Nope. No detents or anything like that required. In my experience the ball won't move *at all* unless you put a bit of pressure behind it... But so little pressure is required that you can blow it through the barrel with just your lungs.

It does. Both SDR-21 and Sch 10 have 1.90" ODs... Thus why I wanted the ability to weld (previously mentioned). I just took a 4" nipple of the 2" sch 40 and welded it around the end of the barrel. Voila, I had a very strong, threaded golf ball barrel that fit into 2" NPT fittings.

Interseting. Are there any stores that you would know to carry it?

Any steel supply place should be able to get it. McMaster also carries it. But no, you're not going to find it at Ace Hardware.

Yeah, I actually just found out today that my dad has some connections to some metal factory thing. I really don't know exactly what, or where, it is, but apparently my dad is like bffs with the owner so I maayyyy possibly be able to get something from there
