Very slick unit there. Are you planning on spud ammo or something else in particular? You'll have to keep the PSIs a little high to make up for the small chamber, esp if you want to shoot anything with any significant mass.

I might try to compact that blowgun somehow closer and rigid to the gun and do away with the floppy hose triggering.

Overall fine job!

I have fired Golfballs (with wadding), Custom fitted Ice Shells, Play-Doh, Snow, Water (A lot of recoil), Cardboard Tubs filled in with cement, and even one of those long green Gopher things that is in the shape of a rocket... The hose is setup like that because It will be housed in a pistol grip later on that isnt added yet.

The sprinkler valve with different barrels and chamber will be used for our RPG8-TWS that me and my friend imortal are working on... This current setup is just used for fun at the moment.

When the RPG8-TWS is made, me and imortal are going to use it for airsoft and its going to include a break action barrel, custom Airsoft Shower grenades and Foam RPG's. But thats another project in its own.

Excellent paint job. May not be the most powerful around, but looks damn good. When I first saw it it reminded me of something from the bond movie Goldfinger, though at first glance it reminded me of a sex toy for some reason (I think it was the gold paint that caused it).

Like starman said though, It would be better and look better to make the blowgun rigidly connected to the valve instead of having that hose.

Great job overall

yeah this is why I tell people when they have plain non-painted PVC guns that they should paint them otherwise they are just another spud gun.

What gets me is how easy it is to paint. it only took us a couple of hours and mayby 5 bucks worth of cheap spray paint to do it and it looks awsome. Sad thing is its not done yet! We have more eye candy to come...

@david, I got the flame stensils ready for the tank so we should paint it this weekend. And seeing as how you named it golden black jack I think we should incorporate a card theme. ♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠

The screws were separately painted gold while the top was painted black and the bottom was painted gold... gave it a nice touch.

Very Nice looking cannon, clean.
It will be a shame when it gets scratched :(
My resent pneumatic was painted camo, but it has tiny little bits of white where the paint scratched off (I haven't even used it yet!)
I hate imperfections like scratches

I like it, any particular ammo in mind? For some reason I like all the reducers.
