Bit late there Liz!!
The fronts only differ in their porting, heavily ported barrels tend to be a bit quieter then less ported barrels, heavily ported barrels are a bit of a paint to clean should you get a break Don't think there are any other performance issues.
What an informative thread - all before lunch too!
I think I read on this board somewhere that a good way of cleaning ported barrels is to dunk the barrel into deep water (a 2ltr coke bottle with the top cut off, for example) and fire a few shots into it... is that a GOOD or BAD thing to do?
Should be fine as long as you get all the water out of the porting, a few dozen dry fires with a bung in should achieve this!!
enough about freaks, you freaks (couldn't resist). so what's the best bore size for each position in tourny play, especially a back player?
What bore size for each position what ever bore fits your paint!
If you mean length I'd say
14" Mid & Back.
Your mom - did you mean to say barrel length rather than bore size?
Most barrels are 12 or 14 inch - I really wouldn't have thought 2 inches of extra travel in the barrel would make a significant difference to your game unless you're shooting tin cans from 100ft.
Well here's a good one - would you say that barrel length is more important for accuracy, or a good bore/ball fit?
Like, would it be a better investment to go for a 12" barrel and build up a collection of inserts, or plump for a 14" fixed bore?
Well a barrel of a certain length should help gain distance, but it's no good getting paint an extra 30ft if the balls are going 5ft wide of the target!
