You can get away with a 4 metre barrel if you wanted, and remember, smaller chamber at higher volume is better for power ;)

I'm a laboratory analyst for a pharmaceutical company, not strictly connected to spudding but we do have 110 psi on tap around the plant and lots of lovely fittings :)

It would be filled through the blowgun.

When you fill your car with refined oil remember that it has been paid for with blood and guts, some from your own countrymen, most not.

Anyone have an idea what type of socket is on the back? (where the blowgun is screwed into) it's odd.....it's half pipe, half fitting to be able to fit in there the way it does...
