It is a spyder barrel. Read all the way. My barrel that goes on my TES won't go in all the way on my Genesis. They are both spyder threads. I think some are piranha and some are spyder threads. Either the spyder or the piranha has like 1 more thing of threads.

OK, spyder/pirhana threads are the same. For those who don't know, Dye has really been dropping the ball lately. For example, 2 months ago, I ordered a Dye .688 black UL back in spyder threads from PBGear. I get it, doesn't fit. I call and complain, send it back. They send a replacement, guess what? Doesn't fit. I call again, talk to a manager and explain that these barrel backs are NOT spyder threaded. Send it back again, a few days later the manager calls me saying their entire batch of UL spyder threaded backs if fudged up. That problem comes from Dye directly. Point is, the Excel in question may have that problem, Dye's quality control has overspilled into their barrels now. I always buy Dye barrels, anything else made by them is overpriced crap (Cocker parts, goggles etc)
So be warned that no matter where you buy Dye barrels, recently Dye has had some misbatches.

To see if it matches up to your bore, try this:

1.) Remove your bolt, completely.
2.) Shine a small flashlight into the bore ( one you can hold in your mouth since you need both hands, or have dad hold it for you)
3.) As you unscrew your stock barrel, watch to see where the barrel meets the bore.
4.) Screw in your barrel, if it doesnt meet the bore like the origional barrel your screwed.
5.) If it looks like it matches up, put the bolt back in, air it up and drop a few paintballs in and fire it, if they break in the area where the barrel meets the bore, your barrel is screwed due to the seam or space between the bore and barrel.

Kind of, they will break between the bore and the barrel, but most of the mess will be in the barrel. If your not sure, use your stock barrel.

Aye, they could, but also if the barrel is actually threaded onto the marker, you could damage the threads/barrel as well

Well, since he already screwed it in once, then it might be damaged already ?
