Barrel O-ring

i have a barrel o-ring on my 98c (#98-40), but my A-5 was used and didn't have one on it, but looks like it has a groove for it on the barrel. what i want to know is it necessary to have an o-ring on it? thanks.

The o-ring is mainly for the purpose of the barrel not rattleing itself loose to easily.
It also seals against the marker's firing chamber, and in theory, minimizes air leakage and improves efficiency and consistancy.

If you're barrel stays on without an o-ring, it's not needed

Not AZN level price, there's not too many electro markers priced at the same level as the Talon.
