Well, I basically took this idea and ran with it.

I updated it and fixed where he left off. It works well and its fairly light depending on what kind of PVC you use.

Step 1: THE GOODS

*1* Pocket knife

*2* PVC slightly larger than your barrel

*3* PVC 1" larger than your barrel

*4* 2 PVC reducers that fit your PVC

*5* Drill with a dremel bit

*6* Paintball marker

*7* Cotton balls

*8* Black plastic spray paint

*9* Sand paper

*10* Hammer

*11* PVC cutter

*12* Hacksaw

Step 3: ASSEMBLING (part 2)

Firmly grasp your PVC Cutter and begin cutting the tube about 1" from the reducer. Make sure it is as straight as it can be, if not it will affect your accuracy.

Step 4: ASSEMBLING (part 3)

Take the drill and equip the smallest bit possible. Now, take the pipe and remove it from the reducer. Next, CAREFULLY drill about ten holes in a straight line, twist the PVC and repeat. Do this about six times.

*as I said before, be very careful when making the holes, our bit broke and sent a tiny peice of metal hurdling towards me and stuck in my arm.*

Step 5: SANDING

Take your sandpaper and wrap it around a stick. Shove the pipe over it. Move the stick up and down thus sanding the inside of the pipe.

Step 7: Stuffing

Take about 20 cotton balls and tear them in half. Then shove them between the two pipes by any means necessary.

 hey u could try steal wool that worked for me. 
do you think its better to have the cotton really tight or loose

I packed mine really tight, but it loosens up over time.
Do u think that an insulation foam would work?

Eehh. Im not positive. The cotton is so the air can disperse over a larger area than just out of the barrel
