those are my own findings mind you so its relative to what you have learn't but ive been modifying springer/gas rams for over twenty years and have yet to find any evidence the carbine barrel offers any real advantage?
I should have said that bowket said a cocking aid should be used with this short a barrel . or i imagine a big silencer to aid cocking and stop or reduce flip . ??? HOLLY
GARY . i think springers are the equivalent to a hair shirt or birching for pleasuer . .
