A/C Threaded Luxe

Well I got tired of having to buy impulse threaded barrels when majority of everything I shoot is A/C threaded so courtesy of Doc's Machine shop I have had my Luxe body converted to A/C threading.

I need to have the kit anodized to match but Ive been debating having the entire gun anodized, then re-wrapping the body and some accents in cf vynl w/additional clear coating but these are still ideas im toying with mentally first.
















For reference here is how she looked before with the matte carbon. Im going to rewrap it using the gloss carbon & tinker with hitting it with some clear coat for a really deep gloss but have also been debating getting it re anodized in a deeper gold.

Pretty awesome, but do you really need any other barrel besides the stock Luxe barrel and a Freak kit?

What did it cost to do the thread conversion? I'd seriously consider sending my Luxe body in for that.

Thanks! As for the questions here we go.

Its an sm3 orbium kit

Doc charged $60 w/return shipping

Yes I agree impulse threads are better but fact remains a/c barrels are easier to find and in my opinion still used more ofton, in my case I have more a/c threaded barrels than impulse so i made the switch.

Its a milled insert

Yea the stock freak barrel is nice but I like to try out different kits every now and again. This season i changed my luxe to perform at a very low operating pressure thus making it very quiet especially with that barrel combination. I wanted the smoothest/quietest shot possible.

NDZ Can
NDZ bolt guide No Rod
Slotted Solenoid
Polished Nox Bolt
FT Screw in

Haven't cycled it with the new barrel yet but by Monday everything should be buttoned up & time to sling some paint.

its cool but for 60$ you could buy a whole insert kit, while its pretty cool it can be done i love the impulse threads.

Personally I love the Luxe threads... they don't bind and it's so quick to unscrew you can actually remove your barrel to swab and be back up incredibly quickly.

With that said, I'm stoked that you personallized your Luxe and you are happy with the result. Doc does nice work!!

Thanks bud, I have nothing against impulse threading, its better in all aspects, its just I happen to own more a/c threaded barrel kits 1 of which isn't available in impulse threaded so I decided to change them. This way all my barrels are interchangeable. Less crap in my gear bag makes me a happy camper.

Glad to hear this worked out well for you! If it is a step forward for you then I am glad to see you found some fine work done on the luxe.

Personally none of it appeals to me, but that is why they have different flavors of ice cream.
