Question 2011 Tippmann a5 stock barrel

Hi, I want an aftermarket barrel for my soon to be owned a5 but can't afford it at the moment. This if ONLY for people who have and used the 2011 Tippmann a5 barrel quite a few times. Please don't recommend barrels to me, all I want to know is if the stock barrel shoots nicely or not. (please include how straight+how far (approx.) it shoots). Thanks

It is literally about the worst stock barrel ever made. All standard (as in not Apex or Flatline) barrels will shoot the same distance but the stock A5 barrel has a very large bore and is very poorly finished inside and out so accuracy from the barrel side of things is about as poor as you can get. It will still shoot okay paintball accuracy is dodgy at best even with the nicest gear so don't sweat it too much if you can't afford a great aftermarket barrel off the start.
