Wink 06 London Nexus Q: Is The Barrel Tip Reverse Threaded ?

Just picked up a storm trooper 06 London Nexus Ego.
This thing looks like new except for the barrel tip.
My question is, does anyone know if the barrel tip is reverse threaded or not ?
Can't get it apart and I don't want to make it worse by over tightening it worse than it is.
Thanks

all shaft barrel tips are reverse threads, when you put it back together make sure the oring is on there (#015 is what we used in the factory but you can get away with a #014 or a #016, its not sealing anything just stopping the 2 parts locking up), there is no grit/dirt etc on both parts of the threads and put a dot of grease on the threads before you put it back together to stop them binding up, especially if you have it reanodised as i suspect you intend as the threads will be bone dry after, the earlier shaft barrels have a finer thread than the new ones and can be damaged if not greased.

Rinse it in hot water and then take two cloths or something for grip and twist 'er.

I'm guessing you're not the original owner? Some idiiots have loctited barrels together. My buddy got his SL66 like that.

Thanks guys.
Got it apart with a strap wrench and a bench vice.
Don't worry, I have the magnetic rubber things for the vice,
you can get them from Sears.
Not going to re-anodize, just easier to store in two pieces.

I've seen a few like that, my dark was the same way, want to smack the crap out of people who do that.
