Oh and this is the last question. Would a 3'' chamber work?

You know, there is an edit button if you forgot anything.

The question about the crappy little car compressor:
No, they don't work. I have 3 similar ones (yes, three) and hooking them all up together still doesn't work.
And a 3" chamber? Damn, you talking BBs or marbles? You'd have to have a HUGE compressor to be able to use a 3" chamber well.

No not really. A cloud needs a pretty good continous air supply. I have a 2gallon compressor and it doesn't keep up with it very well. You would have to fill up a tank or something to hold a lot of air.

Your post right after mine made mine very confusing. I wouldn't even try a 3" chamber.

I asked because I was going to be scrapping a piece of 3'' pipe with an end cap on it. So even is I made a little chamber like this to hold air, it wouldn't be strong enough?

It would last a couple of seconds but there wouldn't be any power in it.

Check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3koopxh ... ed&search=

This guy built an airsoft cloud BBMG powered by a CO2 setup in a backpack.
I'm sure it was an expensive project. Probably as high as $300-400, depending on where you live. But damn, it'd be awesome to have one.

Peace,
Pete Zaria.

That's Mr. Plow, and Pete, that's an Inline Vortex, like the ones I make, not a cloud. He doesn't like the T shape people have to put into normal vortex blocks.

Not enough volume. Hook it up to a 7 gallon carry tank and try that.

I've only seen 11 gallon ones at Home Depot. You can make your own backpack type one.

How much would it cost to make a backpack one?
EDIT: So I could pump up something like this and use the stored air?
Sorry abotu the url...
