I took the stock barrel for the Ion, cut it with a pipe cutter and then sanded down the rough areas.  I spray painted it down with black first and then took some lettering stickers to put on and then went over with the white coat.  I then took some metallic blue acrylic paint and painted the tip.  It's really loud, and it's more accurate than the original barrel was. If you have an extra barrel that you don't need lying around, try something like this.

It would look good black with white letters

have you tried milling in designs?

and are the letters straight?  or is that just because of the angle of the barrel?

It was kinda hard to keep the letters on straight free-hand.  I was thinking of the white letters, but I decided to do it this way. And it is exactly 6"

What made you decide to go white and blue because that kinda ruins it for me anyways.

Doesnt seem to work with that body.  Put it on the stock body andlets have another look, eh?  Although I do like the name.

How does it perform??? I don't think cutting your barrel in half was the best idea.
