I've been a somewhat serious nerf modifier for about a year now and my modded weaponry never seems to work as well as it should. Although this could have something to do with my modding skills (or lack there of) it actually seems to be with the barrel replacements I use. Unfortunately, I have needed to use copper barrels for all of my replacements because all of the 1/2 inch PVC in the Lowes and Home Depots in my area are to small to hold a dart. Do I need to do something to the dart/PVC to make it work? Or do I need to find another kind of PVC (I was thinking thin walled but there seems to be no such thing)? All help is welcome. Thank you in advance!

1/2 PVC will be loose on micros, and fit megas perfectly. If it is too small, I think you are using CPVC, which is very tight on micros. With this, you can take a 1/2 inch drill bit and bore out the CPVC so it fits your darts better. Copper is useless, buy brass instead, it is worth the extra money.

Why not get yerself some Petg from OMC and nest it in your 1/2"pvc? That makes a beautifull barrel for stefans.
You can do the same thing with 9/16th" thinwall that can be found in Pet fish stores. Its like the stuff used for the filter tubes.

Forgive my spelling and grammar. I post from my cell phone a lot. Sometimes when I'm on the can at work.

I use 1/2in CPVC for all of my barrels. I use 1/2in FBR to make my darts with, and they fit in the CPVC. The fit is very tight, and it is hard to load if you have a CPVC breech.

If .5" schedule 40 PVC is too small for your darts, stretch your foam. Its on the first page of the dart making thread.
