Dye UL

I bought a used Dye Ultralite.

The barrel seems to be 2 pieces because if you look down the barrel you can see the shaft is a tiny bit misaligned. Other than using brute strength to determine, is there any other way to figure out if its glued or just on really freaking tight? Any tricks to opening it?

Why not ask the person you bought it from if they glued it or not? Aside from that try one of those pipe straps or something like that.

If it shoots straight, leave it alone. Not worth crushing it trying to get it apart

Try a heat gun to soften the glue

Who would glue it, I have no idea, I just heard that they were some times glued. No clue.

I own PE barrels, are the 2 piece dye barrels threaded the same?

As far as I know only the PE barrels are reverse threaded

Dye barrels are not reverse threaded. As far as I know PE is the only one that does it. If its glue then a heat gun would be able to take care of it. Hair dryer will work too. If its Loctite then it will be harder depending on what was used.
