So I'm back to my roots, I need some barrel bore advice

I started playing in 1990. I miss the old style and want to go back to the classic style of play. I grabbed a Check it classic sniper. I've read that I should under bore the barrel....but I just need to know what barrel bore size works best. Any Brands you recommend??? It seems most are 685-693.
Thanks in advance

the bore you need is based upon the paint you use. No one can choose that for you except you. That is why most people have multiple backs/barrels. I like TI longbow barrrels.

If you're looking for smaller bore barrels, Eigenbarrels are .678, Lapco Picoshots are .682 (Both of these are made in limited runs and go pretty quick),SP Freak inserts go down to .679, Tymcneer Freak inserts are 670 675 680, Tech T iFits go from 693-667, Lapco Cocker bore sizers come in 676 680 683 685, Flasc barrels go down to 679 iirc, and countless kits go down to 679~682.

My freak backs for my deadlywind almost always "blow test" at .689, some paint I've had to use .687, but not very often. It depends on the humidity where you live, ask people at your field what they use, or see if anyone has a boresizer.

Also, everyone boresizes differently, some underbore, some overbore, some just make it stick. AGD did some tests with powder-lined barrels a while back, so thats what I go by. Find what works best for you though.

Try to keep your control bore longer than 4" it seems to help.
