You used cyanoacrylate glue and epoxy (both of which adhere very poorly to polyethylene soda bottles) to hold this gun together? Then you used duct tape to repair it when it blew apart? Wow, you are going to be in a world of hurt when that (sad excuse for a) gun separates back into its original components with your extremedies in the vicinity.

I dont know if I would trust an air chamber held on with super glue/epoxy, I would prefer a threaded connection. Your gun looks like my second pneumatic, ball valve and 180 degree turn to connect the tank, except your's is breech loading while mine is (crappy) muzzle loading.

Thanks Balled of NJ, I needed a good laugh… but I can’t talk much, I once used duck tape to hold together a water rocket launcher I rigged up out of scrap parts, needless to say it blew up. (No one was hurt, I was the only one out there and I stood in the barn with a door between me and the launcher.)
Anyway, looks good, use PVC solvent on the pipe and plumbers goop on the bottle.

OK, normally I'd say that duct tape can fix just about anything, but that's idiotic. That's a terrible thing to use to fix that. Go buy some pvc cement before you kill yourself. Don't seal it with cyanoacrylate (superglue) and don't use epoxy on it for that. It's not meant for holding pvc together.
