I had the same issue with the freak back on my Mini Buzzard. A Kaner Barrel back would thread in fine but everything else would seize about half way in. I took some sandpaper to the threads on the freak back. After about 5 minutes of turning the barrel against the sand paper I had removed just enough outer diameter from the threads that it screwed in fine.

This is alot cheaper than getting a barrel bored out or getting new inserts from Earon.

Wow, I thought I was the only one crazy enough to do something like that! LOL... I have a couple old backs so I figured it wouldn't hurt. I worked it for a bit using 150 grit, but I still couldn't get it to thread more than the first two threads so I stopped (I hated doing that to the ano).

We'll see how my detent mod (finger nail polish) works today at the field - just shot a nice 280-290 string through a.688 barrel using .684 paint w/ no roll outs (fired 6 shots) so we'll see...

Another alternative that I'm going to try, recommended by SSC, is a Empire Trracer Barrel... i found a guy willing to sell one for $25+shipping so I'm going to pick that up from him... it may end up under Ryans mill if it's not already at least a .685 bore
