10 round feed tube length (stupid question)

Ok gang, I'm soon to be making some custom carbon fiber feed tubes for my phantom, and I only want the traditional 10 rounds of splattery-goodness in my gun.


I need one of you to do me a favor and reply with the length of a 10 round feed tube, from thread-end to the other end of the tube, with the feed cap removed. I'd do it myself but my only feed tube is a 15 round'er


Prefer that information in typical units of measurement, like inches, or centimeters.....no quark-lengths, or parsecs please.

thank you!

Well, a 0.68 caliber paintball is 0.68 inches in diameter. Stack ten of those end to end so they're touching, and the total length is 6.8 inches. Maybe round it up to 7 inches total?

If it makes you feel any better, I was already in my work room with a 10-round tube and measuring tape in hand before I realized the math was easy.

And a carbon fiber tube sounds really cool.

Jiu-jitsu- I'll make you one if my prototypes turn out alright. I'm likely making two slightly different ones for myself first, but if they turn out ok, I'd be willing to make you a longer one.

Would you be willing to pay the material and shipping costs? probably would top out at $25ish per tube (possibly less if I can keep getting the tubing at the same price with free shipping to get it here). The $25 = the $16 material fee with whatever is left ($9) for shipping to you when I'm done with the detail work. No profit to me on this one, since it's still an early prototype run at best I wouldn't feel comfortable asking for that.
