These are 6” diameter PVC sewer grade pipe, designed for burial, and about 5 feet long. The end caps are simple 6” caps (non-threaded) and are not glued in place yet. The pictures show my Mosins ( A M44 and a M91/30) and an AR-15 beside a tube. The guns are used only as a size reference, no suggestions are being made here! The two Mosins will fit in a tube together without any disassembly. The AR would require the removal of the pistol grip.

Here’s a web site that sells these things (expensive!) and has some ideas…

Bury ‘Em Tubes web site - http://www.preparednessequipment.com...index.html#top

While I am not suggesting anything here, maybe some of you unlucky boaters might want to take up a new hobby like PVC pipe art and the fun hobby of GeoCaching!

Fluid Film is good stuff - I got turned onto it last year when we took the dive into the deep end on Personal Watercraft (PWC’s) JetSkis and Waverunners. Fluid Film is LANOLIN - great for blocking moisture (but, like anything ‘wet’ will attract dust, sand, grit, etc.). It’s on the shelf at LOWEs and every garage oughta have at least one can on hand - a zillion uses.

Guys spray down the entire inside of their pwc hulls - including the entire exterior of the engine block and all plastic and rubber systems - after a thorough cleaning and rinsing (especially after being ridden in salt or brackish water) and Fluid Film keeps things looking (and operating) like new for decades!

HOWEVER, it’s viscocity is quite a bit thinner than actual ‘grease’ and therefore, when talking long term storage I honestly don’t know how anyone could beat the RIG mentioned (and linked) earlier.

A small (very small) jar of RIG did more than 50 rifles, shotguns and handguns for me (with a surprising amount of the jar left over!) on a collection deep-stored from 1986 through til 1992 and that stuff put a protective coat on all surfaces (including a well laden patch run down each bore and inside each chamber) and mags - everything metal - that was like an impermeable armor coating against moisture. I used q-tips to apply the RIG into all those machined nooks and crannies too tight to get a rag-wrapped-around-a-finger into. Awesome stuff! (And, as already mentioned, a can of low odor mineral spirits, a rag and a toothbrush (and cleaning rods with some caliber-correct patches of course) made cleanup 6 years later a pleasurable task!

I use fluid film on my truck and van. Spray everything with a kit sold on Amazon. Keeps body rust to a minimum and nuts and bolts are easy to take out when you have to. Never used it on firearms though.

There may or may not be an 8" PVC pipe available at your local hardware store, which may or may not accommodate more complete rifles.

The pipe ends up being the cheap part. The end caps become pricey. Threaded end caps even more so.

Actually the pipe can be quite costly, but yes, the ends are considerably more per inch. Threaded is not needed...PVC cement works very well. Or so I'm told.

Theoretically, if a screw cap is used, the article inside could be removed without digging up the whole tube, or enough to allow cutting off the top. It would also be reusable.
