Looking for the shot and powder tubes, with baffles and caps if possible, for a 800B. Maybe someone who has replaced there tubes with the larger replacement tubes, and base of Jim Skeel. Let me know what you have, and price. Send a PM.

Thanks, Jon

You don't want Acrylic, you want Butyrate. I have tons of baffles. Had 100 made.

Problem with Butyrate is that is comes in 6'-10' lengths and costs about $1.30 an INCH!

ACrylic is brittle and cracks, whereas the Butyrate is very flexible, and is what the originals were.

The original drop tubes on the shell feed systems WERE acrylic, but I insisted that they change to Butyrate to accept the stress in their bottoms. Now they are Butyrate.

I thought that they may be to brittle, but I can't find Butyrate tubes in 2-1/4" ID. tubes without having to buy a box of them.
