Hey spudders, I just found all these spare parts and wanted to make a stupidly powerful piston gun with what I had around and using low pressure (160psi max) and so I came up with this. The parts are just screwed in to give it it's shape. Reckon I should make this kitten pur? 8)

Sure. I would definitely turn that blow gun in almost any other direction than the one it is now... :shock:

Well, as long as you have the parts there, you might as well put it together.

Out of curiosity, what material are those pipes?

They look like abs or painted PVC, but due to the shape of them it probably shows that they're non pressure rated. If they are, great! Go for it.
