    I think Palmers might. However there are usually tons of them for sale in the BST section. I've got several for sale if you're interested.

    I always loved my dye ultralite back in the day. Get back in though and found out how much paint size has shrunk. My dye is a large bore now. So I picked up a twist lock freak kit for a good score. I'll be rocking SP now simply because no one makes small bore single barrels.

    played for the first time in 15 plus years a week ago and noticed when i changed guns(i have 5 now)that accuracy fell off. checked my barrels with the leftover paint and found some were tight, some were so so and some were loose. i actually have around a dozen barrels all sp or armson and was wondering about newer brands or styles.

    If you are wanting better paint to barrel match, you will have to keep your eyes open for a TL Freak back or as WW says, look for a TL to AC adapter and get an AC threaded kit.

    Well my cp barrel kit goes down to .685. Not far enough for what ive been shooting. The .679 appears to be my ticket. So the cp kit is for sale and I'd like to find a gem of an AL twist lock to take its place.

    I'm not sure if J&J makes twist lock any more, but their Edge kits can be ordered with .679 & .676 backs.
    My wife and I have these for our mags.

    That's about as small as you're gonna get with a non freak twistlock barrel. They make AC threaded barrels down to .680, not sure why they stop at .685 in twistlocks.

    I know Stedpitcher has a TL freak back, but was wanting high dollar though as it was NIB.
