Choosing the right barrel can make all the difference in accuracy, efficiency, and consistency. However, you can't just choose any old barrel. You need to take into account things like your marker, playstyle, and field position when choosing a barrel.
There are many different markers in the paintball world, and all of those markers have a specific type of threading to attach the barrel. "Autocockr" threads come on markers from companies like Planet Eclipse, Dye, and Empire, while markers like the Tippmann 98 and US Army Project Salvo have Tippmann 98 threads. So make sure when choosing a barrel that you get the right thread or your barrel will be useless.
Your playstyle also effects what barrel is right for you. If you're a front player that needs to stay tight in your bunker then a 12"-14" barrel may be your best bet, but if you're a back player or a woodsball player then a 16" barrel may help to keep trees and other debris out of your way while firing.
One more important thing to think about is bore size. The inner diameter of your barrel is called your bore size. The better the paintball fits into the barrel, the more air power can be directed at moving the paintball, thus increasing your efficiency, consistency, and accuracy in most cases. If you're an experience player then a barrel kit may be right for you. Several different bore sizes that attach to a single front so you can custom fit your barrel to whatever paintball you're using.
Overall, your barrel is a primary factor in the performance of your marker. Make sure you take in all the information you can to make the most informed decsion possible.
