yes modding the sprinkler so it opens pneumatically makes the valve open faster, thus yeilding better performance. it'll alo get rid of any honking if you have that sound.

Yes This is an actual silencer and it does help but I just had some leftover pipe and was bored one day. Its very comfortable to shoot but I can only get one shot out of it but it works very well. Thanks Guys

That's a great looking gun! My only suggestion is (big surprise) mod the valve, it'll increase the performance, and will pay for itself eventually. (you don't have to buy batteries)

Good point Potatoflinger, who likes parting with cash for stoopid batteries!
Great looking first gun XXX :) Maybe a lick of paint would be in order?

Don't Mod the valve!!!*

Lookin good. I'd give it a shot of paint and maybe a longer 1/2" barrel.
That's an interesting reducing bushing setup you have there... I assume the hardware store had everything but 2"x1" reducers? ;)

*You should mod the valve, but I couldn't resist contradicting every single person that posted here.

I die a little everytime I see fittings connected by a pipe that's a tad too long and they aren't flush.

No matter, great first gun. I would suggest modding the valve though, but at least 9,547 others have/will say it in this thread.
