Extended 10-rd tubes

Hey guys,

I was using my springpheeds this weekend that I have on a couple of my guns and I was thinking it would be awesome if I could get larger-sized (15-20rd) tubes so that one tube fully fills the chamber. I was playing a scenario and the extra paint would have been super helpful in a few situations. Is this a thing? If not any suggestions for how to make some? I was thinking I could cut one rounded end of a 10rd and connect it to an unmolested one, it would look janky, but should be functional.

Thoughts?

Jonny

Oh, you too? I've been looking around for something that would work as well. Apparently cigar tubes seem to be a set length and other plastic tubes seem to be too fat to fit in a rig proper or too narrow for the paintballs to fit.

Oh trust me, when I find a nice, easy, and cheap alternative y'all will be the first to hear bouts it. I have plenty of ideas, just need to find time to implement some.

Brass has been done before, just costs and weighs more.

Pvc pipe. The thin stuff, not schedule 40. Take a paintball to the hardware store, roll it through a few (probably 3/4). Cut to size. Use a cap glued to one side and a plug on the other. Just a thought.

Cut a tub in half.
Trim a cap so it can act a a sleeve.
Glue the top half of tube to another tube using the cap/sleeve as a reinforcing point.
15 round tube
Profit

Yep, that was going to be my first stop but with a longer brace than the cap. My only concern for me is how brutal I can be with my gear, I wanted to test the durability with my nonsense.

I have a link in my research folder with some saved in it.


One version I am debating about finding time to do was a glue on extension that gets 3d printed. I kinda wanted to do one with a lever retention instead of a cap as well. Many many thoughts have gone through my mind, even considered carbon fiber for the looks (found some that would work, but would be $10+ per tube).

Along this same line you could use heat shrink to connect 2 tubes together.
