The hammerhead for the test gun (Tiberius 9.1) does not use fins.

Got ahold of LAPCO, they're out due to high demand. But are expecting more in a couple weeks. It's not on site and you have to get ahold of them to order currently. I want to, but what's holding me back is the .683 size. The current batch of FSR that I have are all .686 or so.

I don't want it too tight to hold back the round from it's purpose. The way it's going I might have the rep put me on the list anyway...

Any chance they said anything about maybe doing a larger bore rifled barrel?

He just got back to me via email on that one. 683 is currently all they offer for the cocker threaded rifled barrel. The reason being that it was focused to marketed for the DAM and Hammer7

EDIT: my assumption being 683 being a normal size to switch naturally between your paint and FSR without having to change fins/inserts. This barrel is all one-piece.

I dunno- except they are definitely not a thread used on any marker.

From another thread in the Kingman area:

In a similar vein - does anyone know if it's possible to convert HH threads to Autococker and, if so, who you could get to do something like that (the one guy I know who'd cocker thread anything is banned)?

Excellent. I have shot several thousand FS over the years and noticed that under 30 meters or so they really have a bit of a spread. It's good to know that you saw this as well.
