Im in the middle of integrating my secondary gun from my longshot to the main gun and the question of what should i do with the barrel? came in my head. So i was wondering which barrel should i use? Should i just leave it with the standard barrel which shoots farther but not nesessarely as accurate?

Or should i take the barrel from the secondary gun which is more accurate but decreases range.

I have removed the AR and added another spring. Im new to modding Nerf guns so i just want some opinions from those who are more experienced. Im bad at making decisions ^_^

Stick with the original barrel until you have enough experience to to an Angel breech. The longer barrel will kill both accuracy and range. Without a brass replacement, you probably won't be getting great ranges or accuracy anyway (I'd imagine in the ballpark of 55-65' or so depending on the spring), but the front gun thing won't help at ALL.

Agreed. See how loose darts are in that barrel? Yeah, it does nothing.

i didnt care for the bipod and the secondary gun looked like crap so i just wanted to put in with the main gun. The main gun shoots around 90 ft and the secondary gun shoots like 40 ft. But ye i think ill just keep it with the main barrel i guess.

Wait, 90ft flat? What kind of spring did you add to your LS? I can't imagine a non-Angel Breech LS getting that much range...and I second .Z4's suggestion.

I believe that those ranges have to be angled rather steeply. I can't see a non-Angel (or any other decent-great breech)modded Longshot getting 90' flat without breaking after about 6 shots. A spring that could get those ranges without any other mods (AR excluded) is most likely going to break it.
