2. If it fits spherical shaped ammunition, what kind of accuracy do you get at say 20m?
3. Whats the running pressure on it?


1. Not shure if I can upload vids on SF or not, probably no video until I can get around to it
2. I haven't shot a marble or any other spherical projectile out of it yet, but I can shoot a dart acurately enough to hit a man-sized target about 70-80m away
3. I usually crank it up to 150psi with a portable electric car tire pump which fills it in about 30 seconds

How does a QEV compare in performance to a 3/4" modded watermaster?

The 3/4" watermaster would open a tiny bit slower and is also a little on the chunky side and it's not designed for air pressure. The 3/4" QEV would open faster and is a lot slimmer depending on what brand you get and it is specifically designed to hold back pressure and release it into pneumatic cylinders. Get a QEV if you have never gotten one before. Fastenal is the cheapest place in the US and their QEVs are listed under "Exhaust Valves" on their website.

This gun has a very nice sort of in the woodsy look. The job you did on the stock was great, and the blowgun built into it is a great touch. It's also very clean...

Did you weld this, or were all your fittings threaded?

The chamber was silver soldered together and everything else is built of threaded and compression fittings. I didn't solder it.... my dad did because I hadn't ever silver soldered anything before and I didn't want to screw up $20 worth of copper by making a mistake.

The stock is from a toy gun stock made out of pine I believe. The dart is a bunch of cotton string taped on with electrical tape to a nail. As of late, I have added a padded front hand grip which is a towel wrapped around the chamber and then electrical taped around the towel. This addition makes the gun a little more comfortable to hold.
