The paintball barrel is obviously one of the most important parts of your paintball gun. This paintball gun part which is also known as the launch tube ensures that your paintball is going in a straight trajectory which can mean the difference between and accurate shot and missing your target completely.

Paintball barrels come in a variety of materials including aluminum, brass, ceramic and stainless steel. Each has their own pros and cons. The basic premise behind a paintball barrel is that you want as little friction within the barrel as possible. This protects paintballs from cracking inside the barrel, increases speed of ejection and improves accuracy. Paintball barrels also come in both single parts and split parts. While two part paintball barrels are more expensive, they usually combine materials like stainless steel which reduces friction substantially and aluminum which is much lighter so as to not impede the playability of your paintball marker. The paintball barrel that your gun comes with should work well on its own, but consider your paintball marker and your needs if you decide to buy an aftermarket paintball barrel that might constitute an upgrade. Consider the brand of marker you have, your strengths as a player and your budget. A new paintball barrel can elevate your level of play significantly, so invest wisely and enjoy the benefits!
