    16mm UPVC (Electrical conduit) is what you need, that's what it's called at electrical stores. No need to get yourself confused with OD's and ID's.

    Although, it is is 16mm OD for future reference.

    UPVC tends to be accurate in measurements while PVC seems to have been measured by a blind man, don't ask me why : )

    You will need to test it because some 16mm conduit is to small to be a barrel for Nerf darts.

    Definitely take your foam and check the fit.

    I bought some 16mm on the weekend and 8/10 I tested were way too loose on the informer blue foam.

    I've never experienced a 16mm conduit that was 'too loose'. The worse I've gotten was too tight and perfect sizing. Learning something new everyday... XS

    Yeah, I haven't experienced 16mm conduit too loose either. It's usually quite a tight fit, that's with the AussieDuct brand anyway, using streamlines.

    Same deal, I've tried a few different brands of 16mm conduit, with them all being either a very tight fit, or at least a snug fit.

    Cheers,
