I agree with Skypig -- pick some up, they're around $10ish last time I checked. I still think it's possible to reproduce these, but it's going to be a pain in the butt. Here are my thoughts on the matter: - Take some glass tubing of the appropriate diameter. Heating it over a flame close and finish ...

but as far as I can see from the photograph the remainder of the weapon does not seem to be anywhere in sight...
