I'm not going to full-on bash this just yet, but I do have to point something out.
By adapting it to your dart length and OD it will be unjammable.
You do realize that that is very close to being impossible, right?
Dart length always varies. Even if you cut them mechanically (how?) they will still vary. Foam stretches and compresses depending on many factors, such as: where they are stored, what temp. they are stored at, what they are stored in, how they are used/handled, etc.
Also, what nerfer does not pick up other nerfers' darts and use them? (at least for the purpose of firing them back)
You may fire 1.5" darts, I may fire 1.75" darts, somebody else may fire 1.25" darts. If you choose to fire someone else's darts (esp. if they are longer than yours, even by a fraction of an inch) your breech will either jam, clip the darts, or fail to some extent. Shorter darts will most likely wiggle around enough to fall down vertically.
Additionally, dart OD varies dart-to-dart. Batches of FBR have always been know to vary fractionally even within the same package. Dart OD will expand and contract just like length will. If your leave 2 seemingly identical darts in 2 different barrel materials (loose fitting copper/brass or tight-fitting CPVC), you will
have 2 noticeably different darts after a period of time (even as short a period of 12 hours).
And I would put wire at the end of the breech as opposed to that big AR dealio.
