Yup as I sent in PM.

Other barrel options: (great for freak boring as they are cheap as hell )

Thunder Pig barrel 12 and 9" both on ANS gear for 3$ because they are on sale.
Taso's 1 peice stealth barrel 14" is 5$ on sale.

Both are awesome barrels to freak, and are a few years older which has a bit of and old school look to them.

Personally I think the Lotus barrels (from furious paintball) would match the milling of the Reg you chose, and flow with the body of your cocker.

Paintball Inc Autococker Barrel 12 Inch - Chrome

some PI barrel that has funky lines to it. would match the body well.

I know you said you planned to have the whole thing Re anno'd so im not really worried about colours.

Hahah , Nope. Just not willing to settle over getting what I want. Not this time at least.

That way you could add either a python/ifit kit or the AKA bottlenecks and have the length of barrel that you want while still keeping the same barrel and look.
I was un-aware that was even possible. I'll look into this as well when the time comes.

Don't have one at the moment, planning on getting one once one actually appears for sale.
I'll PM you when I do buy one/looking at one.

If they are autococker threaded and you have access to someone with a lathe you can do the wire detent mod which I came up with some years back. Check out Post #26 in this old thread;
Automag style ball detent in cocker barrels?

Another option I read about being used on a PMI Trracer was to drill a small hole just behind the seating surface and insert a short tuft of knitting wool which sticks into the bore about a 1/4 inch or so. It holds the ball from falling through but won't hold it back once the air puffs it out.

A couple of members here did some accuracy testing a couple of years back for seriously overbored, perfect and underbored ball fitting and found that it didn't affect accuracy all that much. All that occured was that the sloppy fitting bores use a little more air to achieve velocity. The biggest contributor to accuracy I found is using decent quality paint that is freshly made. Mishapen and uneven shells due to poor manufacturing controls or simply from aging ruins accuracy far more than any barrel to ball fit.
I had a "Paintball God" moment once.
Like Al Bundy's Polk High football moment I live on
for the slim chance of repeating that one time
miracle in some small way.........

I used a PPS barrel with wedgits for quite a few years. It was great for whenever the paint was inconsistantly sized. I never had to change inserts just shoot. Always shoot good. The barrel was heavy as it was 14 inches of nickel plated brass, and they are expensive.

Bottlenecks would get you the bore size and not add much to the length.

AKA Paintball

Thanks everyone. I'll wind up using one of the suggestions soon.
