The only thing I can suggest to improve the gun aesthetically is to get rid of the electrical tape. Find something a little more aesthetically pleasing. And, for a new trigger, maybe a pressure washer handle? Or, a 1/2" metal ballvalve connected to your pressure chamber?

That is the most horrible spelling of voilà I have EVER seen.

However, improvements are always good. Any noticeable performance increase?

haha-F*CKING-ha, people, give us a break, i don't exactly use that word in my every day speech.

Its more like; "G'day! How the F**k are ya?" "good n yaself?" "yer not to bad mate"

:wink:


haha yer performance increase is very noticeable, i'd say equivalent of 200psi at 110-120 now, whats that like 80% increase?

this piston would weigh probably 1/4 as much as the old one, i have also noticed there is not as much recoil from the piston opening and slamming into the back of the housing.

Peace non-Aussie speller's :D

Believe it or not I have occasionally come home after a night out, completely fishmuzzled on an assorted concoction of alcoholic beverages and recreational narcotics, and in the same way one would call his ex-girlfriend, logged on to spudfiles. However, unlike your fello Aussie rna_duelers who would be *this close* to a slurred "I lovjve you guyjjjz -hic-" *clumsy hug*, i type v-e-r-y slowly, mindful of my reputation :D

You will find spelling mistakes though, that's how you can tell I wasn't all there :D

Lmfao, then roll on the floor, recreational narcotics! You really should give up those aqua dots or bindeez as they are known here in oz.
