    It nests if not air tight than damn close to it over 16mm grey. Can be used as a coupler for 16mm grey barrels, breech outers and inline clips

    That's 20mm grey. 25mm grey is to 20mm grey as 25mm orange is to 20mm orange conduit.

    Doing some research on longshot mods. I want my longshot to hit around 100ft. Anyone know how to do this without singling it. Be much appreciated.

    That was my original plan.


    1. Any spring combos or better springs that would be good? Currently I've got a Stock + Nf spring combo but I want more power.


    And 2. What's a good material for plunger padding?

    A nice spring combo would be A stock LS spring and BBB spring, depending on how strong you are you may or may not want to use a K26, the best springs would be SS springs.

    Any thing soft but not too thick will suffice as padding, I personally use the pads you use on your chairs, you can also use craft foam aswell. If all those options are unabliable you can youse a BBB arrow and cut it up.

    1. Get a 13kg spring (SS spring)or use a triple shot and stock Longshot spring

    2. Craft foam (don't ask me where to get it because I found it at home)



    @ Ungmon you have to cut down a k26 to fit in a longshot

    Yeah I know but yeah keep that in mind JacobYeah, you have to cut down he K26, dont ask me how much to cut down I dont know, you can use the remainder of the spring to use in NF's etc

    Assuming I'm looking to single a springer, would I be better off with a LongShot or a Triple Shot? Both would have the same spring, which would be more powerful?

    I'd go for the TS simply because it'll be so much easier to single, correct me if Im wrong but it also has a larger plunger tube, it's pump action and typically much cheaper than a LS, depending on where you get from. However it's ultimately up to you

    What about a hand cannon? It's probably exactly like a ts, but with a single barrel. Probably easy to single too. Btw, anyone know where to get em?

    Also, what is the LS plunger rod made out of? I've pulled it apart many a time so I should know, but total mind blank at the moment. Anyone know the diameter of the rod while we're at it?

    I would just go outside and pull mine apart and check it myself but none of my LS's are here currently, and I've got a few ideas floating around in my head right now.

    LS plunger rod is made out of black plastic, not dissimilar to that of the maverick turret. NFI about the diameter though.

    I would say a triple shot. Cheaper, and far easier to single, you simply need to take the turret off and epoxy a coupler onto it.

    RSCB TS is probably the only blast I will ever use for a long while. Just due to the fact that it's simplicity, range and doesn't require clips. It's a great blaster. I wouldn't epoxy a coupler straight on. If you dremel a small piece of 20mm conduit to fit on top of the plunger tube, it's cleaner.

    Yes, the 20mm is a far easier and cleaner option.

    The ID of PETG is about 12.9-13.0mm. It's a tight but firm fit with 13mm FBR.

    Anyone know whether a TS or LS is stronger though (assuming the same spring)? Not fussed about simplicity, both would be relatively straight forward.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    HobbyCo in the QVB stock it, as do some local hobby stores. Check for ones that sell model trains, as they use it for that (I think).

    It seems that while I've been on hiatus, a number of you guys have forgotten about the search function, or primarily, the FAQ section.

    After reading a number of questions pertaining to sourcing materials, may I direct everyone to this thread:
