Barrels Answered

I soon, i am going to make my Extrem shotgun, But this gun will probally use a barrel That is made of connectors (kinda like all the pistols). So i wanted to ask everyone What are the pros and cons of a connector barrel vs. the tanclip barrel like in my Extrem.

Connector barrels are harder to work with, but when applied correctly have superior performance to tan clip barrels.

I find they have more power and jam less often (bbwkg2 is a great example, got to remake that today)

If the firing pin is ligned up correctly with the top, then it won't jam. Though I personally haven't had much trouble making tan barrels work. Connector barrels nearly always have more power.

there wider, not by much, but are wider, making a lot less friction.

Tan jams unless you line it with paper.

The only ones I've ever made is Ipodkiller's sniper and Mepain's sniper, and they both did.

I don't cut greys and I've never had a tan clip jam excessively, only 'bout 3-4 out of 50 shots, not perfect, but not bad.

You're not supposed to load the bullet into the tan chamber with Mepain's sniper, did you watch the video?

i made a barrel that that uses a system that is 100% jam free because the mag is lined up right around the circle hole of a white unlike the tan one that has a gap thats why u need to put paper its hard to explain

Spiff barrel/El Diablo barrel is the best in my opinion!

Mags like the BBKWG are good, Iunno if thats what you meant by connector barrel, but I was using BB's gun as an example, I prefer connector barrels to tan clips though.

A connector barrel is a barrel used on pistols like AST or Spiff

i think tan clips are better than connector barrels on larger guns, tan clips are not recommended on pistols, however, i think a tan lock would be perfect on a shotgun...

More friction on a tan clip barrel, and rods tend to catch onto the end of the ram, so rail type barrels fire farther and don't jam, but sometimes don't compare in looks.
