This will buff out...right?

Pics first, story after.




So I picked up this barrel locally. $50, I thought it was a pretty good deal for a Brass PPS AC barrel with single porting and freak bored! I put it on the S6 today and I could not miss! This thing shot laser tits extreme!!!!!!

Last game of the day (even decided before the game started.) Playing some air ball, I shoot out my opposite, then the next guy...and as I pump my gun and start looking for the last guy the barrel falls off!!

I thought it had just unscrewed. But when I looked down I can still see the insert sitting there...and the collar of the barrel is still screwed into the gun? WTF?!

yeah so...the barrel snapped off right after the collar. Really strange. I didn't bang it on anything or tork it in any way...I just pumped and POP, off it goes...


SO. Anyone think there is any chance at fixing it? Or am I just SOL?

I think it's fixable, not sure if it'll be pretty, but it's definitely fixable

Thinking of sending it to WALZ if he thinks he can do it.

Off to PM him now.

the freak boring must have weakened it. It would need to be reinforced for sure!

Did you try duct tape?

Yeah, freak bore + existing stress point (unchamfered step) = fail. I'd be willing to bet if you put a freak in there that you didn't mind ruining, then slid some tubing over the top of it that was the same OD as the "step", you could probably braze/solder it all together and it would still be relatively straight. Then again, for the $60 or so, could just wait til Palmers has a barrel sale again.

Those brass barrels are just too damn heavy for the thin wall that freak boring creates. That, and the material's too soft to not resist deformation at a weak point.

You're SOL on fixing it and keeping the freak bore. But a reasonable solution may be soldering the barrel back together with a Ty Mcneer brass freaksert in place.

Yeah. Thought of that. But I don't have an extra insert to sacrifice.

Oh well it was fun while it lasted.

Just buy one. It's a 95$ barrel. You can save it for $30.

Or sell it at scrap value. (I'd buy it.)
