Nice job. That looks like a Steyr .50 HS sniper rifle (picture below).

It looks great, the only thing you could really improve is the stock could be a bigger diameter pipe and the turns and corners slow the air down slightly but not much to notice power wise. Great stuff keep it up.

Hey really nice work i love it

I had the same problem, when i did was make 2 pvc washers that fit between the barrel and the heat shield. They are quick and easy to make and they don't require alot of pvc. The washer can either fit inside the heat shield or over each end of it, depends what you think looks better.

Well done on making this absolute beauty! I love how realistic it looks too. Its breech load, right?
I think a scope will complete the cannon though.

EDIT: found that its bolt action, sorry.
