    Redux Barrel Thread

    What barrel thread type is the VKC Redux?

    #2
    As far as I understand it, they are custom barrels. Since the freak insert only sits about 2/3 of the way inside the barrel (the snub houses the rest), I don't think you will be able to pick up anything and have it thread in. And it does require the freak insert to work. No barrel I tried even came close to threading in when I had mine. I think the closest thing I can think of is that it is more similar to barrel tip threading, like Dye UL or Freak tips, than it is to Autococker/Spyder/etc.

    As for the actual thread pitch/diameter, unfortunately I don't have mine any more to measure.

      Lt. head-shot thank you for your response!

      I am actually trying to figure out what thread # it is, and then have a barrel modified and rethreaded to work with it.

      The search continues!

        mOngo himself proclaimed back in 2010:

        "confirmed thread specs for Redux: 7/8-18 set up a little loose for ano"

        Head shot makes a good point about the freak insert though. Whatever barrel you have modified will need to be similarly (partially?) bored. A single bore barrel (even re-threaded) wont reach far enough into the snub to chamber a ball properly.

          Nice snag from the way back machine! All my recent tries to get threads from there have turned out to be duds. Well done!

          Myguns2fast4u - I'm assuming you bought the VKC duck that was recently for sale. If so, your likely best option would be to send your donor barrel and VKC barrel to an airsmith and have them copy it exactly (minus whatever changes you had planned). If that is not an option, the next step would be to get a good set of calipers and work with whomever you want to do your barrel work. If you can measure how far in the insert should fit, outer barrel diameter, etc then you should be able to get something made. If you don't have an airsmith already, I'd recommend BMC Fabrication. He's has been really good to deal with. I recently had him make a barrel for my Carter Duck, very similarly to what I think you are trying to do.

            PumpMan10988 Thank you very much! Really great find!

            Lt. head-shot Appreciate the note about the freak insert, much easier to work with that known variable. Yes, was planning on working with BMC or SSC to accomplish this. Really appreciate the recommendations!

            Thank you both for your help digging up this information.
