Default Barrel Mod

Hi everybody. I was wondering, ive tried to do the barrel mod and so ive filed down to where the stock barrel stops screwing in. however, when i put on a progressive to test the mod, im still getting heaps of barrel breaks and the paint is still quite fresh. Should i try goin a bit further? som people i have seen have also inlined the barrel input bit with the volumiser bit, is that too far? thanks for the help, much apreciated

So you're getting barrel chops? Maybe you need a bigger bore.

I'm kinda lost on why you filed your marker... ???

where exactly does the break occur? in the marker, right behind the barrel? a couple inches up into the barrel?

Also, where did you see pics of this barrel mod?

The only one I've heard of is taking the front most peice off the VS3 that "hangs" out over the back of the barrel. For that mod you just cut that top peice so that its the same as a VS2. ...no really any filing involved.

[to Opteron] I have a Vs3
[to Care-Bear] it occurs right behind the barrel so i assume that i havnt filed far enuff and lol, yeh i cut it a bit first but then filed the rest coz i guess i thought i had cut enuff and i dont have a dremil. Also, i wanted it to be a smooth finish. the pic i saw was on another thread http://www.spyder.tv/forums/showthread.php?t=7985
Ahwel, i'll just file a bit mor and see, fingers crossed :S

Default Re: Barrel Mod

Is there a machine shop anywhere near you??? I would machine a barrel to fit my marker before I started chopping my marker to fit a barrel. Anyway, too late for that; if your barrel is not all the way seated to the breach then you will have a small gap/transition that will very likely cause breaks. Whoever gave you the idea of filing down your marker gave you the worst idea I have ever heard of, Sorry, just can't seem to get over that. What you'll need to do is continue what you have started until your barrel is completely seated to your marker. PLEASE!!! don't take this as flaming, that is not it at all, you tried something that seemed to make sense, but at what cost? I hope your able to make this work because if not your out a marker body. G'luck and I hope for the best with this one.

did you file or cut anywhere aside from the top part of the marker?

also, how does the back of your barrel look? is it possible that there's a rough spot on it? have you tried any other barrel or the stock barrel?

lol, nah. im not offended in ny way, jus glad peeps are tryin to help so thanks I live in a secluded area so no machine shops are about bt i guess i'll go a tiny bit further as as u've sed, to late now. Not all is lost tho as the stock barrel still works. The progressive looks fine to me and it works fine on my mates markers so im pretty sure its just the overhang shroud bit that's not been don rite. and no, i havnt cut any other top part of the marker. lol, ahwel, i'll update soon and let u kno wheter i got it workin or not....jus keepin ALMOST all parts of my anatomy crossed:P hehe tnx for the feedback btw. much apreciated as always
