2 questions, Diablo Deluxe Pump barrel and Automag Auto Response Spring

First Question!
Howdy, I happened to acquired a Diablo Deluxe Pump but with no barrel. I found a phantom barrel in the same bin and it threads in just fine. If this was forced by the previous owner, I don't know.

But to my question, The phantom barrel does not properly seat in the chamber as it cannot thread all the way back. Would it be good to drill out some threads so I can seat the barrel properly? I would rather use Phantom barrels as they fit the pump handle perfectly.

I am sure I can do this myself when I get time (couple months?) but I want to see what others have to say.


Second question!
Where the hell can I find a replacement spring for the Automag Auto Response trigger? I got a hold of one of those too but have no idea where to find a replacement.

Are you sure its you need to drill the threads and not machine the barrel?

A friend turned a Pro-lite barrel for me to fit my Panther. (Bought the barrel before I was sent the barrel that has been passed around with this hand me down Panther.

I saw how someone re-threaded theirs with autococker threads, and then I figured that Phantom threads would be better as the barrels seem to fit and look better.

Honestly I don't "need" to do anything shoots fine with the phantom barrel right now.

I am the one who had their cmi diablo deluxe rethreaded for autococker. I am looking at pics of the old diablo deluxe barrel I had and the threads are a lot courser then phantom thread which can cause the barrel to work itself loose.

Would you post up some pictures of the barrel you had? Just want to see what the threads looks like.

Thanks!

I’ve checked on pro teams website, could you direct me to the handle upgrade? I have a Diablo Deluxe (my first paintball gun) and I’d like to upgrade it as well.
