Re threading?

Does anyone know if a spyder threaded breach (from 468) can be re threaded to cocker threads?

The outside dimension measures 0.997"

the Lapco adapter i have that goes from cocker to spyder measures 0.993"

Can it be done and who can do it?

This is what the breach looks like once stripped down.

You can always have the end cut off and then install fresh threads. You'll lose an inch or so from your total length, but it will definitely work. SSC did just that for my Hammerhead->ATS barrel.

You mean cut off the barrel, doubt that would since i use flasc bor sizers. Beside all the barrels i have are cocker threads, just be easier to get the one part done.

To thread for cocker threads you need to be able to bore an 0.88" diameter hole 1.25" deep into the gun and then thread the first half or so of that (don't have that measurement handy here). .997 diameter should be fine, I've threaded several things with a dimensions of 1" one way or the other.

EDIT - Just checked, Spyder threads are 22mm (0.866) so boring to 0.875 should be easy.

Anyone with a cocker tap and a lathe should be able to do it pretty easily. If you're skilled you could do it without the cocker tap or the lathe, but not without both.

I could do it for you for free as long as you're willing to accept that I'm new to this and cannot guarantee success. That said, I'm reasonably sure I can do it, otherwise I wouldn't offer. I just got my autococker tap a couple weeks ago, and have threaded half a dozen things for autocockers so far with no mistakes.

firebat was able to thread the breach for me, though he end up crushing the other side of the breach. I think he learned from it and plus it's not a big deal since i sent him my old breach that i no longer needed.

Unfortunately shipping to Canada takes way too long and I am in prime paintball season now. Anyone in the US that can thread it from spyder to cocker threads it would greatly appreciated.
