"A sturdy, nice-looking nice-feeling barrel. I bought mine to make a dmr barrel for my Marui AUG High Cycle. It did not quite fit in the forward receiver, and I had to grind down the outer diameter of the still-black part of the barrel right behind the foregrip assembly, before the barrel turns green. But it did fit the G&P metal hopup unit, and has worked like a charm since!
"First off, I got this barrel for my aug because I originally had an a3, but I bought all the parts from here to make an a2, and an a1 if I wanted to. After getting the scope, I knew the barrel that I had came with no texture or folding grip to finish the look($15 flash hider also a bonus). So I gathered my earth dollars, and bought this here barrel.
When getting the barrel, it looked great. It fit in my gun like a charm, the flash hider had an easy to remove set screw, and it comes 14mm negative for the suppressor I have. The grip works, it just has tiny wobble. Not awful in any circumstance, but definitely noticeable.
Here's my issue, and why I rated it 4 stars.
The hop-up works, the adjustment wheel fixes the little knob up and down, but the hole that fed the bbs into the hop-up from the magazine was too small. I tried firing it, nothing came out, and I pulled the magazine out to have 20 bbs fly out because they had nowhere to go. I tested my old barrel, it worked fine. It took me a few hours to find the problem, dropping bbs into each hop-up to find any difference, and sure enough, the bb went halfway into the hole, and stopped. It could be shoved, but that was impractical. I had to bore the hole larger, careful not to damage the hop-up mechanism itself, until a bb can actually fit through it.
So, all in all, this is basically rated 4.5 stars, because the hop-up issue wasn't too hard to fix, and the grip is slightly wobbly. Other than that, it's pretty kool.
"I bought my lady an AUG A2 from ASG on amazon, and it performs really good! However, we noticed that the outer barrel was curved, and it was all glued together! (wtf?). I saw this, decided to give it a go, and it fits perfectly! It was a bit hard to install (needs some elbow grease), but it works!! =]
- Metal outer barrel.
- Metal flash hider.
- Looks more realistic.
