UTG L96 upgrade halp

Postby KijaJouteh » Wed Apr 16, 2014 1:03 pm

I'm insanely new to upgrades, I don't know much, so I was wondering if the upgrade kit for the UTG L96 would work with a 6.03 barrel? Also if you know a good 6.03 barrel compatible with the gun please link it.

I'm not 100% familiar with all the various spring sniper rifle upgrades out there, but I do know that you'll be basically looking for Maruzen APS2 parts for your UTG L96. Keep in mind, that 99% of AEG upgrades out there will not work for your UTG L96.

Regarding the diameter of the barrel, I generally see 6.01mm being the standard for upgraded long range spring sniper rifles.

Here's a barrel that I believe should work that is 6.03mm:

However, generally you don't want to skimp on the inner barrel for a spring sniper rifle, since accuracy is basically the whole point of using a sniper rifle.

So, should I go for a madbull 6.01 for long range?

That would probably be best, although I have heard that 6.01mm may have accuracy issues due to the lack of "air cushion" around the bb.

I would go for the 6.03, my friend. I haven't heard of the possible range reduction due to a lack of cushion, but I know that 6.01 tightbores are great at shattering bb's. Don't oil the barrel, make sure to clean it after any outdoor game in even mildly humid weather, and generally, take steps to ensure that no dust/debris makes it's way into the barrel. There is no room in that sucker for ANY smut.

So my best understanding is that the only thing I need to you need to upgrade is springs and barrels? Or don't you have to buy a better trigger box to support the spring?
