Same weekend as EndWar, which I'm only sort-of attending so I probably won't be able to make it.

16 attendees. That was fun.

Boy it was cold.

 

Let's do it again in a few months.

You don't really have to start from a blank sheet if all you want is a shortened Caliburn. You can just trade available plunger stroke for spring compression (and as a result slightly less deadspace). You can also shorten the ramrod a bit to gain a little effective barrel length.

 

Your multi-catch plunger concept however is really interesting. And that's one thing that a diameter increase can accomplish. Given that the Caliburn was designed with the option of using Schedule 40 PVC for the plunger tube you probably have room in the stock area to use 1-1/2" ID 1-5/8" OD tubing for the plunger tube by just redesigning the pieces for the stock.

Waffle tips are LESS affected because they're really heavy.

 

The SCAR barrel is primarily compensating for not having a completely ideal barrel length for a given dart. But ideal length is a kind of nebulous thing that has a lot of variables, so having something you can adjust slightly is beneficial.
