Im not sure about 1/2" but you can get pressure gauges at any hardwear store. or automotive store. I have seen 1/8 inch and a 1/4 inch but no 1/2". You could just use a reducer to go from 1/4" or 1/8" to 1/2".

I have also not seen pressure gauges with 1/2" NPT, only ones with 1/4". I got mine at Princess Auto, and I just used a 1/4 x 3/8 bushing to secure it into my system. But I'm sure if you look hard enough you'll be able to find a 1/2" one. Call around to local hydraulic and pneumatic suppliers/distributors.

Are you sure you need a 1/2" one? A 1/4" NPT thread looks like it's half inch.

If you have a central near you look in the isle with sump pumps. Every central I have been to has sump pumps in a isle which also sells pressure guages 0-100psi though. BTW maybe you should change your display picture people on this site don't like when people on this site act like spudguns are very very very dangerous get it? Maybe you should change it to a nice snowy wolf hehe.

You can tell how awesome a cannon is by the pressure used.
