    Hi Guys

    Can anyone tell me if the new Shaft 5 barrel backs are compatable with the Ethas stock reverse threaded front?

    It says compatable with Shaft 4 barrels but I don't know if that is what the Etha comes with and can't find any mention of the thread types.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the replies.

    Looks like the Shaft5 back will fit then, I like how they are doing them in different bores now rather using inserts.

    The shaft system is based on backs with different bores.
    If you currently need insets then you don't have the standard etha barrel, and have either a shaft FR or a different barrel system
    The shaft fr enables freak inserts to be used with shaft system fronts

    No I don't use inserts at the moment, definitely is the stock barrel.

    I thought I'd read the only the new Shaft5 backs are available with different bores.
    Not that it matters as sounds like it will fit.

    Cheers

    The shaft series are sized by the back, so you have one size with your standard etha barrel and can add other shaft backs
    No issue as shaft 5 backs will for allowing you to add to your set

    The issue is that sized backs can only be used with guns with a specific thread. My first autocockers threaded barrel kit wasn't very much use to me as I had tipmanns, spyders, ions etc and at the time i got the kit only one autococker threaded gun. At that time the two big threads were spyder and cocker
    Then i got a freak set and could use my set on any gun just by adding the correctly threaded back
    I now have many cocker threaded guns, but still an asssortment of others

    Eclipse use autococker threads (at the breach) and the shaft thread between front and back. So you get a compatibility among a number of gun brands and if you stick with eclipse then are more likely to have your backs fit the front that came with the gun
