I remember reading years ago some experiences of people with the 0.25 cal custom Alecto barrels. I can not find those threads any more. So I figured I'd start a new thread. Anyone feel like sharing their experiences with a 0.25 cal barrel on your Alecto? what length of barrel works best? How was the accuracy? etc. Please share your experiences.

I had a .25 barrel that was about 3 inches longer than stock but even with valve maxed out, it was just too slow - like 325 fps. So unless you are into lobbing your pellets to the target, not worth it. I changed mine back to .177 and sold the barrel.

Thanks for the reply. I have been getting quite a bit of negative feedback about the idea of a 0.25 cal barrel on the Alecto (some through PM). I think I'll abandon the idea and stick with a .22 Caliber. Thanks for the feedback.
