You don't need design plans for that!!!

It's exceptionally simple.

Then dont do it, Research it and after a few days you wont need plans. We wont spoon feed you but we will help you. Why do you need plans? You dont need plans for a solenoid valve(there are threads on how to mod them) you dont need plans on how to glue and prime pipe. So why do you need plans? Who cares if its not the same as his, make it your own,change it around a bit, you dont have go by his size pipe.

There are only five main parts to that marble gun.
1. Barrel
2. Modded Sprinkler Valve
3. Blowgun
4. Chamber
5. Pressure Gauge

Nice, I like this gun! It looks classy but you kept it simple, and black =) Could use another handle in the front, unless its small/light enough to hold in one hand... Nice job man.
