This was my "standalone project" vortex design:

Only lasted a few seconds at 110 psi, total capacity was around 2 litres. For all the effort involved carting around a huge enough chamber for a worthwhile number of shots, you might as well invest in a HPA/CO2 bottle and regulator.

i mean you can have an air chamber, not hooked up to a compressor though.
heres an idea:
Make lke a six pack of 2litre bottles... hooked them up together.

How long would that last on estimation? (12 l, bout 2.5/3 gal i think)



I dont need it to last that long, becasue mine and my mates skirmishes are normally 1 on 1, in his or my backyard and they ast a few minutes each.

2 litres lasted me a good 4 seconds, we can extrapolate that simply to 24 seconds with your 12 litre setup - but again, this is going to be very bulky and not ideal for skrimishing, all this for performance that will be no better than a commercially purchased AEG.

Propane tanks might be good for this gun, too. Just mount it upright so theres no liquid propane in there and you're on your way, free of cords or hoses. I hate hoses.

Menards has a really little (not too little though) compressor for $100. You might want to check that one out. I guaratee the pump runs every time you pull the trigger on a cloud though. Paintball tanks (the nice big ones, 4500 psi 68 ci) are about 200-250, I used to be on a semi pro team and have one of those and a steel 3000psi tank with a reg if you want that for about $100. I would go with a compressor if I were you, though.

Yeah sounds like you could use a CO2 tank or even a whole paintball or CO2 bb gun mechanism. Spud
