Okay, I have a question about brass, it may sound confusing, but i'll explain it as best as I can. I buy my brass at ACE Hardware, that is the only store near me thats sells it. They sell all of their brass in 12 inch segments, could I buy two segments of 9/16 brass, then use one 4 or so inch segment of the very next size up to connect them? I would slide the larger piece half way over one piece, half over the other, then glue the piece on. Would this work? Has anybody tried this?

Instructions to do so are located here, courtesy of Cx and his BAMF mod.

Although here's an alternate solution; if you have an ACE hardware around you, check there. My ACE sells 36" segments of brass. If you have an ACE, it might as well.

And don't sweat it, I've probably read everything on this site at least 20 times. That's how I know where it is. That includes the FAQ. Well, ok, maybe only 10 times for the code of conduct.

Most homemade weapons, or weapons like the Titan, or a souped-up SM5k.

ah. would 12" of brass nested into 14"+ of PVC be as effective? the dart has more than 12" of guided flight, with a low-friction segment at the end.

I use 19/32nds to achieve the same thing on my SM5k. I made the 6" segment removable, and I also ported it. It looks like a silencer, but it's really just 1/32 wider than the 9/16ths barrel, giving the dart 5" of frictionless, yet guided flight.

It works nicely.

do you find that the porting does anything to muffle the noise?

It lowers the sound of the air "pop" and rush as it exits the barrel, but alas, it decreases range by atleast 8'. Not that big of a drop, but you can notice the velocity lacks.

Yes, I am using the barrel for my titan. Man I love that thing. I just finshed all of the mod, including the brass, ( it can breech load now) now it can shoot 182' with a 1/4 steel shot weighted stefan. Thanks for all the help!
