First rifle.

I am almost done, I am going to modify the sprinkler valve in just a few minutes. I will be getting a screw in schrader valve from Ace hardware in a little while. Excuse my french, but after a few f**k up's I have almost completed the air tank for the gun. It is a backpack air tank, and is attached to a air hose with a quick connect/disconnect which is attached to the gun. I think this should work fine, just need to build up the rest of the looks for it. It currently looks like a WWII flame thrower, and my mom nearly had a heart attack when she thought I was building one... So yeah, its a pretty sweet gun, already scared some neighbors with out and actual shooting involved. I will try and upload some pictures some time soon.

Being French, I don't see the relevance really :shock:

My wife would love me even more if I built her a flame thrower... but I'm afraid she would use it and make a neighbor's hot dog!

Yes yes! Photographs and roasted damage pics :D

Orbits are the same as Rainbirds... unless you bought a jar-top and not an inline?

Yeah, flat top... No bleed valve, so it was a little confusing for me...

Hey guys, just a little update, my dad is taking back the valve today, and getting the other for me, and also, I will be ordering some schraders for the air tank. I will try to get some pictures up, but my computer is getting pissy about it, so it might be a little while.
