I have a suggestion.


Don't bump three month old posts.


Edit:

Here's a couple more:

Post in the correct section.  (For instance, this is the Marker Gallery where people post pictures of their markers, questions about upgrades should probably go in the Upgrades and Customizing section.)

Another good suggestion would be to not hijack other people's threads.

Hey guys.

Guess what, another noob just joined the forums   anyway, I recently bought myself the Bravo One (Alpha Black), and I really love this gun. But, sorry to the say, the stock barrel is not that good.  I've been looking throughout the forums the diffrences between the Lapco Big Shot Barrel and the BT APEX Barrel, and I'm impressed by both.  The question now is what to buy.  I'm looking dead on accuracy at say around 20-25m (If possible), and some extended range.

Any sugesstions?

Thanks

I have a 14 inches lapco autospirit and it fits, it's tight but it fits.

The lapco bigshot or autospirit are 2 really good barrels for their price. The autospirit is for med size paint .687 .688 and big shot for bigger size .688 .689. depending on the kind of paint that you are using, its your call. Also don't forget to get an HPA tank, Co2 simply sucks, the consistency of your shot on a Co2 tank is simply horrendous.

Unfortunately no...I tried and it did not work. The stock Alpha black barrel is 1 1/8 inch wide. The 1/8 screw up the whole thing. It would have been 1 inch like OPSGEAR, lapco barrels, it could have worked.

If you want the RIS tactical handguard you will have to get yourself another barrel!

You can get the Tactical Alpha at any pb store online around $130.00. I know that Dicks Sporting goods also has them around me (just the base version though) at the store, but not available online. I was going to buy the base version and add all my 98C stuff to it, but I think I'm going to stick to my trusty 98C with my M4 Kit on it. Also, stay with semi-auto for starting out. I've been playing since 1995 and still don't pefer the Auto versions, you end up using all your paint and batteries, plus air. 

 

I would not see the point that you change from your 98c with an M4 kit on it to an Alpha Black...it is the samething!

Because I hate the magazine look (placement) on the 98C and perfer the look of the Alpha. Also, my 98C can't be upgraded with an E-trigger due to the year of it, where as the Alpha can be (eventually). But, i've decided to purchase a new Bossman M4 magazine and keep my 98C. 

My bad I did not know that there was some 98 that could not have the E-grip added.

Yeah, it's like pre-2006 and #893,000 or something like that. I could be wrong on both numbers but I know mine was one of the first 98 Customs and can't take the E-trigger. I also have an orginal 98, that's how old school I am, lol.
