You don't attach the barrel to a cap
I would disagree with that. I have done exactly that on all my builds. It is little more difficult to change barrels but, you shouldn't need to change barrels much.

Yeah basically. In the past I have used a file or pocket knife to slowly remove material. then once in use epoxy to hold it in. I would also advice supporting it at the base or making sure it is supported along its length to avoid it flexing and cracking your epoxy.

today i went to Hobby Town USA and bought the perfect aluminum barrel. they sell small aluminum and brass tubes of all sizes for guys that make model trains or whatever.and they can be from 1 to 3 feet in length. i bought the 1ft long 6mm id aluminum for $2. its pretty thick so it bending isn't even an issue. I'm using it for a cqb airsoft gun I'm currently working on and plan on posting soon.

Looks good, vortex caps are great but in my opinion inlines are easier.

For a high rof yes the vortex block is just the feeding mech, fully load it and see it's true rof and power

oh alright thanks

and one more thing, i dun like using my air compressor all the time because its so freegen loud >_< and especially since its 11 pm right now and some of my family members are sleeping

so i've been wanting to build my own air tank out of PVC but i cant find any pressure rated pipes ( i will check another Home depot )

but also the pipe is gigantic when i buy it...

is there possibly other ways of making air tanks where i can hand pump air into it

Yep. I made this out of a dry chemical fire extinguisher, and it hold plenty of air for a few hundred rounds. It is normally pressurized to 120 psi with the dry chemical and has been tested to 360 psi. I use it at 120 to 140 psi.
