It's made from a room deodorant can cut in half with tape to make it fit and some bog to make the concave face flat wiht neoprene to make it seal well.

I used a aresol can which was cut in half it was verylight and worked for a few shots but it couldnt take tomany shots and it got bent and stuck in the pilot area so i re-made a piston out of hot glue sticks melted in a tin over a low flame and pured it into a mould its a little heavy but still works very well.

I remade the whole unit added barrel support a slight paintjob shotend the barrel and lost the sprinkler valve and BtB is right the ball vavles work fine to pilot the piston.

This is the link to the upgraded cannon.
