How does the stock KWA m4 barrel compare to the aftermarket G&Gs and Madbulls?
Also, I've been hearing that Madbulls don't last very long as they begin to "peel off" in a similiar way that paint does.  Is this true, and that they should be avoided?

Oh and how does it compare to JBU barrels?

Of the three aftermarkets, which one is best overall?

I upgraded to Prometheus TB over stock barrel in my M16. Grouping went from 6" to 4" at 30 yards and picked up 30 fps. Money well spent IMHO.

Normally I don't make comment on other products but I'll make an exception on the MadBull barrel.  

Madbull barrel is Teflon coated, and those so call peeling off is usually from residue build up from using crappy bbs.   Meaning it's has nothing to do with the barrel itself.

In my opinion PDI makes the BEST tightbore barrels, when you look down the barrel it is REALLY SMOOTH, there is almost no ripples at all. Its not just about bore size but the smoothness of the barrel. The runner ups I would pick are Prometheus and possible KM, there not as smooth as the PDI's but its not as horrible as the Madbull's, DBC's, and even the Systema's. I was sad to see so much ripples in the Systema barrels because they have a reputation for making one of the most best aftermarket products.

I believe Madbull V2 is not coated. They seem to be great.

This is another site that may help you guys from buying barrels.

I myself use CA 6.04 tightbore and it's pretty good. I mainly bought it because it was stainless steel and cheap. Less chance of scratching/warping.

I e-mail Simon at Mad Bull and this is his reply.

"Hi Allen,
It is impossible to coat Teflon to the "inner barrel surface."
So, whoever claim their barrel is Teflon, they are making the false advertisement.
We are using chemical liquid to coat our barrel which will make the surface become hard.
Thakns.

Hi Allen,
It is not coating. So, the chemical can go into the inner barrel.
Yes, it is because of bad BBs.
Simon

But I stand correct that the white residue is from bad BB's.
