What is this barrel?




14" Spyder threaded. Got it in a parts lot. Near the end porting, the finesh inside is swirled kinda.

Thanks ahead of time

Empire made a 'Twister' barrel, but I don't believe that's what this is. The rifling should help narrow it down though.

That looks like it's Tippmann threaded (Carbine). Back end looks way too short to be Spyder. I believe it's an older CMI barrel (one of the few companies that did "rifling"). Tippmann also had a "sniper" barrel that resembled that one a bit too though. Unfortunately I can't find pics of either.

Just put it on a few of my spyders, threads in all the way on all of them, But yes, the backend is shorter then all my other spyder barrels, about 3/8" shorter.

I'm not sure how simular the carbines threading is, but it's going in without any trouble.

I held it up next to my newer CMI barrel, the size is exactly the same. Only thing different is the porting/back end lengths.

I'll take a side by side.

its a Tippmann sniper barrel, I use one on my sl68 when I want to quiet it down. It's pretty nice barrel, just polish the inside a little, it is pretty much a Tippmann stock barrel with a muzzle break.

Tippmann by the port holes on the side, all of their barrels have some variation of that.

Cool, thanks.

I'll try it out sometime, see if there's any problems using it on a Spyder.
