I am wondering which one works best for pisotls, automatics, BBBs, and longshots. I'm looking at these guns specifically: RF 20, Magstrike, NF, longshot, and a BBB. Also, which ones are the most durable? I have heard of crayola, brass, PVC, CPVC, and PEX. What is the big difference between CPVC and PVC?

Brass is nice because it comes in 1/32" increments.
Only use crayola if you really want to. CPVC is way cheaper. Brass is a little more but I think it works better.
CPVC or PVC are the most durable.
Conclusion: Use whatever fits your darts best.
...and ideas are bulletproof. "

The two reasons I don't use brass are: I can't find it anywhere and its expensive. I can buy 10' of cpvc for the price of one foot of brass.
The difference between cpvc and pvc is the size. 1/2" pvc is really 5/8" inner diameter and 1/2" cpvc is 1/2" inner diameter. Also they have different uses in plumbing.
Bigger than rugby
Bigger than snowboarding
Bigger than surfing.......Paintball

Hmm... That's unusual. How did your dart fit in the 9/32'' brass? It might have been that your darts are too loose or too tight. If that's true just switch to a different size. How was your seal batween the barrel and the plunger? You said that you rebarreled it three times. Maybe the brass barrel had a bad seal. Anyway, if you decide to keep the CPVC barrel congrats on finding the right barrel materialfor your darts.
Shadow, I just tried the 3 step nesting thing, with the exact sizes you posted, and got worse range than my simply cpvc barreled BBB. It seems the cpvc modded BBB got about 10 feet more than the 3 step nested BBB.

I think it's the clear tubing with grey cross-links stuff I saw at Home Depot. It isn't hard and can be bent like vinyl tubing.
Cross-linked polyethylene. PEX tubing is commonly used for hydronic radiant floor heat, but increasingly also used for water supply lines. Stronger than PE.

And I tend to use PVC or CPVC, cause it's durable and cheap.
