It will run you 15 bucks maybe? And all you need to mod it is a drill and 1/4 bit. Simple and easy.

Lol plastic ball valves have to have force on both sides of the handle for it to turn, It would be easyier to use a metal ball valve like this http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/my-1st-rifle-t3571.html

Or just get a sprinkler valve for 15$ or make ur own piston valve for 10$ or less and have 2-5 times the power of any sprinkler valve gun.

As long as people are lazy, there will be a market to serve them, nothing wrong with that and hey, maybe a few bucks will filter through towards the maintenance of this site ;)

I'm no expert but I think he is trying to avoid disassembly of his launcher. Yes, a modded valve will give better performance, but I would think ye wants to keep his original theme and upgrade it using his spare parts theme.

Also answering the question above how would i disassemble a glued launcher (none of it is threaded except where the valve is)

They let a bit of air out to suck the diaphram (the rubber sheet/valve part) out of the seal and let the main chamber's air out into your barrel.

That would be a blowgun. It is a valve that opens with the push of a button. It releases the air behind the diaphragm (see diaphragm in the wiki for more infomation) to fire the launcher.

An electric solenoid does the same thing, just at a slower rate.

Did you see the link I posted earlier? It may help you do what you are looking for.
