I was thinking on getting a new barrel and some other stuff today. I was thinking an all american barrel = 16 in., Expansion chamber, Double trigger kit. Then i was wondering, what does the expansion chamber really do for the gun? Also any other reccomendations on barrels?

Get a 14" barrel.. And the expansion chamber does what it says basically if you are using co2 it allows the co2 to expand which lessens the amount of liquid that enters the marker.. ..someone correct me if im wrong

Well I would say get a 14" barrel becuase you really dont need a 16" barrel in woodsball, and 14" is a solid length for a barrel. The expansion chamber gives the co2 time to expand into a gas with increases the shots per tank that you get from co2 and the efficency, and it also is better for your gun if you use only co2.

no, common misconception. Its what the barrel is like that makes it accurate or not, what your paint is like, the bore of the paint. A lot plays into accuracy, you have to play around a bit. Look online for someone that has the same setup as you, ask what works for them. I would definately get no more than 14". Look at j&j ceramics, thats what I have on mine, and I can use some really cheap paint that shoots straight as an arrow. If you end up getting that barrel I can tell you what works.

16" barrel will just use more air/co2...you don't need anything more than a 12"...expansion chambers are well worth it if you're using co2.

The whole point of a longer barrel with the limit being 16" is for speedball, pushing the inflated bunker away and keeping close to it allowing you to keep your profile low. Woodsball you dont really need a 16", a 12" or 14" is maxing it.

Well i got a 14" J&J Ceramic barrel and the expansion chamber and it shoot's great i must say. I played a game yesterday with it and we were playing a hill game and of course my team got the bottom, but it was really accurate and i got alot of ppl and we won the game so i liked it, we played alot of capture the flag to and it was a good sniper against ion's scince i knew i would die against them in open battle
