i cut the wings off my gun tonight and if anybody is thinking of doing it, dont lol.
i didnt mess it up or anything fun like that i just dont think its worth it. one side is just the tinyest deeper then the other, nothing drastic and nobody will notice. if your curious because your fav barrels dont fit, buy the sick body, looks twice as good and nothing will get messed up lol, ill probibly be doing the same, its just one of those things a bug you because there not 100%

It is tough find a barrel that will fit. I found out the hard way that certain J&J barells will fit and others wont!

i lucked out and all mine fit, i think its because there factory spyder though like the mr series 16 but i also have a j&j that fit with tons of room. you bought the edge kit or something didnt you?

if i knew it was so easy to file i wouldnt have cut so deep. the first pic is the stock barrel the other are my 16"http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g104/monte_ss/DSC00795.jpg
the bad side if you want to call it that, the pics actually look worse i think lolhttp://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g104/monte_ss/DSC00794.jpghttp://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g104/monte_ss/DSC00793.jpg

it doesnt leak and fits tight but idk, when work picks up again ill see if the local shop can get me a stock body or ill just order the sick body. cant use it anyways because theres to much snow, but it is now ripping at 220 psi, 180 psi didnt work and 200psi did but im just going to leave it at 220 untill i feel like cranking it, setting the trigger and haveing a face ripping monster lol

I don't think it looks too bad. If it works fine, I wouldn't worry about it.

so, as long as it works, whos honestly gonna notice, the only thing that it might do is take away from the selling price, ya though, im a perfectionistand like things to look good so it might have bugged me :p,

You could wrap some teflon tape on the threads. That would work just as good as the oring but give you the same look that you have now. Plus it would hold the barrel a little... so it doesnt come loose on ya'.

yea idk if i would cut the wings off mine. I know a guy that bought a barrel that diddnt fit so he just screwed it in as far aas it would go and it worked fine, granite it looks like crap but it works.
