how do i make my gun shoot better

This area is for the discussion of BB or airsoft sub machine guns, and or other small arms such as pellets. No home made BB or airsoft guns should ever be used in a match where you shoot other people... they are too powerful.

i have a normal bbmg and it is very weak, sure it can shread paper but it can't shoot through card board ect. I have checked for leaks and there are none. I have a 2 inch barrel though, is that a problem?

Can you give more information? Do you mean 2" long? What diameter is the barrel, and what are your chamber dimensions, operating pressure, etc ?

Your barrel is too short. Try it with a ~3 foot barrel.

I don't recall ever hearing about a BBMG with a barrel that short.

oh it does, it will empty a round in about 5 to 7 seconds at 100 psi not bad huh? Also, i have tried to elongate my barrel using a 1/4 inch sleve of pvc around my origional barrel that works ok but would i get better results if i had the sleve the same size as the origional barrel

How many is <i>"a round"</i>? A longer barrel would help. You can get 1/4" ID aluminum pipe on McMaster for fairly cheap. I think it is $14 for 6 feet.
