Today i went down ace and scouted out potential barrels. I found an almost perfect match, 1/2" SDR 13.5 PVC. It is thin walled but it is NSF-PW and rated at 315 psi. Although schedule 80 3/4" would have been better I believe it will still be safe. I made a true bolt system using the 1/2" pvc and 1/2" CPVC. At 60 psi GGDT predicts a paintball going 500 fps, which is fast enough for me, and a safe operating pressure IMO. However, I may wrap the barrel in duct tape or electrical tape to prevent any nicks that could weaken the PVC.

Thanks! Anywhere between 45 to 80 psi is the norm.
