Thanks for reply....looking to build a "top" quallity one......would just buy one from cold steel but the two peice kind of scares me and Id like the 5 foot model. I just thought someone would know a common used metal pipe or whatever that is the exact size ID as the cold steel 625 models. I have a metal lathe and I think I could make some cool add on's,

Just got my 2 piece 5 footer, Franky. For $37 it is totally awesome. At any price it'd be awesome I think.

Don't know why you're concerned about the 2 piece.

Shot many times, both seem to shoot about the same as far as power goes. On various trials, one seldom outdid the other as far as power, as often they tied.

I'm sure the 5' may be a bit more accurate, but at 36 feet, I couldn't tell much diff.

I love'm both.

I was just thinking I'd have issues with the threads or something not sealing correctly on a two piece. Never dealt with Cold steel customer service either as far as fixing a issue with one. Might be the best idea though....seems like any kind of quality material/tubing cost more than a ready build one. Looking like two options for me...go real cheap or buy a CS commercial one.

Concerning the threads...they are very very small and you have to twist and twist and twist, to get them tight on both sides/ends.

I thought something was wrong, since I kept twisting and it still didn't get tight. But you just have to twist for a long time. So seems

to me that leakage wouldn't be a problem. I think they engineered it this way for that possible problem.

I got the 2 piece 5' from amazon for $35 and the 4' professional from Midway USA for the same price. Each place had the other BG for about $10-15 more. Midway has shipping rates that make it less desirable unless you bust $49 so I added accessories and darts to the order.

0.625 is standard 5/8" I.D. tubing but Cold Steel tubing is going to come with a smoother bore than mill run tubing.
