Well I was looking for a store that sold PETG I know pet stores do but they are really expensive. Then I found this store called tap plastic. So I went to a store near me and found polycarbonate tube it works very well with my stefans and the stock darts are a bit loose. I now use it as one of my barrel materials.Tell me if you guys might be interested. :D

You should edit the links out and start a business with this stuff. Sell it for 25 cents a foot. (I'm joking OMC)

Almost all of the stores are in California. Unfortunate for those of us that are east coasters. :D

What/who's foam do you use? Also is it PETG? It looks just like it in the picture

Is it fear or courage that compels you?

I use lowes foam and its way to thick to be PETG.

Do you have a digital caliper? If so, please make some very precise measurements and post them. Please list the inner diameter and the outer diameter.

It's acrylic, and I use it for many of my guns. It is the exact same thing as clear CPVC, and is about the same price for 6 feet instead of 10 for CPVC. It fits in couplers and the next size up can be used to turn it into a breach. The only downside is that it's extremely brittle and will shatter if you drop it.

if you have to ask mommy, you have no business trying to start one. sure taps is mostly on west coast. but www.tapsplastics.com is just as easy for anyone else to go to anfd order from without getting jacked by you being the middle man.

Forgive my spelling and grammar. I post from my cell phone a lot. Sometimes when I'm on the can at work.

Actually its not exactly the same it fits my darts a bit tighter than in my cpvc.

That and none of the Polycarbonate tubing that they list on the website has an ID that is compatible with micro size darts.
