Hey guys, we just got in the KM Head 6.02mm barrels for 509mm (SR12/KM16BR). These are great barrels and made for us specifically by KM Head and do not need any modification for correct installation.
They are up on the Pro Shop at http://store.kwausa....arrel509mm.aspx and available for purchase.

We may order them once we run out of stock on the EDgI barrels. The request for that length has been a bit slower so we still have about 10 pieces in stock on the EDgI.

I was considering getting this barrel but I don't know how well they perform against other high end barrels like prometheus pdi and edgi. Has anyone had a chance to do a comparison?
Also where does a 6.02 barrel stand in terms of range and accuracy verses a 6.03 and 6.01?

I have never experienced a jam in any of my 6.01 barrels.  As long as you clean it after every game day you shouldn't have any problems unless you are the kind of guy that likes to stick his barrels in dirt. LOL

ive always wondered about the jam thing. ud have to have a pretty dirty barrel to cause a jam, wouldnt you? and then would that jam mess with the smooth inner barrel's accuracyfrom then on?

The techs in my area say that 6.03s offer more range and accuracy than 6.01s but the .01s offer better groupings and fps. Is this true? And if so where do the 02s stand?

I personally think the tighter the better.  But, ammo has a great affect on results given the fact that different manufacturers make different diameter BB's.  In the end the only tests I've seen, albeit not scientific, show the 6.01 edging out 6.03's.  But that is not necessarily comparisons of the same brand so one could argue their validity. I have yet to see something definitive that addresses the question you asked.

heh heh

before i learned about KWA BB's...  i used to get the "biggest" diameter ones i could get....  got some 5.98's & they were +/- .02  well it dont take long to see how that could be a problem in a 6.01 or .03 barrel...  they do have to be able to "fly" out of the barrel.  :-)  and it only took 1 to be the + .02's to have a jam and then when running the lipo it was a total cluster F*k in a matter of a second.

and no ive never had a dirty barrel in a gun until that jam up.

got no real clue as to why/what/how that happened in there but it was a mess and had pieces back in the nozzle, piston and so on.

but im excited to try one of these .02 barrels in the 425 for my m4a1.   :-)
