6mm drill bit to keep them centred and you can easily epoxy two 300mm lengths together with a sleeve over the join.

You could keep that sleeve going to the muzzle and back to the breach. Then implement a silencer.

I too thinking of joining two together earlier today,how long do you guys think the barrel would be best at though??

Good idea with the drill bit and yes I planned on running some sort of silencer because of the illegality of such guns in Australia :roll:

As long as you're comfortable with, as always longer is usually more powerful and quieter but more cumbersome.

The aluminium nozzle should give you a 250mm length of tubing, with an ID just a smidge above 6mm, you'll have to cut either end though, as the tube is crimped to attach to the plastic. Seems to fit a 6mm ball bearing quite well.

Well, what can you do. I spent 3 months in the U.S. a few years back, and had about $7,500 of airsoft gear I had to leave behind, and a couple of licensed replica 1.77 guns.

But back to Australia... I actually used a pipe cutter on above unit yesterday, and found that it ended up a bit tight (I have a 6mm steel bearing stuck in the end).

However, for $9.95 at Masters (Australian version of Lowes), you can get this:

Image

https://www.masters.com.au/product/9000 ... sprayer-6l

It comes with a bonus giant piston inside:

Image

I found the fit a tad too loose for my liking (and not quite short enough), so I grabbed an arrow I had laying about (Gold Tip Expedition Hunter 3555) and lopped off both ends with the same pipe cutter. Replaced the metal sprayer with the arrow, muzzle loaded a 6mm neodynium magnet, gave the piston 10 pumps, pressed the release, and hit myself in the eye (glasses) as it rebounded off a wall :p

Arrow specs: Length: 30" OD: .291" ID: .246"

Bought from http://www.ozhuntingandbows.com.au (although I bought it in person, they will ship) for $5 or $10 a piece (I forget). Was actually the "default" arrow for the compound bow I bought. They also sell 6mm (and other sized) slingshot ammunition, as well as rubber.

The only thing I am having a hard time finding are actual plastic .20g 6mm airsoft rounds. Seems a bit silly that I can buy 6mm steel bearings, but not 6mm plastic ones. (Or that I can buy a 70 pound compound bow that will go through an interior wall, without even showing a drivers license).

BTW, if you have ever owned a crappy see-through wallmart airsoft gun, then you may recognise some familiar features in this water pistol – which is quite legal to import and maybe available for local sale (never checked)

http://www.amazon.com/Saturator-STR60-d ... 003VWCXUO/

I got around to pulling one apart last week, and once you drill out the smaller-sized bits, and rotate the tee from pointing down, to pointing up, you will find everything is amazingly sized at about 6mm and change. Turns out the company who makes them, also make paintball and airsoft guns.

That's a 6mm neo magnet at the open end of the pink tubing (kept it place by a shattered place of a disc magnet on the side).

I recently purchased 6mm carbon fibre tube from eBay within Australia for $16.50 at 1 metre lengths.
It's a perfect fit for the bb's I have.
The eBay seller is "Micronwings"

Hey mate.

i'm in Victoria and I found the perfect barrels, they come from a little place called Carbon Fibre Australia in Warragul.

They barrels are 1 metre long and about $27 AuD. Having bought one myself, they're very straight and very reliable in that carbon fibre does not rust. However! - when cutting them, be sure to use a very fine coping saw as the fibres tend to fray very easily. :)

Worth every cent however as a 24 calibre ball (6mm) fits perfectly!
