Cylinders and Barrels?

About 15mins ago I saw a thread that was talking about Cylinder length compared to Barrel length, I'm going to ask you guys because theres no one on AO that has as much experience with Spring rifles as you guys do.


jist of conversation: The larger or shorter the barrel in you gun, the larger or shorter the cylinder should be in the gun too. They stated that this should match(509mm barrel to M16 cylinder).

my Q: Does this not also apply to spring rifles? If it does what are the appropriate lengths for the barrels with the stock cylinders? And finally, Would a bore up cylinder be needed instead of a larger cylinder(I just saw these boreup cylingers on UN company I think).

Thanks guys, I dont even know if this applies to spring rifles.

Thanks for the replies guys,

I wasn't really worried that I would have the suck but I just didn't know if there was a correct length to optomise the airflow..

Vindicare: was that with a stock cylinder? Luckily the smith that upgraded my gun put in an M16 length cylinder when I upgraded my barrel :) .

Thanks again. I'll try to get the link tonight, I can't copy paste on an I touch :)
