    well, lapco makes some very good barrels. i reccomend the bigshot. cp also makes good barrels, and you can choose what bore size you want. smart parts barrels are nice, but have tons of porting on them. dye has very nice barrels, but they are very overpriced. my fye aluminum performed very well though.

    For a under $90 barrel I'd go with a CP one piece or a J&J ceramic, those are both high quality barrels. They have $35 ceramics over at First Call

    I also reccomend CP, they are great barrels, and check ebay out, they almost always have good deals on barrels.
    You smell like dookie... No really though.

    You can buy CP barrels in .685, .689 standard and .693 for about $35 each, in a rainbow of colors

    Lapco Autospirit is normally a smaller bore, and the Bigshots are standard and a little bigger. same price range, plus they also come in chrome.

    I have a .689 14" CP, .693 12" CP, and a Lapco SS Autospirit for my different paint sizes...

    I say try all the barrels you can, decide what you like, the buy it. My choice is the 14" CP barrel, it shoots every paint thati have tried straight as darts. For the price, you can't go wrong.

    IF you don't mind me asking, where in the world did you find a CP barrel for $35? The lowest I've found is $50 on the CP site. Otherwise they're like $65!

    Please let me know, as I am in the market...

    Thanks ~ Dave

    Search Ebay once in a while and you might catch a deal. Got my CP 12" for $35 there.
