Dante's bazooka (Arcana Famiglia)

So I'm going to start working on this cosplay. Most of the clothing I should be able to find at consignment shops and alter. The bazooka will likely take the most work. At first I thought to use PVC for the main part of the tube but that would add a considerate amount of weight. I've worked with chicken wire in the past and it has an inclination to stay in a tube/spiral/some-multiple-of-pi shape so I could try that with paper mache but I kind of worry about carrying that around and having it break.

Any ideas?

Here's what he looks like using it:

Find a store nearby that sells carpet or linoleum on rolls, and ask if they have any empty rolls. The cardboard tubes they use to roll carpet up on would be perfect, and you can get them for free! Chicken wire and paper mâché would probly be heavier than PVC in the long run too.
