Semi Auto Ideas for a 3/4 inch Piston Valve?

Unread postAuthor: 1nxtmonster » Wed Oct 02, 2013 3:41 pm

Hi guys. This is my first spudfiles post. I have recently built a piston valve paintball gun. It is a 3/4 inch piston valve with about a 100 cubic inch air tank. It works great, but I want to get multiple shots off of one tank. I could do a ball valve to fill a secondary chamber from the main chamber, but I want something that lets the gun be completely semi-auto. Maybe like an air restrictor between the piston valve and air tank? You help would be greatly appreciated.

Take a look at the new pneumatic sniper in the show case and you can read how I would make it semi auto

What Gippeto said, you can make it easily and cheaply with off-the-shelf parts ;)

Would a ball valve before the piston valve that fills a small "firing chamber" work? Could you just crack the ball valve and let it auto fill?
