Using a barrel adapter with a barrel kit.

I picked up a Scepter 2000 barrel kit that has ion/imp threads and my marker has a/c threads. My question is, by using the barrel adapter will that decrease the performance of the barrel kit?

Or should i just unload the Scepter and get something with the a/c threads?

I'd try to get a cocker threaded back, rather than ditch the entire kit. Unfortunately I have no idea if the older Scepter backs are compatible with new backs, so you might be hard pressed to find just a back for that kit. You could try contacting Powerlyte but their website is currently undergoing updates (and has been for the past 3 months ). If I recall, someone posted a phone number for them on PBN in the Powerlyte forum, but I could never get through and they didn't return messages.

As far as an adapter, does anyone even make Ion-Cocker adapters?

You want the variable bore as close to the breach as possible for best performance. Usually an adapter gives you about an inch or so of what would in this case be an uncontrolled bore.

I would either trade it or sell it. But it's entirely up to you.
