You don't want to order pipes from there, they aren't cheap...

Just to appease you, part number 8859K21 is a decent barrel. But they are sold in packs of 12.

You really should make a PVC coax first to understand the concepts. They are more forgiving for newbies. Then once you understand it better, make the mini.

I stick with minis as I dont trust larger ones such as my overpowered gatorade gun which I threw away. I like sticking to minis. I just need a forgiving mini that has decent power.

Minis are harder to make with precision, that's all I'm saying.

Well this is why you get the chamber and barrel before you make the piston.
