barrel adapter question

I have a question about using a barrel adapter for my tippmann. Is it worth buying one? Or should I just get another barrel. Right now I have a 14 in teardrop on my spyder that I was going to see if I could use on the tippmann, or should I just go and buy a progressive barrel or something along those lines?

Thanks in advance

I don't see why a barrel adapter would be a bad idea, especially since it's cheaper.

it would be a good idea, and with that money saved you could consider saving up for different items

i would suggest agaisnt getting one
they ad some length to your overall barrel, and with a 14incher, you dont need any more length also, the bore sizes will also be sent outta whack with that addition
imo just get a nother barrel

Aside from the bore size and extra length...What's the cost of the adaptor vs. a new or used Tippmann barrel? There's no shortage of good condition ones to pick up.

I agree with torch and ninja for the same reasons. Plus barrel adaptors are just plain ghetto.

no just buy a barrel with your guns threads.
unless you have like a boomstick barrel with spyder threads and you now use a tippy, then get a adapter.
