for another size just in case

nothing you buy isn't going to scratch. I'm nto sure how the inside got scratched, were you playing in sand or something?

You're going to be hard pressed to find a better quality barrel than a UL. It's completely normal for your barrel to get a little scratched up on the exterior from normal play. The interior scratch is a little odd but if it's still shooting straight then I wouldn't worry about it.

idk i havnt shot since i noticed it lol so maybe its fine maybe its not idk... i just prefer something like titanium and i know everything is gonna scratch and wear... i was playing in rocks n bushes maybe thats it lol, what u think is the best barrel kit then? or a nice strong kit... wish the ti longbow was cheaper cuz then i would buy that and then idk a barrel kit or some more UL backs

so if the ball does get ****ed up shooting out of the barrel should i try like sanding it down or what should i do?

NO! No sandpaper! Bad!

Did you buy this gun new*edit*? If you did and you think the scratch has messed it up, contact Dye and see if they'll help you out.

Not too many people bother with titanium or steel, as they weigh quite a bit more, and that weight is exaggerated as it's sticking out on the front of your gun.

Barrel kits are wastes of money.

No one actually sizes their paint anymore. They buy large bore barrels and overbore everything.

ULs are the best barrels around. Same with Lucky 15s and Eclipse barrels.
