Just go get the PVC at DIY stores.
The PVC may be a different color (grey instead of the white the most cannons here use) and maybe you'll have to use the metric system for the pipe sizes.
So you would do good taking a 100mm pipe for chamber and a 50mm pipe for the barrel.

i can find the pipe ok just cant get the right endcaps and reducer to fit all the ones i found are the same size as the pipe so i would need a straight adaptor to make it fit which i dont really want to do. also has anybody had any experience with using a slide valve at the end instead of a screw-on end cap?? like these http://www.koicarp.net/pvc_plumbing/ima ... valve1.gif
