Judging by your grammar, you're just going to remove the restrictors. CPVC would be a better bet, and anywhere between 6-8 inches of it would be good. Heavily modded BBBs can get up to a foot or 13" barrels, and they're better in PETG.

According to your mom, size matters. My blaster is four feet long. What about yours?

It depends on your dart fit. Generally, a tight fit is best for springers.

You should use copper.

Sorry, couldnt help myself.
But seriously, I've had a bbb with both. I think cpvc works well, the length would depend on your dart fit.

I second that. Copper is easy to find, and works amazingly well.

Well, do you own any of those barrel materials? If you do, test fit the darts you will be using, and see which fits the best. For springers, you want it tight, but not too tight. Just right, so you can slide it in with very minimal twisting. Thick walled PETG has generally the same fit has 9/16 brass. If your darts are too loose in those, try 17/32 brass or CPVC, which are roughly the same as well. Hope I have helped, and try to fix your spelling/grammar.

What the hell? No, you should not use copper. What is wrong with you two? I think we need to begin deleting content when it's either blatant trolling, or absolutely terrible advice. "Yeah, totally use this pop bottle to store air pressure!" Gah!

Most people don't use anything near that thick, so I am curious as to what you are up to? I'd offer to sell you some, but alas... I used all that I had when I upgraded the bullet proof glass on my pope-mobile.

Well, your grammar did not improve in this post. Refrain from usin sry instead of sorry, and make your "i"s capital, and if you don't you will be out of here soon. Yes, copper is way to loose for micros, and is a great material for RSCB clips. I do not know what they were thinking when they suggested it for a barrel material.

If this entire topic were to spontaneously combust, killing all of its contributors in a righteous conflagration, we would be fortunate.

MODcrazy, being sorry doesn't really do anything for me. If you can't master basic punctuation and capitalization, you can't post here. That's it.

For everyone giving intentionally bad advice and anyone posting just to say "added that hilarious quote to my signature, while playing with my butthole", please fuck off.

Thank you!
