Looks good, my only suggestion is to add a spring loaded mechanism. You should get a noticeable power increase.

I agree, I made a ball valve airgun with a spring attachment, the power was epic, even for a PVC chamber and a tiny ball valve.

My idea is very basic though, with a bit of working it could become a really epic idea. :D

Yeah I know that is where I got the idea from.
His woodwork skills are obviously superior, but bearing in mind I was really low on wood stocks and the only wood I could get with 8quid was crappy hardwood plywood and I had no decent woodworking tools seeing as they were all being replaced at the time it I think its a pretty good gun. :D
