Hybrid Rival barrel threading issue

I just picked up a Hybrid Rival and I've encountered an interesting barrel threading issue.

I tried screwing in my SL backs from my SL8R and they got stuck/wouldnt thread in past two turns. I took it to a local pro shop and they tried a DYE UL cocker back and it went in just fine.

So basically the Rival's body accepts some cocker threaded barrels but not all. Has anyone ever experienced this issue before? Are there different kinds of cocker threads?

An issue with PE barrel prior to the shaft 4 is the badge that sticks out. Try screwing your sl barrel again and see if the PE badge is obstructing you from screwing in the rest of the barrel. I know I had the same issue with my PE barrel and my shocker and autococker. Even the jewel on my lucky15 rubs on the body and front block on my free flow autococker.

It's definitely not a jewel issue because I tried my lucky un1tech barrel and it also got stuck at the same point.
