    16mm conduit sounds good on air and springers. Hep20 is actually a bit tight if you want high performance, packing a standard dart modified with BB weight to the back of a 4 inch barrel gives 20ft range on a NF, due to high friction. Close to 70ft if not packed back. Friction kills it, especially in winter when everything's a fraction of a mm smaller.

    Nah man, Conduit's no good for air guns. Too tight. Works like a bloody.. Uhm. Something that works awesome. For sprinters, though.

    Charm?

    On the other hand, my BBBB and Beserker and Shotblast works pretty well with my 16mm conduit.
    My RSCB is barrelled with conduit as well, so it's really a hit and miss situation with barrel materials.
    You can have one blaster that works wonders and the same one's a dud.

    Charm! That was so obvious, no idea why I couldn't think of it..

    Guess you're right there, would also depend on the batch of pipe and such.

    Have you tried PETG or something a bit looser on those air guns? I actually haven't tested, I just go by what I've heard, which is firm fit for air guns, tight fit for spring.

    I'm of the school that prefers PETG for airguns. I like a 'snug' fit for my darts when using airguns, it seems to work better from my experiences.

    In my FAQs, I've listed the recommendations of barreling materials. It's really a guide for someone to have a look at to get some decent information. Like I said before, it's very hit and miss when it comes to barreling, there's people who swear by conduit, PETG or Alu. It's really a personal preference.

    You've necroed a thread by a few weeks. It wouldn't really be an issue, except that not only have you failed to contribute anything useful, but I'm baffled as to why you would post what you did. I mean, what does being a WA modder have to do with barrel material???

    Consider this your only warning. Next time, why don't you introduce yourself in the proper thread...

    Cheers,

    I made I mistake I have been making a lot lately. Posting in the wrong forum or quoting the wrong thing. Do you want me to delete my posts on this forum sir? I was ment to quote:

    I believe someone asked what is a good fit for 15mm stefans and I think 20mm pvc but that is probably not the best.
