    I have a UK Arms M24 sniper rifle. It is working well so far, but I am looking into upgrading it. My first upgrade i'm looking at is a TB barrel. Does anyone know any compatible barrels?

    It's the same gun as the Echo 1 M28.
    Echo 1 just rebrands it.

    Really? I know they're very similar. Thanks though, I'll look into M28 parts

    Assuming the M28 is a direct copy of the UK Arms M24, then your barrel bore will be 6.03 and look like the brass barrel in the picture below. The top barrel in the picture is a drop-in replacement barrel marketed by Airsoft GI, and it is 6.01...

    The hop-up windows are similar, and the barrel works great in my M28. Here is the link to the 6.01 from Airsoft GI:

    Although currently out of stock, you can request that Airsoft GI restocks this item. Good luck to you sire.

    Did the Echo 1 m28's barrel fit and work properly in the UK arms m24?

    This is an old thread... Lol.

    Never ended up trying it so far. I'm focusing on my kit and AEG upgrades now.
