i agree with redcoat my first pneumatic was made of dwv i took it to 110 psi many many times and it did not fail. possible because i used pressure glue and it was only 40mm pipe but still be careful and exercise due caution.

Looks like a cool cannon, it will be better once it is safe with a pressure rated chamber though.

It does have a pressure rated chamber, just a very fragile one.

Sorry, perhaps I should rephrase my sentence to "a high pressure rated and stronger chamber"
Sorry for the misunderstanding.

C batteries are just about the best ammo there is for 1" Sch 40. You can also put small fins on pieces of 1/2" PVC after filling them with concrete or something.
