a paintball gun to school.

I am posting this up cause I thought some of my fellow Pistolero's out there could help me. I am looking for a new barrel for my TPX, as the stock one is nice, but I want something with a little more "piz-zazz" to the look. I want to try and find one that is also kinda functional. Hence, I am looking for a 7 inch APEX 1 barrel. I tried to find them in Apex 2, but google wasn't having it.

Does anyone know where I can find one of these short Apex Barrels made for A5/X7 threads? Or is it a custom job and I have to talk to someone?



Any info would be gratefully appreciated!

Need to read the subtitle in his topic. Its basically a continuation of what he was saying there.

Anyway.
Check out the F.L.A.S.C. barrels they are 6.75" and i beleive they fit the Apex 1 barrel only, possibly an apex 2.

A5/X7 barrel threads fit, but I don't want a 14 inch barrel on a 7 inch gun, that'd just look silly haha. I'd like to get something that gets as close to "snug" on the barrel to make it look like a suppresor as much as possible.

I also don't want to just get a "mock" suppresor, I'd like to get something with functionality, and I figure APEX 1 (or 2 if possible) is the way to go.

Cut down the barrel and re-thread it.
And I think that would look fucking awesome.You could barrel tag pretty easily :P

So if I am understanding this correctly...

If i got this barrel... http://www.flascpain...rel-system-7-5/ (with the APEX Ready adapter tip of course)

and this APEX 2 tip, http://www.flascpain...deluxe-adapter/ I could get the effect i am going for?

As long as the barrel is A5 threaded, I believe so.

Caution, that one looks like it flares out near the threads. Remember that the TPX can only hold barrels with a outer diameter. This one may be a little too large. F.L.A.S.C. does make TPX specific barrels though. I know Rockstartactical.com carries them as does their own company website.

Edit I just realized that was the company website you linked. Here's the Rockstar link. http://www.rockstart...dbl-687-tpx.htm

theres a way that you can use electrical tape to create the grooves that hold the apex on. Why don't you try that on a stock x7 barrel? they should be easy and cheap to find. If you're worried about the goop from the tape, a quick once over with clear coat or clear nail polish should help

Because I am looking for a shortened barrel...maybe I am confusing people...I want the barrel to stick out just a little past the TPX Barrel tip...like such...

I think my other post may have been deleted on accident or something.

I beleive this is the one for the Apex 2
http://www.rockstart...c-tip-apex2.htm

and this one works for the original Apex
http://www.rockstart...sc-tip-apex.htm

Seems like we have the same plans for our TPXs. However I'm going to mount my Contour HD on the bottom of it instead of the laser.

I'm not getting the laser, that's just a waste. I actually have a Picatinny Mount for my Drift Stealth HD170 that i am going to mount on it for barrel cam footage lol. It'll be impossible to put in my holster, but if I am running Pistol Primary that's how I'll do it.

Figured I'd post an update -
I've been getting a lot of people at my office into the sport and recommending them BT-4 combats as good entry guns. It dawned on me yesterday that they use the A-5 threads and have pretty narrow barrels. Picked up one from a coworker that bought an apex barrel and had no use for the stock piece. A little bit of electrical tape and...

BOOM !!!

Thanks for the compliments. However now that I have this thing assembled and can actually feel it, I think I may remove the camera at least. All that stuff on there almost defeats the purpose of going pistol only and keeping it lightweight. When I get a change to test it though, I'll report back on it.
