Ok, before anyone gets mad at me and starts saying "look in the 'Where to buy modding materials' because it just says 'any hardware store I can think of'. My hardware store doesnt sell PVC and no one actually says where to by it. I have found a shop online that might sell it but I would like someone to give me the all-clear before I go and waste my money. I have Posted this in the homemades forum because this to make homemades like a snapbow and pumpsnap (tho if anyone could say if it would work for streamline barrelling that would be good! :) )

It is sold in most hardware stores in America, is there a UK version of a home depot, or lowes nearby? I would suggest sending a PM to ThatBritishGuy, and see what he says on the subject

BritNerfMogul also lives in the UK and might be able to assist in finding PVC as well.

Don't worry so much about what other people will allow. Throw your own wars and kick your friends' asses until they all want one.

What do you mean by wrong ID? I'm pretty sure UK pipe uses 12mm instead of like 1/2"

Unfortunately you, like so many others have fallen foul of the darn metric system.

Basically in the UK, we only really use two sizes of pipe in domestic plumbing, 15mm and 22mm. Unfortunately neither are any good for nerf unless you plan on using massive darts. CPVC isn't available in the UK either because we traditionally use copper pipe instead. There are however other options such as this. Buy in bulk though or you'll really get stung on the shipping.

If you need advice on nerfing in the UK, why not try Britnerf, the Queen's favourite nerf forum.

If you can't find any you may need to order some modding materials from McMaster-Carr. They do have pretty good deals there, it doesn't cost much but I'm not sure on shipping.

McMaster-Carr will not help this guy because he lives in the UK. McMaster-Carr won't even ship to Canada unless you are some megabusiness.
