Here are some choices from McMaster Carr
36" barrel (Part #8978K143): $6.29
72" barrel (Part #8978K595): $9.71

Both of these barrels have an ID of .43", and an OD of .5". A perfect barrel.

Make sure to buy a compression fittings (part #50915K328, for $3.17, will work perfectly. It has 1/2" NPTF threads)

You order them from mcmaster.com
Don't worry; mcmaster's shipping is pretty reasonable.
