The solution presented itself when a friend hinted me towards the gun barrels offered by a company named Oldcrow models. They offer high quality tin barrels for a very fair price and shipping is reasonable as well.
The rest is constructing my own shoulder pads and cast them. My design of the prototype lets me use it for both arms and also for all sort of weapons although it is primarily meant for autocannons. It has no ammodrums or such things which would need to be added later on but this also gives me the possibility to create convincing variations by adding powercells, ammodrums or additional armor.
