I dont get what your asking. How do you know if somethings wrong if you havent even shot it yet? Take a shot mate and if anything is wrong post it up again because I cant see anything wrong on it.

the grips might slide out and the mix will probably settle by the time you get the barrel on.

i really dont recommend soda bottles because they are thin. some people argue that they are safe, but i dont feel safe using them, so i dont.

edited to add that: electrical tape melts on combustions and turns into a black usless goop.

also, pvc is very cheap, and in some cases, free, so why not just do it the right way?

You can get clear PVC pipe. :wink:

The hand grips are concerning. This could work, but it looks flimsy enough that I wouldn't feel safe holding it.
