It hurts me to see such a large valve on a chamber so small. :(

it hurts my wallet to make a bigger chamber at the moment, i am building this gun for portability and to gain as much power as i can from propane pressures mixed with compactness.

This thing will be a beast when you get a decent chamber. A setup that comes to mind is two 5 feet chambers parallel to each other then the barrel on top. At 220 psi with a big chamber and long barrel should give some respectable velocities with a golf ball.
