Looks good. A spring loaded ball valve isnt the best, but it will work. I would have soldered the Bike tire valve (schrader valve) to a brass hose barb so it could be threaded into the PVC cap instead of epoxied.

It should be a good gun.

This is nice. The aesthetics set it off for ya. Does the chamber interfere with shouldering it? If it does, you've left room to go with an over/under design if you like.

Also, I noticed you've left room for a valve upgrade. Spring loaded ball valves are fantastic, but they can be awkward sometimes. I'd recommend a sprinkler valve if you can get them. If you do go with the sprinkler valve, be sure to check out this link for anything and everything you need to know with them.

Keep up the good work, friend. And welcome to Spudfiles.

You could have used a clamp in schrader valve. You just drill a hold, insert the schrader from the inside of the cap, and put on the nut from the outside, but this should work for you just fine too. Nice gun, it looks pretty cool! And it should work great!

Another Aussie member 8) , theres a handfull of us on here mate= I use the same aluminium barrel on my 9mm semi Auto,did you buy the aluminium tube from bunning's as well?.

Ball valves are way too clumsy to fire a gun with any sort of accuracy,Id change it it a sprinkler valve or Quick Exhaust Valve but yeh nice gun regardless......
