For those worried about the back bottle screw in, I would suggest attaching an air thru t-stock and run it with a remote line. I have one on my old trracer and it works great. I like what I an seeing with this!

Born4Evil seriously sounds like the devil himself, and its awesome. That gun is hands down the most badass gun in my mind.

I wasn't referring directly to you.

There's been a lot of hate for the "plastic" on the new Traccer.
I think most of that was about the over abundance of rails.

Thinner like what? I tested mine with every Cocker threaded tube I've got, and had no problems with anything. The stock barrel tapers down once it gets ahead of the pump handle - it's only thick at the back. I suspect the "knuckle" that old Cocker barrels had (like my old J&J Hard Chrome) and today's two-piece barrels have from threading the halves together (ie, BoomStick, UltraLight) or thickness at the back for various reasons (J2 CCM barrel, old style Freak) all set up to about the same deal. Just about everything is going to have that one inch portion somewhere.

As a shorter answer, yeah, if you had something really thin that didn't have an external step somewhere, you might get a little wiggle. What sort of barrel do you have in mind that might cause this?

Edit upon reading the other thread. Carbon fiber barrels, right?

I'm assuming he was talking about shooting alternating FS rounds with the Apex turned off and normal balls with the Apex engaged. That should work fine, though I've heard there may be a clearance issue with the pump arms if you were hoping to be able to switch on the fly from the hopper to a theoretical FS magazine.

One of LordOdin's videos on Youtube shows an FS round surviving an Apex-ing just fine.

The trick with using FS rounds in a pump is finding paint that matches the FS rounds. First Strikes are right around .687-.688 in size, so if you can't find paint large enough to match it you're either going to be breaking FS rounds or getting rollouts with your balls. One solution might be to carry an extra barrel, but that's not optimal.
