portable piston valve

Unread postAuthor: newbmatic » Fri Aug 01, 2008 5:45 pm

First, remember that I'm new and I'm a newb so go easy

OK well i have kind of thought up a piston valve that unlike other piston valves is that the valve isn't the whole gun. instead it is a little tee piece that you can screw a chamber, barrel, and a blowgun or ball valve(to release air).
but, my problem is I'm not sure what some of the pieces are called( even there aren't many, btw I don't have that many hardware stores nearby) so please by all means improve the design and help me

thanks in advance

Umm...you just described a piston valve.

The most common piston valves (co-ax, chamber seal, barrel seal) don't take up the whole gun, they only take up a tee (or other) fitting like what you described.
