I was wondering if anyone had ever tried this before, and if so then I`d like to show my version of it. I`m not sure how to post pictures (noob) but I would like to know how many (if any) people would like a write up for it before I go spend hours of my time on one.

From what I can see so far, this is a great setup. The only problem I can think of is if older darts get caught on the thick walled breech, causing jams. Otherwise, I'll have to try this myself. Well done.

Thanks,
The older darts tend to work better for me, since the cpvc i use has a very tight fit on them. This is the first model though, once i find myself some magic pvc i will make it more air tight, but i still have yet to come upon it.

Since you're in the US, brass tubing is an option for you. In Australia I've yet to find any at a reasonable price, but I understand McMaster Carr online has some great deals. A little bit of 'Haven searching will find you the correct sizes for a perfect seal. "Magic PVC" might just be the "clear" type, but you'd have to check with a vernier or other fine measuring tool to make sure the I.D. and O.D. are right. Clear PVC has significantly different dimensions to regular or CPVC.

cpvc longshots. They are pretty fun to make. Sodizzle made one a long while back and I had done some work on what he had done.

Wow, I wish I had found that before I made mine. I made mine to be able to fire elites and for that it works well. Mine has a terrible seal from pipe to pipe but it still hits great ranges

As long as it works, it's a good build. The elites might help plug the seal, so to speak. If you're able to, try a different method to seal the two pipes if you want to tinker with it. But either way, good job.

While using stefan clips would ensure an airtight seal, the purpose for mine was to make on that could shoot elites or streamlines. It does have a bad seal but it still hits great ranges.
