T8 to T8.1 barrel differences

If this has been asked before I am sorry but my search skills are not great. So I have never really monkeyed around with a T8 and was wondering will a T8 barrel fit in a T8.1? Will it work with first strike rounds if it does fit?

the notch where the ball enters the barrel is round on the t8 barrel and on the 8.1 it's shapped like a fs round. think the barrel is also biger on the 8.1.

Short answer...the barrels are not compatible across generations.

Long answer...T8/9 barrels are different from T8.1/9.1 barrels for the following reasons:

Different barrel OD (I believe the .0 barrels are 7/8" and the .1 barrels are 1", but don't quote me on measurements)
Different locking system (yes they are both twist lock barrels, but the .0 barrels use 2 pins and the .1 barrels only use 1)
Different detents (the .1 detents are bigger and cannot be applied to the .0 barrels)

The shape of the breech is irrelevant. There are standard .0 barrels and FS .0 barrels. The .1 barrels can only be bought with an FS breech.

Nothing more needs to be said; barrels cannot be swapped between generations.

I emailed flasc and they aren't making 8.0 barrels. Seems like lapco is. Thanks for the link!

Do the flasc accessories (tips) fit the lapco or Tiberius threads?

Looking for something to compliment a recently acquired MP7 shroud. A Stiffi sounds nice but won't go as well.
