Just go for it... PVC is a lot stronger than you guys are giving it credit for (I dunno about the XP 310's internals though, but the whole gun has a shell for a reason :P).

I routinely pump my WBL up to 120PSI and nothing bad has happened yet (slight cracks in the glue, but I did a shoddy job to begin with, and this is after countless launches).

Sounds dangerous. duct tape it, then epoxy it, then paint over the epoxy.Then put it in the old pc
(might want to tape it twice just in case)
