It will work but in a larger cloud chamber, you will lose power due to gas expansion. some sort of seal/detent at the breech will rectify this
100 psi is probably too much if you want to use this for airsoft. Remember that the power of BBMGs lies with their concentrated weight of fire, which you have to consider apart from individual projectile strength.
In the case above, a single BB does not have the power to penetrate the aluminium plate but the repeated impacts in a short time in a small area are enough for the stream to chew through.
