i have been reading through the topics on barrels and see a divided view on barrels, generally speaking people either swear by Stiffi or by Palmer, i've been rocking a stock trilogy tactical for 3 years and have loved every moment of it, it's somewhat quiet, and has decent accuracy and have really been looking at getting a new barrel but can't quite decide between the two, i was just curious if anyone would mind helping me decide, and also is that gun quiet overall? it seems so to me but i could be mistaken compared to others

I've had a stiffi (lol), and used a palmer. Go brass, and get wedgits to stop rollouts. You'll thank me.

yes rollouts are one of the most annoying things i've experienced with that gun, was leaning towards palmer but with so much money rolling either way i wanted to be extra certain of what way

Lapco makes nice barrels, as does PPS. Either company, you can't go wrong.

On my 'cockers I used a 16" DYE Ultralight that I migrated over to my TAC ONE and absolutely enjoy using it!!!

Lapco's are great barrels too (pricey for kits).

Deadly Wind carbon fibers with the use of Freak inserts work very well too. (I use one on my ION and sometimes toss that barrel on my TAC ONE)

A Stiffi will be lighter weight. With a single Stiffi barrel you're stuck with one bore size, but I seldom need different bore sizes. That may not be a concern of yours (roll outs). The Stiffi will be quieter a bit over the Palmer. Stiffi's are accurate...I've never been amazed by them.

Palmer brass with a smooth, polished bore are very accurate. You can pay a bit more for double venting which will make it a quieter barrel. Brass weighs more than carbon fiber (duh!) lol. Palmers great barrel, but comes with a price if you want it customized to your wants/needs. Widgets are great for close bolt markers.

to me both real good barrels, but over rated a bit.


I've shot a DYE Ultralight for the last 5 years or more. Before that Smart Parts & Lapco barrels for the most part.

I've owned most of the barrels out there on the market too. :happy: :D

Any barrel kit would be good also. 8 inches of control bore and then porting will prevent roll outs, give you good accuracy, and be quiet. I've never used a Palmers barrel but they seem to be good barrels.

I got a J&J edge kit for My autococker and it works wonders. No more roll outs, and the kit was only 80 bucks for a 14in with 4 backs.

For value it's hard to argue with a J&J kit to stop roll outs.

You will find that the marker might be loud but only because you are the one shooting it.

At 5 yards out I've seen guys look around wondering where my shot came from. When the business end is pointed at you, the cockers can be hard to pick up with a bunch of loud markers going off all over the place.

As for accuarcy, anything NOT from the factory will generally shoot better. The kit gets the added bonus of juuusst a lil more accuracy and the nicety of no roll outs.

Having fired blowbacks and closed bolts (Autocockers) there is something about the marker NOT being a blowback (like a tippmann) that makes it accurate with just about any aftermarket barrel you put on it.

By the way, the shot from 5 yards back. No ghillie. I even jumped up and moved behind a tree real fast. His buddy behind him was the only one who spotted me. I then set up a killbox with a friend of mine and ended his game. :)

Not bad for no ghillie I think :)

A kit. In my opinion it's the best way to go. That way you can make sure that you have exact bore control. On Mann's barrel test overall for kits it looked like the Matchstik barrel kit performed best. I don't have experience with it but I have a friend who uses one and it's deadly. But from the choices a palmer's double vented and try to get a wedgit.

thanks much for the advice, and i think going by the price of the Palmer, i think i'm going to roll for a kit, that one barrel is just too pricey for my blood right now
