Two: From what I understand from your post is this: You want to make a faux clip out of PVC to slide over the PETG barrels for a quick load/reload? Am I getting this right?

It's not like that. I put lube on it and its the same. Its just stuck. And when I cock it back it goes farther back then usual. Also I push as hard as I can and it wont go back in. I've tried the methods and they wont work. Also pics are up.

I think something closer to Humpty Dumpty would work better (see the Captain's second and third picture-ful posts in that thread). Ignore the flip-breech qualities, though.
I figure one would cut out the barrels (a la the CPVC'd magstrike mod), then put put in brass "stubs" that are one size smaller or larger than your barrel material.
Next, to put barrels on those. Brass would be "best" to go with the brass stubs, but other materials could be made to work; Maybe even PETG with brass inserts (or coverings) that are less than an inch long. I think that that would keep the weight low enough; after all, Angel put full-length brass barels on his.
The most difficult part would be the (fairly) precise machining required to make something that will hold the barrels together correctly (again, see the Humpty Dumpty). Or, I guess, you may be able to just glue them together...
And in expectation of someone like Splitlip asking: If anyone wants to try this "solution," go ahead (and just give me a little credit and Loki credit for the original -- if vague -- idea). I may get around to it eventually, or I might not.
Edit: I just wanted to make it clear that I think this is a pretty interesting and good idea, Loki. A Magstike clip is nearly impossible to make from scratch due to the nature of the advancement mechanism. This, however, would allow several inserts that would allow a reload time of seconds. Of course, this is what is provided by extra clips; however, one would not have to find someone willing to sell full clips or buy a whole MS just for the clip(s) in order to get more reloads. I would still suggest two clips though, because changing clips would probably be faster than changing inserts and so would be better for those emergency situations.
Edit 2: For those who want to go the speed loader route, you could try something like this. Either make two 5-dart speedloaders, or one that is able to reload all ten. I think the speedloaders would take up more space than clip-inserts, thugh.
