How to Change an Airsoft Barrel



Changing the barrel on an Airsoft rifle to make it longer or tighter will improve accuracy. Poor quality BBs will jam in a tight barrel, however. Most automatic electric guns (AEG) come with a default stock of 6.08 mm diameter. Barrels come as tight as 6.01 mm to 6.05 mm. Some manufacturers make a 6.04 mm barrel with a special coating, which increases the feet per second (FPS) by up to 10 times, or more.Difficulty:ModerateInstructions Things You'll Need
