Guide To Barrel Material
Posted 19 October 2005 - 02:29 PM
If you are new to the art of barrel replacements read this article by Cxwq. It should answer most of your questions and is a good starting place.
If you have further comments on or links to barrel modifications this is the place to post them. The idea is to have one place to answer questions on the subject without making new and redundant topics we've read more times than we care to.

I thought it'd be 1/2" for the CPVC and a bit more for the brass, but nothing fit my darts.

I was just wondering why copper dosn't work good for a barrel. I've all ready heard the story about copper is the stuff that comes from inbettween your grandpas legs but other than that i really don't know.

Use the barrel material that fits your darts. Period.
If you're using stock micros, 1/2" SCH40 PVC fits the tips nicely and 9/16" OD K&S brass or crayola markers or .55" ID PETG will do for the body.
If you're using stefans, nothing I say will help you because your foam isn't the same size as mine. Take a piece of FBR to the hardware store and start hunting. Then take it to the hobby store and do the same. Chances are you'll find something that works.

It's clear, lighter, easier to cut and can be ordered in sizes that more exactly fit your foam backer rod. Generally however finding it requires you to custom order it or get some from someone who has, were as PVC and CPVC can be had at most any hardware store.
Because you can match it to your FBR that you use for stephans allows superior performance in valve based guns where you want a perfect fit rather than the tight one you want for a spring gun.

If you can find a 9/16 drill bit, LET ME KNOW!
But yes, I believe you can.
