Barrel Material Question

As a note, copper as a barrel material has been discussed. Search around.

The one complaint that most experienced Nerfers have about copper is the weight. Copper is naturally heavy and if you have more than one barrel, you have compromise in two different ways;
1) If you have a turret, the turret sometimes has difficulty rotating (auto-rotating turrets like AirTech 3000s), or it has a propensity to go crooked on you (manual rotate turrets like AT2ks).
2) If you adapt a coupler to your blaster (single barreled weapons), the weight could dislodge the barrel when running, jumping, etc.
But if it works for you, no complaints from this side. I personally tried brand-new copper pipe, and found stefan performance to be sub-par. More modders are going with plastics (PETG, CPVC, PVC) nowadays, or are sheathing their brass barrels in plastic (to minimize damage or bending).
Bottom line, if it works for you, it works. Won't make much for forum conversation, for the above reasons.
EDIT: What Carbon said. I type slowly.
This isn't a flame... But a modded Titan with any barrel is quite powerful. Enjoy.

If you want brass, check out your local hobby shop, or online. A common brand of brass is "K&S."
But, like others said, it's up to you to find what barrel material fits your darts and your modification.
