Deadlywind with TPX?
I was wondering if anyone tried using a Deadlywind Fibur with their TPX to see if it fits in the shroud. Wasn't sure if the base of the barrel would fit in the shroud.

I thought of that at the local shop, my guess it that the aluminum part wouldn't fit, but without the shroud it'd be fine, although I hear that some people had problems with the bolt sticking inside some of the smaller inserts. I just went the dremel route and opened the shell up to accept an a-5 freak back.
Yesterday I dared to struggle. Today I dare to win.

Agentsmith had one of the first ones, I don't think he uses it anymore preferring his microhoned stock barrels.
I'm sure theres a theres on it.....
EDIT: A search revealed it was a stiffi fiber barrel.

The HH has a 1" barrel diameter if I'm not mistaken, which would be too big for the block that has TPX lasered on it. However, I have seen people simply remove the block to run thicker barrels, or you could try boring it out more. With the deadlywind I'd would guess (keep in mind I don't have either in hand to look at) that you'd only have to mill out a little bit toward the rear to make up for the thicker metal base.

The aluminium block is just unnecessary weight and has no function, I dumped it the first time I took it apart.
I have the Hammerhead TPX rifled barrel, and while I thnk rifling is bunch of BS, itīs actually really accurate barrel. I was shooting (and hitting) the same sized targets with same paint as with my ego9.
You're on an internet forum.
