If you don't believe Martix, I'll second his notion.

These guys are awesome and really know their stuff.

The Lapco Bigshot is a great barrel (actually all Lapco stuff is great) but it does have a really large bore so keep that in mind.

They are a legit company and aren't going to rip you off if that is what you mean I've made a few orders through them and have never had a problem and I haven't heard of anyone else having trouble with them either.

what about the flatline? i've some bad things from it but also i've hear that it increases the range without decreasing the accuracy. and how does that thing work? when i see it on a 98C the end of the barrel is higher then where the balls come out of.

Don't even dream about a flat line or Apex, not even worth thinking about.

they do nothing advantageous. There's plenty of barrel thread in this forums and in every one the flatline and apex are brought up and immediately shot down.

The add range, but do not break at the extra range. They cause the paintballs to float around, completely destroying what little accuracy they have to start with. and they're both very overpriced.

ok perfect thats defenetly what im getting then. one thing i forgot to ask is how big is the bore of the barrel compared to the stock one. im using zap recreationnal series balls that roll threw my barrel but theyre prety accurate. how good will they be with the J&J barrel?

.689 is what the J&J's are (I think).

It also helps when you use proper grammer and punctuation, it's easier to read.

I used my friends 20" and then tried his 16" and found the 20" to be far more precise. Also it will give my bravo one a more realistic look which is appealing.

A barrel that is 6 inches and a barrel that is 20 inches will be just as accurate as eachother.

The only difference in accuracy would be the paintball itself and a little bit on the precision of manufacturing the barrel.

that is why most real sniper rifles have longer barrels right? there is no physical way that a 6" barrel could be as accurate as a 20". example no 2 a pistol in the same caliber as a rifle is not going to be as accurate due to the shorter barrel

This is true with bullets that obtain a spin inside the barrel; spin that gives it more accuracy. You've fallen into a trap that most new players also fall into. When comparing bullets and paintballs there's nothing the same except that they both are fired out a barrel. Past that's they're incredibly different.

Given the same conditions, a 6 inch barrel and 20 inch barrel will shoot at the same amount of "accuracy". This, Ton Kayne discovered with extensive testing, etc etc. (and when he says something is so, you'd best believe it.)

Cute...
Seems that your thinking real steal is the same as paintball...

In paintball, past 6 or so inches, there is no contact with the paintball, the barrel widens up and the paintball just floats down the rest of the length of the barrel. The rest of the barrel is just there for porting and looks.
