Default ID This Barrel Please - Tear Drop?

Hey gang,

I bought this barrel some time ago last summer off of ebay. It was advertised as a 2001 Tear Drop barrel and that was the reason why it didn't have the name down near the threading as is on a new version Tear Drop.

I was wondering if anyone could verify it.





Thanks.

Looks like a teardrop to me. But without the jewel to be sure, it could be an off brand of some kind...

Yeah, looks like a teardrop, just wanted to make sure because if I ever go to get rid of it, I don't want to be accused of trying to rip someone off. The only reason I've ever been suspect of it is because there isn't that thick part near the threads where they usually slap the Tear Drop logo.

Fires fine...so, I guess I shouldn't worry, but hey, thought I'd ask anyway!

yea its a tear drop but it has been re-threaded. thats why the threads are chrome and not anno'ed black. Something might have been wrong with it or the threads might just have been stripped.

Hey, that hadn't even dawned on me. Thanks for the info.

You think it could cause any problems having been rethreaded?
