Sly Barrel Question

Hey Nation,

Do the Sly Classic barrel Fronts work with the Diesel backs? One would assume the answer is yes but I wanted to clarify with you PBN folk.

Thanks!

According to ANS (i called them) the threads on the Classic are a bit different then the Diesel... guess they make more money on that...

So i spoke too soon. We tried it today and they do fit the threads are the same. the Classic fronts are a bit longer on the bottom (where it goes into the back) but they do seal properly. with a 14" front it'll be 18" barrel

Tried and True

I ran into the guy with the classic kit this past weekend, and checked the compatibility between his classic and my pro-merc. The classic fronts fit on the pro merc backs and seal nicely, but the classic backs do not fit the pro merc fronts. Although they are the same threads, putting a pro merc front on a classic back won't work.



Gap inside if pro merc front and classic back






pro merc back classic front seals properly
