Barrel Orings

Is there such a thing as a standard sized barrel oring? I seem to never have an actual oring for my barrel, besides whatever misc. thing I throw on. Heck, I just got a new barrel without an oring!

none of my cocker barrels have o-rings. all of my spyder ones do. my automag twist locks have two each... but they need those to hold the detents.

I don't use o-rings on my barrels because they're only straight when they are completely screwed in, if there's an oring I feel like the barrel is off a little bit and my shots will be off. Call it a superstition if you will.

Nope, no standard. Some use them, others are not meant to use them (i.e. double threaded impulse/ion and spyder barrels take them whereas autococker barrels don't)

Wow. I never knew that, I always thought orings were needed to keep the barrel from vibrating loose. Thanks for the info!
