I've heard that when you fire, it consistantly curves to the left. And it has a strange O-ring fit. Are these claims true?

No NO! Yes, I have had the problem before with the barrel o-ring on the bigshot. When I first got it, I couldn't hit a trash can at 50ft(I posted a topic about it here a long time ago). I had to swap the o-rings with my stock barrel to keep the bigshot from wobbling side-to-side in my 98c. So yes, the storys are true to a degree. CGO out.....

Hey CGO, was your recever bolts not screwed in enough? Maybe when you opened it up to swich the Orings you screwed them in enough then you closed it back up. Just a thought.

^^^If your talking about the oring on the barrel then why would he open up the reciever to fix them.

Dude, (NOTE: Long time ago) in my reply. It's fixed, I had to swap the o-rings because the bigshot's was too small. But yes, I do screw in my receiver bolts in tight or the barrel will wobble slightly.

I hve used the lapco bigshot on A-5 and 98 and it works very well with unsurpased accuracy.
I need to find smaller pictures for my profile.

Until now, I've never heard anything but good reports about the bigshot, but if you really want to know, check here: http://www.pbreview.com/products/search/q/?q=bigshot

i love my bigshot... it's more accurate then any other barrel ive shot w/ one exception... the freak system w/ the right insert... i love my bigshot and its really durable ive beaten it on rocks and assorted other hard things and its held up great... i think ive put close to 30000 balls through it since i bought it about 2 years ago and i still love it. in response to the guy asking about size... i'd say stick w/ the 12 b/c its easier to keep close to your body in tight areas.

So a stock barrel o-ring will fit the bigshot barrel okay? And will this barrel work well with kick'n paintballs? Because the place I go down at great lakes paintball makes you buy their paint which is kick'n paintballs.
