About the Madbull L96 APS2 Black Python Tight Bore Barrel
The Madbull Black Python series inner barrels are excellent upgrades for those wanting more accuracy, velocity, and range. This particular model is made specifically for L96 type sniper rifles and similar clones which requires a APS2 cut with a 499mm length inner barrel.
Q: What benefits do tight bore barrels give and how?
A: A tighter constriction from your barrel means the BB is bouncing around less causing deviations as it exits your barrel. This constriction also creates more pressure over the standard barrel so it increases your velocity as a result. The slight bump in power and added accuracy extends your effective range by a little bit as well (though you should not confuse raw power as range).
Q: What diameter should I get?
A: This is a 6.03mm inner barrel which gives you a greatly improved accuracy but won't be very finicky. What we mean is tight bore barrels require more cleaning and are very sensitive to bad ammo. Rigorous maintenance should be performed and feed your rifle only the best and you will not have problems. A tighter bore barrel could give you even more accuracy and velocity but likelihood of a jam when conditions are not ideal is more likely. Most stock barrels are 6.05mm inner diameter or larger amd you can find barrels anywhere from 6.00mm to 6.03mm. On average, BBs have a 5.93-5.98mm diameter. You can see with the variances how easily you could jam up your barrel with the slightest hint of dirt or BB deformity. High quality BBs tend to observe strict tolerances coming in at about 5.95mm +- 0.01mm. Generally 6.03mm is recommended as it is still pretty forgiving and nets you visible positive results right away.
Q: What is "VSR-10 compatible"?
A: In terms of aftermarket sniper barrels such as this, VSR-10 compatible refers to a certain cut in the barrel making it compatible with VSR-10 rifles hopup units and similar. The Echo1 M28 uses the same style for convenience and there are a number of VSR-10 clones on the market that could use this barrel too. This barrel is NOT VSR-10 compatible. It is designed specifically for L96 APS2 style sniper rifles.
Q: How do you install this barrel?
A: Take this to a qualified airsoft tech for a professional install. Taking apart the M28 and similar is very intricate and there are plenty of small parts to lose or damage if done incorrectly. We do not recommend you experiment or attempt installation without proper research and experience. Attempted installation of upgrade parts voids your warranty on your gun (if it is still brand new) and we will not accept returns on any parts as well. Please do your homework before purchase.
