First of all, I want to thank you all for what you guys do, both users and mods! =D

This time, I need some of your advice...
Because I don't have anything close to your level of experience in internal parts and that stuff, I'm asking you guys:

I really want my m16 to have a little bit more precision. Therefore I want to get myself a precision barrel, but I need some help choosing which type... At "www.evike.com" there is some barrels with teflon coating. Wouldn't they be a good solution? Since teflon i svery slippery and stuff?
I'm not going to spend an awful lot of money on the barrel though.
Also. Would it be wise to get a new hop-up rubber or something too?

The gun is shooting somewhere between 400 and 450 fps, and the barrel length is 510mm , if that has some kind of impact on which barrel i should choose...

Sorry if it is too many grammarmistakes or anything. I'm in a hurry right now XD

Happy snipin'!

If your heart is set on ordering from Evike and you don't have a ton of money to spend I would recommend a Systema tightbore. It's not as tight as other barrels but they are well made and you will notice an increase in accuracy. They have M16-length barrel's for $45:

If you want to spend a little more then Prometheus and KM are the way to go. Here's the Prometheus 509mm:

To answer your question about Teflon coating: yes. The Teflon makes for a very smooth surface. I have a KM Teflon-coated barrel in my M24 and it performs very well.

If you really want a cheap and very chearful barrel I can recommend the Madbull Version 2 Python in 509mm. Its 6.03mm bore made of aluminium alloy and is also teflon coated. Ive had one in my EBR now for about 3 years and is really good for what I paid for it ;)

Re new hop rubber if your existing one is not that old then dont bother unless its split, usually just in front or behind the internal nub and can normally only be seen by rolling it back and fore between your fingers. If its old then yes it would make sense to
and while your at it either do the hop mod I did in the VSR or pop in a H nub ;)

Bad experience with both? How?

I don't want to buy crap =(

edit:

I also found out: My stock barrel is 480 mm??? is this normal?
But i have another 10 mm left before the flash hider/silencer.

Just wondering about the 480mm stock barrel ???

The Madbull version 1 of the barrel did have flaws and was slated everywhere which is why they came up with the version 2 which is much better ;) It might not be Teflon but it is definatly coated in something slick, as the barrel is made from aluminium which is probably the unslickest barrel making metal around :)

What manufacturer is your M16 made by, as every M16 I've worked on has had a 509mm in it. Just a thought, where are you measuring your barrel from ie the end to what point on the hop chamber, or is the barrel out and you are measuring from end to end :-/

If thats the barrel fitted you had better stick to the same length, just to be safe ;) In regards the lost length over a 509 I wouldnt worry to much as 30mm is not going to see you have massive gains in accuracy anyway, and it would of only gained you about 10 fps in power at the most.

I think that a 509 will fit. I really don't care too much about the barrel sticking out into the flash hider a couple of mm... but do you really think i shall buy the madbull barrel?

I had mine when the EBR was still a stock M14 long, and that was about 3 years ago. The coating on the barrel is still good with no obvious signs of ware, and I think are good for the money they ask for. If your in any dought do a little more saving and buy a Systema or Promy Brass one, as I have no dought that they are the shizzle, as that is what I have in my bolties, but as my EBR is only for going out and blatting some numpties, a cheap tight bore is good enough for me as it doesn't see that much action. If your M16 is your sole weapon then I would suggest getting the best barrel you can afford.

Well... then I'll save up some more money and buy the barrel later some time.

I have to buy myself some stuff for a new 48 hour OP, Operation takedown-.- My team, TRF is being PMC's, going for some drugdealers and protecting some VIP fellah' :) Most of the mission is secretly planned by the leaders so I dont know much about it.
