    Ok, so I just purchased a Madbull 590mm 6.03 tightbore barrel. I've seen a lot of mixed opinions about whether or not a bore-up kit is really worth it. I already have a Type 0 Cylinder.

    Thoughts?

    I've heard bore up kits out extra strain on the motor. Idk if it's true though

    Put in the barrel. See how it works. It's honestly the only way to see if it will work

    In my experience they make little to no difference. But you can't find good o-rings in a bore-up size, so I would just stick to regular.

    I would just cut down and re-crown the barrel if I were you. 590mm is just redundant. 455mm is ideal for an AEG.

    what fps and bb weight? heavier bb's require longer barrel length.

    I agree with Adman234, 590mm is longer than necessary, you can get great accuracy and compression with barrels as short as 250mm if you know what you're doing. It's pretty much a myth that shorter barrels are inaccurate, it is a bit more difficult to get good compression with very short barrels, but not impossible.

    Exactly why do you need a longer barrel to use heavier bb's?

    heavier bbs take longer to reach maximum velocity (requiring longer barrel).

    I'll check it out when it comes in the mail. I only went with that long of a barrel because I'm trying to give my gun the sniper look. Lol

    Yeah, I did the same with my first real gun.

    The inner barrel doesn't need to extend all the way through the outer and silencer.

    Ok, cool. That's good to know. I went ahead and ordered a 509mm as well.
