2.5" PVC Pipe

Unread postAuthor: Spuddin » Wed May 16, 2007 1:45 pm

Hi guys, i've been building spud guns for a couple years now mostly combustion. i have just made my first pneumatic mortar with a 2" (interchangable) barrel but i want a 2 1/2" barrel for tennis balls so i dont have to use a wad in a 3" BUT i cannot find pvc pipe in this size anywhere in the state of Oklahoma! any suggestions where i can find one? thx, btw i will post a pic after i get'r done. :? :?

Update: besides the spudfiles store i found a electrical supply place a couple hours from here, i can prolly get the pipe shipped for free cause i know a guy that works there. anyway thx for the help.

yeah you should know that 2.5" pvc is hard to find which is why this site's official store (BCarms.com) sells 2.5" pvc barrels as well as other online buissness that sell spud gun stuff
