I'm going to try a Prometheus 6.01 barrel for my KM4A1-TAC. I'm told that this barrel will improve accuracy and increase FPS 10-20%. Makes me wonder what the cost difference is for KWA at point of manufacture to install their 6.03 instead of the 6.01. Perhaps this is how they generate business for the Pro Shop.
I am relying on 2nd hand info that the barrel I have is 6.03 because everything I rec'd in the box is Chinese. If someone here could tell me how to find actual dimensions and perhaps which version I have... I would appreciate it.
I would have preferred to buy stuff from KWA but everything I want is out of stock. Fortunately my gun has worked flawlessly and I'm only upgrading during a long spell between milsims.
If I understand correctly the EDGI barrels have been made to spec to fit the SR10 correctly. This includes increasing the length of a small groove on one end of the barrel that is longer than what it would typically be. Without that groove being the proper length you would have to modify your gun for an aftermarket barrel to fit. EDGI has already cut the groove to the proper length so their barrel should fit perfectly without any modification to your weapon.
Thanks for the info on when the barrels should arrive. I'll keep checking.
