Nah.

A nice 1m length of 15mm copper pipe polished up makes an excellent blowgun all on its own. Can't say that for an adjustable spanner can ya?

well, there is really no "most important" part of a gun.

a valve wont do you any good without a chamber, or barrel,
and vice versa.

Any kind of metal tubing, (be it copper, aluminum, steel, brass, etc.), because they make far superior barrels than standard pipe sizes.

Yeah, K&S brass tubing is sold in 32nds of an inch increments, and can hold lots of pressure. great for precision barrels for marbles and stuff............. airsoft bb's are a little loose but hey, it works. 19/32 tubing fits batteries nicely.........
O, and i forgont another thing. THE QEV!!!!
