from what I've read, a prommy barrel will work fine with the standard hop up bucking and chamber.

I know the firefly is tight also

Pretty much all buckings are tight except the stock one.  If you haven't purchased a barrel yet, a DBC works with a Systema.  

The stock bucking is supposed to be pretty good.  (it gets like 200 feet of range)

hope this helps

Sometimes, like any factory products,  AEG parts differ in size/texture. So your best bet is to take your barrel and hop chamber to an airsoft parts shop and try if it fits there.

I have the Prommy TB and the Systema that I got didn't fit.  I ended up using the stock bucking.  It was still a tight fit.  I plan to try out a bunch of different buckings...maybe even some from the same manufacturer, since they seem to differ even between the same model/manufacturer.

I would try the guarder clear 50% bucking its pretty stretchy and it works really well. I only use prometheus tight bores in my guns and the guarder 50% bucking fits nicely.

I got a Guarder Improved bucking but it didn't fit.  I guess that is different than the 50%.  I'll try the 50%.

Since we're on the topic, I've also tried a Prometheus soft bucking that didn't fit, but I guess I should have read Allizard's post a little more carefully since he typed that out like three times...Duh.
