    i had a maverick laying around and was wondering if using 17/32 brass to re-barrell it would give it better range than the stock barrels with a BT spring

    Definitely, the stock barrel does not have a 100% seal, and a brass breech has a really good seal.

    He wants to rebarrel it. Not breech it (which would be useless and a waste of brass).

    that would be a good idea, but CPVC or PETG would better

    Your time would probably be better spent on improving the plunger to turret seal...

    Cheers,

    Cheers,

    I'd agree, the barrel seals aren't horrible and to whoever said petg, it's looser than the stock barrel. And...You might aswell rebarrel another gun like an NF or something because mavericks are pretty limited in their range.

    PETG will be a fail. 17/32 will require some work in getting the length right as with condu. Best bet would be turret seal improvements and a black tac spring and just use it for the short range side arm that it is.
