The angry gun extension was a fail, but at least I can use the empty barrel extension.  I found a 370mm 6.01 barrel.  But a thought just popped into my head.  Is it bad for the inner barrel to be floating around inside an extension without support?  If so, what do I do about it?

Yes, in fact very much. The problem wasnt so much the inner barrel for me, but the extension. Ok, so first, i removed the flash hider and put a random o-ring that was snug around the inner barrel and brought it down to the threads. Then screwed the flash hider back on, then there is a little more support. Big problem was that the mock suppressor would sag and get in the way of the muzzle. Now you can simply wrap tape around the inner barrel till its snug with the extension. But i found that the LM4 hop up unit fits perfectly in the little star pattern at the end of the extension (at least the 5KU one). Then i put a little tape around the inner barrel until the teeth end of the hop up shroud was snug, screwed the extension's cap with the hop up shroud in it back on, and tah-dah, centered, solid, supported inner barrel. Very hard to explain without pics. Cant get pics though.

So basically just keep wrapping tape or something around it until it's snug with the supressor?  I don't need to cover the whole inner barrel do I?  How much of it should I do?

Also, with an inner barrel so long, the inner barrel can sag down too, causing a slight pressure issue or anything of the like that pertains to near the breach area. If you can stabilize the inner barrel with tape, or o rings, and have it completely flat and align with the hop up bucking and keep it stable, then you will have best performance. If you don't have those barrel stabilizers (as I think I'll call them from now on), the barrel will slant and definitely decrease performance.

Do I need to cover the whole inner barrel inside the extension?

No, I would just find a place close to the muzzle to support it.

If you put that o ring under the flash hider like I mentioned earlier, the middle should be plenty supported.

1. Remove flash hider.
2. Find an o-ring that is snug around the inner barrel, and smaller than the outer barrel.
3. Slide o ring down to the outer barrel's muzzle.
4. Put flash hider back on.

The flash hider will hold the o ring tightly in place. The tighter the o ring is to the inner barrel, the more stable it will be.

Oh ok.  Well I'm going to probably sell the qd outer and just get a regular 14mm extension with the adapter.  What I have now wobbles around and just the concept of that doesn't seem good.  I got a buyer anyway lol.  Thanks for the help.  Time to start saving again from work :(

Excessively high lunch prices aren't doing me any favors in highschool.  I swear student council is useless.  We ask for one thing and one thing only.  Lower.  They end up higher this year lol

Only gets worse once you get to college. But, this is not the time nor place to complain about… life. I need to learn to stop going off topic so much.
