Does anyone know of a threaded barrel that will fit a MK2? I have looked everywhere but to now avail!

Thanks,
soticman

I use a Pro-Arms adapter on my M18c. How it works is that its a little 14mm threaded barrel segment that attaches to the inner barrel. You can use it on any gun that has a longer inner barrel. Its just finding a longer inner barrel that might be a problem.

It says its for glock but itll work for anything. I put some o-rings between the adapter and outer barrel so they dont scratch each other.

Just be careful. Adding too much weight to the front end of the gun... the inner barrel, can cause damage to the hop up unit, and other parts.

The thing is, at least in the M18c and most other KWAs I've looked at, is that the inner barrel stays stationary through the cycle and it is only the outer barrel that tilts and slides back. So if the barrel extension is attached to the inner barrel the added weight adds no stress and it still cycles just as quickly. I've only used this on the M18c and have not seen how or if the inner barrel moves on my MkII. If the inner barrel doesn't move much during cycling, this adapter is the way to go.

The only problem I can think of is if you smack the extension into something because it could damage the hop up or barrel, but you'd really have to bang it hard. A threaded outer barrel has the advantange of protecting then longer inner barrel. These usually have cycling issues however. If your not planning on sending this thing through hell and back and/or smacking it repeatedly on a wall, get a longer inner barrel (anything made for NS2 should work) and use this adapter i mentioned earlier.
