I remember seeing paintball barrel inserts and it occurred to me that they could be useful for nerf. They come in multiple inner diameters as the linked page suggests: .679-.695 caliber. Has anyone tried fitting any fbr or other nerf darts into these? I doubt we could use these for nerf like they are used for paintball, but they may fit some darts well. I'm not really sure since I don't have any and I'm not willing to buy any without knowing if they'll work, but if anyone has a paintball barrel insert kit you should try it and report what you find. On the other hand brass tubing and petg are probably sufficient and definitely cheaper.

I searched the Modifications, Homemades, and General Nerf forums and couldn't find anything on the topic. If this topic exists in another thread please disregard this one.

The caliber is too far off from our darts. We use .5" diameter, used to use .625, which are still way too small.

I think that the paintball gun would be overpowered to use in a war and wouldn't you have to manually reload every shot? Why not just use paintballs? Correct me if I'm wrong though

Split: That's exactly what I wanted to know. Thanks.

Possemhunter: I definitely wasn't suggesting using a paintball gun, although I've seen it done and it's incredibly intimidating (loud, fast, and pretty accurate). The idea was to use the barrel insert on a homemade or other general nerf gun. You're right though, if you're using a paintball gun for nerf you might as well just play paintball.

Geniuses, the 1/2" measurements for plumbing aren't actually 1/2 inch. The best way to find out is to go to a paintball store, asking to see one, and using a few darts for a blowgun/drop test.

The smallest I've ever seen is .678 caliber. That's caliber people, not inches. It won't work. End of discussion.
