Ditto. They're complaining over $4 :shock:

I personally pay about $134USD for 18' of 3".


One of the main reasons we in the US love to make our big PVC guns...PVC (and ABS) materials are dirt cheap here and easy to work with, relatively speaking of course.

BIG ditto there muffin. Spray, if you built this gun you've been showing us out of Cell Core, chop it up and start all over...don't shoot it again, just chop it up so no one else can use it.

Run, don't walk, to your garage, fire up your saw of choice and get this done...pronto. [Salvage your cleanout cap and BBQ ignitor.... :wink: ]

Looks like you need to read the forum rules and also do a LOT more research on spudguns. First, use the edit button instead of double posting.
Then go onto the spudwiki and read every page that is relevant to you. Then go to the combustion showcase and look at a few cannons for design ideas and tips. Every how to guide I have ever seen stresses the importance of rated pipe, so I think you might wanna invest in some glasses too!

Yes, the gray cable PVC will work for combustions. The fittings however aren't deep enough though to hold air safely...ie. no pneumatics unless you find pressure rated fittings.

Clear pipe is way overpriced, but the demand for it is limited typically to the medical and food processing industry...where price is usually no object.

Or....every bit of that PVC can be replaced for about $10 and re-assembled in about 30 minutes. Wouldn't that be a better option for you? [yes]
