I believe 1-1/4" sink drain extension pipe (find it in the plumbing section, and look for a piece that is about even diameter throughout) fits the stock dimensions of the plunger tube well and will only require machining of a back plate for the spring rest and front plate for the bolt seal.

Buying plastic tube to the specific dimensions of the stock plunger tube is the most reliable option, but will be obviously harder to obtain.

1-1/2" drain pipe is closer. 1.25" is pretty narrow.

I am fairly certain that a 1-1/2" sink drain extension would work for this. I know it fits well in the shell, and fits the plunger head (my replacement one, at least). I just haven't put together my tube replaced LS, yet.

The CS replacement LS head fits 1.5" sink drain super nicely, but is a little big for the stock tube, which is why I guessed 1.25".

On the other hand, 1.25" matches the stock BBB plunger tube decently, so I guess 1.5" is the way to go.

I have never tried this before but ballzooka plunger tubes are almost the exact the same size as longshot plunger tubes you could trie it.
