:lol:
well just make sure the orings are an absolute perfect fit, you may have to order off the internet so you can get the presice size that wouldnt be avaible in harware stores.
you want them to seal perfectly and yet have very low drag, so the pipe has to be very smooth and it has to be lubed up like nuts.

chamber sealers are fidgety but if you devote to one im sure you can do it.

For what it's worth, chamber-sealing guns do have one inherent advantage... true breech-loading.
