shouldnt u have put a female compressor bit on the chamber instead of a male, so u can detach the compressor without the air comming out??

i believe thats a schrader valve walrus, but maybe he does like i do, i have a ball valve with a male QC on one side and a female QC on the other, it works well when attatching anything really, because sometimes it wont lock right, and it will end up just leaking air instead of connecting right, it also means that i can save about 4-5 bucks on every cannon, female QC's are expensive

Its not a schrader valve but it's a female nipple to connect onto the compressorhose.
Its easy to fire, when the chamber is filled->open ballvalve to fire->close ballvalve->put ammo in->open ballvalve->

You are correct, a sprinkler valve would be better here And unless they are using a different thread standard there you'll be able to attach your sprinkler valve to your pipe system. Unfortunatly, shipping will be a real pain if you can't find a dealer over there, and have to buy them from the SGTC.

Love the look of it! Looks better than PVC, has that steamengine, steampunk look. Nice paint. What does it matter if it's heavy, as long as you can lift it? :)
