i would be into the idea if you could make up some with threaded tips for scenario markers. i would run one if it could use hammerhead and lapco tips. other than that, i already have a lot of barrels, freak, hammer head, lapco, and the list goes on....
i also second the rifled for first strikes idea.

I don't want to discourage you from getting into this market (paintball barrels and accessories), I think this industry needs more innovators and options. What I do want to discourage is another vendor who shows up offering more of the same for a negligible price difference. Embrace the growing milsim and magfed segments. Look into rifled offerings (there are only 2 current manufactures of rifled First Strike barrels, and neither has really nailed it). Give me a reason to buy your product other than a low price. If you do that I'm sure you will go far.

I wouldn't mind seeing one piece barrels 13 inches in 670, 675, and 680 cocker threaded and phantom threaded. I'd like the raw option, too. I have several projects in work.

I vote 11. And if you could make it in 3 different bore sizes that would be ideal + the freak boring. And make the bore size continuous, not just stop at a certain point.
Sizes to consider:
.679, .683 and .687.
That being, if a ball is under .682, you can add the freak insert .679 and have the rest of the barrel the same length. OR, if a ball is say .684, we can use the .683 with a .682 freak insert. And so on. But I would say .679 is also idea for a small bore because say for example someone is using a .676 paintball or something. Freak inserts (at least the mass produced one) go down to .675. That way you can use the .675 and the .679 will not be that much bigger of a barrel throughout. It should make for a more accurate shot, as opposed to having a .675 insert that is only about 5 or so inches of a control bore and then a .690 barrel for example for the rest of the bore.
- Cocker threaded is a given, but if you really want to sell a lot more, you should make these for phantoms also. Then you'd really make a killing. Just remember phantom barrels are smaller in diameter than cocker barrels.
