I first made this around 2-3 months ago. But discussed it with a clanmate whothen sent me pictures of his exact same clip that he made back in July. Great minds think alike, eh? But, I'll put it in the R-clip line anyway. This clip works the same as the original R-clip and could also be converted to "Bolt Action" but cutting a slot for a bolt attatched to the brass which moved forward then back to make the seal.
(The DS was merely used to hold the clip up for the picture, it's not attatched to the clip in anyway.)
The magazine does not need to be completly vertical, I use it tilted to the side to provide a clear line of sight down the barrel

Yeah, I thought alot about using a spring inside the 1/2 PVC. I believe that it is possible and would encourage others to accept the challenge to build one. I've already finished the magazine of the R-Clip v3, so I have some time before I stumble upon a new magazine for a 4th R-Clip. I'm also working on a magazine using a coil spring, which is basicaly a very mini FAR magazine, minus the shells. It'd be very handy having small spring fed PVC tubes to reload. Wouldn't take up much space, and easy to holster on a belt/gun.Perhaps taking a long this airsoft-like spring and stretching it to fit the PVC? The hard part like you said is finding the right spring.
If a long coil spring were used with the right follower, those PVC mags could be placed under the barrel to allow for a standard placement of magazines. The problem here for anyone but someone who works at a spring steel store or me is finding a spring. An exnonential spring would work great, that way it would have enough pressure when fully compressed to feed the first few darts then get weaker as each dart is fed, removing the possibility of "squished dart syndrome."

How much would this be affected by, say, threaded Y with an adapter (1" thread to 1/2" slip, yes they do make 'em)? That would increase the distance between the end of the mag and the bottom of the barrel by about an inch, maybe a little more or less. The new opening would be about an inch in diameter, so there would be a 1"x1" cylinder of space between the mag and barrel. Would that keep me from having to modify the Y-fitting?

To the below post:
You have a picture in your clip write-up that shows 22(maybe .22 or something, it's a little fuzzy) gauge wire. So, I may try that. I'm not sure what gauge wire I used, so can't compare until I get some of "your" wire.

What do you think about having the copper pipe about 3/5 cut open for back 2 inches or so so the stefans drop onto the 2/5 of the copper pipe and you don't have to worry about the pipe sliding under the stefan. Use something like a bolt system to keep the copper pipe oriented the right direction. Sliding over the stefan shouldn't be as hard since the top of the stefan is in contact with an angled stefan instead of a pipe which meshes with it.
Clip max length wouldn't be so bad if it ran parallel with the max length of the gun.
What about air pressure loaded?
