You can use it as a hybrid chamber, just not the full 6' of it. Cut a smaller length of it and have it threaded at your local hardware store. You can then use standard pipe fittings to close it off...welding shouldn't be necessary that way.

alright thanks. didnt know a hard ware store would thread pipe but thats kool or i could sell it the cheapest steel pipe on mcmaster was $77 for 6 feet. I am not sure how I could cut it good enough for it to be threaded but I dnt think it matters. And it might be stainless steel I dont know it was laying on the ground on this trail kinda shiny but kinda not.

You should be able to cut it with a hack saw, just use a fresh blade and take your time with it and cut it straight. It's probably not stainless. Rather it sounds like zinc coated conduit pipe from your description.

For a real world hybrid, 10x or so or less, it will be fine.
