(barrel is just for show)

If somebody already did this let me know please...

Let's start of with materials and tools:

Material:

-Several female garden hose coupler(s)(amount depends on the number of barrels you want), I use Gardena (NOT the aqua stop type!!)

-1 male gardena coupler

-Barrel matrerial of choice

Tools:
-Drill

-Drill bit of the size that it drills a hole thats very tight to fit the barrel

Ok start off with the male coupler, glue, twist or whatever, you want in the barrel, STRAIGHT (speaks for itself i think)

Then drill out the garden hose coupler's, I use 16mm

Smack in your barrel material, and you have very fast interchangable barrels

I see that it would work well, it's just that there is a lot more dead space now and what makes it better than just using a coupler and several lengths of cpvc for barrels?

A lot more dead space? the only bit of dead space is the grey male coupler.........

If you can get that coupler right against the plunger tube end, you will have less dead space than your original coupler, and it will be a stronger fit....
