Ideal Barrel Length
Posted 09 June 2009 - 01:17 AM
Current Barrel: 3in of 17/32 brass
Possible Replacement: 1/2" CPVC (stefans and stock darts are tight in it)
Spring: FULL Handyman #49
Other mods: Catch spring replaced, frame reinforced, plunger reinforced, plunger head reinforced, seal improved, relubed, ar's removed (given). (I think that's all of them)
If anyone has anything constructive to add, please post, if not please move on. I take enough crap on the boards and I don't really need others adding to it.

This bears repeating, and it's why I called Bolt's formula a guideline: use it to give you a starting point, but it's by no means the absolute answer. Trying out a bunch of barrels is great, but can get expensive with certain barrel materials (i.e. brass).
Empirical testing works a lot better than formulas. Cut up a bunch of different lengths and try them out. I personally use 4" of CPVC on my NF.
