if its STRICTLY the piston and not for the actual housing or any other part of the gun, its should be fine.

maybe stiffin it with some epoxy, but its probably unesssasary.

"physics, gravity, and law enforcement are the only things that prevent me from operating at my full potential" - not sure, but i like the quote

It may break though, I've had PVC fittings as pistons and they can break pretty quickly, but it shouldn't effect your launcher.

Make sure you have a good bumper, I shattered 2 pistons so far (the one in my pic) because I forgot the bumper. :lol:
