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.


ik u want power use cut pices

cut pieces in halfes for a powerful barrel use the pieces like in the morretti sniper look at the barrel

Ya, i find cut pieces VERY helpful, i used it on my sniper down below

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

like this?


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.

Yep, I much prefer them to tans.

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

It was a year ago, I can't remember.

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

Thats what I meant. Looking forward to your shotty though =].

It wouldent work, i'll try again after my fully auto

Cool, I'd prefer crank though, maybe I'll mod it after you post it and after I've finnished and posted my bolt action rifle.

It might not work, Its a new true trigger type

I will just make it so its crank-able or has a true trigger

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...

i havent built a tan clip for a long time so im rusty on that... but i dont care cuz connector barrels are so good they ROCK MY SOCKS OFF!!!!!

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.

what is this


i thitk that the 'n' key is broket ot my computer

hmmm... then y did u use the letter "n" in quotes
