I'm quite new the the Airsoft bolt action sniper system, and I'm looking to upgrade a Well l96 mb08.
will a Madbull 407mm SteelBull Stainless Steel 6.03 Tightbore Barrel fit a Well L96 MB-08?

Nope. If you're going to use an AEG barrel you'll need a hop up chamber to match. The Action Army one is excellent. And when you get an AEG barrel check it's for the standard AEG hop and not one of the oddball types. There are a couple of TM guns that use a unique retaining clip placement.
The shorter than standard barrel isn't a problem, but you'll need to make some barrel spacers to locate the inner in the outer. You can buy them, but half an hour with a roll of painters masking tape is just as good and a lot cheaper. That length barrel will work well with 0.36g ammo, but if you're going to use heavier (and you should) then a 455mm would be better. If you want to know why, look up cylinder /barrel volume matching.

This is a good start and the only thing you'll need to buy is the hop up arm ($10). The rest is time and learning some skills. Use decent 0.36g ammo and you'll be hitting stuff at 200+ ft. Don't bother spending money on the barrel if you're not going to upgrade the hop up. These mods done right will get the best out of the standard hop up, but to get the accuracy from an upgrade barrel you need a better hop up.
