i take it your using the same length of chamber and barrel pipe?

if so, i reccomend making the barrel pipe stick out a bit, about 5 inches, so that you can attach a male coupling to the end to allow for interchangable barrels.

it sounds fine to me, looking foward to it.

just make your piston serviceable and DONT USE DWV on your piston or else your piston housing will shatter in your face. WILL.

Drain Waste Vent is unrated pipe, and is not suitable for cannon construction

no, to make the barrel interchangeable you place a smaller diameter one inside of it, aka 1/2 inch copper, so you can shoot marbles.

and your barrel seems a wee bit long for using 1 inch in 2 inch pipe or 2 inch in 3 inch pipe. i would keep it at the same length as the chamber or mabey 5 inches longer, and no more.....

Search the how-to database for coaxial barrel change. There you will find a how-to titled :Interchangeable barrels...on a CO-AXIAL.

In the top right corner is the word "search" (it is between the words "rules" and "chat"). Click the "search" button. A new screen will appear. Under "Search Query" look to your right. There should be a box. Type "coaxial barrel change". In the middle of this "Search Query" box is another box entitled "Forum". Open the drop down box and scan down until you see "How-To Database (NOT FOR HELP-ME POSTS!)". It is the 21st option. At the bottom of this "Search Query" box is a button that reads "Submit". Click that button. A new screen will appear again. There you will find the topic entitled "Interchangeable barrels...on a CO-AXIAL. It is the 8th topic down.

Hubb017, you post included words with more than 3 letters in - you might want to break it down for him......

Just make sure that all of the pipe and fittings that you buy say nsf-pw on them, that means that they are pressure rated. Do not use fittings that say nsf-dwv.
