i think he's been brainwashed by those idiot websites that say ABS is better. ABS is only good for combustions, using it in a pneumatic may mean death. using pressure rated PVC and fittings, and solvent welding properly will be fine for a pneumatic or combustion launcher.

I think people think ABS is stronger because it is thicker than PVC but it is thicker to compensate for its weakness. And PVC show weathering eaiser too.

it will, though if you're using a 12 gram adapter there shouldnt be any problem, filling from a bulk tank would be different and NOOOOO ABS wont work, unless you want it to explode
