it is quite simple really, there is a chamber with a pressure gauge - then the modded 1" sprinkler valve supporting what looks like a air duster trigger and then the barrel

Simple but really cool i like it

is the ammo loaded through the end of the barrel it looks like it to me

a laser sight would look really mean obviously in a good way :D !!!!!!

Gonky check your private messages. Just in case if any one wants this gun I actually have one that looks the exact same its just not glued together (better price on shipping when its more compact). I was going to make it for someone else and it fell through. So if you want to buy it send me a PM.

Animal: Yes the ammo is put throught the open end of the barrel (top).

I *think* that the outlet on those things is 1/8" NTP, in which case you could simply use all 1/8" fittings or or a reducing bushing, although I'm not sure it is 1/8" NTP. Either way, he appears to have attatched it using a hose & hose clamps.

his handle is still just a blow gun, CH makes there blowguns the same, except theres has a long nozzle with about a 140* angle
Edit:sorry, I didnt notice there was a second page, and on the posts I saw they were asking what the handle was.
