If you happen to be using one of Throwing Chicken's gun kits the tubing shown here will be too thick for the front handle construction. TC's tutorial is a massive help but those who arent familiar with aluminum dimensions most likely end up here looking for proper diameter, length and wall thickness tubing information.
wouldnt something like this be more appropiate for TC's kit?

Im sure this seems like a stupid inquiry to some folks...my searches pretty much lead to this thread so it seemed like something that would need clarification for future new builders.
The Rear Handle is made from "Thin Wall" Tubing
A: 1.25" (1-1/4) OD
B: 1.01" (1-1/10) ID
C: 0.12" (3/25) Wall
From the top of the handle where it meets the gun body (at the weld line) it measures 8.5" (8-1/2).
