lapco big shot barrels

Will be picking up a 12" .681 next week. Will I be able to use the stock cci pump handle? I have only seen pictures with under cocking so I assume no. I just want to make sure.

Yes, although mine is slightly tighter on my pump handle as compared to my CCI. I just apply a little silicone lube to the inside of the pump handle.

You'll like the LAPCO "Microshot" barrel in .681" with small paint. It'll drive tacks.

I've always been a big fan of the Lapco Phantom barrels. Best aftermarket barrel I've tried actually. I own an older set Big Shot, Sure Shot and Micro Shot), and haven't noticed that they were any tighter in the pump than the stock barrel. I plan on picking up at least one of the new Big Shot .681 barrels towards the end of summer, so please post up how you like it when it comes in.

I also love the lapco phantom barrels. I have a .681 and .684, those coupled with the stock phantom barrel for the rare large paint days are every bit as versatile as a freak set and in my opinion they shoot so much better. Full length control bore is where it's at.

Thanks for the info. I will let you know how it works out. Most of the time i use marballizers, any info with these balls ? 500 rounds gets me 2 weeks of play and I have noticed the ball size change when I neglect them. So for those large paint days if I was to use a lapco .681 barrel I would think I would be braking Balls and should stick with a stock barrel with a dent .

The Dave said it best.

When "fashion" counts, and I can't bear to have my Urban Camo Phantom be seen with an all black barrel, and the paint is tiny, I slap on the .681" LAPCO Microshot.

Mid-size paint gets the .687" CCI Nickel.

The "big stuff", .688" + gets the Urban Camo stock barrel, and the rings.

Slim, I'll mail you mine if you want to try it before you buy. PM me your address brother.........

These things are worth the money. I got mine from Chaos for under $50.00.
Go for it.

Thanks for the offer El Jeffe, but no need. I've got 4 Lapco barrels now so I know what to expect as far as quality and performance. I am a Lapco fan!!!

And I was mistaken, the older medium-sized barrel from Lapco wasn't called the "sure shot", it was called the "Auto Spirit". I've got two of those which are bored at .687. The old Big Shot I have is .690 and the old Micro Shot is .684.

BTW, I just checked out the Lapco website and see that they offer a two-piece barrel as well - the Lapco "Snap Shot". They claim it's offered in a variety of lengths (10" to 18"), but all they seem to have for Phantoms are 12" and 14". The bad news is that it only comes in .689, and I don't know who would ever bother buying a bore bigger than the stock CCI barrel. You'd probably get about 10 shots per 12-gram with that thing, provided you could get a shot off before the pellet rolled out the barrel. Looks like the one-piece Big Shot is the way to go.

The lapco's are great barrels, I use a 4-set with cocker threaded equipment, and have a 681 for the phantom. If you aren't running 12grams, you can paint nail-polish (any color) around the inside of the barrel (I made 4 strips about 1" into the barrel), and this works wonders to prevent any roll outs, can't comment on efficiency as I run 13ci.

To answer the OP's question, no undercocking required, and I didn't notice any different rubbing on my setup.

I've got a micro shot. Great barrel and works with RPS paint really well.
