Good Morning,

In regards to adding a tight bore barrel to the LM4 is an AEG Barrel compatible? If not are tbb made for the  KSC M4 compatible. Any resources that could be passed to help would be appreciated.

Very Respectfully
Blankman

Welcome to the forums Blankman! While I have not tried it personally, from what I understand an AEG barrel/TBB is not compatible with a GBBR. (LM4)

Guarder makes some TBBs for the KSC M4A1 GBB that are compatible I believe. You can find them on ehobbyasia.com.

Thanks for the reply. Can anyone take a picture of the end of the stock barrel for comparison.

It doesn't really matter what the end of the inner barrel looks like. Usually the picture of the end of the barrel is the same image as all the other ones the company sells. So rest assured, if it is made from same metal, the barrels will look the same.

KWA LM4 inner barrels should not be AEG compatible.

However, there is probably a good chance that the tbb's made for the KSC M4 GBBR, will be compatible with the KWA LM4.

No the ratech we ob will NOT work with the LM4. And yes the guarder barrel does work..but only with the mods I did to my hop up unit..but if you just get the guarder barrel hoping to just swap it out with no modification you will get disappointed.
