Its alright, it would have been nice is the stock was blocked off.
I agree jack, it is a bit on the ghetto side...


Cheers,

JB-Weld is your friend :P Looks like crap if its not painted but it usually does the job.

Did you use teflon tape? If you did try tightening the valve on the threads a bit more.

yes i did use teflon tape. and i tightened them as much as i could. its very tight i cant undo it with my hands lol. i might just use some araldite or something else and go around the threads. i take it up to 50 psi and its fine to shoot though.

taken it up to 80 psi today. put it on my bipod and wrecked my ears haha because the marble was so tight and i havent pushed the barrel through the T so the pressure shot the marble out and blew the bipod apart(not glued, haha)

even shooting a blank at 80 psi is loud as. i would make a silencer for it but not allowed Sad

Shot bb shell at 40psi in my room and it caned me on the neck. missed the target because of a bit of recoil to the side, and a load of BBs got me on the neck. split BB's everywhere and an anihilated cotton wool ball scattered over the floor.

THIS GUN IS AMAZING. very powerful considering other guns ive made.

compressed her up to about 40psi, popped an airsoft bb wrapped in tape through 2 sides of a coke can cleanly at about 5 metres.

Try putting a C-clamp on the sprinkler valve and twisting; this should work, but unscrew the blowgun first so the clamp doesn't bend it on accident and stretch the threads holding the blowgun in.
