Default Ftp 900

Does anyone know if the EV2 mk 4 barrel will fit straight into the FTP 900 without machining

Thanks
John

The largest diameter AA barrel is 14mm which are on both the FTP and EV2 models. The difference being the EV2 barrel is nickel plated which increases the diameter a fraction, therefore stops it fitting an FTP without slight modification to the breech end of the barrel to remove the nickel plating.

But doesn't the EV2 MkI have a 15 mm dia barrel?
