Extcy Barrel problem

Hello, my buddy bought an Extcy a couple days ago and today we went down to the local field to break it in.
The gun worked great, no problems at all.

Now I also have an Envy and just bought a CP 1 piece barrel. I used my other marker so I thought he would like to try it compared to his stock barrel.

As he was played the CP barrel would unthread itself after a few shoots.

Tried it it after on my Envy and the same problem happened...Not sure what it could be?

Thanks for any info u could give me!

Ive noticed this on a stock barrel as well but if you wiggle the barrel as you screw it in it will go a little bit farther so it will tighten down and not come loose while playing

Or just put an oring behind the threads where the step in the barrel mates up to the breech when the barrel is screwed in.

It's because the Oring behind the threads on the barrel may be too thick...

or that there isn't one at all.

Not a big problem. I think it's a bit typical of SP threaded markers because of the coarse threads.

I'd just put some threadlocker on it and leave the barrel on for the day.

when I say thread locker, I mean plumber's/teflon tape. Please don't use loctite or some ****.

My bet is on a missing o-ring. I had this problem with a really old marker where it used an o-ring, but I lost it and didn't realize. Without one typically the thing will continuously unscrew itself, but simply putting a properly sized o-ring behind the threads on the barrel will make it snug.
