nah the barrel is 60mm the chamber 80mm,i know its a crap ratio but it twas my first.but the end cap adapter is 100mm and 100mm long so it adds a bit of volume as i couldnt get 80mm end caps.

p.s i edited one letter in my last post and i got 0.00099999999999988 spudbux hoo raa :twisted:

If your getting chased off a police dog, try not to run through a tunnel then onto a small see-saw then through a ring of fire. They are trained for that!
