Marbles vary in size, just make the barrels interchangeable so you can have a wider range of things to shoot.

...you either:
1) search
2) measure a marble and look up the pipe IDs
3) Take the freeking marble to the store with you

Goddamn, I'm getting tired of this question.

Using dollar store marbles, I use a 3/4" cpvc barrel. I'm not sure of the size of the marbles but they're the regular looking small cats eye. There is a little blow-by but it's not considerable. I put a few layers of duct tape in the breech end of the barrel before screwing it in, it grabs and holds the muzzle loaded marble so it wont roll out. They shoot out hard and mostly straight and only cost a penny a piece! -Lp
