Hi guys,

Just finished up a few new ones. They are made from aluminum, and are all .62 cal. I managed to get some

heat shrink from a friend of mine and that's what is on the outside of all but one which is spiraled electrical tape.

Mouthpiece is pvc, heated up and flared over a wooden dome for shape.

I decided to make some different lengths as you can see, so I have a 2, 3, 4, 5 and a not yet finished 6ft pole

that will be bamboo outer shell.

Anyhow, thanks for looking.

Turtle.

Thanks guys.

Aaron,
Little did I know but I have a huge bamboo supplier right here in town so my plan was to grab some, split it down the middle, hollow
it out if it needs it, slide the alumin in and reseal. Not sure how it'll work out but going to try. I also want to make a bamboo quiver
of some sort.

Thanks for the good suggestions. I'll take a look at what they have and see what options are avail.

An impressive collection. I like the idea of having various lengths. I've always avoided that because I wanted to shoot the same size BG (5-6 feet ) for consistency but I think I see the advantage of a shorter barrel and well worth exploring.

I really like shooting the 5 and 6 foot pipes. A little more cumbersome and heavier but good power and
accuracy.

Yes, but it's going to be heavy. Just with the aluminum, tape,
It's a bit of a beast.
