    Favorite twist-lock barrel

    So, what's yours?

    I always favored the classic 12" All American or the 10/12" Dye Ultralite.

    Lo

    Pfff... All American. Pfff....

    *struggles to remember*

    I think my fave was a J&J Ceramic... but I really had no taste in barrels back then. Let's be honest.

    When rocking a classic, the calgar likes the classic barrels... Dye Stainless, J&J brass or nickel-plated brass, BOA nickel-plated brass... An All-A works in a pinch, but the calgar does not like SP.

    I'm with you Lo, the old SP AA's were great on mags - I preferred 14" myself.

    Second to that would probably be the old glued boomy, also at 14".
    Current markers: Not as many as teh Calgar

    I've got a shorty (8" or 10") Dye stainless. Love it.

    J & J's were and still are good solid barrels. Back when I played with tippmans I had 2 a 14" and a 16" I still got them. My dad has a new 16" on his Proto Rail. Good barrels.

    OT

    A slight aside... having broken out the almighty calipers to test the wide variance of bore sizes at the tip and tail of many ceramics/edge elite pieces, I'd have to say that their "tolerances" are suspect, at best. J&J's quality has really taken a nosedive in recent years.
