Well, if you are going to snipe, I would NOT suggest the flatline. Flatlines are very loud with a very distinct sound. Also, its designed more fore distance and less for accuracy. The other two barrels, I know little if anything about them

The C-Series. The accuracy difference between the C-Series and Interceptor will probably just depend on which one the paint fits better, but the C-Series will be lighter and quieter. I'd also suggest moving down to a 16" C-Series, which will be just as accurate and quiet, but more air efficient and maneuverable. But if 18" feels better for you than a 16", go ahead, I'm just making sure you know that you don't need a long barrel to be a sniper :dry:.

i agree with J'92 all the way.

a 20" barrel will be just as accurate as say a 14" barrel, but the 20" will be louder and waste more air.

and with flatlines...they are made for guys that love to longball from across the feild and lay suppresing fire, not sniping lol.

the Opsgear barrels i know hardly anything about other then they look a bit weird and the are heavy!

Go with the C-series!..and get a smaller size than 18" please!..you will thank yourself later i promise!

A 16" inch C seires barrel will work just as good as a 18" , any longer than 16" the ball is losing velocity before it meaves the barrel and is rubbing on the barrel casuing it to further slowdown


14" Stiffi is what i shoot, its accurate, never breaks with the right paint, and it has the range i need.

Flatlines are good for wasting paint is a support position casue you can lay it down out at extreme ranges BUT at that range if they hit someone in the body they often dont break.


Edit: if i had to choose i would say the C-sieres becasue its quiter, lighter, and more accurate than the other 2.

Good post, drummer. Fourteen inches is pretty much where all your stats max out.


I'm not much for carbon fiber because it can be unreliable. Don't use a swab to clean it; always squegee.

Neither, a 12" or 14" C-Series would be preferable over those monstrosities.

I'd have to say either 16 or 14

reason is at 14" your accuracy is the most that you will get from the barrel and at 16" that is the most that it will quite any thing onver 16" is considered a gas hog

I love the 14" Empire Twister with spiral rifling. Found it to be very accurate (though I did have a perfect size paint to match).

14" C Series. Add a tip if you want, but it's really all you need, but I am also for looks, so if you like long barrels, don't let us stop you.

My barrel is 15.5 inches. Only because of a barrel adapter.

did I die for a second there?...

id go with the 18' or 16' interceptor.. I read alot of reviews on them, and they are very accurate, altho they are kinda loud.. But if you think about it, a straight barrel still being accurate at 150ft, thats good..

I have the interceptor for my 98 and the c-series for my a-5 and from comparing both of them the c-series definitely beats the interceptor in terms of accuracy

and yes the interceptor is very very loud because of not having any porting

It doesn't have to look good as long as it works

their is always a sniper watching you
