So I recently got a splatmaster off ebay :P and i wanted to upgrade the barrel. Seeing as the splatmaster doesn't use threads(just 2 little holes that little pegs go into) I was thinking of getting a freak insert and drilling the holes myself. I just need to know if the insets are thick enough to drill about 1/16" in without going all the way through the barrel at that spot. I also would like to know the length of the inserts to know if they would be to short/long.

Thanks for any info :laugh:

Leave the poor splatmaster alone! Just play with it as is! If it doesn't suffice... sell it, put it on your wall, make sandwiches with it, BUT DONT CUT IT UP TO FIT A FREAK INSERT!

I'm not cutting any part of my splatmaster, just the insert

Freak inserts are pretty thin to begin with, I doubt you would be able to drill without going all of the way through.

The insert would be too thin.

Cut a barrel you won't miss and try with that first, regardless of what you end up doing. You screw up a $120.00 barrel kit and you'll cry regardless if you're made of money or not.

yeah...stock a5 barrel works but i would recommend maybe the stock phantom barrel first... one of the best barrels out there

Anyway, how much are individual inserts? How bout stock barrels? And would the insert fit inside the splatmaster in the first place?
It's only a game, you don't need to be afaid of anyone, except for ONE person. Its not the teenager with a marker worth more than your car. Its not the SPPL player with about 35 BPS firing rate. Its the 40 year old guy lying in a corner, taking a nap before the game begins. His camo will probably be old, and he will most likely be toting a pump. He's been playing since before you were born, and if he mentions how much he didn't like when he had to play with oil based paintballs, make SURE he is on your team. This guy is a ghost.-Match99

the a5 barrel as I found out is to big to slide, so I'm thinking getting an insert and making a part that has holes in it out of wood or something and guleing it to the insert
