TipX barrel question

So I was thinking about getting a pair of the stock a-5 barrels to run on my TipX's sometimes (mostly for looks, I've done the research and I don't honestly expect a performance increase of any kind).
However, a fairly skilled airsmith told me over the weekend that this would be a bad idea because there is some difference in how the back part of the barrel is set up for the a-5 vs the Tipx (something to do with the way the ball travels in front of the bolt being slightly different in each gun or some such theory).
Anyway, does anyone have experience with this setup? any issues? tips?
