Well when i unscrew my barrel, (which isnt even tight) the barrel adapter spins so much, that i can pull it out..
THATS BAD
because i dont want it do fall out or get shot out, i tightened all of the screws so much i stripped the one that holds the front sight in lol (my bad i know)

any ideas on how to fix this? without having to take apart the gun
i was thinking superglue edge of the adapter to the end of the receiver, or maybe like hot glue...

idk tho

thanks -0- spades

Call Tippmann they'll send you the new one with an o-ring to keep it from free spining.

You can do what Tom said. Or, while you have the clamshells apart, just put a layer of electrical tape around the adapter before you put the marker together. I had the same problem. I think the intent was for it to be able to be removed w/ a quarter turn insead of completely unscrewing the barrel, makes it easier to use the pull-thru squegee in the field.
