I'm Canadian, and I can attest to the fact that there is a severe deficiency of NSF-PW PVC in local hardware stores.

There is, however, heaps of galvanized steel and copper pipe- use that.

Or you could find a plumbing supplier, but that's more trouble than it's worth, imo.

i found all 3 I use on mine at home depot, it really just depends on weather or not the particular store carries them, obviously the one I go to does, but they are only SCH40 rated to 120psi, but i only use mine for combustion, dont use em for pneumatics, but they also have sch40 abs, as well as 4" everything... GL hope you find your parts :P
Why shouldn't I use it for pneumatics?

Because 120psi is not a very big safety margin if you are using your gun at 100psi or so.

I went to Home Depot today, and I found 4" PVC! Maybe since th last time I went was so long ago, they didn't have it yet, or it wasn't in stock.
