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 ;)

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 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.
