Is that ABS or painted PVC? I would like to know where you got the 2.5" pipe. I went to Home Depot who told me I was crazy.

Home Depot won't sell 2.5 pipe. You'll probably have to order it online from BC Arms here

It looks like a GREAT first cannon. Most people don't put that amount of work into their first creations...

BTW, some of those fittings aren't pressure rated, but that is A-OK for a combustion cannon. Just telling you before you decide to go building any pneumatics.

That's a nice first cannon, better than mine I must say, though that doesn't take much now that I think about it. So for right now how do you measure the propane?
