Hey
I attached 8mmID copper barrel into my 20mm pvc barrel. I made a pvc sheet to fit into the 20mm barrel, then drilled a hole for the copper pipe. I then added about 2cm of epoxy glue to secure it in. I then did the same thing near the end of the barrel. It works fine, wouldn't trust it for high pressure for a long period of time, but it works fine for my 100psi rifle.

What type of estimate? I'm in Australia. Mine was a 3/8" OD barrel from Auto One, it cost me about $20 for 3 feet.

Just use a compression fitting, they're around $1.50 US.
