3/4" CTS CPVC (available at most hardware stores)
1/2" SDR 13.5 PVC (a little harder, but still not very hard to find)
or 3/4" SCH 120 PVC (great fit but near impossible to find)

As zorrow said 3/4" Sch. 80 PVC works just fine. Of course it is not quite as good as Sch. 120. I have fired with both on the same gun through a chronograph and the difference was a mere 10fps. You shouldn't really be able to tell the difference between them, and it is a hell of a lot cheaper and easier to find.

Get .68" tubing off of mcmaster... best fit you could possibly hope for. Its about $15 for 6', and you can use a 3/4" compression adapter to connect it properly. Its a bit expensive, but worth it in my opinion

I beleive that that tubing has the exact same ID as paintball barrels. So yes it would allow any differences that a normal paintball gun could handel.
