i made one of those pvc ones where you pump the air into the bottle and it fires one at a time but nothing half worthy to play a fast game of paintball in my backyard

that's a pneumatic gun, now go purchase a paintball gun so you can have a marker that doesn't blow up

You want to make a blowforward spool valve as your very first? Nope.

We are giving you this advise because we have the experience. YOU NEED to start slower. A simple semiauto can easily be made with a self sealing valve as long as there is a steady supply of air to it.

But you also want to use high pressurized air (or CO2). Now there is the safety factor.

To build something like this and to be happy with it, will end up costing you probably more than $50. Brass Eagle makes semiauto paintball markers for cheaper than that, and there sole purpose is for backyard skirmishes.

And I have to ask this - I don't care what type of paintball marker you have. They just don't blow up for no reason. Please explain to all of us what your friend was doing to his paintball marker that he shouldn't have been doing.

If you really want to make this look through the pneumatic section to find what you want to make...

You shouldn't be discouraged but it will be very hard...
Btw if you do make it, it will be expensive, inaccurate, and heavy.

If that's the case, he should have said so (I suppose I could have read more into his username, but oh well).
