anybody know if this'll fit past the shroud?

nope didnt fit mine,

but after a little milling to the barrel back it'll fit

i think if possible i'm just going to make my own shroud out of the stock x7 front

Yea they did not fit mine. I have not worked on a solution appart from removing the shroud.

How did you mill the back of the barrel exactly? Dimond file? Dremel tool? Fancy 40,000 dollar laser guided computer lathe?

I'm pondering milling the shroud insted.

Anyway details would be appreciated!

the sides of the shroud are too thin to mill out, you'd just have to chop off the top

its way esier to mill the barrel down and it doesnt change the look of the marker.

ok well I've tried filing down my Edge kit, its a REAL pain. you have to file each of the adapters at the back (by the threads) as well as about 1 inch down. I used a file and a dremel tool and after 2 hours work still dont have it fitting all the way on. ick!

I use files to turn down barrels to sometimes and it only took like 15 min are you useing a nail file or what? LOL
I put mine in a vise to so it holds it steady and you can put more dow pressure eache time you file some off.

I'm using a heavy duty metal file, and a finer metal file to smooth it out a bit!

Makeing bad headway, gave up for the night after ripping up my hands! ick! Maybe my J&J is made of titanium or something.

went at it again today, 3 hours work finaly got it to fit.

Started on another one slightly better progress now that I got them securely locked down but still way slow :-\
