Newb question alert

I have an autococker and I'm looking for a bit of a more accurate barrel (under 12") with a slight milsim look. I've looked at a few different brands, etc but I still don't really know what I'm looking for. I'm looking for something in the $50 range if possible, however I'm willing to spring for an adapter if necessary.

You don't want to have to use an adaptor. Your cocker is closed bolt. Meaning the bolt is forward when in the ready position. THe only thing holding the ball in place at that point is it's paint to bore match, as it has been pushed past the ball detent.

You ideally want for a cocker to have three different bore sizes, if you don't get a barrel kit that is. So find out what size barrel you have now and get another of a different size/bore. Personally for cockers i always recomend barrel kits, like the empire twister, sanchez machine, j&J, powerlyte scepter kit, or others. THis way you can properly size paint.

If you want to go single bore barrels. Look at a J&J ceramic. Super cheap, shoots itself clean. Very nice for the price. For a little more i always recomend Lapco barrels. They are very loud, but very well made.

You also can invest in a Python compression kit or another Bore Sizer type kit. Where they are small 1"-1.5" backs that screw onto the back fo the barrel to size the breach so you don't get roll outs.

If i had any spare barrel kits i'd give you mine, but i gave my last two away last year. Sorry.

Thanks Leg!

Based on your input, I think I'm going to go for the J&J ceramic one (plus I found a pretty good deal on Action Village).

I knew I could count on you guys :laugh:

J&Js are great for the money. Dead on adn very quiet. If you do get a ball break, hold marker upside down and dryfire a few shots...it will shoot itself 90+% clean.

I aim to please. :laugh:

I like the CP one piece barrel much better and you can pick your bore size. As Leg said ... bore size is important for cockers.

I recommend the .689 or .685 bore. (get both)

New barrel arrived today! I have titled it "the nub" as it's two inches smaller than stock (and the shroud makes it look even tinier!) :D
