can you make them threaded for the tip of a hammerhead barrel?

If I knew what the threads on the tip of hammer head barrels were then maybe but when you get into threaded "rain covers" your treading on a very very thin line.

Got me yesterday. Looks phenomenal. Great job tjd!!!! Now to work on the absorbing materials. To keep the rain out.


Maybe an air port out the back cap to release air pressure from inside?

I was thinking the same thing. Thinking about drilling 2 or 3 small holes to let the sound of rain flow back, since it probably has to go somewhere.

I was actually thinking of drilling some bigger holes in the barrel to let more of the pressure into the cover before the ball leaves the barrel... just don't know if I could put a dremel to a DW.. lol

Just got mine. Great work, TJD! One question, the fit of the end-caps in is thing are very tight. Since it's made of CF and Nylon, I want to be careful to not gouge anything. Do you have a "best practice" for removing the caps from the tube?

I twist mine while removing it and haven't had a problem yet. The orings should be what is tight.

I've tried pretty hard to do just that, BL75, I've got Indian-burns on the webbing of my hand. On my copy the caps (o-rings) are just in so tight that that solution isn't getting the job done. They don't even budge. I've been thinking of lubing with mild detergent, like Dawn, Pledge, or maybe some Pedro's Bike-Lust. But wanted to check if there's a purely mechanical solution before I start applying any kind of liquid as a lubricant, even a CF-safe one.

Asked the same question.

From Tom:
"Yes the only thing holding them on is an oring. You should be able to whack them out using a dowel rod and a hammer. I chose to not use lubrication when assembling so I was sure that when they got out in the real world they would not accidentally come off but if you want to make them easier to remove once you get it out a little grease goes a long way."
