Marker gun improvements

Unread postAuthor: Sticky_Tape » Wed Jul 23, 2008 7:13 pm

After making my serviceable Marker Gun http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/video-serviceable-5mm-marker-gun-t15388,vote,viewresult.htmlI was already thinking of improvements I could make couldn't think of anything.
I am wondering if anybody has Ideas for improvements I could make on my next Marker Gun. Paint, Names? ANYTHING I just need Ideas.

You can tell how awesome a cannon is by the pressure used.

Well thanks VH-man hat means alot really it does. I do have the abilities but I don't have the pipe for the barrel. And basicly I think that there is always going to be more power to be found in marker guns larger barrels, more air tank volume you know.

I personally dont think a presta would offer any improvment.

yeah i was thinking that also. maybe wrap it in an electrical tape or make it thinner i really dont know there is not much you can do with small coaxials. i guess you could add a pistil grip and some kind of trigger if you want it to look more stlylish but less portable

That's what I might do then.

Probably not with my pump I clamp a hose right onto the shraders and I don't think that setup would work with prestas
