    I have a echo1 covert. For the price i paid its a great gun. it comes stock with a 6.06mm barrel that is 455mm in length. So i was wondering which would be better a 6.03 or 6.01?
    Also my gun is shooting stock at 418fps so how much high would a tightbore take it up? Thanks for the help

    The bore diameter isn't as important as the quality of the bore. Theoretically, the 6.03 is better, however if the bore consistency isn't good, and you compare it to a 6.01 with a good bore consistency, the 6.01 will out perform it.

    To add onto this, a perfect quality 6.03 vs. a perfect quality 6.01 will perform exactly the same, minus jamming of lower quality bbs and FPS.

    Not exactly, but close. I would go with 6.03
