What do you think guys?

Don't worry guys, I have all the parts but have some questions!!!

This is the ball valve with its extensions

This is the pressure chamber i'll be using.


for this pressure chamber, how many psi will it be for its max?
And If I use a standard pipe, drill a hole in a end cap, put some o-rings and finally add a tire valve and screw it in the elbow will it be better?

This barrel i'll be using:


barrel attached to the ball valve


for the barrel is it good or If i use a standard pipe it will be better?

and finally, i'll be using plastic airsoft bb's for the projectile.

Should I put a kleenex tissue inside barrel, put the bb's inside and fire or making a piston valve is better?[/img]

It says 10 bar, meaning you can safely take it to 150 psi
