Looks like it will hold just pls dont use this in paintball. It is unregulated and it would be unweldy in the brush. But hey on a scale of 1-10, 1 being do right junk, 5 being average, and 10 being increadable. I would give you a 6.5

Thats pretty cool, but I think you should get a bigger chamber. Or cut off some of the barrel.

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

i think i should cut off some of barrel aswell. and why only 6.5. for me (not smart) it was difficult to make valve as complex as it is, it would definatly be a 7. and 8 if it were painted.

Screw aesthetics all together. If it works, it works.

Good job mate :)

Which gun is this for you? Third? Great job on the piston/diaphragm valve, if so, it's really compact and well done.

Looks good, but you really dont need to use a sprinkler valve to pilot it. What did you use as a piston? Also, why did you use 1" pipe for the chamber? Have you fired it yet?

You dont have to cut any length off of the barrel, as doing so will decrease your performance.

GGDT is estimating 638fps at 100psi, and 584fps at 80psi based on my (educated) guess as to the dimensions of your parts. Your inline paintball gun will shoot much faster.
