Need Barrel Genius - Angel barrel doesnt fit?

Okay, got an old style thread barrel for my old angels (LCD/IR3). It is the proper thread. Problem is it doesnt fit, i can only insert it about half wa tto the threads and it stops. Tried it on three different angels and it stops at the exact same spot on every one of them. 2 Dark LCDs and a Dark IR3

The Barrel seems much thicker than any other barrel I have. Its stainless also, so I dont want to just jam it in and damage the aluminum body.

Any ideas?

- UPDATE. Tried it on both my IMPACT LCD and RIPPER LCD - tight but works on both of them. Now i am baffled. Seems like its catching internally on the body where the threads end and it switches to smooth aluminum.

Thats the old Ramrod barrel, but I cant remember the name behind the product.

Any pitting in the threads?

Might have been made to terrible tolerances. I wouldn't risk vintage Angel bodies for a barrel that's one of the worst ever to hit the market.

Is it catching on your volly? Might want to try it with just the end caps. If it doesn't want to fit, I wouldn't force it. That barrel is a novelty item anyway - no sense potentially risking a vintage Angel body for it. Examine the threads compared to some of your other barrels - see if they are off at all. If so, you may be able to use a thread file to correct them.

NO not on the volley. Stops on the same spot (you can see in in the doodoo brown pic). That is as far as it goes it. Not the threads, hasnt even gotten to them yet.
I sanded down the shaft before the threads on the barrel and it went in more, so it looks like the chrome plating is just a bit thick.

Besides, the novelty barrel is more nostalgic to me than the body >

Nah, I gotcha. On the doodoo pic I thought it might be hanging up on the volly, but it must just be the angle. Sounds like it's definitely the barrel and not your guns.

alright looks like the darks just dont fit. Fits fun on the impact which is my main gun anyway.

Shot it, straight as an arrow. Loud as a cannon. and i love it.

I remember the ad for this barrel, it was like a mag or something with a fistfull of Swampthing's weeds and mud in the front. Nostalgic indeed, but don't force it into anything. I've seen several people in the past put a barrel on too quickly, jam the threading, and were unable to dislodge it.

Freak bore it.

I don't think there's enough length on the back to Freak bore it. Not sure though.

Definitely is a blast from the past. I very nearly bought one of these for my LCD back in 2001.

It sounds like you got a lemon. The tolerances are way off. They do look they were hand welded in some Chilean sweat shop . My Ramrod fits all my Angels.

Ya Doc you are right there is not enough room to freak bore.

As a sampling, to get an idea of volume, take any 2-piece barrel, mount just the back, and fire.

That is because it is bigger then it should be. The reason it fits on some guns and not others is because of the thickness of anno on each gun. If the barrels was a tad smaller it would fit them
all.

Where did you find the barrel and how much did you get it for? Some people ask crazy prices for these.
