Pressure Rating for Brass Fittings

Unread postAuthor: littlebro05 » Sun Aug 16, 2009 2:11 am

Long Time no Post,

I've been busy with school work, but I'm going to get back into it soon after the final year is out :D.

Anywho... I was planning to make a compact rifle that could fire multiple shots using small projectiles about 6mm or less. And so I decided to make a Brass Fittings air chamber by just combining a whole bunch of fittings to eventually make a small air tank...

I was then going to buy a 50 dollar shock pump to pump iit up to 300-400PSI~ and plink to my heart contents.

But the question is that can Brass Fittings hit a high pressure without it exploding?

It's Nerf or Nothing.

Don't start crying when I play this as my hobby, Paintball, Airsoft and Nerf are equally good hobbies, except you can play Nerf in public. Good day! Hmph!

Brass will easily hold all the pressure a shock pump can put out. Anything up to 700-1000psi should be perfectly fine. After that you simply have to check.
