Okay, so I was digging around in my junk drawer, and I found this piece from a broken Magstrike.

I decided to see if it would fit in a coupler, and the only coupler I had on hand was in my SNAPbow.

There is a black rubber-like foam piece on the head of the Magstrike piece, you're going to want to get a razor, and pry-cut it off. The following picture is what it should look like after the step stated above.

You're then going to want to cut your size brass. This is the second time i've done it, the first was a failure, but I did find out that when use McMaster foam, with a SNAPbow, you should be using 9/16th brass. I wouldn't try using PETG, because the brass is the only thing thin enough to get air from each output in each specific barrel. After cutting the brass, glue it on, and this is what it should look like.

Here it is again, on the SNAPbow.

In my opinion this is totally worth doing. The SNAPbow with a 10 inch CPVC barrel nested in PVC, hits 120-130FT. With this double brass barrel, the first shot was with both barrels a little above 70FT. Ramrodded, I hit around 80.

Questions? Comments?

Plus, the regular cocking slide (Can't sig me now bitches! ) is much faster.

Yeah, it was more of an experiment gone good. I've been wanting to try it for a while, but never had enough boredom until now.

Nice man, innovative, easy, and effective. And I thought it was good when you were describing it...it's even better than I thought, nice results.

And I believe, correct me if I'm wrong, that it's a 1/2" PVC couper.

Hey...I got a crazy idea: how about you stop all that sigging stuff? It's not even my thread and it annoys me.

Nice mod, although I hate ramrodding with a passion.

I'm wondering if there would be enough space there to slip 19/32 over the 9/16. If so, you might be able to breech both those barrels.

Yes, you can. 17/32nd slides right in. Just make sure when cutting, if using pipe cutters, do it slowly, and slowly turn the knob tightening the wheel. If you don't it will bend the end of the barrel in, causing a tightening ring, which will prevent you from breeching it.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that I only uses 9/16 because it fits McMaster foam the best. You can use whatever size brass you want, and even thin-walled PETG if you are careful enough.

DOUBLE EDIT: Imperious, diamondback was correct, it's a 1/2in PVC coupler.

Remember to plug that hole on the top of the magstrike thingy!

Look at the speedloaders, I currently don't have enough CPVC on me to make one for my titan, so now it's just a stubby barrel thingy.
I also cut it a little to decrease dead space.
Thanks for the idea of having a good "double barrel" attachment, 'cause my other one sucks.

I nested CPVC in PVC with time, effort, and alot of sanding/shaving down. You can probably just buy thin-wall PVC and the CPVC would most likely fit right in that.

If you happen to have a drill press and some spade bits, you can drill out 1/2" PVC with a 5/8" bit, and the CPVC will fit like a dream.
