It's not so much that one barrel is "BETTER" than the other. There is no way to describe what "MAKES" one better than the other.

Colin of Lapco makes fine barrels. Period.
That being the case, both barrels are of EQUAL quality and performance.

The reason why I, and many others, suggest the single-piece Bigshot over the 2-pc Snapshot... is because there is no advantage in a 2-pc barrel. Colin, the MAKER and designer of the Lapco line, says so himself!!!
That being the case, why spend twice the money on something that doesn't give you an edge?

For the price of a single Snapshot, you can get yourself a Lapco Bigshot (med bore) and a Lapco Autospirit (small bore). The only two barrels you will ever need.

Colin suggests the 12" standard length. I concur.

14+" do not offer any advantages in range or accuracy. I find the longer barrels simply make the gun more unwieldy. The only advantage of a longer barrel is to press into air bunkers. Otherwise... it's just something that will be in your way when you try to manuever in tight spots.

8" is a nice handy size, but for whatever reasons, I have found it to be slightly less accurate than the 12 and 14" I have.

My opinion is more based on COST than anything else. I am of the opinion that there is no need to spend $92, when $50 will do the same job.

ok cool, so your saying that i would be better off with the the bigshot. and ,maby in the future a autospirit? and NOT to get anything 14+ in lengh? so the 8" is not as accurate as the others.

so what i get out nof this is that the 12"-14" bigshot/autospirit is the way to go.

wow out of all my topics(3) all i needed was this one post

thank you you helped very much
