hey while i was surfing the web trying to find the best deal on a dye boomstick, I found dye back that was rethreaded. the web page said that it did not effect the gun and would work like any other barrel. does any1 know if rethreaded barrels are bad because for $25 its not a bad deal for a $60 dye back.

just to update any1 interested in rethreaded barrels. i bought the one mentioned above and it worked ok. the threads work fine but what the company did to rethread it was to file the old threads away and put a sleave over top and use some **** glue to hold it in place. the next time i went to my field i used the new rethreaded barrel and after about 300 shots, my barrel fell out. i picked it up and was like WTF, it turns out that the clue did not hold and the sleave that had the new threads slipped off the filed part of the barrel. the sleave that had the treads to screw into the gun were stuck in my gun. i went and talked to the owner and asked him what i should do. he said he has never heard of that happening so it cant happen to often but it happened to me.:mad: he suggested using JB Weld (a metal welding glue that u can buy at an appliance store) but i used gorrilla glue. i put a super light coat of glue on the sleave that was stuck in my gun and pushed the filed part of the barrel back into place. LET IT SIT OVER NIGHT and try to unscrew it. it worked for me and i have put over 500 rounds through it and no problems yet. ONE HUGE IMPORTANT THING; DO NOT USE A LARGE A MOUNT OF GORRILA GLUE; G glue was made to expand so if u use to much it will expand into the gun and stick perminantly inside making ur gun and barrel unable to separate and now your gun is useless.( i used a super light coat applied with a Q-tip and the glue was spread out towards the front of the insert so when u push the barrel back into the sleave it does not push gorrilla glue into your gun eyes or the gun threads) also becareful to make sure the barrel is all the way back into the correct position on the sleave or it may never form a tight seal, which will ruin your barrel. hope this helps to any1 who has this problem. P.S. clean the old glue off the barrel beore using G glue
