I don't know of any, and here's why:
Exotic_stuff_$ > PVC_$
They are tough materials to work with.
No gain in preformance, it's just lighter. (which is going to make the recoil worse)

Ok, here is why you dont make a connon from Carbon Fibre

1. some of it isent fire proof

2. to make 1 from it would cost about 600 bukz

I know this post is old but there is another reason NOT to make a cannon from carbon fibre, when it breaks it breaks and the super sharp pieces would go flying everywhere, they would be extremely dangerous, i know this because i use carbon fibre hunting arrows and on one shot the arrow must have had a fault in it, it hit my taget and burst into a bunch of different shards. I was around 20 ft away and one piece managed to find its way into my leg, just imagine what would happen if something larger were to explode next to you :shock:
