Unsure about barrel fit. Please help! (Pics Included)

I have a Spyder 2009 Victor. I purchased a Smart Parts 16" Progressive Barrel with Spyder Thread to replace the stock. The new barrel screws in, but is not flush against the body of the gun. There's about 1/2 inch of space in between the barrel and the gun. However, the barrel is snug and the logo is aligned properly. I'm wondering if this is a normal fit for Smart Part barrels on Spyder markers. The only issue I can think of is that I purchased the barrel off of ebay and possibly received a different threaded barrel than the Spyder one that was advertised.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

that's a tell-tale sign that the barrel is not the correct threads.

Yeah that looks more like cocker threading than spyder. Someone sold you the wrong barrel.
