Trracer, Hornet, Maverick, etc. Why do some bodies have "cut-down" threads?

I have a body in my possession that has the same threads, but is machined shorter inside so the barrels don't screw in all the way.

Here is a listing for a used barrel : https://www.baccipaintball.com/bar412.html#
The owner cut off their barrel to make it fit into this type of body.

What are these bodies so I can avoid them in the future? I guess the internals might have been useful, but this body is trash.

Maybe cut to use cci detents?

Some of them have cocker thread but with a longer shoulder (similar to angel thread), cutting the body down allows you to put cocker barrel on the body. in the other direction, some barrels were cut down to be mounted on cocker body ...

I have also seen custom sizer rings/tube that get squished between the barrel and body, similar as the resurrection or phantom or ATI ...

Not that very many people are actually hunting down Tigersharks these days, but...

Tigersharks use Raptor threaded barrels with a shorter breech end. If you want to have a Raptor barrel thread in all the way, you have to cut off some of the shank.

The same is true of Sovereign, Sterling, F1 and PEC Master threaded barrels. Along with Tigersharks and Raptors, these all have the same threading, just with different length shanks/breech end.

I have what I assume is a “shallow” Trracer in that I can’t thread my aftermarket barrel in as far as I should probably go by maybe 1/8”. My gun is super early, #1563. I lost my OG barrel so I don’t have anything else to gauge it against. It works fine.
