I recently got my hands on a crossbow, and i'm not sure which to use for a barrel. Brass, CPVC, or PETG? If anyone thinks they know what's better to use please post. Thanks!

In that case, I would use 17/32 brass. I find it fits taggers very well.

It's just screaming to be rearloading...

I seen a movie about that once.

Okay, thats what i've been using. Just wanted to know if there was any better barrel. Also i'm trying to figure out how to make the spring better. I mean there has to be more then just the barrel.

cpvc also fits stock darts nicely.

As for the spring, I have heard that a Defender T3 arrow shooter spring works wonders on Xbows, though you have to reinforce the spring rests.

I would suggest THIS as far as enforcing the gun and modifications.

Well, I actually happen to have a dt3 arrow shooter, and I never use it. But what else would I have to do, just put it in?

I have a suggestion for a spring. With this setup I get at LOWEST 80 feet(with horrible darts), but usually at least 115-145 feet. Anyways, get two BBB springs. Cut one down about 4 or 5 loops on one side. Put them together and on the plunger so it looks like this(not to scale):

-||-|\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\||\/\/\/\/\/\-|----(|
head uncut spring cut spring ^ handle
catch

Or, so the uncut spring is on top, and the uncut end of the cut spring is pressing against the uncut spring, and the cut end of the cut spring is the farthest end away from the head. :wacko: THAT was confusing...
Oh and also, if you are going to do this spring setup, COMPLETELY reinforce your crossbow. Otherwise it will likely break.
