F-1 had their own threads. The Raptor also uses F-1 threads..

nope, A5 threading is not compatable. Just use Raptor Barrels. They are the only ones that fit the F1.

FYI, you can get Raptor threaded Freak backs from eBay still. they have about a dozen left last I looked.

IMHO, the best barrel you will find for the F1/Raptor is the J&J ceramic. Again, available on eBay, and actually very inexpensive.

Believe me, if F1/Raptor barrels fit A5's I'd be set, as I own all 3 types of markers.

A5 barrels DO fit older tippman markers like the pro-carbine though

If that was the case, then the A-5 uses F-1 threads, since the F-1 came out first, back in the early '90s. No, F-1is and Raptors have their own threading, which is similar enough to the Sterling threading such that an F-1/Raptor barrel can have some of the threads removed and fit in the Sterling perfectly.

The A-5 has no threads it uses an adapter to have Pro am/lite threads.

Raptors use F-1 threading for there barrels.

The best barrel for a F-1 is the stock barrel it was the first barrel to use mill spec hard anno inside and out. The barrel easily shot through breaks it was also pretty paint agnostic. There are a lot of good barrels out there for the F-1 new ones still on retailers shelves too.

no to hijack B, but I have an A5, and it's currently sporting a pro-carbine barrel. No adaptor needed. Fits like a charm, and looks great with the Lapco Shroud on it.

I think the confusion was from the fact that the Pro-Lite, A-5 and F-4 all share the same threads. That's probibly what the guy from PBN was thinking of.

(Yes, I know the A-5 has a thread adapter built in that can be changed.)

Side note, my A-5 that I purchased when they came out is different than one of the newer ones I saw the other day. Mine had a removable threaded section that you had to disassemble the body to remove, the newer one had the barrel attached to this twist lock thing and it came right out with 1/4-1/2 turn it seemed.
