Barrel feels tight when going on

My barrel(stock) feels really tight when i put it on, like tooooooo tight, and makes almost liek a grinding sound. i looked in there and theres liek no dirt or anyhtign and i oiled the thread a bit and that didnt help any either.

It could be the paint on the barrel like the actual paint not paintball paint. My JJ sometimes does it, Im pretty sure that its normal.

it's nothing to worry about. just the sound of metal and metal rubbing against eachother.

a drop of oil can't hurt.

if its not chopping or anything, i dont think its anything to worry about. i dont remember when i had my stock barrel it chopping or anything, but hte stock barrel has horrible accuracy anyways.

id suggest a new barrel simply because the stock one is horrible. but it sounds like nothing to worry about if all it does is that

mine doesnt make any noise, but then again I dont take my barrel off that much...although the stock barrel is horrible, its makes it a little better if you polish the inside...that's what I'm doing until I can find a 14" j&j to swap w/ the 12" I have on my primary, and then swap that out...if that makes sense...but the barrel still sucks, just not as much as if it was polished

yea i had the same probelem when i first got my new barrel. the from top screw could be too tight and you could try putting a little oil on the big oring at the end of the barrel. that worked for me and it fits just great. good luck

if what i said didnt work, the only other thing i could think of is that the screw holding the front grip in could be too tight. sorry thats all i can think of that could be stoping it.

Yeah you should be fine. If it really bothers you you could wipe the threads with a cloth or something but as long as it doesnt chop your good.

my stock barrel goes on rather loosly and seems rather loose after a while, thats what lead me to go to the j&j barrel besides the fact that i found out how bad the stock barrel sucked when I had something to compare it to.


trust me...this, as well as many other things in life, are better when they are tight

I took a strip of 800 grit sand paper, about half the circumference of a broken barrel swab squeegie, wrapped it halfway around the swap lengthways, then ran it through the barrel repeatedly, blew it out and held it up to a light until it was nice and shiny and smooth looking on the inside.

What's worse- The *grinding* sound or the *snap/pop* that fixed it? =)
...Just kidding.

The 98 was never known for have tight tolerances. It's probably a combination of that and the threads not being really smooth. I think they already had you check to see that the O-ring was on the barrel, without that you could screw it in a little further than needed and it might bind up a little.

That's a good idea on how to polish the stock barrel. Another could be (and I haven't tried this, mind you) would be to put the barrel into a vice or clamp, and chuck a cheap swab into a drill and slime it with polishing compound. Spin it slowly and work it back and forth through the barrel. Use a cheap or broken swab though...you'll probably ruin it beyond belief.

I'd give it a try to see if it worked, but I don't use the stock barrel and I also don't hate my swab that much. It still wouldn't get rid of the reverse taper bore though.
