You can't buy it in stores, but you can buy it from me. (Cxwq made me the main supplier). Its only $1.25/foot, with a minimum order of 8'(its changed). PM me if you're interested.

You should be able to find petg tubing at a local plastics supply house. I haven't tried this yet but it seems like something they would carry. Anyway I'm a newbie at nerf modding but I've been modifying toys for a long time and thought I'd give nerf weapons a try. I'll try to not ask too many stupid newbie questions so if I do try to be nice.

The problem with PETG isn't finding a supplier, it's finding a supplier that has the size you want and a minimum order under a thousand feet.

PETG is only really used for retail packaging so the sizes are pretty arbitrary. It took me 6 months to hunt down the stuff IronRhino is selling. I had to talk to four manufacturers and send for three sample pieces before I was satisfied that I had an acceptable barrel material for micro stefans. The $200+ minimum order was just the icing on that particular shit cake.

But it was worth it to be able to entertain the notion of a barrel modded RF20...

PETG is used mostly for packaging, plastic bottles and whatnot. You can also get it in sheets so you can use it in vacuforming. I just called my local plastics house and indeed they didn't carry PETG tube, they did give me a place to call so I'll see if that pans out. Anyway I'm building a small (11" square) vacuform table for work, any ideas on how it can be used to further my Nerf interests?

Jesus, dude, get it right. It's PETG, not PTEG. Like you've said like 5 times.
