Those have the SL-68 barrel mounting system?

I can... Two options.

1) I can bore out the body and install an insert. The insert can be long enough to cover the breach opening in the side, too. Additional charges would apply at a custom rate.

2) Weld the pinch bolt slot and rethread the body. At my standard rate, plus a little for the welding.

Yes the "slip-fit " system. Option two seems the way to go. Will be in contact very soon. Thanks!

What with the Tippmann Crossover coming out, do you think you could change the marker's threading to Autococker? ie. have a Crossover take 'cocker threaded barrels?

Easy to do. Heck Lapco has had an adapter out for awhile. I can vouch that they work well. also if Alpha makes one it'll be quality.

I have a Spyder TS. Can the body be bored to accept Cocker barrels? And if so, how much?

Right, but I would want to use a Freak kit without an adapter if at all possible.

Some people have had "success" with the adapters. But from an engineering standpoint, they're solid crap.

I just can't see it as a good idea to have a space between your barrels control bore and the breach that your ball gets to accelerate down before entering the barrel. If you have a tight bore or a barrel that doesn't have much of a chamfer (like a freak), I predict erratic and frustrating ball breakage.

As far as fixing the Crossover... The answer is maybe. I need one in hand to check out. Similar to many other guns... But, the last time I looked at an A5 barrel, I thought it would be very likely that I can replace those threads.
