Well I keep seeing rifles with cut short barrels or bull barrels. I do love the way some of em look and I figure mobility will be better but wont the range and accuracy decrease? Would it be enough to worry about? I have an M28 and this barrel length is pretty long, was considering shortening the barrel a few inches.
Longer barrels tend to improve accuracy in general, but it depends what kind of range and groups you are looking for. You can use a sbr if it makes the gun easier for you to handle. You may not necessarily notice the difference in accuracy or if you do, it may be worth it to have a gun you can handle better. It's really almost a personal preference. I would say shorten the barrel if it makes the gun more comfortable, you'll still be plenty good. The biggest factor in accuracy is consistency, swapping parts with a better piston or piston head etc that will give you a better or more consistent seal and a stronger more consistent spring and trigger will do more for your accuracy than a few inches more of barrel length.
Right on. So far its all stock since I just got it a few days ago. Its just an Echo1 m28. I did swap out the spring to save the sears till I get something together. It does seem to shoot pretty nice though. I have a new nub for the hopup I may try soon too. Its a madbull fishbone. Did crap for my AK so maybe it'll do something for this.
