I don't know if you will be able to keep the orange part, but I don't see why petg wouldn't work.

Most commonly used barrels (cpvc, brass, petg, etc.) will easily fit in the orange barrel as long as the AR is removed and some e-taped is wrapped around your barrel for a snug fit in the orange one. So yes, your petg would work.

By thin and thick, do you mean OMC's medium and thick walled, respectively?

Medium is rather loose unless you have huge stefans, so just go with thick walled.

How about you don't suggest it unless you've actually used it with the suggested set-up or at the very least have used PETG.

PETG and stock darts WILL NOT work well at all for a springer. For an airgun, maybe, as long as you don't mind you're dart falling out the barrel. If you're using stock darts, use something that has a tighter fit like 17/32 brass and nest that in about 6 or 7 inches of PVC so the dart can still accelerate once the foam body leaves the brass (the head makes a seal with the PVC).

Like flyingchicken said, Just wrap a few layers of E-tape close to the bottom of the barrel. That's what I'm using and it works great. Just don't secure it to the orange barrel, that way you don't have to ramrod your darts every reload. What a time killer.


Edit: Woohoo! 50th post!

Wouldn't you need a tighter seal to prevent the PETG from flying out with the dart?

Just use enough E-tape to get a nice, snug fit. I've never had a problem. I'm also just using a stock spring so....

With my BBB, I straightened a paperclip and then bent it into a squared U shape so that the sides match up with the outside of the barrel.

I then wrapped it with e-tape to get a seal with the orange barrel and stuffed it through the back, so when the gun is put together and I pull the barrel out, it gets a tight, almost irremovable seal. This way I can vacuum load darts and I don't have to worry about a ramrod or my barrel falling off, because the paperclip won't physically permit it to be removed unless I dismantle the gun.

Stock darts are just a bit loose in my petg, which I bought from OMC before he had two sizes. Of course the heads don't fit into the barrel, so the only ones that are really of any use are streamlines, but sometimes they stop half way down the barrel. I think the air is making them sort of balloon out and it causes too much friction. Stefans still work the best.

Another idea is to get sch 80 pvc and nest the petg inside then add a coupler. This is for faster realoding and it would be easier.

Awesome, i have been reading some of the ideas, and i came up with an idea. Would diamondback's petg breechs fit good with the bbb orange barrel and the stock dart wouldn't slide out? I have a barrel (17/32 brass inside of SCH 80 pvc) would this work good?

Are you looking to fit the bodies or heads of the stock darts?

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

I got my bbb working now. I found one of my old PETG barrels. covered it with PVC. i finally have have a good primary. sorry diamondback, i don't need your breech anymore. I tested the range on it. (stock red BBB spring and streamline dart) i got somewhere between 50-60 feet. didn't fully/correctly measure, but it got somewhere between there.

It has come to my attention, zombiegaara, that you are only 12 years old. It was not a surprise. I do, however, blame myself for not reallizing this earlier. Fortunately for me, I was older than the prerequisite 13 when making this discovery. You were not so fortunate.

I believe you'll be 13 in may, but, honestly....how can I be sure? I'm just gonna round it up a bit. Later.
