Ok, my BBB came in the mail today. I opened it up and saw how much it sucks with the arrows so I put a cpvc barrel onto it to make it shoots darts. It works perfectly fine. The only thing is I'm only getting about 65' flat. My barrel length is 5 1/2 inches. I used 9 1/2 inches and it was horrible. So I dropped down to 5 1/2 and it works better. I just wanted to know the optimum barrel length for the BBB. Because I feel like my gun isn't shooting with full force. Thanks in advance.

Few questions.

1)what kind of darts?

2) have you done an AR removal?

I think that for 1/2 cpvc it's 7-8 inches.

1) I'm shooting taggers. But I also tried with micro stefans and they only shot about 5 feet further than the taggers.

2) Yes I have done AR removal.

Ok. Because before I used 9 1/2 and it was sucking ass.

Thanks for the answer.

Are your darts being pushed all the way to the back of the barrel (nearer to the gun)? Or are your darts on the tip of the barrel? If they are on the tip then longer barrels wouldn't help anything. In the darts go to the back of the barrel then you should get more accuracy and power. Also is CPVC really tight on you darts? If they are tight then it could be to tight for your BBB, you should try a different barrel setup.

Edit~ Oops, I forgot there is a write-up somewhere on NHQ for a couplered BBB with CPVC, try that.

2nd Edit~ I guess I wanted to be nice today so here is your link. *click*

Thanks alot that helped a bunch. And I have a removable barrel so I put my darts in the back. My darts are a perfect snug fit for my barrel. I now get ranges up to 80' flat with this. Thanks for all the help everyone. NOW I JUST NEED TO PAINT IT.

It looks okay. I think the blue kills it though. So If I were to paint it that color I would paint the blue parts black. I think I am going to go with camo colors. Not camo but just the colors. I will post pics in a few weeks after I paint it.
