Step 13: The Barrel
At my local Home Depot, they conveniently cut approximately 2' segments of pvc pipe, so i grabbed a few to have a few different barrel lengths. the one that I have in the gun right now is a little longer at around 27".
At the end of the barrel, I have a 1/2" pvc coupler which I cut 4 notches lengthwise to the center with the dremel's drill attachment. This is just for show.
The thicker piece of pvc is 1-1/4" pvc pipe that is friction fitted over the orange muzzle that we cored out earlier. It's about 5" long and purely ornamental. If i were to go into a nerf war, I'd probably take it off in order to open the breach quicker. I originally planned to drill holes into it line on a .50 cal US machine gun, but I kinda like it solid.
