therory for a pneumatic gun

Unread postAuthor: redalpha11 » Sun Aug 24, 2008 6:40 pm

i am new to pneumatics guns and i am thinking of builfding a cheap gun. but any way here i s my theory. i am thinking of having 2 chambers separated by a ball valve. you fill one chamber then the other then you realse the blall valve in the middle to have a lot of air pressure. look at the picture any idea if this could increase my total air pressure in a gun or not.

the pressure will stay the same, but it could work for multiple shots fairly quickly

You should really swap out the ball valve for a sprinkler valve. No point in having all that air stored up if the projectile's gonna be gone before all the air can all be dumped.

Just me opinion :roll:

nothing new, but a sound concept, for a significant number of shots I recommend a second chamber at least ten times as big
