I recently bought a Tippmann A5 and have been getting a lot of upgrades for it.  Among them include the Apex 2 barrel and a G36 shroud.  There is one problem though.  I got the 12in barrel as I know that in most cases the accuracy doesn't improve much after 10 to 12 inches but I have trouble getting barrel screwed onto the gun with the shroud.  

As the Apex is designed to rotate to do trick shots I need to lenghten the barrel by a few inches and need to extend the barrel by 2-4 inches.  

I did a search for barrel extensions and so far haven't found anything.  Does anyone know of a good extension just to get my barrel a few extra inches in length?

You might want to consider adding a bore kit like the one offered by TechT. The extension goes between the marker and your barrel effectively extending your barel by approx 2 inches. In addition, you would be able to match your bore to the size paint you are using adding to your accuracy esp when not using the Apex. I have intentionally bought barrels in 10 and 12 inch lengths with this intention. I think you will like the results.
