I will probably just use a modified tee slipped over a hole in the barrel.

The porting through that is a bit small for a good large-bore cannon so I'd make a nice golf ball cannon.

Marble guns suck! They are just so small and wimpy.

It seems with all your experience you didn't get to see one powerful marble sniper. A marble rifle, with 300 psi of air behind can fly very fast and do a lot of damage.
