haha thanks for all the replies.

it is named JANET because I thought "this cannon needs a name" and i was listening to "jane" by Jefferson Starship..... lol.

as for the "thermoplastic" stuff, yes that is bondo. It still needs work though its not as smooth as id like.

As for the color i will be painting it, it will be the same color grey as the Barret 14mm, wich happened to be a very good color to give the copper and the black scope contrast.

The rail was made with a scroll saw and a 2X4, then the ends were sanded on a 1 inch drum sander to make it fit nice along the 1 inch barrel shroud, in which then i just superglued it on. it holds EXTREMELY well. better than i expected.

I will post a Paint diagram of the adjustable ammo stop shortly.

Pretty good so far. Just wondering, how do you put the blowgun inside the pipe? Like, how do you cut it?
Edit- sorry, just saw the date of the post.

Not a problem in my opinion. You asked a legitimate question.

Here are the cut points:

and Here is what it should look like when it is done:

I simply cut a slit out of the front of the pipe so it slid on nicely, and then epoxied the pipe to the blowgun. Hope this helps.
