    Should I get the Jarvis barrel for my Five-seveN to connect with my SWR Spectre? Will I need an adapter to connect the SWR Spectre and the Five_seveN?



    Jarvis Mfg barrel: "Thread pitch 10mm-1 right hand. "

    SWR Spectre: "...connects to conventional 1/2x28 tpi or threads with a maximuum depth of 0.600"."


    :confused:
     


  2. Why can't Jarvis cut the threads you want? Be sure to check it once it arrives as the messed up my barrel order once.

    I shot a 5.7 this weekend that had a threaded barrel. I don't know who made it, but could find out if you need me to check. The guy has a suppressor for it, but I don't remember who made it.

    Spectre offers a 5.7 endcap in addition to the standard 1/2x28RH endcap.

    Madhouse, did you ever finish your 5.7 project. My pistol arrived today and I was thinking of sending my barrel to these guys http://tornado-technologies.com/services.html to get threaded. Not sure if I should get the SWR adapter (I will be using my SWR Spectre suppressor) or the one from Tornado.

    From what I've read the Jarvis barrel cost a bit more, takes longer to get, and has had some issues. Not sure what is facty or fiction.

    Any hints would be great. I am planning to call SWR in the morning for advice. I want to get the pistol finished before December.

    Regards,
    Chris

    I called SWR today and they informed me the Tornado barrel conversion is the preferred way to go. Henry informed me that was what he had on his 5.7 at the shop.

    Hey Chris,

    I sure did! I went with Tornado Tech, and I definitely recommend that route!
