need help with pneumatic launcher

Unread postAuthor: nathan549 » Mon Mar 22, 2010 11:23 am

hey im new to the forums. i was just wondering in this picture how is the sprinkler valve connected to the chamber? and also wondering if instead of having the air gun directly mounted onto the valve could you run a tube from the valve then on to the air gun to have the trigger in a different position? the plan i have in mind isn't the one pictured but the chamber connection will be in my idea, i just need to figure out how thats connected. just looks like a hole cut out then glued in but want to make sure.

if you scroll down the link it's explained in very good detail ;)

You can do this, many people do, but it will have a slightly detrimental effect on performance.

The extent to which it will affect performance depends on the various parameters (pressure, chamber volume, barrel length etc) of your launcher but most likely you won't notice it without using a chrony.
