You've got an extra 3/8" of gun that you could get rid of just to accept an AC threaded barrel.. for all the light weight lovers, you ditch the unnecessary portion on the barrel and you lighten the gun and make it shorter.

manike alluded to that in his post.

That is why WDP changed their threads IMO. Never seen any writing one way or the other (and never owned an Angel to inspect) but it looks like that is what they did.

yeah, they even said that is the reason they went to a shorter shank. the threads themselves are the same, just the shank and socket are different.

all in all, i think having a standard is more important then an 1/4 inch on the front of my gun, but those are my thoughts.

and frankly, all guns do come in cocker thread, except angels and smart parts. smart parts is dead, and angel is a ghost of what they were 10 years ago, basically if you buy a new gun today, its cocker threaded.

I don't dispute that the autococker barrel thread should be the standard; I've been basing my marker decisions around barrel continuity for a long time; it's the reason I bought a Wrath over an Ion.

BUT-

In a perfect world what would have been the best universal barrel thread?
This considering things like the common availability of tools, durability, and breech size?

phantom threads are downright stupid. why the hell would you use ACME threads on a barrel? its not a lead screw, its not for transferring power ... whats the point? and the stupid little lip? is that made to be destroyed when you drop the barrel?

sure, lets put house jack threads on our guns ....

i love phantoms and all, but seriously, the phantom thread is crap.

IF the barrels do break(which nobody really complains about), guess who'll be the first to be beaten to death with them?
