this is my first co2 gun and it turned out pretty well. it is made of pvc painted black. i haven't got the psi on it yet i need to get a gauge. it has a 1" ball valve, co2 12 gram adapter, and an another adapter to go from asa threads to 1/8" npt. i haven't thought of a name any ideas.

the white barrel kind of messes it up i will paint it

He said it is NOT too late. Yes a modded sprinkler valve will boost your performance like you wont believe.

because if u put the much stress on a pipe constantly chances are it will give out in the future. like saying u can hold absolute max, body cant take anymore of like 200 lbs, imagin some on egiving u 195lbs then taking it away like once every ten min if u shooting a lot and then like a 12hour break then having it all over again, eventually ur legs are going to give out. and musle growth isnt effective here because pipe doesnt get stronger. thats the best i can explain it

plus the ratings are for water pressure, air pressure acts much differently, if it blows, instead of the water just maybe cracking the pipe or something, the air will make it explode into hundreds of pieces of shrapnel
