Well, just got my new 8in Bigshot. I LOVE IT.
I was very skeptical when I first bought it. I kept thinking how crappy the stock barrel is and how short it is...etc. I was not dissapointed when I put this barrel on my A5. I was shooting less than a 3 inch spread from about 70-75 feet. Even closer at 30-50 feet.
Paint I was using: RPS Stinger (checked, good paint/barrel match)
Velocity: 275ish
Gas: Pure Energy 72/3000 Tank
Temp: 35 Degrees
I had to keep in prespective that I wasnt shooting my Apex. Ive used the Apex for about 2 years, only reason I swichted is because I got the SO MP5 SD Long shroud.
I am, by no stretch of the imagination, upset or dissappointed by this barrel.
Look for a Accuracy vid on http://fearpaintball.net soon!!!!

Another nice review Neo Enhander. I cant wait to see your vid. Your vid on the apex convienced me so far on getting one instead of a flatline.

Lapco does make some great barrels, I gotta buy a new one so I can put my Apex tip on it. I've always used 8" Bigshot on all my A-5s when I had them, its a great nice loud, & very accurate.
