What's your opinion on inner barrels? What's the best metal; brass, steel, aluminum? What sizes work best? What are your experiences with the barrels you've used? What brands? What lengths? What were the best and worst results you've had?

It all really depends on what you are wanting to do with the rifle you are putting the barrel into ;)


I have had some really good PDI, laylax, Madbull, EdGi, and DB custom inner barrels. And all of them were different lengths, from 280mm out to 575mm, as well as different inner diameter.

They all worked and they all didn't work. Like I said in the beginning, it all depends on the system that the barrel is in, and how you are wanting to use it.


And the other thing that you will have to consider with a question like this ....... is that every one has a different set of "what is good, and what is crap". Everyone is going to assess the barrels differently.

That's a first for steel. What length newbie?
I have had great success with anywhere between 450 and 509 in length. I have a 590 in my MB05 right now and it didnt increase any performance other than dropping my FPS by 20 but it looks cool and is still deadly so I keep it in there.

To add to the material conversation Brass is a harmonic metal (think trumpets and such) hence it carries way more vibration than a stainless steel barrel. Since I have nothing better to do right now I am planning on purchasing some lesser quality barrels made by some of the cloe manufacturers to see how they compare to some of the more midrange barrels out there like deepfire. I am not trying to reinvent the wheel so I will not be comparing them to PDI as we all know they are in the top tier

I like my PDI 6.01 steel barrel (430mm); however, I have to clean it quite often. I want to get another barrel in 6.03 and compare the two. I can place a BB on top of another at 50 ft, which is good enough for me. Also, the barrel has no scratches in it after 2 years of use because I use quality ammo I guess.
