When you buy a aftermarket barrel its because its smoother than a stock barrel.

 

Less chances of imperfections, but when you lap the barrel you take the imperfections out.

Unfortunately a bit like the m870 in that the majority of parts are tide up in the gearbox. 35000 yen for the gearbox which is the best part of 206 quid factory price before any markups. Meaning there would have to be a lot of demand to warrant ordering 10 of those bad boys..

 

So don't break it haha

Which in turn does what to performance?

 

From my experience, improved accuracy. I polished the inside of the barrel on my old G&G Scar, after that it was much more accurate. Pegged a guys middle finger as he stuck it over a barricade to tell me to give up shooting at him. :P

 

It's pretty easy to do, but as said it's a bit of a bum time wise. I wasn't aware you could buy kits for it. I used T cut for the initial polishing and some Autoglym car wax stuff (I can't even remember what the hell it was!) for finishing it.

If you have a way to put the barrel on a lathe, that would be the way to go, so you hone the inner barrel evenly.

Just got mine this week and got a chance to use it today, only downside is it has typical marui plastic, but overall quality of engineering and the metalwork is great. What are people using for mag pouches on these? Redwolf has shown them in tacos but they look an agonisingly tight fit!

Thanks for sharing! For some reason, I was expecting this bad boy to have a lot more parts. Not saying that it doesn't have plenty already...

I do it the poor mans way, cleaning rod in a dremel!

That's polishing, not lapping, AFAIK. As per HS5's video, lapping is supposed to be done along the length of the barrel, so that you get a longitudinal finish, rather than around the circumference of the barrel.
