    Im looking for a decent, 120ft accuracy atleast rifle, that's also easy to move with. I'm a small guy but love to snipe. Only problem is I cant carry around a huge rifle. I was looking at the KJW MK V2 gas sniper of AGI , but I need some suggestions.
    EDIT . Budget is probably $100-$170

    120 ft accuracy you can reach fairly easily with an AEG you considered just upgrading something you currently have?

    I have an A&K s-system that I was thinking about upgrading. It shoot 300fps and is accurate to about 90ft. Im thinking about making it 380fps+ any suggestions on what else.

    I know I need a new hop-up. Mine sucks.

    Get a tightbore barrel and a good bucking, madbull blue is what I recommend, regrease reshim and you should get 120 ft no problem, maybe put a m110 spring in there.

    Thanks for suggestion. What diameter should I go with 6.02? Have a little bit of leeway for un-perfect bb's?

    Uh 6.02 is a bit rare 6.03 is generally advised 6.01 is better for anything closer than 100 ft and 6.03 is better for further than 100 ft. so yeah for you 6.03

    The tighter the barrel, the hotter the velocity. The looser the barrel the better the "carry" or distance.

    Opposite of what marine had stated. The diagram isn't that hard to understand.

    Look at the bottom of it where it shows the four barrels.

    You do realize I said 6.01 for closer than 100 feet and 6.03 for further than 100.....which is what you're saying tighter closer looser further....check your reading skills it's not like I'm writing in japanese.

    Assigning distances on the diameter of a barrel isn't wise. There are many bolt actions that use 6.01 and do not engage under 100 feet (pending velocity/upgrades.)

    Even with a 6.01 jamming will not be an issue, and in my opinion, a tbb is more based on the brand rather than the inner diameter.

    I'm looking at
    Bravo Steel 6.03mm High Precision Inner Barrel for M4-A1 ( 363mm ). Yes? No?

    If you get a tbb you really want quality. I highly recomend that you get a promethous tbb. It is much more expensive but worth it. Also, if you want accuracy and range you should work on your hop up. You can fine tune it which is free and there is a great stickey on how to do it.

    No. Bravo is a horrible company. Tightness and length mean almost nothing compared to quality. Get a Promethous. I would take a promy 6.30 over a bravo 6.03. No that wasn't a typo.

    Ok so what barrel length do you recommend if you know this so well? 6.01 or 6.03? 6.02 not included too few of them. Also you do know he isn't using a bolt action gun?

    From what I heard 6.03mm and 455mm long is the optimum length.
