Can you identify this barrel?

*** EDITED- As was suggested, it turned out to be a spyder barrel (the previous owner supposedly tried it on his spyder and it didn't fit, but it fit fine on one I had!)- thanks for all the help!****


Hi, I recently got this barrel in and I don't know what type it is, and more importantly, I can't identify the threading (see picture below). I can tell you its not A-5 threaded, not Cocker threaded, not Spyder threaded, not old school ICD threaded, also not twistlock

It seems to have more metal past the threading part than most of the aforementioned barrels, so I didn't know if it might be angel threaded, but it doesn't seem like enough for that.

See if you can figure it out! Also, I will be selling it (since it doesn't fit on any of my guns), so if you have an idea on a fair value, include that too!


Here are the pics:

looks like a Raptor thread, except the shank is too short. Sterling?

Going by Doc's Thread page, the thread's way too short for it to be a Sterling. I don't see anything for the Raptor for comparison.

I'd wager going by the page, it's an F1 Illustrator or Trracer thread. Likely the latter as the thread depth tapers off at both ends.

Keep in mind my experience is pretty narrow.

It looks like a stock spyder TL barrel..

Maybe the threads are just buggered?

Yep, that looks like an older Spyder TL barrel. Can you see and feel the machining marks on the outside? It will look like a bunch of rings and if you run your fingernail up and down it you can feel it.

took some pics of a stock Spyder 2000 barrell I have, and I must say they look very similar allthough not identical. Mine has four holes in the "muzzle break" and more millinf on the back, but the htreads look very similar. Took the pics with my phone so they arent the best.

Here's some Raptor threads. Note how all three look. the camo SP barrel actually has less threads than the eagles works and the Freak back. I bet PJ hasn't even noticed lol.

The guy who traded it to me said it wasn't spyder threaded, but I tried it on my compact 2000 at the advice of all here, and sure enough, threaded right on- thanks for the help!

Did too, but it fits, so no worries. Of course, the only barrel of the three that I actually use is the Freak back.

Later barrels were different from the earlier ones, and I believe they were slightly different from TL to TL+ too. I know that my TL barrel is different from my friends later TL+ barrel.
