yeah it'll work, but don't know if it's worth putting on a scope if ur using a ball valve, sprinkler would work better if u want it 'more' accurate.

Don't bother putting a laser/scope on there if your using a ballvalve (unless it's just for looks, of course.) because while you try to open the valve quickly you will disrupt your aim, making a scope/laser ineffective.

You could fix this by using a different valve or by springloading the bv.

Its a waste of time and money if you use the ball valve, like inonickname said it will mess up your aim when you open it.

Nope, looks fine. But you'd probably want a larger chamber and to make a sprinkler valve.

several major issues. First of all, the silencer will have no effect what so ever. For a suppressor to do anything on a pneumatic, it must have a large volume, on the order of the volume of the chamber, preferably much larger.
Second, using a ball valve for the main valve will work, but you will not get particularly great performance. Try your hand at a modded sprinkler valve
