      Don't mean to sound dumb--But what does the nitrogen do? Keep moisture away??
      Thanks

        Nitrogen is an inert gas, in order for rust to form there must be oxygen, iron, and moisture so oxygen causes the steel to oxidize and form rust.

        I do believe that you would have to pull a vacuum on the pipe first to draw out the oxygen then fill with nitrogen.

        I'm no expert, just an ex aircraft mechanic.

            A few people I know used Pvc pipe with screw caps. Oiled their guns down and put it into pipe, stand on it's end and used dried ice vapour to fill the pipe with CO2 to expel O2.They reckoned it worked well.

              CO2 can still cause rust. Better to purge it out with nitrogen, argon, or other inert gas. Put a vent on either end and blow the gas thru to sweep out all the air.

              Brownell's sell the vapor phase inhibiting (VPI) crystals industry uses to prevent rust. RIG is still about the best rust preventative grease around or you might be able to find some cosmolian (spelling) from some surplus outlet.

              Unless you want to get into the containerand reseal I would use cemented end caps. Threaded joints are never a 100% seal - just the nature of a threaded joint.
