You might have glued the barrel on crooked, or slightly off. I think that barrels do absolutely nothing in flywheel guns, someone correct me if I am wrong.

It would be pretty hard to re-attach it crooked. It slides right into a fitting that keeps it straight.

I sawed the front of the barrel off the other day. It looks much better without it, but I think it's actually affecting accuracy quite significantly. Either that or my screamer darts are getting a little worn out from being repeatedly fired at walls. My Barricade used to fire fire incredibly straight (I could even trust the built-in sight), but after removing the barrel the darts frequently fly off in varying directions, giving me an "accurate" shot only about 50% of the time.

I should note that this could also be due to wear on the flywheels or something like that. I just looked down the barrel and the bottom wheel looks like it might be a little wobbly. I'll have to open the gun to investigate.

Additionally, I'll say that in sawing off the front of the barrel I did re-attach a portion of the ribbed inner tube that fell out unsupported after removing the "suppressor" looking thing at the front.

The only problem that I'm having with the Barricade right now is that the trigger seems sticky and/or it jams open. It's not quite as bad if I have the screws around the trigger and handle a little loose, but it's still noticeable.

Have you come across this and/or maybe you could share how you've positioned the wires inside so that they don't interfere with anything? I'm thinking that might be what's causing the problem.

Just found a barricade in a Toys R' Us a couple of days ago. Went out looking for some similar batteries to the ones you have. I found some 14500 lithium batteries rated at 3.6 volts but the guy at the battery store said you can't get them in a rechargeable. The batteries were 11.99 each. In other words, the batteries were more than the gun.

Really happy with it though, working on doing some small tune-ups on it. Gonna sand down the inside of the barrel tip a little to remove a lip that might make it a little less accurate. Also will probably at some foam and some lube to reduce noise once I've opened it up.

I'm wondering, SG, if you've thought about removing the end of the barrel / the suppressor thing to make it more compact. Would that severely reduce accuracy or should it be inconsequential. From where I'm standing it seems like it might be really important for the accuracy of the gun to have some barrel between the flywheels and the open air to guide the darts. But it would be really cool if I could trim the length down on this thing.
