Have you applied any coatings to the barrel? Replaced the mouthpiece? I would love to hear what you guys have done!
I havent noticed any. However there are people out there that claim it makes the dart FASTER!
What is their rationale? I'm not sure that I could see how that would be the case.I havent noticed any. However there are people out there that claim it makes the dart FASTER!
From what I gather they believe that the slight magnetic resistance allows for more compression of air. But I think they are reaching a bit. I don't notice a difference with or without a magnet,What is their rationale? I'm not sure that I could see how that would be the case.I havent noticed any.

One of the legends of the Air Cannon world did some pretty intense testing of this and found that yes, it does increase velocity if done correctly as you have a higher air pressure moving the projectile for more of it's travel.That's smart!! Does it affect the dart velocity at all?
It is a great help for anyone with poor technique. If the air pressure applied is low for the first tenth of a second, it can push the dart a foot or two down the bore before it begins optimum acceleration.so a four foot barrel would wind up performing more like a two footer. If the magnet is strong enough it prevents dart slide caused by lower pressures.What is their rationale? I'm not sure that I could see how that would be the case.
On the other forum Pgandy posted this pic of his two piece. The red dots on the handle portion of the mouthpiece are actually holes that were drilled into the handle section - magnets placed into the holes then glued in place and the holes filled in. Or at least something close to that process. You can easily see where the red holes are in the photo.Anyone have any pics with the magnets in place?
Personally I'd never put oil of any sort down the bore of my BG. It would act as a huge dirt collector. Plus even if it was cleaned and there was still a surface coating in the bore, the surface tension of the oil would server to slow down the dart. A perfectly dry bore would be far more affective and not collect dirt when not in use if the BG was hung vertically.The BG I had many years ago had a Teflon coating on the inside. I can not remember what brand it was but It would hall tail and packed a heck of a punch. I do not remember caliber it was 20 years ago. I was wondering if a thick oil would work well and help with any tolerance imperfections.
