Excellent, thanks. I understand that each batch varies, but would you expect even the tighter fits in the brass to be able to breech load from a clip? I understand if this is beyond your scope of experience at this point.

Also, apprehension was a technically correct term in context.

You are correct and I have reflected that in an edit.

If you mean like an LS breech, I would think so. My experience is limited but I do remember my AR-removed LS feeding 2.5" darts (from an older batch, not the newer, thicker one) feeding with an occasional jam in the winter. The thicker darts I imagine would feed much better, and you seem to be a better modder than I, so if you got a good batch I would think it would work.

Do you mean it is too tight or too loose in the 17/32? Sorry if my apprehension is somehow lacking.

Otherwise, very helpful. Thanks again.

Whoops. Forgot to add that.

Yeah, the fit is concerning-ly tight but still possible with that batch in the 17/32 brass. I don't use my brass barrel too often, but it did still shoot.

Generally I end up with foam that has just slightly less than, if not equal to, stock foam diameter. With AMIORS the foam tends to widen, though, so that may be why the batch in question is pretty tight in the 17/32. I just checked with a couple of blanks, and they have tighter-end springer fit in said brass.

EDIT: More concisely said I generally gotten iffy airgun fit in 9/16 and good springer fit in CPVC and 17/32. My most recent batch is the only time I've gotten anything larger than stock diameter, and the difference is marginal.

MD-Building Products Foam is the foam I usually buy from Lowes for my darts. As Ryan pointed out, being able to buy it in store means I can sort through what they have and pick up the thickest of the batches- thus, getting it online may result in getting vastly different results than what I have written below.

From what I've bought, the fit is generally much more consistent than Frost King (Home Depot) with most having a tight-but-no-twisting fit into the CPVC I bought at the same location. However, judging from my use of brass, the fit is generally too loose to not use tightening rings in 9/16 brass for airguns. My most recent batch, and the largest diameter I have bought thus far, has trouble fitting in 17/32 brass, however. It is a more difficult twist in my smaller CPVC barrels, but it still fits and shoots nicely. Density is decent, nothing special.

The last thing to note is that the color is generally a lighter gray than the other foam I've bought around here, meaning ACE and Frost King foam. ACE is significantly darker, and Frost King is marginally darker. I have a hard time finding all of my darts in the grass after I've shot them. I don't imagine this will be as large a problem after making more darts with bulk-bought foam.

Just my two cents.

Man... its been a LONG time. Nice to be back into the Nerf Scene.

Useful Arsenal (whole shot)

The Primaries are leaned up on my wall, and their corresponding sidearms are on the floor.

The Maverick needs no picture:
It has an AR removal, increased seal using an AR spring, and the cylinder pops out a bit further. Nothing special.

Bagsfinder. I got it used and in a state of... oldness at Geddon '09. I finally got around to couplering it.
Has 1st Gen spring, Cpvc coupler, and a minimization. Nothing big.

The Paintball-ammo cylinder clip from the Pistol Splat Magnums makes for a nice belt hook. Someone else should try it; I took it on a morning run to see how many times it fell. It didn't (for me, at least).

Red BBB; I kinda messed up on couplering this, so the plunger stop isn't present.
Other than that, it has plunger padding, increased seal, new lube, CPVC 3/4 to 1/2 coupler, an Everbuilt spring, and an extra catch and trigger spring to accommodate for it.

Christmas gift: a Predator Magnum. CPVC couplered. nothing much, but I really like Pistol Splats and their variants.

Barrel is straightened by the use of an LSFG Front Barrel jammed into the orange muzzle.

Here's one VERY useful tip for reassembling a Magnum. There are two screws connected to the metal priming rod section of the lever action. Unscrew it before reassembling. Then, halfway prime it (there are two sections on the plunger "rod") and screw it back on. Incredibly helpful and shortened reassembly time from 10 minutes to 2 minutes.

I know these pics aren't the best, but they should do....

EDIT: Oh yeah, I am in need of Orange Tape; the E -Tape being black isn't the safest thing in the world.

I couldn't renew my old tag for some reason... so I made a new one.


I can play:
CoD: Black Ops
Halo Reach
CoD Modern Warfare 2 (occasionally)
CoD 4 Modern Warfare (occasionally)
Medal of Honor (the recent one)
Halo 3 (certain Custom Games)

and other among my stash which are so insignificant I forgot them.

Please note that this list is in "I want to play this" order from greatest to least, so don't expect me to get on Halo 3 just for you.
