Is there supposed to be anything else keeping the detent more inside the barrel. because mine is pushed out of the way VERY easily. My paint to bore match is fairly close.. and Im even temped to put a tiny piece of foam and tape it down so the detent is a tiny bit harder to move.
Bad idea??

And back on topic.
The Rifled barrel, if and when it goes through. How will the rifled barrel affect normal paint.

my current set up is, qloader with paint on stock barrel with apex2 stuck on the end.
And mag fed FS rounds. And I put the Apex2 to "off"

wait u have an apex tip on ur mr5???

Yeah...is that weird?
Got to use it today. It was pretty cool.

And on a second note, directed at our friendly spyder rep
Please please please tell me there is some other type of detent in the works for this gun (still technically part of the barrel, fits in the thread)

nothing is holding the detent in the barrel. Any paint drops in right past it.
I had to cut a credit card and bend it so it applies constant pressure to keep the detent from being pushed out of the way to easily.
Anyone have other ideas?

A rumor surfaced by a Lapco employee that a FS rifled barrel will be launched at next weeks paintball extravaganza. I will report any news on this next week.
having trouble finding that 18" barrel, any local socal stores have it?.... also have u used it, how do u like it.... yes i know length doesnt really help but i like the look alot more but at the same time i dont want it hurting performance because of length.

also any update on the lapco barrel

i believe a adapter would be a better option, then a barrel direct. i have a emr5 and a mr5 and have some hammerhead barrels laying around id like to try.I used them on a mr1 and bravo salvo setup i had. They were amazing. Like to see how they match up.

I had the thought of maybe getting a hammerhead barrel and modding it to fit the E-MR5
maybe hack the threads off and dremel in the slides and oring indents

Updating this thread since I found a barrel adapter that works for us. See more details & pictures here.

You can, just get a LAPCO STR8 SHOT Apex Ready Tip (another brand might work fine too). My lapco tip fits well.

I'm doing the same, using the barrel adapter above + Hamerhead 686 fin and will use it with first strikes.
