Something with lots of fancy milling on the back 6"-8" of the barrel will most likely not fit. Also I've come accross chunky two peice kits that won't fit either (sorry Dye ultralites) Pretty much plain looking or thin walled barrels are your best bet. J&Js, most Hammerheads, smaller Smart Parts, and CPs come to mind right now. I think this was done to try and keep the marker more mil-sim and tactical looking.(no big multi-colored baseball bat sized barrels for this thing) unless you chop shop your shourd with something like a whole saw to widen the openings. The tiny 3"-5" barrles would be neat to try though something so small it doesn't stick out of the front of the shroud... hmmm *evil schemeing*
Anyhow thats just my take on the barrel setup of the X7, it has its strong points and it has its flaws.

All of these recomendations are based on using the stock X7 shroud...
1. CP barrels-a good bit of these shoud fit because the artwork on the back end is pretty minimal on quite a few styles from this brand
2. Hammerheads-I have looked into getting a battlestix kit for awhile and by the way things measure up the back "fins" are small enough to mount to the barrel and keep it inside the shroud. Their one piece barrels shoud have little trouble.
3. J&J-Aside from being nice barrels their barrels like the whisper are fairly plain in style so they should have little fuss at all.
4. Smart Parts-Barrels like the linear looked they would fit fit because the "buldge" on the back would fit inside the shroud.(remove spacer ring first) I've got a 20" tactical barrel from them and I have to take the shoud apart and remove the spacer ring at the front to get the ridges on the back of the barrel to slide in properly.
5. Special ops-Stiffis and C-series look like an easy fit but I couldn't get an accurate measurement of the back where it screws into the barrel adapter.
6.Opsgear barrels-I have not seen any of these barrels in person but they all appear to have very plain milling or none at all. The only concern on these would be that the barrels themselves are too thick to fit.(If anyone has info on the size of these I'll see if they would fit((widest outside diameter of the barrel))A direct side-on picture of one on an A5 would be good.(no handguard plaes)
This is all I know of at the moment(until the new shrouds arrive). Also something of intrest would be to get the longer shrouds like the M4 or G36 to try and see if they could take two peice kits like Ultralites or freak kits. I just think these barrels would have be long enough for the tips to clear the fronts. Like the M4 and G36 I think spec ops and tippmann recomend at least a 12", 14" preferred.

i bought my x-7 and it will accept any a-5 barrel
so i thought ok i willl get me a freak kit and an apex
and now i found out...they won't fit so i look at the front shroud and there is a spacer o-ring so i took it apart and guess what the apex now fits even ok?
hope that helped or had some relevance

Thought I'd answer your question for you.
Like the above poster stated, if you unscrew the two foregrip halves and remove the "spacer" at the front of the foregrip, than tighten the two halves back together,... pretty much any and every 1" diameter barrel that will work for the a5 will work for the x7 once you remove that spacer.
And yes, the lapco bigshot will work. Lots of the guys over there are using the apex ready lapco bigshots, and loving them

You can separate the two halves of the foregrip.
Once they are separate,
You can remove a small plastic ring from the end where the barrel protrudes.
If you remove that small ring,
You can fit almost any barrel on the X7 without any difficulty or permanent modification.
I've tested it with everything from Smart Parts to Proto barrels.
If you remove the ring,
Any barrel will fit as long as it has the correct thread.
