had a filling.....i hope i doesnt have those grove in the barrel the ak one does. i can always buy one of the after market shrouds that come with weivers and throw a bipod red light and flash light :) MORE MORE MORE MORE untell the MR3 weights 50lbs YEAH!

I have the BT M16 with out the apex and it fits the MR-2 so I think that it is the same only with out the tip. Hope that helps.

have you removed the shroud? does it just screw on or are there indents n the barrel?

Yes I have removed the shroud, it is currently on my Empire Twister barrel. It is a base plate witch slides over 1 inch barrel and has a set screw. Then the two sides of the barrel shroud witch lock into the base plate. Then the top cap. Then the front sight witch is held with an other set screw. Pretty sure the front sight is 7/8 as I had to mill the tip of the Twister to get it to fit. Hope that helps

Wrong info. The barrel is extended enough out the back(look in the pic of the barrel) for the shroud so you do not need to remove it. All you'll really need to do is reorientate the outer hardware on the barrel -

What it does not fit is the MR1. Um, let me rephrase that, it will fit, but there will be a gap of barrel before the hardware on the MR1-

sorry, wrong choice of words. I meant the m16 shroud on the barrel, not the shroud on the MR3, but either way it should fit

i get it tues cant fing WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! im thinking about getting some material for it so i can wrap around the apex portion to extend it towards the marks so it looks like a silencer!

anyone know how long the bt-16's barrel is ?
just curious about the actual metal barrel

slim and shady
08-08-2008, 01:30 PM
I think one size is 12 and the other is 14. The 14 one is for the MR2 and 3 because of the shroud.

hows the accuracy of that barrel compared to a J&J ceramics 16" with an apex.?
also. Can i put the shroud on my J&J?

slim and shady
08-08-2008, 06:07 PM
if you had the tip on the JJ it would be alot more accurate compaired to the stock apex barrel. And im about 90% sure that the shroud would fit the JJ

according to bt it wont fit the mr3 :(, i sent them an email here it is::
ME:I just ordered the BT 16 Spyder Apex Barrel Kit from an online sight and was wondering a few things. I've heard that if used on a spyder MR2 or3 that it will fit with the m16 shroud on and also wont fit with out the m16 shroud being removed. Can you tell me one way or other please? Also if i have to remove the shroud is it just simply removing the screws or is it like the ak barrel where the barrel has mechiend groves in it?
BT:ye, you have to remove the shroud. there is only two set screws.
yeah they spelled yes with YE

08-09-2008, 05:09 AM
Must be the one thats only 12 long then?
for that price you still cant go wront take the tip off and the BT shroud and put them on a longer better barrel problem solved.

yup, but im pretty sure it will fit. Its the 14" so, besides it wont hurt my feelings if i have to remove the shroud, i was thinking of getting a custom shroud that fits better (looks wise, squareish)with my shroud. The trick is finding a mechinist. I have NO clue where to start

ok, i think im going to buy this mostly just because of how good of a deal it is, but i dont know if i should get the ak-47 or m16 with my setup and because they are the same price. what do you guys think?

hoodtrix
08-09-2008, 09:32 AM
i know the ak47 requires moding to fit the m16 is up in dabate lol but stripping the m16 shroud you'll still have a normal looking barrel but i hear the ak barrel has mech groves in it

mr1 sniper
08-09-2008, 12:37 PM
well i have the mr1 and a 14" barrel so i would i still need to mod either of them?

EDIT: i just looked on actionvillage and they are having the same sale

ok so i got it......it doesnt fit......have to remove the m16 shroud.....heres the problem....the shroud does have srews. its more of a lil cylinder pieces thats hold the shroud ends on. what would remove that? also i did remove the apex itself and the way its designed it wont fit any other barrel. so anyone know of anything to help? Is there a barrel extinder/adaptor?

Just use electical tape and put the Apex tip on pretty much any barrel that is 7/8 at the end. You can get an adaptor if you want it is like $15 from Sundragon I think.

it fits fine on my mr-2
i had to adjust the position of the shroud a bit as it was too far back but moved it forward a bit and it fits perfect.

this barrel looks awesome!
