well, a couple inches of porting is always good, that'll quiet it down. also, if your paint bore matches your barrel bore, you'll be much more accurate.

Well, considering that the OP seems to have ironed out his problem, i'll just throw in my 2 cents anyways. There is no such thing as a "sniper" barrel. All barrels are just that, barrels. Some are just more suitable for sniping (an example is a nice, quiet ported one over an unported one), but there is no true "sniper barrel".

Any joe with a rifle can make long shots. A true sniper is a master of stealth and concealment.

a kit makes an excellent "sniper" barrel. bout the best accurate barrel you can get is a kit. aside from that the only barrel that will give more distance and feel "snipery" is the flatline or apex

The only real snipery thing about long barrels is you can poke them through bushes and still be behind said bush, real sneaky like. The hammerhead is super quiet downrange and others are real quiet in general.

Sniper is an attitude and a lot of practice shooting your marker so you know where the ball will hit at any useful range and a lot of practice sneakin. Good snipers are in great shape 'cause sneakin is hard work. Thats what makes me a quiet medium rifleman, the good shape part...

If you want the quietest barrel available, Mann, here on the forum did the ultimate barrel test a while back.
Turns out, a double-vented PPS Brass barrel is the "quietest barrel known to Mann." :D

In my experience, it's also the most accurate which makes it an ideal sniper barrel. Pair it with a hyper-consistent marker, good paint and a sight and you've got a perfect setup for tagging people unaware of your existence.
