my pipe is 3/4", the inner diameter is 0.69 inches, a paint ball is 68,
so wadding is not needed unless u want to have your gun to reach illegal speeds, as my friend had.<br>btw did the 12g co2 blow up?

CPVC has a smaller ID than normal PVC, that's why 3/4" CPVC is great for Paintballs, and SCH 40 3/4" PVC is a too big and you need a lot of wadding.

Ok, I don't belive a 12gram will fit into 3/4" CPVC. With me, they perfectelly fit into a SCH 40 3/4" barrel with little tape, so I think CPVC would end up being too small inside for a 12gram.

Yes you can connect CPVC to normal PVC, they have the same OD's (Outside Diamaters). However it is reccomended that you don't just glue them directelly together without using cement that is made for both PVC and CPVC. Some people say it's best to just use some threaded fittings so the CPVC barrel can just thread onto the PVC portion. This is becasue CPVC and PVC have a different chemical makeup, and bond together differentelly.
