Don´t worry, get what you can. the max length of airsoft barrel sold here are only 630mm and bloody expensive, around 40 euro for a aluminium one, most of the airsoft guns use only uses 560mm. So 60cm it´s ok for me.


I can also get you some precision made aluminium tube, 6mm ID 8mm OD.
It's under 4 euro's per meter I believe, me and a lot of friends have used it as an airsoft barrel, it works great.

Pm me your paypal account, with 30 euro how many tube can I get?
Finished, gonna make a suppressor tomorrow, not that it´s noisy but right now the barrel looks too skinny and I hope a air stripper style suppressor can improve the accuracy a little bit more(it´s already good).
Only used 5 bar for shooting this afternoon, neighbor are at home, but even through so after adjusting the hop up, effective range was 50m, measured with my laser range finder. If I turn the hop up a bit more I could reach 65m, but because the hop up isn´t perfectly leveled (a little bit turned to the left), the bb will turn to the left during the end of the flight :oops:
Will film a video tomorrow, also use higher pressure :)
BTW this gun fits perfectly in my m4 gun bag :D

I don't have paypal, but I'm sure we can figure it out.

For 30 euro's... I'll go to the hardware store tomorrow.
I believe I can get about 5 for that money, including postage costs.

Don´t worry, there are a lot of ways, and I don´t like paypal anyway. 30 euro for 5 including postage? You got a deal :D

Looking very tasty... wyz, if you can do this sort of thing with basic tools, you really need to start thinking about getting a lathe and mill - very worthwhile investment for someone like you!

Not that I don´t want to or don´t have money, but it´s just not possible here in Portugal, the only lathe I found was 700 euro and only work for things less than 10 inches; About the mill, I never saw one for sell around here.
I did found a lot of handy machinery in China, but they were just too big for me to bring them to here :cry:

ah, nice :D
it's pretty easy to do this with online banking.

heck, may be even cheaper :D
You'll probably need some sort of barrel support tough, these tubes have 1 mm walls.

Took it to the field today, it was really nice 8) but then the regulator got a problem and the output pressure started to increase so I had to stop shooting and empty the tank :x
Also filmed short video about the basic functionality of the gun

Wow that's a very nice build... Can you give a little more detail on how the trigger works and where you purchased it? Thanks :)
