...and seeing little increase in range. about 30 feet, and im not interested in shooting people's toes. the barrel is a 3" long 3/8" brass nipple (thats what lowes called it, id call it a threaded pipe) screwed into the stump of the LnL's original barrel--a surprisingly tight and sturdy fit--and sealed with hot glue in the threads. ive checked for air leaks--the piston can't even make it to the end of the tube with the muzzle corked. my stefans are 2" long 1/2" FBR, cored out with a straw, with 1/2 a BB fishing weight hotglued to the tip.

There's your problem.

Go to a hobby shop. Ask for 9/16 brass. And get some real nipples.

Yea, get yourself some propor fitting brass and your set. Also, why half a fishing weight? Use a whole 3/0 weight.

There's nothing wrong with your darts, though half a BB split shot is a little on the small side. A full 3/0 is definitely on the large side for a spring pistol. I'd go with either a full BB (split shot) or a 1/4" steel shot.

The main problem is that you either need a short, tight barrel or a slightly longer nested brass barrel.

Optimal would be about 1/2" of brass that you have to twist your dart into, followed by 3.5-4" of brass that fits nicely.

Slightly less than optimal would be about 3.5" of snug (but not so tight that you can't blow a dart through it) pipe. Material is immaterial.

why is the 1/2"/3" design better? this is the smae design nerf uses on most of their dart guns...whats the advantage or duplicating nerf's existing design in brass/PVC/PETG?
