That's just an aroused blowgun, how is it going to help?

You suggested that the larger flow rate improved your effency to 2ft/lbs of force. However it lacked that erginomical feel of a blow gun. This blogun has a much higher flow rate. (it can be found on mcmaster)

Does it have a higher flow rate from the valve or from the nozzle? Also, note that in the ball-valve strafer, the BBs actually flow *through* the ball valve, that's what makes the difference in performance - the BB chamber is alreadt presurised.

I misunderstood, i thaught that the bb's were loaded into the barrel like a conventional gun. This valve has more than double the flow of a standard blow gun, however I dont think a bb would fit through it.

can you link to it on Mcmaster - I'm still not sure if the increased flow is through the actual valve or due to a wider nozzle, in the latter case its no more useful than an ordinary blowgun.

Yeah, I think flow is increased in the valve, otherwise it would be useless...


mcmaster wrote:(1) Standard and (2) High Thrust Pistol Grips— Have an increased-flow nozzle, hang-up hook, cast aluminum body, nozzle, and extension. High-thrust blowguns have a unique internal design that delivers 50% more air volume and thrust than the standard thrust model.


sorry, I had trouble linking it, go to mcmaster and type in blowgun.

It says that the high flow model flows 32cfm, compared to the standard blowgun that flows only 11cfm.

Jack, I was looking through my notebook of noob ideas that I had 3 or 4 years ago and I actuallly have a concept drawing of a ball valve strafer, because I didn't have an air compressor then.
Great minds think alike?

Yeah, it's a pretty obvious solution to the low chamber pressure issue when you think about it ;)
