I can't find PETG for cheap and the spacers will take too long to arrive, will the rear loading mod work with the crayola barrels I currently have? I don't see why it wouldn't work

It sounds like there would be no harm in just *doing* it and then seeing what happens.

I kind of feel like crayola barrels are so short you can just front load them, and use your pinky to shove the darts to the back of the barrel if needed (and you probably won't even have to do that  if using full length darts like elites). Why bother with rear loading?

 

For PETG, did you check with Draconis? http://nerfhaven.com...al/#entry359134

 

You could also use 9/16" brass tubing. It will be more expensive than PETG, but you may be able to find it at your local hobby shop. The wall thickness you want is 0.014inches

 

You don't need a fancy spacer. You can make one out of the original barrels (assuming you still have them/didn't destroy them): http://nerfhaven.com/mods/cxwq_at3000/

I did destroy the original barrels for THIS 3k but I thankfully have another turret from another 3k that should have enough barrel left. I'll try and find PETG first before I buy from Draconis because my mom probably won't let me buy PETG from someone else here due to how cautious she is about buying from others on forums.

Crayola barrels were popular because they get a little tighter towards the back of the barrel. Before you get too crazy you may want to make sure your darts will pass through the entirety of the barrel. If needs be you might be able to drill that restriction out since pump powered blasters tend to perform better with looser fitting barrels.

May also work.

 

Pros: It's a legit online store, so your parents may be happier buying from them

Cons: They only ship rush, and it's 4ft long so shipping will probably cost a good bit. Also they don't tell you how much shipping is until it shows up on your credit card.
