If you accidentally clock somebody with a doubleshot, then you're more liable to break the doubleshot than you are to cause serious injury.


PM me if selling a NIB or LNNB LnL.

More info?

We don't replace the plunger tubes in a modification. If you mean a homemade, use PVC or another type of plastic tubing.

Carbon used a 20mL syringe for a plunger tube in a homemade "gun" here.

Just measure the stock plunger tube and you have your answer. You'll have to order a plastic tube with a matching ID. For materials Nylon, Polyester, and Polycarbonate will all work fine, but polycarbonate is more likely to come in thinner wall sizes and can handle more abuse than Polyester.

For a springer you don't want a perfect seal on the plunger head because that would offer way too much friction.

To el swifto:

I know about Kbarker's Nitefinder Rifle. I've seen it about 10 times already. I was just looking for plunger tubes for a homemade gun.

To CaptainSlug:

A polycarbonate tube? Where do I get that?

Plastics shops, online plastics suppliers, or industrial suppliers like http://www.mcmaster.com

What tube should I use for a plunger tube? I'm planning on using a NF plunger size.

If you're looking for a common PVC combination in that rough size, 1" thinwall PVC for the tube and .5" PVC endcaps for the plunger have been used many times.

Spend some time reading the homemade section. You won't find anything new in this thread that you couldn't find already posted.
