Can't find a barrel to fit an old Nelson body
I got a body in a parts pile buy on here and I an not sure what barrel threading it is. An old style angel barrel starts to thread but stops. AC barrels won't even slide in until the threading starts. Spyder barrels slide right in but won't thread and I think my A5 barrel did the same thing. It has the longer style bolt and is a right feed that I can cream and jam a tube right into. I can get pics of it if needed. Thanks guys.

I've got some pictures if that will help some.

Looks like a taso body from either a spartan or vindicator. Probably takes taso threaded barrels which are uniquely threaded.

Do you by chance have any Bacci? I may but a couple of different cheaper barrels to try in it. Other than the ones I already have of course.

I agree. I had a TASO Spartan years ago, which had threaded barrels. The threads were similar to, but not, 'Cocker. I never measured/gaged it back then, but I was led to understand it was a thread unique to the Spartan and Vindicator.

If you'd like, I could cut you a custom barrel for it, either rethreading an existing barrel (if one can be found with sufficient 'meat' to it) or making a from-scratch Freak back, for example.

I'd need the body to measure and fit, but otherwise it's a straightforward mod.

Well I bought a random unknown barrel that someone had hoping it would fit and alas with my luck it didn't. So the search is still on!
