Alright, due to the number of requests that I get I will now start to take barrels for freak boring.

Price will be $30 per barrel plus actual shipping back to you. I will be accepting barrels in trade. I will offer a discount of $10-15 per extra barrel you send along. You pay when I ship the barrel back.

Things to note:

  • Not all barrels can be freak bored. If it's one I know works that's fine. If I haven't seen it in person I'll need a picture with a ruler.
  • This is custom work - I try to do them quickly but if you send it to me expect me to have it for a month or two.
  • If I kill your barrel you don't have to pay. I'm not going to buy you another one or give you any compensation in return.
  • I don't suggest freak boring on barrels that are already small bore. I don't suggest using an insert bigger than .004 smaller than the original barrel. For example, if you send me a .693 to bore I don't suggest using a freak insert bigger than .689.
  • If I'm too busy to do your barrel I might tell you no. Don't take it personally, this is a sub-hobby for me not a business.
  • The simplest way to get a freak bored barrel is to buy one I've already done. Check with me to see what I currently have in stock.

Nice of you to do this Bryce. Your barrels have worked awesome for me thus far.

I think so - post a picture with a ruler or something else that I can check scale on.

Would you be able to bore the back from an FEP 007 barrel?

Might be worth using if I can get that done... .696 is a little large for my tastes :lol:

Indeed it does, and yes, I can.

Unfortunately, it's a little too big for my little ruler, and I can't find a different one at this point. Let me know if you need anything else.

.003-.005 is absolutely safe - that means .684 would be a great choice. that's big paint compared to what I'm used to seeing - you sure it's that big?

TMS - I don't want to do the spyder barrels - too close to the size of a freak insert.
I can bore the stock Ion barrel if you want.
How long is the back on the Lucky barrel?
I can bore the stock G3 barrel.
I don't want to attempt the maverick barrel - also too close.
I can bore the phantom barrel.

It's $30 a barrel for boring plus the cost of return shipping. Which do you want to have bored and what barrels do you want to trade for the service? I will take any barrel that I listed as something I can bore.

I remembered!

Shaft 3 back length is 7 3/16".
OD on the thinnest part in the middle where it tapers in is 13/16ths.
OD on the part in the back where it threads into the gun is also 13/16ths.
ID is 11/16ths.
There's still about an inch of control bore that extends past the length of a freak insert before the bore for the front threads starts.

don't think so. snap a picture of the tip with a ruler or tape measure for scale. The tip needs to be almost 1" outside diameter to work.

Its been sitting in a gun case for almost 2 years, I think a couple months and a few hundred dollars would be well worth the wait:) It needs some machining work, mq valve doesnt sit far enough back in the lower tube and back grip frame hole was stripped. The marker body is a Docs fastback matted to a Dye U.L. frame with breakbeam eyes already installed. It is a fun gun to shoot when it is working. Consider it the first marker for "B Larson Marker Machining and R&R Service":) Disclaimer could be, aspiring P.E. with labor rates reflecting my awesomeness:)

I'd just like the phantom then I can do the ion barrel just let me know how much I would have to add. My friend wants the the lucky, other wise I would get it bored too.

sorry man, I don't really want to get into custom gun work. too much can go wrong.

I'd just like the phantom then I can do the ion barrel just let me know how much I would have to add. My friend wants the the lucky, other wise I would get it bored too.


I've got two options for you.

If you send me the phantom barrel to bore and the Ion barrel to keep you would pay me $20 plus return shipping (usually about $3).

Second option is to wait a while. I've got some phantom barrels coming in. If you wait till I bore them then send in your phantom barrel plus your Ion barrel I would send you a new phantom barrel bored for $25.

your choice.

post a picture. I did a shaft 2 kit - and it was difficult due to the outer shape of the barrel.
