For most people if they push they're darts all the way down a CPVC barrel provides to much friction, you probably won't gain 10 feet from a 2 inch dart pressed down a 4 inch CPVC barrel. Chances are you'll lose 2 or 3 than with a dart blown back in brass or if the dart was just in the end of the CPVC.

Do you guys ram or blow you darts in your barrel? I get another dart and push the dart in on longer barrels I make a 3'' Stefan and use that to push darts into the barrel.

So what exactly is the best barrel to use for the NF?

Actually, you jsut have to find out which size cpvc is the best. For spring pistols, dont go over 6 inches. Depending on the power of the gun, and the type(air,spring...) you change the barrel length.

you probably won't gain 10 feet from a 2 inch dart pressed down a 4 inch CPVC barrel. Chances are you'll lose 2 or 3 than with a dart blown back in brass or if the dart was just in the end of the CPVC.


I had a 4 inch barrel on my tt, I gained 10 feet by rammming, and greatly reduced the velocity and accuracy of the dart.

Once, my brother just rammed a 7 inch cpvc barrel into his tt, with air restrictor in, no mods, shot, and he got the same ranges of a brass mod. Strange, how it was completely unmodded. Now imagine a 7 inch cpvc breech loader in a modded TTG...

Two questions:
1. How did you connect your CPVC barrel to the plunger tube?
2. How did you connect the (original) orange piece to the plunger shaft?

I'm hesitating to mod mine because of the second question. It seems to me that if you don't secure the end piece that converts from the shaft to the chamber when the plunger fires it will push the barrel forward, and A) the barrel will no longer be straight, or B) the barrel will seperate from the shaft entirely.

Perhaps this isn't an issue, but I think it is and I'm interested to see how you remedied the situation.

To attach cpvc, Im guessing you drill out the hole in the air restrictor and make it larger, and glue your pvc in there, and mod it normally by drilling out a hole in the center of the plunger cap.

I glued the plunger cap and air restricor to the plunger tube if that answers your question...

No.. Just no. I really don't think your right. That simply makes no sense.

Ok, well that does make more sense, but I still believe it to be untrue (regarding most all of your post, but most notably the thing with your brother and the 7 in. CPVC barrel). The only plausible way that I can think of as to what your saying could be true is this. Your foam fits perfectly into CPVC and it's very loose in brass. Or your brother must have had some insane amount of rubber bands and a very strong new spring added to the TTG. Even in both cases 7 inches is too long for the TTG, I'll give you it's a very powerful gun. But it has a small plunger tube. And if a darts has to travel through 7 inches of barrel that's as tight as CPVC is on most darts then it would have started to slow down in speed by the time it reaches the end of the barrel. Hell I'm surprised the dart left your brothers barrel. So now I ask you this, are you lying, mistaking, or just ignorant?

[quote name='THIRST' date='Feb 2 2004, 12:19 PM'] [QUOTE]Since cpvc is a very tight fit, it works mucht the same way, except without getting bigegr, which is whyit is also a very good choice on guns such as a TTG or an NF. [/quote]
Oh, see that confused me. ^_^

Well, its kinda strange, Ive got many places to egt my fbr from, and when Im near one of the places, I jsut stop in, and pick up some parts if im in need. Each store carries the same brand fbr, but each stores 1/2 fbr is all slightly different, for example:

My home depot has very fbr.
My localhardware store has very thick fbr.
And then theres another hardware store that carries medium...

So really, It depends on the darts you use. Ivenever tried the thick kind, only the medium and small. Small gave best results btw.
