Hi all!

Just wondering if anyone has the 14 inch barrel tip for this gun....Is it worth it? Does it make the marker any more accurate vs the stock :confused: ?? Or is it more of a "Show piece"?? :rolleyes:

The barrel tip is for show and to give the marker a bling factor. I'd go with a barrel kit if you want your gun to be accurate.

The 07 Freak back and SS Freak back do not fit the stock VS3 body. king-man, do you have the Freak Jr. back? I'll add it to my list of compatible barrels.

Not that I don't beleive ya but can I see a pic of it on the stock body. The 07 is the newest one out.

EDIT- Got a pm from ya but the message part was empty. The title had VS3 barrel.

Would you happen to have a caliper to measure the outside of your back? I ordered mine early last year, I'm wondering if SP changed the backs a little bit in that time. I'm guessing they had to, can anyone else shed some light on this?

I'm gonna email SP and see if they can shed some light on this. I tried my buddies 07 back and it doesn't fit either. They obviously have changed the way their produced.

Cool thanks guys! lol Well I guess I will be looking for a freak kit or something.....I did end up getting the tip.......It was included with the body kit I won on Ebay for $5.00....I haven't used it yet but I prob will on Wednesday....I will prob stick with that for a bit......It should help out a little with accuracy anyway...

are you sure they are 07's not 06's they look the same but the 07's are thinner, you can tell by looking at the end, if its all smooth its 06, if it has a lip at the end its an 07

They didn't redesign them in 06. The previous backs didn't have 4 slots just 2 smaller slots. Then in 07 they put the 4 slots cut into the back. Good news though they started shaving the back edge of the backs around the middle of 07, in the email they didn't state why. I'm not sure if any other guns we're having a problem with them fitting. So all the ones manufactured after then will fit.

AV doesn't normally have old stock sitting around. I'm sure most of the old design people already have in their hands. I'd bet AV would swap the old for the new if you'd ask though. I'm not to worried about it, my shroud was history an hour after I bought my VS3.
