I did my homework man, think about what I do for a living for a second..

The responses to scientific question on their site are weak, often "referred to the engineer" and then not responded to at all.

For every 500 they have saying it's great I can give you 5000 that say a 590 mm 6.01 works great as well including me . I had on for years that delivered the results they claim.

Of course I am also betting that BB's don't actually touch the inside of the barrel at all during trip down the barrel (we have a bet going at Bastard Labs). We will be testing this this fall.

But even if it turns out it does, I see no reason why it would bounce in a small barrel and not in a large barrel. If the BB has a natural tendency to smack off the sides of the barrel in transit, why will that stop just because it's given more room?

Makes zero sense, especially from a fluid dynamics perspective.

A lot of positive feedback.

60-70 meters accuracy at only 1 joules is very good. some are prentending 300-350 ft accuracy on snipers at 500 fps with this barrel.

I might give it a try lately.

Systema came up in 2012 on their revolution PTW with a new taper inner barrel design ranging from 6.03 to 6.05 bore diameter. They are saying that a larger bore at the exit of the barrel increase the accuracy and range by stabilizing the BB and preventing it to touch the inside of the barrel for a more consitent and effective backspin. They first try 6.1mm and after further testing they came up with this solution.

In every other application on earth (rifles, blow guns) longer gives more time under pressure and more stability. I have seen nothing convincing other than the PR on their website to convince me otherwise.
