    Scratchbuild barrel measurement...

    Hey there,

    Is there someone who could tell me what is the most accurate size PVC pipe I would need to make the barrel, taking into consideration I will be putting wipers on there.. ive seen on a pic on TK409's site that with the wipers its 2 inches, but I dont know what the barrel itself is..

    If anyone can get me the exact sizing I would be in much appreciation

    If I remember correctly, when i received my webslinger kit, it came with a 2" PVC pipe. I then hit Blastech for the accurate rubber t-band strips and added those on. I could do some measurements once I get home later...LMK.

    Hope this helps somehow...

    Stay safe,

    Tim.

    ? My EE-3 is a kit I got way back in 2004. It's a 'webslinger' kit that's since been discontinued. Upgraded my scope a few weeks after gettin that.

    Here's a pic, not very clear though...upper top left hand corner.


    The main body, greeblies and initial grips were made out of resin, as were the 'wiperblades/inverted t-rails'. The stock connector was machined aluminium and the stock was made from real wood.

    I went out and upgraded the grips to real world Webley grips, swiped the 'resin wiperblades/inverted t-rails' for some rubber ones from Blastech.com. Scope was sourced and found online, as close to screen accurate in shape and size but for a fraction of the price.

    Hope this helps.

    Stay safe,

    Tim.
