soda bottlesare not dangerous if you use them under 110psi
i have been useingthem for all but 1 of my guns, i love the soda bottle chambers they are cheap and they ARE RELIABLE.



Yeah, but it's hard as hell to keep them from leaking when you install schraders... :\


I made one like this but with a smaller bottle, just CA glue (super glue) the tire valve into place, its a lot stronger than the epoxy and if you do it right it won't leak, plus it dries much quicker, expoxy sticks better than CA glue to most other materials, but expoxy doesn't stick well to polyethelyene.

you should get a soldering iron and peirce that bottom of the bottle then qiukly put the sharder valve in while the platic is still hot so then it makes a plastic seal around the valve, then add on more glue

Try finding an old road bike with the outside of the shrader threaded. Then screw that into the bottom of the soda bottle.
