Ah well there ya go. Seems 1/8 is a good all around with 1/9 being a good barrel to run the 55 grain cheapo stuff. The 1/8 shoots it well too.

IMHO, you will probably like it just fine.

There are certainly better uppers, higher quality parts , but you will pay a premium for it.

Here are some more choices.

I have a few PSA uppers , for the price I have been very happy.
