I have this idea for making stefans. What id do is go out buy some 1/2 inch pvc.Buy my fbr, cut the desired lengths.Stick it in the pvc then get the hair dryer and heat the pvc then id wait a week or so to cool off.then id take it out. Would this work? Can i get your opinions?

If i made any mistakes sorry im new.

I originally did this with 9/16" brass. But I found the process was took too long.
The problem with this idea is that 1/2" fbr is very loose in 1/2" pvc. You would figure that 1/2" pvc would have an inner diameter of 1/2". This however is not the case. It is more like 5/8".

Thanks, maybe ill try it with brass then. But do you think the way of sticking them in a pillowcase and putting them in the dryer might work better?

That's what I use, and I believe most of us use as well. It works quite well as long as you don't cook 'em too long.

Thanks again angel for that movie. I used it tonight when I made my first large batch of stefans. And on a completely other sudject (well not really) I plan on using a knitting needle to make holes for the post in my longshot. I can't find how to take that fucking thing out.

To remove the barrel post, after removing the air restrictor, you take a drill with a 1/2" bit, stick it in as far as it will go, and you drill the damn thing out.

Or, you can use an ice pick and a hammer. But only if you are cool. Seriously.

Removing the AR's in an LS is quite easy, you just need to make sure you have steady hands and the right tools needle nose pliers and a dremel for me).

EDIT- I found out how to take out the plunger and I took out the AR but was wondering if its worth it to cut out the post. I might as well but Im not sure.

I do it to all of my LS's. It allows you to use any dart, evern stefans without holes in the back, which will reduce your dart-making time.

I was a little hesitant at first too. I thought it might have a lot to do with feeding the dart in straight, and I would have problems with it if I took it out. It's removed now, and I have had no problems with feeding at all. I'd take the post out, unless you plan on never using Stefans in it.

Oh far from it. Im currently working on two banana clips for my LS (They will be made like the real thing) and an ammo tin full of stefans + my new rifle bolts (longer and stronger). So I think I will do that then. Thanks.

I would use a hot wire cutter, you know a twisted peice of metal and you heat the end with a blowtorch and cut it off when it is hot. Has worked for my two and my friends.
We should stop calling out/making fun of/pissing GC off. He's actually contributed and is available for trade. He's a better than average member no doubt. Got your back Cole.
