From my experience, research isn´t enough. There are things that you will only find out by tests. Per example you know how a QEV works, but I don´t think you can make one that works with a blowgun pilot.
If you just want to have some fun, buy a QEV, use a tire valve for both charge and fire.

Sound advice for any beginner, I wish people would just take the hands on approach to this hobby as apposed to just building off a plan or parts list. It not only teaches people how-to be build a creation that they can truly call their own, but also inspires creativity that can lead to new consepts and designs for the forum.

Most people want to jump straight into the semi-auto super gun, which albeit is easier with the cheap Chinese valves that have sprouted up on eBay, but doesn't teach anything. It's worth it to start with something anyone can understand such as a ball valve or an unmodified sprinkler and then work your way up
