T8.1 barrel in a T8?

I just got a T8 with no barrel, so I'm in the market.

It looks like Lapco doesn't make a barrel that's the same length as the stock barrel, and I don't want a longer barrel sticking out of my UMS compensator. Since I got a bunch of .1 magazines, I'd like to run First Strikes at some point, so I'm wondering if a stock 8.1 barrel would work in an 8.0 gun? I don't think the lug system changed at all, but on the off chance it did, what changed?

TL;DR: I want to put an 8.1 barrel in an 8.0. Will it work?

The T8 and 8.1 have different sized barrels.

The 8.1 barrels are significantly thicker and I believe the interlock pattern is also different.

So no.

Sad day.

Oh well, worth a shot.

Also, I just had a question. I got one of your triggers from someone who had bought it but never installed it... I was showing it to my machinist friend today and we were wondering what it was made out of... it looks like it's just raw metal, but he's convinced it isn't 6061. Any insight?

You just need stock barrel right? I may have one, let me check.

You can have it just pay shipping as soon as i get home and look for it.

Yeah man. If you do have one, that'd be awesome! Thanks a ton!

This is why I love MCB.

The standard T8 Lapco barrel is only 1" longer than stock. It does not stick out from the compensator (ok, it does but only very very slightly- less than a millimeter and it doesn't look bad at all).

Get a lapco and cut it down. Pipe cutter and lapping compound and a big ball bearing.... No special tools needed

Yeah, I'd like to get the lapco, but they're also rather expensive. I've cut and crowned a barrel before, but the price of the lapco is the biggest disadvantage.

Looks can be deceiving. They are made of 6061.

These are pics of a Lapco barrel for the original T8 and UMS compensator. Barrel is unmodified, just nothing on the threads (obviously).

There was also a longer barrel that was made so you could use muzzle brakes WITH the compensator, although why you would want to do that I have no idea. Those barrels however were done in a limited run and very few seem to circulate out in the wild.

So if worrying about it sticking out is your main reason for not going lapco, don't worry about it. If cost is the bigger concern, well, yeah, I don't really blame you.

My biggest beef was that they milled them to work in both the T8 and T9 for the hopper feed so the extra set of grooves stick out of the barrel window and look like crap, IMO.
