It is all Sch-80 minus the barrel. The chamber is 4" by approx 20".
It needs for completion is my order from spudshot.com to bring my stun gun and chamber fan,4" sch-80 coupling, and to get my fueling system finished.

I will be using this gun for a pneumatic, combustion and a hybrid. Mostyly combustion but hybrid when I have access to an air supply.
Edit: It should be done within a week, I don't think I can maek it too the Ipla meeting with it. Unless I skip the painting temprarily and hurry my as up and get it finished.

Most of the time, you don't because the air you pump in effectively mixes the fuel. But, for only a short while. A fan would also help with venting afterwards, and also for additional mixing.

I don't think you should paint it. I like the look of gray sch 80. It makes them look like better quality then the cheap white.
