    That is the projectile?!?!! holy crap that is HUGE!!

    no that is a picture of an airsoft 40mm grenade

    Those airsoft grenades are frickin fun; Grenade launchers always are.

    They're also frickin expensive to get about 40$ plus a 150$ launcher  and un-reusable.

    no im pretty sure they are reusable.

    They way I would do this is by drilling a series of holes and then using a wood chisel to take out the rest of the waste. Don't forget that PVC pipe is relatively soft and woodworking tools can be used on it.

    i just used a jigsaw for all my pvc cutting needs

    First, I draw with a marker where the bolt and the chamber will be. Then I drilled each corner and then a series of holes. Good Luck ;)

    try typing in 25mm pheumatic sniper rifle for a clearer pictures and easier steps

    im almost done one of those
