They can hold much higher than that even, what I'm wondering is if the pressure differential around the diaphragm is enough to actuate the valve at such a low pressure.

And apparently, it is...cool.

Dude. The safest way is to cut your barrel off, cut all of your fittings off, and rebuild a new cannon with the left over pipe.

Please just listen to us...

We've all had experience

Go ahead, blow your head off

Throw the death trap away, screw the 70 bucks you spent (Should of done a little bit of homework first)

Research a bit....and build a new one

Nah kick that thing up to 300PSI Dude! Then you can call it a bazooka.

If you couldnt tell i was being sarcastic (sarcasism doesnt translate well over the net i hear)

I know what you should do, stick some explosives inside and blow it up safely! (wear eye protection)
