That valve will work okay for a pneumatic cannon. I also like the way these type of valves look as well. They make for a nice over / under. I believe that one can be modified as well.

Well, if your going to use it on a cannon, most people take the solinoud off the valve, and replace it with a blowgun for faster air release.

Isn't it neat how all three of us just posted at the exact same time.

@CannonCreator: It takes a little bit more than just replacing the solenoid with a blowgun to modify a sprinkler valve.

@quiggly17: But not much more. Just seek and you shall find.
