regulator helps with consistency which helps with accuracy, but a new barrel would help too. I recommend a J&J or Lapco, though if you have a lot of money, get a barrel kit.

like said above.  A J&J or Lapco.  The J&J has more porting and the inside is teflon coated which helps shoot through any breaks easier.  The lapco is also a goof barrel and is a little louder.  if you want the tip to be straighter with no flanging out then go with the J&J.  Personally I prefer the J&J anyways.  To find the compatability just look for a barrel with 98c threads and it will fit.
Stay low, run fast, and hope that paintball doesn't hit your...

Yes, it should work fine with the JJ.

i've never owned one, so i don't know, but i always thought the inside of a j&j was coated with ceramic.

You can indeed. The only (slight problem) that I've mentioned a few times, is the fact that the J&J barrel is much thinner than the stock AB Barrel. Since the front ring where the barrel goes through is not adjustable, the ceramic barrel will have some wiggle room. A few strands of well placed electrical tape solves that problem for good.

Well do you have an A5 or an autococker? get whichever one you have. Unless you relly like the look of a 16 inch barrel get a 14 inch. Doesn't matter what gun or what settings you may have, 14 inch.
