Review: I got this gun used for about 40 bucks on ebay which is the only place you can get them now other than a local store. awesome gun, super reliable and light. When i go out with friends i let them borrow it and they love it and call it the "sawed-off". I honestly dont think there is much of a difference between this gun and my 98 custom other than this is lighter and shoots a little slower(but not much).

Im not sure if i just got a bad barrel or what but as i said in the weaknesses section i couldnt get a barrel to fit on it. I got on ebay, and bought the barrel and it had the right threads, but it was too big for the shell(im not sure what its called but where your forehand goes to hold the gun). So no upgraded barrel for me:/ but the stock is alright though
Conclusion: I would definitely get this gun again for 40 or 50 bucks. If you have a little more to spend, you might want to look into and autococker trilogy sport for around 70 bucks. I havent used the sport, but i know a lot of people like it.
10 out of 10

Some of the modern A-5 barrels which, even though they share the same thread pattern as the pro-lite, may have too thick of an outside diameter to slide through the forearm grip, which sounds like what was happening in your case. Some barrels have the opposite problem and will fit but are too skinny and look goofy with a huge gap between the barrel and the forearm hole. I recommend the CP (Custom Products) standard one-piece A-5 barrel, as they have decent accuracy, and they slide in just perfectly like a stock barrel. Hope this helps.

P.S. don't forget to loosen and re-tighten the barrel thread clamp screw (underneath the forearm) when changing barrels.
