The Re-thread thread
Some of you know that I have been offering some light machining services for paintball guns.

One of the more unique services I offer is upgrading your gun to autococker threads.
When was the last time you saw a WGP barrel on a Spyder?

What kind of guns can I do? Well...... I can do spyders, trracers, anything that is unibody with a 1 inch outside diameter. I can rethread most barrels. I can rethread some barrel backs to accept autococker fronts. The list goes on and on...
One of Titus' SNY Nelspots
Trracer- Note that you will need to find another pump handle, or there is an additional charge to bore the old one to 1" ID. The handle is made of glass reinforced nylon, and is an itchy pain to get through.
Note the lower right corner. This is a Rich Breen custom barrel from... Well... Before he passed away. It was originally ProStar Kodiak threads. The barrel has been rethreaded to Autococker. In the middle of the toolbox is Wrongbloke's pump-mag. LINK->

Current Pricing: $35 and return shipping for internal OR external threads.

I can also thread barrel tips 7/8-20 for loudeners and other accessories.

Also ask about valve remanufacturing and other unique barrel options:
Seals down to 125psi, giving you every last bit of air in that 12 gram. Results not typical, but I certainly guarantee an improvement. (Works great on Dukie valves!)
Special projects? Maybe I can help. Ask about my rates for mechanical and machining services.

Threaded Guns KNOWN to work...

Old Trracer
Indian Creek Designs
Unibody Nelsons (Except Phantom, Phantom clones)

This list will expand as I do new guns.

I may have to bug you for some cocker threaded projects in the future.

I've already got all the tooling to do it quickly and reliably. And that tooling isn't going anywhere. So you're welcome to get in touch with me anytime.

BigOldSkool 06-09-2011 11:07 PM

Im to lazy to buy the tooling for the off chance that I actually need them. No harm in passing the buck.

I have to figure out what I want to do first, but more then likely youll be tapping one end of a brass tube more or less haha.

What exactly is it that you do to DRV valves?

alpha434 06-10-2011 12:25 AM

The way the valves are factory (from Dukie, anyway), they were cupped at a very low angle, which leaves a lot of surface area to seal against the face. This prevents the guns from sealing at all below 500psi.

I back cut the valve face, and leave only a small, deliberate bit of material around the edges for it to seal against. Which gets the sealing pressure down. Which can let you shoot a bit deeper into each 12 gram.

Hooligan just had me do two of his, and one of them he took to D-day this week. We'll see how he feels about it when he gets back.

What about re threading freak backs to be G7 Fly compatible?

alpha434 06-29-2011 12:54 AM

Nope. Ask me to look at rethreading your angel to autococker threads instead.
