Although this is not exactly a WHERE TO BUY post, I belive it is fairly important information regarding a product. Do NOT buy the OMW vulcan upgrade spring. I bought one, and after fireing a few belts, the plunger rod snaped in half.

Tired of reaming your hopper barrels for hours with a pair of scissors? This drill bit set from Harbor Freight will do the job.
There is no such thing as overkill. There is only cost efficiency.

Is there a difference between the petg sold by any of these retailers mentioned?? I'm looking to get the same petg that FA24 sells on his site because thats what i already have and it works really well with my darts.

VisiPak Medium Wall and McMaster-Carr PETG are indistinguishable. Same ID/OD as measured by calipers, and same perceived rigidity, weight (both are really too light, even in 4' lengths) and opacity. For all we know, they may even come from the same factory.

While this thread is up, I thought I'd ask: Is there anywhere to get red or other brightly colored foam now that Kane's stopped selling? Modman's website is apparently gone too. The fbr directory is horribly out of date, basically all the sources listed are no longer supplying.

EDIT: I just remembered FA's website, which has beige. Anyone know of anywhere else?

You can never take nerf too seriously, but you can easily take yourself too seriously.

I love these things.

They are the best deodorant clips and are great to integrate into flywheel guns. It hold 9-10 darts, and can be either attached as a clip, or left in with the bottom removed to just drops darts in for quick reload.

They can be purchased for $3-4.50 at almost any large retail store or CVS or Walgreens pharmacy.

I suggest you use them first as they are not cheap.


Everything you're saying is wrong, but none of it is against the rules. I just wanted you to know that.

Hey, I'm looking a barrel material that fits over cpvc well. Not too loose, but not too snug. I poked around at my local Lowe's and couldn't find anything. I've heard SCH 20 pvc works, but have to clue where to find it. Would this work, and is it possible to find in-store?

EDIT: Thanks Daniel. I'll try electrical conduit. I was also just fooling around in my basement and remembered that the faux barrel from Recons and Longshots slip over CPVC well also. I may cut a segment of that stuff off and try it as well.

Electrical conduit sometimes works. Bring a stub of CPVC to the store and test sections of it - the tolerances are very sloppy, and so sometimes you can find a batch which works.

Just as extra "evidence/proof", for the "1/2" x 4' Heavy Wall Round Clear Plastic Tube" (yes, I do realize that it is different from thinwall PETG), there is a button that says "Need a Smaller Quantity? Click here." right below the image of the product which redirects you to McMaster-Carr's website.

Sorry, I forgot the link.

Note: Yes, it is a slightly different product, but I'm just trying to point out that if VisiPak supplies McMaster-Carr with thickwall PETG, it most likely also supplies them with their thinwall PETG (or "cut to length plastic tubes" if you want to be technical)

Oh, and also, for the AmazonSupply website, would "Clear Polycarbonate Tubing" (link) be a suitable alternative to PETG? It's a good deal more expensive and also happens to be out of stock currently (or I would have ordered some to test). Thanks!

You can find some brass tubing for a pretty good deal on this site: http://www.hobbypeople.net/index.php/ I found 1/2, 17/32, and 19/32 brass there. The only problem is that i could not find any 9/16 brass <_< I hope this is helpful!

EDIT: I found some 9/16 brass http://www.hobbylinc.../k+s/k+s141.htm This site is better than the hobby people site. They have everything you need to make an angel breech brass-wise.
