I've never had a problem with First Call and I've never heard of a store selling rethreaded barrels. Usually people have it done at a machine shop if they switch marker brands but want to keep their old barrel (lots of Angel threaded barrels around, not a lot of Angel users)
Either way, you could fix the barrel you have. If the sleeve is threaded on to the barrel, screw it on all the way, or take it off, apply permanent loctite and screw it on. If it isn't threaded, remove it, rub some high strength epoxy on the inside and slide it back on and let it sit for a day.
