    I am totally clueless. I have a Well MB01 sniper and am looking to upgrade it. I have read all the forums, watched all the videos, and i just cannot pick up on the technical talk. I am the type that just needs a specific list of what to get. Anyways, accuracy first so i am looking at a hop up, barrel, and bucking. I cannot find a great 499mm tbb that will match a pdi hopup unit (sawing down the barrel is not an option). I hear the pdi can take AEG barrels and i found the oerfect madbull barrel but i am lead to believe they will not work together. I'll make a link to them both and you can tell me. Also, i will try to R hop the barrel (if i can just find one!!!) and so i need to have a barrel i can do that with. Anyways, here are the links, are they compatible? If not, PLEASE, tell me or link to me a good set that is. Also, bucking, please recommend.

    If you are as clueless as you state, i highly recommend you take your gun to a tech or send it off to one. They Will be able to find you the correct parts and install them correctly. If you are determined to get the parts yourself, you should call evike (or another retailer) tell them what you have and what kind of parts you want, they should be able to put together a list for you out of the stock they carry.

    I am a sniper tech, um honestly Zaryk is right... I think you should send it or take it to a gun tech, they will know what you want and they will know the parts and everything, just ft a little bit extra money you could have the gun upgraded without you doing anything besides telling the tech what you want some, and paying him, and shipping the package... It's simple, easy, and that's why there are techs... Just trying to help, and honestly it's hard to tell what would fit in a "Well mb01" I had a "Well mb10" I assume it's similar to a Well mb10 but, take my advice or don't, good luck with the upgrades!

    I really appreciate the help guys but if i wanted to go to them to assemble and order i would have. Simply put, are the links i gave compatible with each other and my rifle? I believe the Well MB05 runs off the type 96 platform. To simplify my question more, does that barrel fit in that hop up, yes or no?

    Quick update, i called three different places and none were able to help me. I feel completely screwed in my inability to find a proper barrel to fit the pdi hopup and my mb05.

    To anyone out there, please link to me a good quality barrel that is 6.03mm and at a length of 470 to 499mm that will work with my listed pdi hop up. Seriously...please.

    okay first off don't call places they will tell you to buy what they have in stock and at most places its crap, evike for example would be like buy angel customs, bad idea
    for parts id stay away from the pdi hop up as it is super hard to get the bbs to shoot straight with that chamber instead look into the Action Army hop up chamber
    Link:http://www.idotactical.com/action-army-type-96-hop-up-chamber-for-maruzen-aps2-utg/
    or
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Action-Army...591471?hash=item1a0b87afef:g:2j8AAOSwBahU0Tc4

    for a barrel id go with a prommy barrel
    Link:http://www.evike.com/products/24388/

    or for a good cheap option: http://www.clandestineairsoft.com/barrels-c-1_34/zci-499mm-602mm-stainless-steel-barrel-p-695.html

    Note the prommy barrel will be better

    bucking id go with prommy purple
    http://www.evike.com/products/31081/
    with http://www.evike.com/products/37761/

    although id go with r hop if you can
    you could also flat hop the bucking as well up to you

    while i'm at it other parts you may want

    Barrel spacers? http://www.idotactical.com/action-army-inner-barrel-spacer-fit-with-maruzen-type-96/



    to answer your question I don't think the pdi barrel will fit, it seems to be a barrel just for the stock hop up, the pdi, action army hop ups take normal aeg barrels and not special l96 barrels

    Yes it will work but that's not a prommy barrel it's an evike brand barrel, not the best, at that point just go with the zci one but I'd recommend the prommy one
    Look around on other sites they may have a longer one but that was the longest one in stock on evike that wasn't over 500mm
