So i was wondering if anyone knows any good barreling material for mega darts? I have taken it upon myself to make a version of captian slug's clip fed homemade that can run megas. Help woth a loose barrel material and maybe a tight feed-able one too?

Pvc, cpvc, and brass are all i can get right now.

I did some looking and you could try 3/4 cpvc or 3/4 sch80 pvc but other then that I wouldn't know.

Ive already used the cpvc for simple 1/2inch to 3/4inch converters, but it is a twist fit. A very, very tight twist fit.

You could sand down the inside a bit but I don't think it would be worth it.

MEGA darts are 3/4" (19mm) OD, and most 3/4" CPVC I have tried has an ID of about 18mm.  3/4" SCH80 PVC will often time have an okay-ish loose fit.  The malformed PVC I used for rocket barrels actually fits MEGAs very well.  If you want one, I'd sell it to you.  Additionally, I have found aluminum tubing at True Value Hardware which fit well, but it was expensive.

Shout out to DartSlinger, this barrel material is the perfect size for MEGA's in an air blaster.

Still not sure what the best springer fit is, tho.

well i'd think a package from oregon to maine would be pricy, the darts may fit differently, and also, im young, so i have to ask before each purchase of anything.

Nah, a barrel tube less than a foot long would be a few dollars to ship via first class mail.  And stock Hasbro darts are pretty much universal fit.

I would strongly recommend using some 25mm heavy duty electrical conduit.
I live in perth, western australia, where it's not to humid most of the time and it seems to have an ideal fit for megas.
