I was screwing around with my LB when i realized that it takes a good deal of air pressure to fire 5 darts simultaneously to ~30 ft. Since it's too big to be a backup, I decided to single barrel it, therefore getting all of that pressure in one shot. Piece of cake, right? Not at all. The piping to the barrels is glued on heavily, and I don't want to cut through the air tank to find out where the air is coming out from. Could anyone tell me where to cut? Pictures would help a great deal, but measurements work as well. And yes, I searched, NH and NHQ.

I haven't had my LB opened in awhile so I don't know if this would actually work, but you could try something like this. Get 5 Sch40 PVC elbow connectors, some vinyl that fits tightly inside the hole where the air comes out(the 5 white stub-like things), a Sch40 PVC endcap, a Sch40 PVC coupler, and some Sch40 PVC(any type of barrel you want to use can simply be stuck inside the PVC). Stick a piece of vinyl into each of the 5 white stubs and glue them in. Glue the 5 elbows to the stubs and have them pointing to the center. Also, run the vinyl through the elbows. Take your endcap and a short peice of PVC(1-1.5" in length), shove it into the endcap, and drill 5 holes around the endcap about the size of the OD of your vinyl. Glue your vinyl into the holes and glue the endcap between the elbows. Put your coupler on the end of your PVC and cut a barrel to use.

Edit: After reading over that I noticed that it's a little confusing and some of it is unnecessary(the elbows for instance). Just read it over a few times and hopefully you'll understand what I mean.

Ok, if you want to single barrel it, just take vinyl tubing, epoxy it to the 5 holes where air exits (the holes directly from the chambers, not the barrels), then route all the tubing into one piece of PVC. I did it, and I'm getting about 120'-130' flat, you could probably get more if you took more time to seal it, and used something better than hot glue (I didn't have any plumbers goop at the time! I swear!).

Thanks guys, you're awsome. I posted like... 1 1/2 hours before and I have 3 helpful replies. I love it.

Anyways. Ompa, 2 things. First, how long was your PVC barrel? Second, how did you secure the barrel in the case? There's gunna be a lot of extra room. Would it be possible to stick... say a crayola or longer piece of brass in there, then put the pvc over it?

It actually fits in the little nook between the 5 chambers. I just drilled a hole in the front (middle of the barrels) to secure it. I'll try to take a picture sometime tomorrow.
