Between the stock trigger, and stock barrel, which one would you choose to upgrade, and why? The reason I ask is because I am thinking about getting a Rail, and I don't really like the stock trigger or barrel, but would be able to live with just using one of those stock, mainly to save money.

Thanks

Just using the info and such that's taken from other posters - and my own know how and experiences:

Barrels are barrels are barrels. If you bore, you have different expectations than people who prefer just a standard overbore or something of sorts. When you hit mid-range markers...generally.. the stock barrels are going to be less of a factor in the way the marker shoots than the paint..so..for the time being, lets assume that its no different. To test this - I actually just bought a PRR 2012... and when I take it out, in the chrono, I'll throw my Etek3 barrel on it, and then the PRR barrel on it. I'll let you know if I can tell any difference using DXS Silver.

About the trigger - Those are entirely preference. I'm also seeing that they're fairly inexpensive. You may want to pick up 1-3 of them, flop them in, play with them for a day, and see which design/shape/etc. you prefer.

My opinion here Trigger is going to change the feel of your marker far more than the barrel (unless you're talking weight)

Some triggers can help, some you won't really notice a difference. I've used a few different types, and IMO, the Critical trigger is the smoothest. This is all a matter of prefrence, and adjusting it to make it more comfortable for you.

As far as barrels go, I use what ever barrel came with my marker. I've tried CP barrels, CF barrels, and the Freak kit. If I were you, look into upgrading the bolt, or your other gear before thinking about the barrel...

So barrel length has not been a problem for you? I know with my Tippmann 98, I hated the stock barrel because it was short, and inaccurate. If it isn't much of a difference on the Rail, then great.

i have a 2011 rail. the trigger is great, and like they said, its really all about preference. the only reason you should change it is if you want a different shape trigger. I got another barrel just cause the stock one is 11 inches. ITs easier for me to point and shoot real quick with a 14 inch barrel.

Alright, my concern with the trigger was just with the ability one might have to walk the trigger compared to an Etha or something else. If I can still walk the trigger nicely, and not have to worry about awkward pulls then great.

In regards to the barrel, I'm fine with the stock length aside from that I was under the impression that at that length the shots would have a wide spread. Eventually I would have upgraded to both, but initially I wasn't sure which way to go.
