Thanks for a fast reply, So, is the 6.03 a better option then the 6.01? Also, do need the 363mm? maybe a new bucking?
Sorry I am new to air soft and again thanks for your time.

Not necessarily.
6.01's cost considerably more than 6.03's, for a small difference in performance, but if you're just trying to squeeze every last ounce of accuracy out of your gun then 6.01's the way to go.

Not even that really. Some 6.01s (ASGI/Masamune) are much worse than most 6.03s.

As for what length, just a normal M4 length barrel though.

Well yeah, you wouldn't want to get a POS one, if you're getting a 6.01 then you've got to get one of the best, DBC or EDGI, PDI's not worth it IMO

what exactly do you mean? like as in at what length does it stop affecting how much your accuracy is improved? or are you talking about upgrading the cylinder?
please elaborate :)
Pro tip - Tokyo Marui gas blowback pistols DO NOT need metal slides to run propane. Trust me I own one.
Follow up - I don't suggest metal propane adapters. The one I had broke my mags in < 3 weeks. Plastic adapters have many more pros than metal ones. Don't believe me? HolyHandGrenade has the most experience on the forum (that I've heard of) with any adapters.

Has anyone seen those 6.00mm barrels? Those look crazy and expensive. You can find one by edGI on Evike. What would the point be of having one of those over a 6.01mm? Sounds kInd of like waste unless you really really really need it lol.

I'll give you $20 if you can tell the difference in accuracy between a 6.01 and a 6.00.

6.01 and 6.00 show almost no gain in accuracy compared to a 6.03 but they do increase FPS. 6.01 and 6.00 barrels also jam a lot more. Those reasons explain why I recommend 6.03 over 6.01, or tighter, barrels.
