3 Customer Reviews "This barrel is just wonderful. It improved my accuracy a ton. With my stock brass barrel, I had suck large groupings it was ridiculous, but with this barrel, I have really great accuracy overall.
Pros: Increased Accuracy
If you're looking to purchase this gun, I suggest using only BB'S that are 5.95mm in diameter or smaller. If you insist on using 5.98mm BB's, I suggest using a 6.03mm barrel. "They the best barrels around, no questions asked! They don't break and are very accurate. I use them in all my guns. Tried many.
Experience: 10+ years. 9 AEG and 5 GBB
Pro: Better consistency than stock barrels, good quality material and packaging. Unbelievable pricing.
Con: None "As you can see (from my ASR review), the grouping tightened up substantially with the Angel barrel vs. the stock bore barrel. At short range, most of the deviation is from top to bottom, with side to side being quite tight. Grouping size with the Angel TBB was about 2.9”, with the stock barrel being closer to 5”.
Overall, you can see that the performance was greatly increased across the board using the Angel 6.01mm tightbore barrel. I saw an increase in velocity, consistency, usable range, and precision. For the price, this thing gave me one of the best bumps in overall performance that I've seen.
Noticeable increase in range, precision, FPS, and consistency
Great price - $32-$53, depending on length
High quality stainless steel construction
6.01mm inner bore
Must use very high quality ammo with this barrel, however, you should be using good ammo anyways.
Tighter bore barrels require frequent cleaning to prevent jams. (From Evike.com: Matrix, EVIKE, KSC, Marui, WE, G&P, Excel BBs recommended.)
News from Angel Custom: VSR-10 / APS2 / Type96 / SVD / M24 / GBB TB Barrels coming soon.
Angel Custom has produced a few products recently, and if they're half as good as their inner barrel, they are going to be a force to be reckoned with. This thing is extremely well made, and gives you real, measurable performance increases across the board. It is easy to install, inexpensive, and gives you more useable performance for skirmish use. I'm very excited to see what else Angel has in store for the airsoft market!
Many thanks again to Evike, and of course, Airsoft Retreat! Write a Review

Angel Custom G2 SUS304 Stainless Steel 6.01mm Airsoft Tightbore Inner Barrel (230mm / AEG)
Angel Custom G2 6.01mm Inner Barrel Series are the pinnacle of quality and performance in the Airsoft Industry. Utilizing advanced machining technology and premium grade materials, these inner barrels truly carries the name "Best"!
Angel Custom G2 6.01mm Inner Barrels are crafted from high quality 100% pure SUS304 stainless steel. SUS304 is precisely determined to be the best material for the Airsoft tight bore barrel application. Despite it's higher cost and manufacturing complexity, SUS304 provides the precision, hardness and durability for an Airsoft AEG tight bore barrel to carry the name "Best". Not only is it naturally rust resistant, but it is hard enough to keep its shape for an extremely long period of time. True stainless steel barrel allows you to focus on your game instead of worrying about bent or worn inner barrels. Aluminum and brass barrels will encounter deviations from being perfectly straight through time, usage and transportation. The Angel Custom G2 barrels are polished to a mirror finish on the interior with precision crowned end. Each Angel Custom G2 barrel will be delivered to you perfectly in a free-floating high density Angel transportation storage tube.
Compatibility / To Determining the inner barrel length you need:
This barrel is compatible with all Marui compatible AEG. The key to choosing an optimized inner barrel is to prevent it from exposing out of your outer barrel (or flashhider and mock silencer extensions) while maximizing it's length for optimized performance. Please note that the stock barrel length in your gun may not always be optimized for mass production models.
To determine the length you need, measure from where the magazine feed the bb to the tip of your inner barrel, or where you want your inner barrel to end. Subtract ~5mm for hopup unit. Remember, it is perfectly okay to have an inner barrel shorter than your outer barrel, or have the exposed sections hidden in a longer flashhider or mock silencer.
Why Angel Custom? SUS304 stainless steel barrels are simply better than Alloy, Aluminum and brass barrels. Angel Custom Tight bore barrels are the most affordable true steel 6.01mm tight bore barrels. Angel Custom's manufacturing capability provides industry leading accuracy and precision. They are a fraction of the cost compare to PDI, only because of manufacture strength. Teflon wears off over time. Brass and Aluminum won't be able to provide long term precision like SUS304 stainless steel do. Why 6.01mm?
With the 5.99mm and 5.98mm bbs going extinct, and with present day match grade bbs being 5.88~5.95 for a better center of mass, 6.01mm became the new optimized bore for maximum range, grouping and accuracy.(BB Diameter Deviation Reference: Tokyo Marui / Excel (5.90
). KSC/Evike Japanese Spec. (5.88
). Matrix, WE, AIM Top, Madbull, Elite Force (5.90
6.01mm barrels also provides less air volume in the barrel, resulting less air needed from the cylinder for each projection, resulting a higher rate of fire.

Inner Barrel FAQ:
If you greatly increase the inner barrel of your AEG, you may want to make sure your gearbox Cylinder is adequate and the rate of fire may need to be lowered. (For example, if you install a 509mm inner barrel on your MP5, you may want to switch the cylinder to a full cylinder so the amount of air inside the cylinder is equivalent to your new barrel.
