Me likes.
If you can make a custom hangrip out of bondo or something, it would be uber-1337.
You might consider sawing the fitting off of the blowgun, then drilling it out. You'll probably notice the difference in preformance.

btw if anyone has the FX channel you should turn it to it..one of the best ever movies are one...the day after tomorrow..

I saw it twice. That was enough for me.
I'll stick with my eureka :)

A hack saw should work fine.
If you have any vice grips try that before you cut it. It might come loose.

slightly bigger chamber would do good for power, methinks, but nice effort.

Nice gun. I like the tiny pressure gauge. Is sch80 3/4" pvc a good barrel for paintballs?

Very nice gun! I too like the mini gauge. Keep up the good work!

No, 3/4" Sch 40 fits paintballs horribly. 3/4" Sch 80 works fine, but I would reccomend 3/4" CPVC because it fits paintballs perfectly, and I'm not sure about 1/2" SDR 21.

Best fit for paintballs:
3/4" Sch 120>1/2" SDR 13.5>3/4" CPVC>3/4" Sch 80 PVC>3/4" Sch 40 PVC

Nice gun, a good basic one, but still strong enough to have fun with. Good job!
