These are the outer ring that are seen on the main barrel & the smaller ring is for the barrel end. The blue painters tape is how I manage to keep the sizing right & equal

These ring are made as the spacers between the main & end barrels. They are cut from PVC coupling pipe connectors. They are placed over each other unit they will fill the gap difference between both barrels.

100_57051.jpg

To lighten the forward weight of the blaster I've shorten the pipe and have marked out the parts you won't see and will cut out slits to even lighten it more. You can see one of the internal spacer rings in this pic.

Adding the detail for the breech area of the blaster. Using modelling styrene. I also used bog to fill gaps & to form the profile from stock to breech.
