If I were you I'd make a barrel my third or fourth mod.

1. Clamping feedneck -- reduce the hopper profile and eliminate cheap feedneck adapter.
2. Expansion Chamber or Regulator -- if you plan on sticking with CO2
3. HPA tank -- if you don't plan on sticking with CO2
4. Barrel

CO2 is compressed in a liquid-ish state and is volatile. This means that lots of things affect it's behavior and performance. CO2 will exhibit shootdown and spikes in pressure sometimes due to these conditions.

-angle of tank
-temperature
-rate of fire
-lots of things

an expansion chamber usually replaces your front grip with a louvered chamber (that you still use as a front grip) so that the CO2 has more room and time to expand into a complete gas state. This allows for the CO2 to act more like a less volatile propellant... such as high pressure air, which doesn't have this problem.

A regulator/stabilizer is an active valve that holds a certain operating pressure. I'm not the best for explaining this as some of the more technical fol,k around here can you give you the word for word explanation.

I gotta go to work. I hope this helped. :)
