So I have seen all the info on the twist barrels, and some of it is pretty convincing. I am planning on building a dmr/long range aeg and am debating the following two options -
high fps setup - (m135 or 130 spring) and a prometheus tightbore, semi auto only, ~450 fps
Tk set up - no spring upgrades, full/semi auto, ~350-370 (w/ .2), shooting a .28 to keep the fps below 330, since the tk is best below that
now the obvious advantage of the tk barrel set up is that wear on the gears will be very low since I would be most likely using a v7 g&p gear box and running it with a low power spring. My question is does the twist barrel offer the range and accuracy advantage needed to be on par with a high fps set up like the first one I listed?
btw, from what I can gather, v7s are some of the strongest gear boxes when compared with a v2, which, besides me already having a bunch of m14 mags, is the reason im going with the v7. Is this a correct statement, or is there no real strength advantage to the v7 gb?
