** Originally the Ion (Smart Parts) barrel thread was known as the Impulse thread. The name was later changed to Ion thread due to that marker’s popularity. When Smart Parts began producing all their markers with this barrel thread it became known as the Smart Parts Standard barrel thread. In most cases, this barrel thread will be referred to as Ion.


** Spyder thread barrels were originally developed for the Kingman Spyder line of markers. When PMI introduced the competing Piranha line of markers, they used the same thread but named it Piranha Thread for marketing purposes. thus, Spyder and Piranha threads are the same thing.

** Autococker barrel threads, also known as AC barrel threads or Cocker barrel threads, were originally used on WGP Autocockers which were the most popular high-end paintball markers for years. As more high-end markers came on the market, they often used Autococker threads to appeal to former Autococker users. Thus, the Autococker barrel thread is the most common industry barrel thread for mid-range to high-end paintball guns. Many manufacturers re-named the thread for marketing purposes so you will sometimes see AC thread referred to as Mini barrel thread, Timmy barrel thread, or TM-15 barrel thread.
