When I use a pipe-cutter on softer metals (such as copper) versus hacksawing it, the hacksaw always takes less time. Whenever one is cutting a softer (PVC, brass, copper) pipe with a pipe-cutter, always take your passes in increments. Don't just dial down on the cutter hard to start with. That's just stupid.

Whenever I use a dremel it never comes out straight and I hate sanding the jagged peices off.
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Iím just not the angel you knew.

As far as your hacksaw problem, sounds like you need a new blade. Brass is soft enough and the tubing thin enough that it's a fast job. I don't like using a pipe cutter because of the "lip" problem (which could also mean my pipe cutter is just dull). If you end up with one, though, you can get rid of it by flaring the tubing end back out. I just use a needlenose pliers (take a look in my pump breech writeup to see what I mean.

no they dont
Dremels work great.
no it would do nothing there id a gap between the turret and the muzzle. it would be like an unneccesary leap of faith
Speaking of brass piping I was futhering the modifications to my maverick and was wondering "would it be wise to make/put a brass barrel on the front and if so would it increase range or accuracy?"

I wouldn't use pipe cutters, because it takes more time and energy to fix the lip, than to get out a power sander and sand down the edges. (tip: When I'm finished, I take a hammer to flatten the remaining edges, coming straight down on the top, to flatten it, without bending or denting the pipe.)
