I had an Arrowstorm for years. It was my favorite gun untill micros came into play, and I sold it, quit nerf came back later and here I am. ANYWAY. I'm getting my hands on one and want to create the best possible barrel assembly for my needs. Firstly, the Arrowstorms rotation mechanism cannot take much more weight than it allready has. That rules out just sticking anything down the origional barrels. I know that I WILL have to cut the stock barrels down to about an inch and a half, maybe 2" to have something to work with and maintain barrel stability. Then there is WHICH MATERIAL TO USE. PETG is nice and light, and is a little tighter fitting than normal brass, but im not sure. I know that a NORMAL brass barrel would most likely be too spacious to be efficient in this heavy dutey spring gun. Nested barrels would work, but would require twisting to get the darts in. This would mean reloading would be a PAIN, and i dont want to risk the ROF over that. Kevin suggested that I maybe have, lets say, 4" of the smaller sized brass with 5" of the normal sized brass over it, So you can still twist it mostely in and still have some extra length for distance and accuracy. I sortoff tried this out on my BBB for spring gun testing purposes, and the dart still only twists in as far as your fingers can twist. Well, theres my delema, Ide like to have a decent barrel length, maybe 5-6" so the gun can have decent accuracy. I dont want the dart RIGHT at the tip of the barrel, but i may not have a choice.
What would all of YOU do if YOU were trying to make an Arrowstorm shoot Micro-Stefans as efficiently as possibly while maintaining RoF and accuracy? Input Needed!
P.S. turns out I can indeed cram a micro striaght with my finger an inch down normal brass into the smaller sized brass... but would having 4" of smaller brass and only one inch of normal create too much pressure on the dart/gun?
