Well the only other thing I can think of is that it is listed differently. Check SDR 13.5 and SCH 20. Have you asked the attendants at the stores if they carry it?

As a fellow canuck, I can say that finding decent barrel material around here is kinda hard. Im assuming it is plunger material you are looking for, but that is hard to find too. I have looked for it too, and have been unable to find any. This is in Toronto, mind you. Id go to a speciality plumbing store if I were you.

well the breach would depend on what it is being used for. By breech do you mean like couplered, or actaully using a breech that involves rotating or pulling a cover to line up a hole and drop your dart in. southpaw's clan website has good instructions for a breach.

1/2" thinwalled PVC is SDR 13.5, and both 3/4" and 1" PVC is SDR 21. My supplier is Lowes but I am unsure if there are any Lowes in Canada. Hope this helps.

You would have to use Carbon's gasket plunger set up and it would be much bigger. I'm guessing this is your first homemade so you should start building a SNAP. It is made by Carbon and he has a nice writeup right here. It was my first homemade and it helps you measure your level of building skills.

No this isn't my first homemade, but my other homemades were pump guns, using 3" pvc for air tanks. This is my first springer, I've seen Carbon's SNAP great gun, but to big for me.
