    PETG Replacement

    Post  inf0rm3r on Mon Oct 11, 2010 11:43 am

    I've also sent some PETG to my supplier who does the silicone tips.

    I have been picking and picking at re-ordering PETG then I came up with a possibility for a replacement.

    The issues I've seen with PETG so far are, it bends a bit to easily and some parts of the batch may not be completely round.

    So I was thinking how many of you would be interested in a plastic pipe with the exact dimensions of PETG at roughly the same price without these two issues?

    Should be no problem to make it clear for a good price.

    Definitely interested. PETG is a good fit on my darts, so I'm in need of a fair bit of it.

    the main advantage of PETG for me is its lightness. If its as heavy as more common barrel materials, I'll stick with those.

    i'd say it would be good to have both, as like Jason said, petg's main advantage is its weight

    Yeah, light is good, for example, rebarreling is a bitch if it's heavy, e.g. Hornet.

    Yep, I'm interested. Something that can be handworked with basic files and saws would be great.

    I'm also looking for a fabricated plastic pipe with the exact same OD as 16mm UPVC conduit (which works perfectly with 21/32" brass) that has a slightly wider ID of exactly 14mm, in which normal ID (around 13.5 or 17/32") is too tight for my liking. PM me if that can be arranged; I'm looking to buy around 5-10m of it to begin with.

    I'm very very interested in what silent scope mentioned too.
    Something just looser than conduit and a little tighter than PETG.
    I'm sure that the melbourne crew would collectively get a fair amount of something like that.

    This Petg Replacement will it have the same od as the old petg, if not it will not fit in 3k,2k,4k,and Smx1500 for rebarreling.

    he doesn't have to do two. It's just logical to have a more ideal springer barrel material seeing as a good airgun material already exists in PETG.

    it's just a suggestion.

    The problem is of course that PETG only exists through informer, essentially - so if he makes a new ideal springer material, say goodbye to PETG for airguns.

    And airguns are always awesomer. /flame away

    (Just a personal preference, if you flame you're wasting all of our time)

    I'm looking at a possible replacement, I don't see the need in making another springer material, we have plenty at the moment.

    Fair enough. It's you money. Down the road we might look at something because conduit is bullshit. And brass is far far too pricey.

    Yeah, I'll be looking into it, just not at this point, it costs roughly $2,000 to do each project at least.
