Dont bother with JT barrel.. You'll want something better then that.. I would look into getting J&J or Lapco for the price range.. even evil driver barrel.

Well whats your price range for hpa tanks.. Cause you wont find many new carbon fiber tanks anymore.. Due to govermnet needing the Carbon fiber for war.

Now if you want carbon fiber(alot lighter then the steal your looking at) GO check out pbnation..

But you'll only get about 700shots of that size tank if i remeber right.

 

But yeah its good starter size tank. Crossfire is best.

since you play alot of positions go with 10 or 12 depending on whether you seem to go front or back more.

If you play back more get 12",
Front more...10"

All barrel lengths perform the same.


14"=sux0rz for front players. You can't get into bunkers tight and that leads into getting out very quickly.

The 14 inch is a bit long , even for scenario/Recball playing , I'd go with YWSM's suggestions for barrel length .

As far as the JT being a good barrel , I think its great , I have Two of them in Stainless , one with the 14" front , and one with the 10" front . I also have a CP 12" on a Fenix , and the Berzerker barrel kit , along with the stock barrels for all the markers I've gotten .

I believe the biggest factor for ANY decent barrel (JT , J&J , Lapco , Etc,,) is the paint to bore match for performance , once you get a good match to the paint you shoot , almost any quality barrel will perform consistently well .

**Trai** , Welcome to the forum , and remember to have fun , thats what its about .

Edit : I shoot the .688" bore in all my markers , that matches the paint that I shoot , RPS aqua field paint .

SL68-II , micro honed and polished .688" bore . Tuff Enuf .
Widowmaker , under construction

yeah thanks, i am working over the summer and i was gonna buy the ebolt and nitrous. I have the 32*'s terminator barrel and it is good, but every now and then (1-20 shots) it doesn't go strait. It either goes up or right or left and that suks when i am shooting at someone. Thanks and i will probably have more questions.
