Hello World.

Hi All,
I've always had a soft spot for pneumatic everything. I've been shooting PCP rifles for a good while now, and your standard pellet guns previously.
A couple days ago I just got a bug from somewhere and started searching for pneumatic potato guns....I was shocked and surprised how well developed the idea is.
So lot's of reading ahead of me...


Thanks.

Don't give me to much credit. I'll ask you all to spoon feed me some information when I get to crunch time :oops:

Speaking of that...Has anyone here actually fabed a cannon that runs on raw air (like 200+ bar HPA)?

Yeah....looking at the sprinkler thing...But I want something super cool, and I have access to a machine shop and people who know how to use the it. So it would be a waste to get a sprinkler valve I think. I'm still just reading posts and trying to figure out how some of these valves operate (and what that means for me)... new vocabulary and all. I figure I'll tinker a bit and get the concepts straight in my head then go for the real deal...



Cheers all. Life is good.

Check out my thread for a blow forward valve. You could check that out and try and get something similar built. Any questions, just ask me.
