I meant that it isn't all that simple to build as you suggest it is.. there are other simpler designs which doesn't involve electronics..
in fact if you use electronics you can build anythign with just a QEV valve, solenoid spool valve and a blowforward bolt

do you think they will let me play with it?i mean in paintball fields

how would you feel playing against some guy with a homemade pb gun made from PVC ??

I've quit my quest for full auto.
The power I've come to like so much takes vast amounts of gas to achieve when you go full auto.

I'd rather have 5 repeatative shots at full power than 30 at half.

Somehow it kept disappointing me.
The best (most satisfying) full auto cannon I've made was in essense a cut down version of a marble cloud.
That was fun, but to todays standards not very powerful.
But back then I had never shot over 350 psi..

So you are just electronically triggering a sprinkler, combined with a blow forward? Basically you are having a semi-auto gun electronically rigged for full auto. The design itself is NOT full auto.
Most PB fields will not allow homemade guns.
