MP7 Inner Barrel

A+ and Falcon also make 6.01 and 6.03 inner barrels (respectively) that are just slightly longer than the stock barrel. I gave up on the 370mm 6.01 A+ and bought the 190mm version from Airsoft Extreme. To put these in perspective the stock barrel is 162mm (or 168mm I don't remember exactly, the specs aren't up any more with the MP7 discontinuation issue) Here are a bunch of links to all those shorter barrels:
Sadly, at least as far as I know, Edgi no longer custom makes barrels to order. Also beware that when you get into the 300+ mm range the FPS starts to jump up to 500+. I wish Edgi still did their customs, I would have ordered something like a 250mm 6.01.

Do I have to use MP7 specific barrels or can I use others like sold on ASGI, Evike, etc.?

They can cut the MP7 Falcon 6.03mm F92 barrel to your desired length. $50 and it includes a "blue" hop-up rubber. Not sure if the Falcon "blue" hop up rubber is any good, but it comes with the barrel. This is my first MP7 so I'm a little slow on the uptake.

Also, if you do get your hands on an A+ studios 370mm barrel, I don't know if you can get the FPS below 400, even with the bolt AND valve. Physics may just not allow it lol. Based on the performance of the falcon barrel, it would make sense that the A+ will go over 600, possibly.

So, the Edgi 6.03 fits into that window. The A+ on the other hand, closes the bore too tight relative to the STOCK barrel length. However, with the small bit of extra length, I think this counters that FPS drop, hence leaving the FPS the same, but giving you greater accuracy of course. Considering the massive increase the falcon 363mm barrel gives, this makes sense. Even just 30mm in length can apparently make a difference.
So I guess in conclusion the 190mm barrel is a way to increase accuracy without an increase in FPS on the MP7. I really want that 370mm barrel now... I'll deal with the high fps somehow. Maybe a different valve and low power bolt combo. But I want the accuracy of a barrel that is around M4 length.
Does this make sense to you guys?

Longer length=more FPS
I got it!
