In The Netherlands we don't have a home depot or any of the other stores from the USA,most of the time it ain't a problem because 3/4 of the stuff we need we can get from the Gamma (Sort of an home depot) but they don't have any CPVC or petg etc. so I was wondering,does anyone know of other stores where you could get them? I had to ship some CPVC for my nitefinder rifle but it is way to expensive to ship it every time.

 

Thanks in advance,

I would try to look for architectural Aluminum tubing, as well as brass tubes.

Look for plumbing supplies or supply stores. I'm not sure what your market is like, but here in the states we use 1/2" CPVC as residential water supply lines and 1/2" PVC as (general? I don't think sinks or showers use it; might be a landscaping thing) drain line. We also use copper and are largely switching to PEX; PEX can apparently also serve as a barrel. Maybe look for electrical conduit as well, sometimes that works.

 

Also, the PETG, Aluminium, and Brass used as barrels are often purchased at *specific* sizes, where any kind of pipe is not consistent even here. I've dug through an entire bundle of CPVC to find only a few lengths that actually fit the darts. If you can't find pipe that works, look for plastic or metal tubing that does.

 

And watch out for metric/imperial issues. I've got no idea what metric pipe sizes even are, let alone which work for darts.
