fair question. many pumpers rely of the first shot to make the elimination such that they can immediately quit shooting and move on to the next target. If that one shot is very very quiet there is a good chance they can make multiple eliminations before being detected. Roll outs, misses and loud barrels ruin their chances.

Many semi players start shooting and then walk their string into the target, or simply put up a quick burst of paint working gaining accuracy through volume. In effect they blow their position on the first target. Quiet is still arguably better, just not not nearly as critical. Same argument for precision craftsmanship.

short answer - there's no real difference.

Longer answer - the post above this one is right one - pumpers care more about rollouts since it can majorly effect your game.

But overall you want sound reduction, efficiency and consistency from your barrel. Those are all easy to achieve with many available barrels so while they may not be huge differences there's no reason not to try to get them.

Welcome to the east coast Mr. Tightstick. At last we meet.
Big thanks DRG - speedy delivery. Can't wait to take it for a test drive.
First impression: Lapco's internal shine puts most others to shame. simply amazing.
My calipers say the control bore is .681 and step bored front is .704ish

edit more British pron:

The marbs shot great.. but then again marbs always shoot great... The Black Lable shot decent out to 100 ft, then hooked pretty hard.. just like always...

I'm thinking this might be the ticket for sub .684 paint - The jury is still out.

I'm very curious to hear what the other early buyers think.

Prety nice looking barrel, nice to see people making sub .683 bore. So now i'm torn between this one and the eigen barrel. This one looks nice, i'm just not a fan of the ribbed dildo bottom look.

That does look really sexy. I have never seen that before (given I have only been in this sport for 2 years). I dont think it looks dildo-ish at all but I get what folks are saying.
