No, but if you are looking for the same internal diameter, you can try sleeving 3" SCH-40 inside of itself by cutting a band out of the inner piece length-wise. Test it out with a scrap piece before using a whole stick to make a barrel as I haven't tried this myself yet.

I've noticed the oddball PVC diameters are going away more and more. Looked for some golfball pipe the other day and there's just nothing there locally.

Note that any significant seam left from the cutting/sleeving method may have a hop-up effect, so the seam should be placed at the top or bottom if possible!

My local supplier of SDR-21/26 piping happens to be a very old hardware store, which sells it for irrigation since I used to live in a semi-farming community. They have sizes from 1" to 4" IIRC, although no oddball sizes like 2.5".

Stubborn old people will keep it available for the time being, but I think as a community we need to be looking towards better materials than thin-wall PVC. :wink: Although I am guilty of using it quite often...

I'm actually looking to rebuild this using a better material than PVC, due to it's extreme practicality (stuff it in a duffel bag and it goes anywhere), but I don't want it exposed to desert nights, so I'll probably be switching to ABS (with the foam-core bits sleeved in solid-core couplings) with a cut-and-sleeved barrel...

Unfortunately I'm only here for the next two days before I drive to California, and I don't even know if they're open on Fridays anymore... sorry.
