Okay, here's what I have:
A bunch of taggers,
A group of players that ban stefans
An indoor war that will probably require good accuracy,
and a modded BBB w/ the following mods:
Basic AR restriction
CPVC barrel replacement (exactly 7")
Increased air seals

Anyone have any tips to increase my accuracy for my BBB or any other gun for that matter? Thanks a lot and I really appreciate it.

Get rid of the CPVC barrel, or at least cut it down to 3" You won't gain any benefit from it being longer if your using stock darts. I would switch to a 1/2" PVC barrel, since that will fit your taggers.

If you cannot use stefans, then the extra 4ish. inches of barrel will hurt, not help. Cut the cpvc to three inches, sand it down, and slap on, lets say five inches of pvc.

This should help with range and accuracy. (you can use a cralola in place of cpvc)

*edit* Sam beat me to it, but leave a stub of craola-cpvc to grip the foam section of the dart.

is the BBB too powerful to have such a short barrel? What i mean is does the dart come out of the barrel wobbly or fluttering?
Another suggestion is maybe you guys can pick up a pack of streamlines, in which case you couls use the longer barrel. If not, do what they said.

Thanks a lot to everyone. I think I'll shorten it by a couple inches (I'm sure to get streamlines shortly) and add the stub of Crayola.

I would reccommend switching to streamline darts. they fit down your cpvc barrel and you will maintain most of the accuracy and range

Correct me if Im wrong(actually, I know Im right) but Streamlines are the most in-accurate darts you can get today. And I dont need to help you since you already have your answer, but since Im already posting I must as well say to do what others are suggesting.

A streamline with a decent amount of barrel length will be far more accurate than a tagger just stuck in the end of a barrel. Especially with a gun as powerful as the bbb, you end up with taggers and suction cup darts fishtailing off the end of a cpvc barrel. A streamline will actually stay fairly level throughout the flight, though they do veer slightly. This is still preferrable to the loss of range and accuracy caused by fishtailing darts.

I beg to differ. With my pump shotgun (more powerful than a BBB), I can hit my friend in the head with a tagger at 60'. With a streamline on the same shot, I hit the ground 15' in front of me.

What I do is hammar a small peice (2") of 1/2" CPVC into a Peice of 1/2" PVC. You can make the peice of PVC longer depending on the air output of your gun. With my singled shotgun, I use 6" of PVC and my Taggers work as well as stefans.

There's a limit to what you can get depending on what darts you use and the power of your gun. Just the power difference from my titan and my LS requires me to use different darts. My LS can use weighted SL's but they won't go as far as stock SL's, however, they are more accurate with weights. In my titan, I can't use anything other than stefans, snubs and weighted SL's. If I use normal SL's, they corkscrew as soon as they leave the barrel (and you can see how long that is on the "Reclaiming the Titan" thread) and require more pumps to get them even out of the barrel. If losing some distance is fine with you, weight your SL's or make some stefans.

If you want to know more about accuracy in darts, go here.

I'd pick just one or the other, not both. I'm a big advocate of 17/32" brass tubing if you have access to it. You might even be able to get away with using 1/2" brass without the dart fishtailing.

If you haven't cut off the barrel stub yet the 17/32" slides right in, and all you need to do is glue a 1/2" pvc coupler onto the base of the original barel stub.
