A Good Coupler
Posted 23 November 2007 - 03:36 PM
I need suggestions on how to make the 1/2 coupler easier to detach.
Also an explanation on the guy's FirstShot.
And any suggestions for a good, easy reloading coupler mod.

From the description you gave, it sounds like the barrels were 1/2" CPVC nested in 1/2" PVC or something of the sort. I have no idea why you would need to nest barrels like that unless the coupler he used was 1/2" PVC. Usually you only nest if the actual barrel (the one nested in the second material) has no coupler, and must be attached to the gun using the coupler of the larger material.
For an easier to reload coupler mod, try a speedloader. Basically, take two barrels and tape them together, pointed in opposite directions and with about 1"+ of the loading end (the one to be shoved in the coupler) hanging over the edge of the other barrel. Search for speedloader and you should find something.

Yeah I realized it was a speedloader the guy was using. Yeah I'll probably try sanding the barrel and the coupler.
I had a similar problem when I nested Cpvc into pvc. The cpvc would push out onto the pvc making it (the pvc) too big, I sanded the barrel to avoid the risk of messing up a coupler that was already attached to a gun.
Don't want to shove balls in tight spaces. Trust me, bad idea.
