Ok I already know the answer. Personally i like 6.03 and 6.05. But other snipers keep saying 6.01 and keep calling me retarded when I say you realize that at long range 6.03 and 6.05 are better than a 6.01

So I need your opinion.
Which is better. 6.01 vs 6.03 vs 6.05
Lets pretend its made by a good company like PDI or EDGI.
Which would you take for sniping?

I would disagree with the 6.05 statement, in my experiences the 6.05's I have shot have not been very accurate, 6.02 and 6.03 has been right on the money for me and is what I prefer. Also I like a huge 750 mm length barrel. (JK that last part was for you inthetallgrass)

Imo airsoft tuning is like mining for gold. Everyone has their opinions on what yields the best results. That being said I think that the quality of the bore and the quality of the crown plays bigger roles then the ID of the inner barrel. It isn't like we are dealing with twisted barrels where the compression behind the projectile is just as important as the number of twists inside that barrel.

Here's something to consider, bb size. If people start stating which is best, they should say what bbs they are using with the barrel. I think the bb size has a lot to do with the size of the barrel. Obviously, the large the bb, the larger the barrel needs to be. I think that it isn't so much a perfect bore size, but a perfect gap between the bbs and the barrel. I imagine this number to be about .06-.08 mm, thus most bbs will do well in 6.03 barrels, while smaller bbs might preform best in 6.01 barrels. Just an idea I thought I'd drop out there, I still think the quality is way more important than the size of the barrel anyway.

It better have been a joke...lol.
It all depends on what bb, barrel AND hop up your using. Everyone forgets that the hop up can effect accuracy drastically too.

So lets say everyone is using a PDI barrel, common as chips Gaurder rubber and let's say madbull BB's. (.3g for consistency in manufacture) Then we would be able to compare barrel bores assuming they are all the same PDI brand barrel.

Most bbs are made at 5.9 standard. Heavier bbs don't change the diameter of the said bb. Also I didn't mention the hop up because the OP was talking about inner barrels alone. Hop helps deliver accuracy in a different way.
Yes but everytime you mount a barrel the rubber etc. is slightly different. Also most BB's are 5.95. All I'm saying is use what suits you and there is no "One true" combo.

If installed right the variance should be negligible. Also, the same thing with the hop up shifting during testing. Since the chance of the nub or rubber shifting during testing should be the same in all the barrels. This would leave the increase in accuracy to the barrels only if you use the same nub, rubber, hop up unit, and hop up settings. The main thing is that every time you retest you should get the same results.

There are FAR to many variables to consider when you are thinking about an inner barrel.

I have had great luck with a wide range of barrels, some 6.00 and some 6.08, it all really depends on what you are wanting the rifle to do.


In my CQB rifle that I made, used a UTG 324, and then a UTG MK96, I used a 6.08 inner barrel and had great success with the rifle. Because I was shooting at 350 fps and the ranges were nothing extreme. I was able to hit very accurately with the rifle, and was able to use just about any kind of ammo that I had on hand. And in a fast passed CQB game you will throw a ton of bb's down range, and having a bolt rifle is no exception.

I have had quite a few long range rifles that have loved the 6.03 inner barrels. Some in the 450 fps range and some in the 550 fps range, and a few higher to be honest ;) And the 6.03 inner barrel was much better than a 6.00 or the 6.05+ barrels that I had at the time.


In all of my testing, and tuning, I have never really had a rifle that liked the 6.00 barrels.






The barrels that I had ranged from EdGi, PDI, Prommy, and MadBull. All were a range of sizes as well as lengths.

Hey, im going to upgrade to 450-470fps on my vsr-10 g-spec, and i really think laylax 6.03 (70euros) wins pdi 6.01 (~135euros)
I play at dense woods with swamps and at a field surrounded with semi-dense forest and swamp.
Shooting goldenball/bioval 0.4g and g&g/blaster devil 0.3g.
Question is, which barrel would you guys prefer?

I guess that makes me the 'traditional' thinker here...

I've tried the following:
-EdGI 6.00x430 ported
-Laylax 6.03x430
DBC 6.01x430
TM Precision 6.04x430
PDI 6.01x430
Madbull 6.03x455
PDI 6.01x430 10mm Bull barrel
JG 6.06x430
CA 6.04x509
MadMause 6.01x430
PDI 6.05x407

....Of all of these, I found the best consistency at all ranges using the PDI 6.01x430 10mm Bull barrel.

The BBs used were washed WE/Madbull .40g at field velocity limit. All FPS recordings (by average per barrel) were within 10% muzzle energy (2.6j-2.8j) of any other barrel used. (FPS deviation per shot did not exceed 3fps, save for the JG and MadBull) with the exception of the stock JG barrel, which had recorded numbers somewhat lower and more deviant than the rest.

This is by no means a definitive argument for tighter=better, merely my observations on the matter. As I'm sure most of you would agree, your mileage may vary based on different parts and conditions.
