I'm thinking about buying a Smart Parts All-American barrel (14 in) for my spyder TL-X, and it says thats it's extrememly accurate, and i'm wondering if this is true.

Do any of you guys use them / have any commets?

Thanks.

Whenever you buy a part, you may want to check out www.pbreview.com. They're a good site to find out exactly what you're getting.

:D ok im just copying and pasting this as ive seen this way too many times now



different single piece barrels are not going to be more "accurate" then another. theres only two things that determines accuraccy:

Paint to Bore Match.
&
Barrel Composition

if the paint doesnt fit the barrel the right way, thats how youll get innacuracies.

my suggestion:

save up for a barrel kit or like a nice boomstick

the only other thing that will effect accuracy is barrel composition

aluminum is the most common composition used, as its inexpensive, and lightweight. on the other hand, it has a pretty bad friction ratio. something like a boomstick, which is stainless steel is heavier, but has much less friction.




one barrel isnt gonna be more accurate then another, depends on the paint size. this is because paintball barrels arent rifled, and cannot be, due to the way the paintball is filled

armeson stealth and empire twister are rifled.......... take a look down the bore of those..... supposed to create tighter groups (with consistent velocity) but i've yet to use either..... nor will I.......... i like my j and j and my flatline......

ok, quick explanation why rifling does nothing to paintballs:

rifling of long projectiles (spears, bullets, etc...) works because it prevents the round from spinning end-over-end, which would make accuracy really bad.

since paintballs are round, they have no end to go over end with, so no change.


that, and effective rifling comes at much higher energies

Yes! I have one on a M98C and I would almost sell the gun before I got rid of that barrel.
