Hm. I saw that it was 'Standard ATS threads'... are those like the Unisizer? Could I just get an A-5 threaded one?

I know that they're all Pro-Lite threads, but if I already have the inserts and the stock barrel for the TPX could I just get an A-5 Python body?

Taken directly from the TPX Python Webpage...

Quote:
The TPX Compression System is specially designed to fit inside the body of a Tippmann TPX. A standard Tippmann A5 body will NOT work on a TPX.


I take that as meaning the TPX Python will fit in the Barrel Sleeve of a TPX but a Standard Python will not fit in a Barrel Sleeve of a TPX because it is to wide...

You could drill the front of the barrel out for freak inserts and make a threaded cap to go on the end to keep the insert in. This would keep the bolt from getting stuck in the insert. Just an idea.

Hm... I wonder if you could just mill out the back 2" of the shroud to 1" ID and then just screw the A5 adapter into the breech... I have machine shop access but not $85 access. :P

thisissparta,,,

You could try that but changing out inserts mid-day would be a pain in the rear if you had to... I would give machining out the Barrel Sleeve a go since you already have the A-5 Python kit...

Not really, it's what I do with my Gargantom... I have the Python kit cranked into the body with a bit o'teflon, then just drop in the insert and slide in the barrel. If the TPX barrel is 7/8" OD it should work perfectly, I'm just wondering if there's some limitation preventing you from doing this.

thisissparta,,,

If you have a set of digital calipers I would measure the wall thickness on all four side and do a center diameter measure were the barrel goes through the sleeve and see if it is thick enough... Also measure the thickness at the knurled portion of the Python back as well ( because the knurled portion of the Python back is the thickest part if I remember correctly )...

I would mill it out to a little deeper than the Python back to give you a little wiggle room if need be...

I know this an old thread. But I have played a weekend game with a tpx with Freak bores. It's cool for games where its field paint only if event paint only. In my T8.1 I use only Draxxs Blaze or First Strike rounds. But I do know some one that will bore the tpx barrel for Freak inserts.
