Having a hard time finding spudgun parts in the UK? Find a good seller of pressure rated pipe in the UK? Then post about it in this thread.

http://www.airlines-pneumatics.co.uk - Great site to get Qick-Exhaust Valves and other pneumatic fittings from.

http://www.uksgc.co.uk - UK spudgun forum.

http://www.pisces-aqua.co.uk/pipeshop.htm - one of the only places to get pressure rated PVC in the UK, good range of fittings but abit expensive postage at £15.

http://www.irrigation-supplies.co.uk/in ... oductid=78 - Sprinkler valve for UK.

If your getting chased off a police dog, try not to run through a tunnel then onto a small see-saw then through a ring of fire. They are trained for that!

No good :(

I cant seem to find the correct parts anywhere! Im not interested in making a pneumatic gun. I want to build a standard combustion or 'hairspray' type. I did make one but the 'cleanout' cap at the end screwed over the end rather than into the end and where the pipe went from 4'' to 2'' there was no tapered reducer and I think that both those reasons together helped it blow apart when I fired it!

So I need: Decent cleanout end, 4'' to 2'' reducer and good type of ignitor (perhaps bbq clicker if they can be bought as spare parts??)

Please help!! even if you know of a USA store that will ship cheap to the the UK. Other wise ill have to pay for one to be built in the US and shipped here :(

No fun! thanks, k

Why do you instead on putting that emoticon at the end of every post?!

That store is pretty expensive compared to others.....

http://www.kiowa.co.uk/Products/Pipe_Fittings
The main supplier of pipe to UK spudgunners, it seems (those who know about it, anyway).

http://www.koicarp.net/pvc_plumbing/pvc.html
another supplier, i just can't spot where it tells you which class they are- it just says pressure pipe.

http://www.bes.co.uk/products/139.asp
copper and malleable iron pipe supplier, if you don't have a B&Q/wilko/plumb centre handy. (if you don't, wtf where do you live? ;))

http://www.directplasticsonline.co.uk/home.php
plastic rod and sheet, for whatever you need it for- ammo, pistons, etc.

http://www.city-irrigation.co.uk/acatal ... folds.html
another supplier of sprinkler valves- it just doesn't seem to sell you the size... :?
