With the right size pipe in a female adaptor for the piston, it could be put in as an assembly with a removable plug. My Mouse Musket 1 inch coaxial uses this as well as my Dragon with a 2.5 inch barrel and 3 inch piston.

Attached is a photo of the breech open on the Mouse Musket. This would work in a T.
