Phantom one piece barrels. 2012

So I love my stock barrel when I have paint that fits. However, as you all know this will not always be the case, each time you buy a case ( ). I've been running into smaller and smaller paint. So, I'm going to purchase a new barrel.
I've been looking at perhaps a Stiffi and I think Flasc had one on ebay. Are there any other barrels out there with a small bore size(that shoot well of course)? Used the search but was barraged by b/s/t stuff and the ones that were not were old. Hence the 2012 in the tittle.
Just not a fan of kits. The ridge in the barrel annoys me.
Leaning towards Stiffi since Flasc seems to be more into the market for looks.
Your suggestions?

I 2nd this, all the Phantoms I owned I had freak bored and they shoot great and look nice and sleek and match the factory anno. Mike makes great barrels, but pre renting roll outs is key for the best accuracy. If your ball rolls forward even just 1/2 an inch it will heavily effect your accuracy. The freak inserts will also help with efficiency, I had a dropout equipped duck slide and with all stock internals it would get north of 40 shots off a 12 grand every time.

All due to the magic of muzzle breaks

And for the freak bore, I hear sometimes they wobble? Perhaps they just don't go to the right guy? Also, it would cause a lip in the barrel yes? Wouldn't this hurt accuracy? I'll be glad if I'm wrong, don't want to be stuck using paint that doesn't fit on a FPO field.

Send it to Super Stanchy if you can. He does great work and my barrel is done really nice.

Yes it has a step in the barrel but it goes from small to big. So no it does not hurt the accuracy. The Freaks actually help your accuracy.

Something else you might want to read is the sticky thread about the integrated muzzle break on the CCI barrel...That really is the secret to the barrel.

If you want something a little tighter than the stock barrel, look at the nickel plated CCI barrels. If memory serves they are something like 0.003" smaller than standard.
