you will need to glue a female adapter a few inches past your reducer, then on your barrels, glue male adpaters, so that they can be screwed into place

P.S I'd go with a 15"-16" chamber, but 12" is fine! :)

Prelude I belive that it tells you how to do it in the how to section. Gonky is right you do use a female adapter to make interchangable barrels.

dumb question... but does it matter which, male or female, you attach to your chamber/reducer? I haven't seen anyone use male, they always use female... any reason for this?

Well, I did it because my cannon was rather large, and I didn't want to bump the threads on anything (and mess them up). Now, I'm just kindof stuck with it, because I don't want to have to make a whole new set of barrels.

Females are also a bit more expensive, and most people have more barrels than launchers, so it's cheaper to use females on the chamber.

It's also possible to get stuck using it involentarily, by using a bushing that is threaded on the small diameter.
