Yep. That's one of those complexities that we run into.

I'm definitely willing to take a look. There's alwas a solution, just not always an easy one.

AC thread od's are .965, I think. I can't remember at the moment, despite having done it 100 times.

my calipers say:
Flasc AC thread od is .930, the DW Null thread od is- .920.

more problems that i keep finding, are body screws that sit flush to the barrel. meaning i can pretty much forget about the whole idea as the entire barrel must be no wider than .875"...

Haha. That's right. I wanted to say .935. Which is what I machine mine to before threading. But your .98 remark threw me off and I don't have my print on hand.

I don't know about your body screws. And I don't have a TPX on hand. As you can see, just through conversation, we've taken care of every single thing that you once thought was a problem. When I have a gun in hand, I can make ANYTHING happen. Literally anything. Ask Deadpool for evidence. What??? Custom body shells for your TPX?!?! Yes. There are no limits as long as your funding can back the work.

It all comes down to the customer putting the gun in my hands to figure out. And then agreeing to having the work done once I decide on a process.

You ever get a hold of an NXT or luxe body to see how feasible it is? If not, what measurements do you need? I can't send it anytime soon, but I can probably ship you a luxe or NXT shocker in april or may to find out.

Distance from the nose of the gun to the feed.

Outside diameter of the threads. Inside diameter of the shank.

Smallest outside measurement of the gun in that area.

I can actually make a cocker threaded insert to fit into any gun... It's attaching it that's kind of a problem, and we need 1" clearance to do it. So even if there isn't enough meat left under the threads, I can still make a gun cocker threaded.

My new saying: Anything is po$$ible.

I've got an old Trracer I'd like to get rethreaded for AC threads. PM me instructions on how to proceed? I can send you just the body, right, not the whole marker?

It may or may not be possible. I would have to have the barrel in hand to decide if I can do it.

My policy is that I will handle return shipping if it turns out that it's not possible.

Another tpx question.

Could you put tippy pro am threads (a5) onto a cci barrel? I am very unhappy with my j&j tpx barrel.
