hey guys, thought id share this with you all.  recently removed the second piece to the outter barrel and found an oring at the tip of the inner barrel.  now previously id wrap my aeg inner barrel with teflon tape for a tighter fit to the outer barrel, limits the vibrations and gives better groupings.  

What ive found is that i can replace that stock oring with a larger one and the barrel is completely stabalized, not moving at all.  heres what i used

Very interesting. I like the sound of this. Always interested in ways to accurize my weapons.

It's tight but not so tight that the outer barrel can't be pushed on.  I tried the same new oring on the inner barrel and the outer just pushes it down to the threads.  But when put where the stock oring is its very snug and stays in place.
