And my trigger failed for it and my brother walked past the barrel just as it failed, and it shot him in the back... No pictures, I can't afford to lose over $300 worth of parts in my room.
On to what I need to know, is there any way to tone this down without losing too much power? I still need to be able to shoot this, just with out my parents thinking its super powerful and I need to get rid of all my pneumatics/combustions/hybrids. So, any suggestions? I have thought about limiting flow, but at the same time I want to use this as an airsoft rifle, but dip the ends of q tips in wax to give them weight to fly further.
there are tons of ways, some of them is like what you've suggested, limiting the flow, and another is putting an adjustable relief valve between the barrel and the hammer valve, this'll leak the excess pressure instead of making the projectile accelerate faster.
btw, 90-150PSI divide it by 2PSI drop per shot is not equal to 100, not even higher than 80. you'll have to ramp up the tank's pressure to about 200PSI, thats more than double of your tank's usual pressure.
