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.

Ok so...
Barrel is clean, and hop up fits. Ill measure the length tommorow, and im new to opening up guns so I have no idea what the bucking does or what could be wrong with it.
Yeah just over 350 and the guy at the local shop installed it for me. I'm sitting in with him whenever he does work to guns to find out how to do it. What do you mean put it back together? I cleaned the barrel before he installed it. Here's exactly what happened when he changed it:
-Took upper off lower receiver
-Slid out inner barrel and hop up assembly
-Took inner barrel out of hop up assembly
-Had trouble getting thin rubber sleeve out of hop up assembly
-Got it out, sprayed silicone oil on it, slid it onto tightbore
-Reassembled it

Could he have damaged the thin rubber sleeve when he was getting it out?
Ah thank you. Yes he sprayed silicone oil inside and out and made sure the whole thing was coated. I'll redo it tomorrow. Thanks again!
Ok so now to update and clear a couple things up:
1. Wiped off all silicone oil that I could inside and its shooting much better!
2. Its officially 108 meters to the base of the tree give or take 1-2 meters due to me climbing over a hedge and a fence. (see pics)

Shooting at right around 550 with a .2 but I have no idea with the .36s that I use. It's hitting the target (bare part of tree) 7-8 times out of 10 times. I used a meter wheel clicker thing that rolls on the ground and clicks every meter to measure. When I got to the hedge I stood up a ladder so I'd know where to start from, walked around the hedge and continued. Now it is about 108 meters to the base of the tree, but since the target is part way up doesn't it shorten the distance a bit? As for internals it has a new hop up rubber, tightbore, deans connectors, new spring, motor, and piston. I take no credit what so ever for installing them, because I'm just not comfortable with possibly throwing away $800 and the parts.
The target is probably about 4 feet tall and at least 2 wide but could be more. The tech is the owner of the store. My bipod is a saw horse since I'm aiming upwards. I'll try to take a video tomorrow or Friday if my phone comes in.
