I can't seem to get my pneumatics to shoot a 2" spud as far as my two largest combustion cannons ,even using the same barrel a 5' by 2" ,they interchange, If I had a faster valve I believe it could be accomplished.
When shooting smaller object like marbles ,rubber balls,lug nut etc. the pneumatic is 4 or 5 times more dangerous.
The pneumatic might need a longer barrel to deliver its full potential.

get that guitar out of your ass. pnumaticscan be more powerful but they are expensive and more complicated where as a inexpensive combustion can be much more powerful than an equally expencive pnumatic

its been answered how much psi to use, but who do you tell how much psi is in there. Will the pump you use tell you or can a gauge be added. If so How do you install a gauge to this gun.

there is a button up the top of the screen ok. it says search. its between rules and chat. the reason you mite not get many replys is because these questions have been thoroughly answered many times before. just try a search mate. not having a go at you but thats wat its there for ok.

and if you are a 'noob' i think it would be wise not to mess with compressed air. because there is alot of danger involved.
and if you don't understand a sprinkler valve why ask how to make a semi auto.

try a search. then just make a very simple pneumatic cannon and work up from there. if you start trying to make a semi auto you will spoil your fun with it because it would be very hard and confusing.

good luck

Jello Mold try the search and the Wiki their both very helpful. Also if you are looking for something to paintball with see this post:

and this site:

Also search for the Spud Gun Tech Center Archived here on spud files its very helpful.

I already told you, I'm a n00b, don't know how to do any of that.
