I have no idea what you'd use for ABS, just go with PVC, it easier.

3/4" for sure, 1" diameter barrel is HUGE for a paintball. 3/4" is still a little big for the paintball, but it still works. Well, check out Mcrowleys link cuase there are a few different types of 3/4" that may fit better than others.

Where can you get 1" or 3/4" ABS? That would help a load....

What i'm saying is the I.D of 3/4" ABS is different from the I.D of 3/4" sch 40 PVC, so a paintball may not fit in the ABS. I don't even know the I.D of 3/4" ABS because you didn't say if it's pressure rated or DWV.
