automag barrel adapters

Looking to add a new barrel to my RT classic and I was wondering what barrel adapter you guys would recommend...

I am considering a deadlywind barrel, so I would need an adapter...

thnx,

I have used both the noxx and docs adapter and although docs is heavier I would go with it.

Check out the Python kit.

1) Even if Doc has one in stock you'll likely wait months for it to arrive.

2) Noxx adapter is neat, but he seems to be really backed up right now.

3) If you get a Python kit, you not only get an adapter, but a sizing system that pretty much eliminates rollouts.

I have all three. I prefer the Python over any of them.

I have Doc's and it works great. I only waited a week for mine. That was a year ago though

So if I get the Python kit - I would just use the deadlywind without any inserts?

Is the deadlywind an insert kit barrel? I'm kind-of behind on all the whizbang new stuff.

Yep, the deadlywind takes freak inserts I believe. I love Python kits, so that's the route I'd go but not if you're really set on using the deadlywind. I don't think two insert kits together would yeild particularly good results.

The other plus for the Python kit is that it's aluminum so it'll be a lot lighter than Doc's which is stainless.

Yeah, if you're putting a kitted barrel on it, I'd vote for Docs. It feels better and it goes left right and center.

I've tried the doc's adapter too short of a period to give any decent opinion about it, but here goes: Takes spyder detents, and the threads were a bit on the large size... When i've asked doc about this, he stated that the cocker thread we so commonly use is not standardized. So the adapter was made with alot of play to accomodate most barrels. I have a micromag that was threaded to tight.. The only barrels that fit are the stock one, and my deadlywind. (yay!) But all the other barrels i have are pretty much useless for this gun.

Robertsr, you really might want to try a deadlywind... I've bought it for a Karta Emag project i never finished, but this barrel is one of my favorites.

It's a carbon fiber barrel though isn't it? I REALLY don't like the way they look.
