    Not PETG. I think it is acrylic, I'll check into it to make 100% sure.
    Not sure about ID, OD is 18mm. 2mm side wall.
    Only have a sample. Fit is looseish, should suit air blasters.
    Going to play round with it a bit, see if i can put tightening rings on it.




    Really I am just trying to find a clear barrel at a decent price,PETG is great but cost to much for shipping from overseas.
    And supply's on Oznerf seem to have dried up.
    Any input would be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers

    $10 a metre is pretty expensive, at 18mm OD it will probably be too wide for some turrets, at 2mm wall thickness will be a lot heavier than PETG, Acrylic is also pretty brittle isn't it ? So durability may be a concern.

    One of our younger guys made a quadshot with this acrylic, and suffice to say, its not terribly effective. It is good for covering 17/32" brass tips though.

    The OP has said its loose fitting so not sure why anyone would ever use it on a springer.

    This would be the better choice.

    http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com.au/viewitem?itemId=250906139272&index=2&nav=SEARCH&nid=08494691622

    15mm OD, 2mm wall = 13mm ID. It is fairly expensive at $6 per metre and $20 shipping but could work,

    There's 2 walls so that would give it an ID of 11mm.

    If you go to their site they have free shipping.

    It is more brittle the say PVC, but takes a fair bit of force (hitting it against something) to crack it.
    1m of the stuff is about 100g
    I would not use this one for springers.

    Evozn: I have that exact product as well, it is to small. Remember it has 2 walls, so 15mmOD makes for roughly 11mmID. To get 13mmID i guess you would need 17mmOD.

    It seems costs are to high from the supplier I had in mind. Shipping was just silly.

    http://www.acrylicsonline.com.au/shop/category/cat14081/Acrylic_Tube.html

    As lech said, you can get the same thing from this site.
    The 18mm is $8.15 per m. Free shipping.
    The OD20mm x 3.5mm x 2M Long Should have a better fit, but may struggle to fit on turrets.

    I will contact the supplier and see if they can manufacture something more suited to nerf.

    Still trying to get a suppler for a clear barrel.
    I have a sample of this http://store.visipak.com/1-2-x-4-Heavy-Wall-Round-Clear-Plastic-Tube.html
    It seems pretty good, dart fit is much better. It is PETG.

    They do have a Australian distributor. With about 450+ tubes
    Pricing is $1.42 per 4' tube, plus postage.

    What do you think?

    I think 4 is not a suitable barrel length for pretty much anything you would bother rebarreling-try and find something better
