If the barrel is advertised to fit 8.1/9.1 how can we tell weather or not it will rotate? Here's a description of the Lapco Str8 Shot for the 8.1/9.1.
Bore size of .690 or .686
Length: 15" w/o tip, 16" w tip
superior performance of LAPCO barrels have been repeatedly confirmed in a multitude of independent tests over the last 23 years.
Made from very high grade aluminum, custom formulated for LAPCO.
Each barrel is amazingly accurate.
Extremely gas efficient due to minimal friction because of the micro-honed mirror finish.
Each barrel is stiff arbor honed by a master craftsman.
Self – Cleaning: Shoot through the occasional ball break – no need to swab.
Performance not affected by heat or cold.
Anodized using a proprietary process that produces an extra hard and durable finish.
Made 100% in-house in the USA.
Every barrel carries The Legendary LAPCO Lifetime Warranty: This is the best warranty you will never have to use.
Every barrel is laser engraved with the exact bore size and the LAPCO scorpion.
All T8.1 / T9.1 Str8Shot barrels can shoot both regular paintballs and First Strike paint.
7/8 – 20 threaded muzzle.
An M4 / M16 Birdcage muzzle break comes standard with each barrel.
All Str8Shot™ muzzle breaks are interchangeable with BigShot Assault™ barrels.
Each barrel is bead blasted for a perfect matte finish.
Outer diameter of the barrel is 7/8 inch – fits most marker shrouds and hand guards.
All T8.1 / T9.1 Str8Shot™ barrels are able to be used in both Tiberius T8.1 and T9.1 markers.
.686 bore size is ideal if you wish to use both regular paint and First Strike paint in the same playing session. The .686 bore is just the right size to slow down the First Strike round a little bit so that the chronograph reading is closer to that of regular paintball. This allows you to shoot paintballs at a higher velocity without the danger of shooting hot when switching to First Strike.
.690 bore size is best if you wish to use only one type of paint in a playing session. The .690 bore provides the highest gas efficiency while shooting First Strike rounds.
No where does it say that the barrel can rotate or not. How do we tell?
