    Default Barrel length

    Morning guys
    Just want a little feedback on what effect barrel length of a springer has in terms of muzzle velocity, accuracy etc. I understand that there is a specific turn ratio in the barrel, yet ive read so many times that barrels are being shortened. Is there a sweet spot with regard to the length. Ok so this is specifically for springers......

    Effective length in a springer 300 mm
    the rest is used as a cocking aide and longer sight picture for open sights
    and I have tested it !
    one of the best springers in the world AA Pro sport is that length

    Mze did some practical experiments on this, AFAICR.

    Perhaps the Janitor knows where they are?

    Optimum barrel length is equal to whatever distance keeps the rabid beast far enough from your ankles to preclude injury while you fumble with a pellet.

    My Hw50s has a 10" barrel and is still super accurate.
