How many shots per hours. You could look into how wyz modded his blow gun on his and pilot the QEV with it. Then you would get more shots per fire extinguisher. A 3 way plus QEV would cost at least thirty.

Clem, I am getting two 1/4" qevs for $30, so I have one to mess with, and one to keep normal. I am simple going to buy a 1/4" male to male adapter and hook my blowgun up to the other side. Hopefully that will work, and I wont have to deal with anything else.

Little update, I got a receiver and a G3 airsoft magazine. I am modifying the magazine to fit into my mauser receiver. Next up is to devise a way for the loading of the bb's into the barrel.

The difficult part is how you are going to shoot more than once with a qev and a normal blowgun :roll: the rest are easy :wink:

that wont be semi, i think you should save up same cash while your read up

all that will do is dump it all at once, what you need to do is drill a hole in the piston and add the spring, then pilot it by taping the blowguns like a hammer valve.

So good luck then, but if your qev is self close, you don't need to drill a hole in the piston, just use a hammer valve as a pilot or use a hammer to action the blowgun. In my gun actually I need a pretty sensitive qev to make it functional smoothly :wink:

I wont be getting the qev for a while. It will be about 2 weeks, if not longer. I am going to work on a burst disk cartridge, like Davidanis. So until then, I will see about making the barrel and what not.

Why do you need a qev at all for airsoft? I doubt you will get nearly as many shots as you want if you use a qev and blow gun pilot, I would just wait and get a single larger (1/4") dcv

if your using a real qev you will need the hole because air wont go from chamber to pilot.
