Impulse thread.

The Freak is still one of the best out there. GOG now distributes them.

My ion and ion xe both used the same barrel threads. Typically the threads are different on the feednecks.

I'll shoot you a pm about a freak jr kit.

SP/Luxe/Ion/Impulse/ShockerNXT threaded barrels.

If you do buy a Freak, don;t get a full kit or even a junior. If you live in a state which is not really humid, you may want to save the cash from buying lots of inserts, for buying quality inserts and few of them. May I suggest Brass or Stainless steel inserts? Even used, they'll cost anywhere between $15 and $30 per insert, but they're much smoother, so they will cause far fewer breaks than the dinky aluminum ones. getting the sizes anywhere between a .680 and a .685 will help your air efficiency and consistency a lot as well.

eBay is your friend. You'll be able to get used inserts for fairly cheap money.

there needs to be a MASSIVE sign over all NON-BST forums that say "BST IN THIS FORUM WILL RESULT IN AN INFRACTION AND/OR BAN FROM THE SITE" or something.

Call me nuts, but it bothers me when people try to sell their stuff to people who have little or no clue what to do.

For the Back type you want Ion, and yes that's the thread type. If you had something such as a DM or Proto gun, you would want cocker.... but in your instance, Ion it is.

Front type, to my knowledge, is just the style of the front. I have two fronts, one being an all american front, and the other a teardrop front. They both work perfectly fine with the back, just aesthetically different.

It's actually Impulse. Impulse barrels were available before Ions existed.

That covers Ion, Impulse, NXT Shocker, XE, Epiphany.

You'll get more hits if you search Impulse threads.

He was on the gog site, which has it labelled as ion, not impulse.

You can buy the front, back, and inserts separately. That way you can pick and choose what inserts you want. You can't shoot a freak without the inserts.

Just get the front, back, and 2 inserts, like a 687 and a 689. Paint is smaller now. You don't need anything larger than a 689.

Ah... I'd disagree with that... If nothing more, carry at least one insert over .689... a .691 would be fine.

I'm happy for you. You don't need a big bore to shoot big paint. But if he wants to match it up a little better, why not just get the extra insert?
