Thanks for that post Gippeto! And thanks to all the others for their opinions. Seeing as everything i know i have learnt my self(no school classes at all when it comes ot metal/wood working, i doubt we have much more than a few screw drivers and a few hammers in the whole school). I will have a look at making inside threads, I doubt it would be too difficult to learn(and its easy to practise on scrap tubes and rods) and will, as Gippeto said, provide useful in the future. I will have a look at the links you provided in a moment.

As for brazing aluminium(though the company calls it welding) technoweld seems to be the best choice(next supplyer is in Belgium, so its nothing I would consider worth while).

Crossbolting will also be looked up in a second so I will not ask what it is, however I do have one more question at Brian: What do you mean by threading with an O-ring?

Thanks for all the help, you guys are giving me great information here.

P.S. @ Gippetto: I ordered a Nylon rod today for 57 Canadian Dollars measurements are 100cm length and 3cm diameter. Im wondering if it was a rip of, any way I'v ordered it, and I assume it will hold for a long time(smallest possible length is 1m), but still I would like to know for next time.

100cm, 3cm dia nylon for 57 canadian dollars? I would never pay that much for that. Look harder and you might find some cheaper stuff next time.

I think BTB meant that you can add a sort of lip so that you could put there an o-ring between the pipe and and the part...

lol I know it's hard to explain so I added a pic... you can use this method to join a pipe and fittings that have a lip like this (like most BVs).. it's quite useful as you can safe a lot of teflon tape and it allows to reconfigure the gun in seconds, swap barrels etc.
