This should fit nice and tight: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1-4-OD-Brass- ... 35a1ba2f61

It's only 12 inches but you can always splice a couple of tubes together.

the wall thickness is 0.5mm which is too thin as my old barrel bent to easily and that was 1mm thick i need something like 10mm wall thickness and 6mm bore

You can always sleeve it in a thicket pipe and fill the gap with epoxy ;)

Great job on you're first one! I'm about to make my first and I was wondering what materials you used used for your one 1and if you have any plans made for it?? Also could I copy you're design and edit it? Aussie FTW! also once you test the ranges would you be able to message me with what you got?

Thanks for the kind words, but Crna Legija is right, this is around a year old now.. you should have made your own thread with those questions or sent me a PM man.

It is all copper tubing with a QEV attached, you can buy them from eBay.
As for range, I think I have another video on the same channel as the video I linked on page 2 that shows ballpark distances. I won't link it directly as one of the things I shot at is against the rules for this forum.
I haven't really tested it at any range higher than what is shown in that video.

Feel free to copy that design all you like, it isn't like I made it up myself. Don't try to copy my exact stock dimensions though, the trigger is in a bit of a weird place and is quite hard to reach even with by big hands. I should have done a bit more research on that before getting over-enthusiastic with my saw.

Good luck with your build, remember to check thread dates before posting in the future. :D
