Not that loosely.
fits 1/2" fbr loosely. With that said, should I use 1/2" SCH 40 PVC, or 19/32" K&S Brass?
You want the smallest barrel that will allow the dart to slide through with very little resistance. For me that's either SCH 80 or 9/16" brass. Incidentally, I've switched all three of my EABs to the latter.

If 9/16" gives you a tight fit with stefans, maybe you have Steelworks brand brass? They apparently label by ID so that would be approximately just over 1/2", a good seal for spring pistols or nested brass. Move up to 19/32" if you use Steelworks, that may help you out. Good luck.

Steelworks labels by OD, same as K&S. The difference is that Steelworks uses a 1/32" wall thickness instead of the 1/64" K&S uses. So 9/16" Steelworks is actually 1/2" ID (9/16 - 1/32 - 1/32 = 1/2) whereas 9/16" K&S is 17/32" ID.
If 9/16" gives you a tight fit with stefans, maybe you have Steelworks brand brass? They apparently label by ID so that would be approximately just over 1/2"
Having Steelworks brass could very well be causing the tightness. That or simply having slightly oversized FBR.
Airsoft999: You should use either 19/32" brass or SCH80 depending on which provides the closest fit that will still allow the dart to drop through on its own.

I did cxwq's mod, except I used a 14" length of 1/2" SCH80 PVC (riser), and a threaded 1/2" PVC coupler instead of his SM5k piece. Otherwise the barrel is mounted the same way as cx's mod.
Because this EaB was in bad shape (case cracked, catch mechanism pieces were weakened by age/ abuse), I left the stock spring in, just lubed up the plunger, and used a Sharpshooter II plunger rod to replace the broken EaB rod (fit right in). I epoxied the case as best I could and painted it.
The darts fit in slightly loosely, and pulling the plunger back draws the dart all the way back.
It shoots about 55-60 feet level, and I recently shot someone from about 100 feet, angled about 15 degrees. More importantly, though, is how consistently accurate it is compared to the other blasters we have.
Not bad for a gun that my nephew was going to throw away.

do it prior to adding the weight. the hot glue might melt in the dryer.
