I have not had much luck in finding a tube of any material the size of a BB. I am about to cut one out of wood!;)

Has anyone had any better luck?

BB = .177 cal "4.5mm"

How about just getting a super-cheap crossman pistol (I've got a junky one here, so disassembled to test) and yoinking the barrel out? They're <$20 at Big5 last time they were onsale and I saw them in the flyer. I've had it since I was a kid...

I really wish I could give you rep for using the word "yoinking". I need to spread some around.

Replacement barrels for the airsoft gun are relativly cheap. If you get the stock 6.8mm bores. Any good airsoft shop has them in stock.

They get expensive when they get into the precision "tight-bore" barrels. The ones around 6.4mm.

With the tighter-bore "upgrade barrels", the need to run quality airsoft pellets is a must. And propper gun-cleaning habbits must by practiced offen.

I was looking at some crap-tire mini electrics the other day. Might have to get one just to disect.
I 'm so far away from thinking about weapons, yet it's on me mind

If you can go to an archery/hunting/sportsman store, carbon fibre arrows are a really good fit.

That's for 6mm though, Plague and Fry, right? He's looking for .177 bb's, I think.

@Jes : :D One of my favorite "words". It sounds just like the sound made when you're forcefully reverse engineering. In fact, I even find myself saying it when I'm gleefully "repurposing" something that was particularly difficult to take apart. You get down to that last little binding point, gleefully rip the piece out and go "YOINK!" :)

It's the oldskool "p0w3D!"

Thanks for the great Airsoft ideas, however Adrenalynns right i am looking for a tube for "Hardcore ammo".

I have also found a perfect fit for airsoft pellets! those cheap ball point pens at walmart make perfect barrels. Although I wouldn't have thought about an arrow shaft, Good thinking FryGuy!

Ill keep my eye out for a bb gun pistol :veryhappy:

Thanks guys!

This is the one I was talking about: http://www.airgunsbbguns.com/Marksman_1010_BB_Gun_Pellet_Pistols_p/mar1010.htm

~$22 from the first site that showed-up in Google.

Now that I have a model number: $19.74 here: http://www.sportsmans-depot.com/products/Marksman%201010%20Classic.html (http://www.sportsmans-depot.com/products/Marksman&#37;201010%20Classic.html)

$19.99 here: http://www.pyramydair.com/cgi-bin/model.pl?model_id=626

Just don't buy it for any other purpose. It doesn't really qualify as a "bb gun", imho. You can catch the bb's out of the air from ten feet and not even feel 'em. At well under 200fps, it won't even dent an aluminum soda can at 8ft. But I still have a fond spot for mine. ;)

Actually - mines a substantial piece of metal. I could go grab it and throw it on the scale, but I'd guess it's several pounds.

For a split second I thought you ment the barrel...lol You haven't taken it apart yet?

Ah yes. Forgot about the "hardcore" class.

.177 bb's...Man that'd sting. I got some buddies that I'd love to chase, with a mech sporting those.

Are there going to be a feet-per-second rating / rules, for the bb-type weapons?

Just wondering.

Nevermind (I just read the rules)

There are cannon kits (http://www.battlersconnection.com/html/firecontrol.html) and cannon barrels (http://www.battlersconnection.com/html/cannons.html) from RC warship combat suppliers that might be the right size. Looks like 3/16" ID, 0.1875" brass tube would work well, that might be 7/32" brass tube, or stainless or copper even.
