Odd tightbore experience

2399 Views 17 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  explosive
So I just put a tightbore barrel in my ARES M110, and I have a bit of a predicament. Well before I put a tightbore in it, it had a spread of a bit less than an 8.5"x11" at ~160 feet. It could also max out hitting a human size target at ~225. Now with a tightbore in it, its groupings at ~160 feet are probably 9.5"x 12", but its max range for a human size target is 350+ feet. Whats going on here? I should add that the tightbore comes out to about half way through the suppressor.

3 possible problems.

1) The barrel is not properly cleaned out.
2) Th hop-up or bucking does not suit the barrel
3) The barrel is too long (Over 425mm) Thus less accurate for an AEG IMO.

Or if you gave the gun maintenance when you put in the new barrel you could have messed something up.
Yeah it could be that the bucking and nub aren't a great combination. TBH like it's probobly best to stick with a single brend like - Gaurder hop-up chamber - Gaurder rubber and nub but not a gaurder barrel cause they are crap.
