Well, for one, PVC is more durable, and he used SCH 80 PVC, which probably fits his darts better.

It depends on your PETG. There are different sizes of PETG. There is no best barrel, it has to be what fits your darts. Nobody can tell you if there's a difference in performance between PVC and PETG because your milage is likely to vary.

ompas mod uses SCH80 PVC. To work with PETG you would have to use SCH40 PVC and coupler, and nest the PETG in the PVC. You wold only need a couple inches of PVC since it wouldn't be your main barrel.

Couplers make loading easier. Otherwise you have ot ram rod the dart from the tip down to the end of the barrel. A coupler makes it a breach load.

Plus they're no more than a $1, so there's no excuse not to get one (find 'em at Lowes or Home Depot).

Ok I completed a mod. It was quite easy, easier than a coupler and pvc. Take a foot long piece of petg, sand down the tube that the barrel screws onto. Than take duct tape and carefully wrap it wround a section of the petg(right where the petg is alligned with the edge of the titan barrel). Wrap the duct tape around enough so that the petg can fit inside the barrel but also secures petg in place. Now you can remove the petg and breech load it and you didnt even have to install a coupler and pvc!

I like Ompa's better.

- But at least you showed us some pictures. Also nice seeing people do their own mod.
