I know Promys are great, but if the Edgis are quite a bit better, I would be willing to fork out the extra $10 bucks.  As far as cleaning, people seem to exaggerate how much you need to clean 6.01s.  Booligan from ASR says he cleans his DBCs before he goes out and after he is done.  He says that there really isn't any need to clean it more than that, but doesn't hurt.  

so in your experience, which do you think is better?  Do you think a Promy barrel paired with a Promy bucking would yield greater results over an Edgi with a bucking such as a Systema?  (I've read that pairing barrels with the same brand of bucking gives greater accuracy; wither this is true or not I'm not sure   :rolleyes:)

so now that my rant is done.......which do you think would be better?  ha ha thanks guys

Honestly, I say go with the Edgi / Systema combo. I am aware that Edgi makes a KILLER barrel for my UTG m324, and I have faith in those guys. Besides, the best way to find out is to try it... Go with the little guys!

The one problem is that you may have trouble ordering off that edgi website. I would prefer having them selling their stuff on another website with other airsoft stuff, perhaps ASGI?

actually, this wasn't for the KWA M4.............. I was going to get this for an SRC G36K Gen 3........

I know this is a KWA forum, but I just wanted to know what your experiences are with the barrels

you guys can lock this if this is breaking the rules.

I have tried both edgi 6.02ID 395mm and Prom 6.03ID 407.  Yes cleaning the barrels are exagerrated. I normally clean the barrels before I leave for the gamesite. (we play once a week so thats only once a week).

I have never tried the edgi 6.01 but am planning to get the 6.00ID next. From where I am Edgi is half the pice of a prom.(Edgi = 30 USD)

The Edgi 6.02 performs like the Prom 6.03 if not myabe a bit better but not that noticesable. But like I always say : products sometimes differ

KM TN barrels are also worth the look 6.04

I see Proms at par with Edgi when it comes to performance bt proms have better material.
