Pretty sure mine says 2 hours, but I wait 24 anyway :D

It still feels soft after 2 hours!

I waited 12 hours. Did you read the page before because it said that?

Aslo Im thinking of piloting the valve with a blow gun or a 3/4inch sprinkler valve. Which one would you guys go with?

Do not understand that this valve already has two valves?
The main valve is piloted by a smaller built in pilot valve.
Look at the drawings on the link I gave you.

All you need is a blowgun!
Look at biged launcher and you can see a blowgun.

I just tried using the blow gun. But as I was tightening it unto my gun it cracked so I have to postpone using a blow gun and just use my ball valve for now.

sorry videos of my gun are going to be delayed. The male connecter I had came cross threaded so for my own safety I'm going to make a new chamber.

As Dewey said, this valve ALREADY has a pilot. A blowgun is plenty to get the job done, however, I use a 1/4 inch ball valve because in my opinion its a little bit safer, and I just like how it feels when I fire it. You DO NOT need a pilot to pilot your main pilot, lol. The sprinkler valve would be way overkill dude!!! For your chamber, try to get a street 90 degree elbow, mipt x slip, looks like this::

Just assembled the new chamber. Actually used primer for once. How important is it to use primer?
I'm going to try to get a video and damage pics up tomorrow :lol:

It's pretty important to use primer. I wouldn't use a PVC cannon that hadn't used primer.

Are you kidding me? Why would you not use primer? That would be like making a pizza without putting cheese on it, lol!!

How would a valve like this fair in a golf ball semi?
With a blow forward bolt, and possibly co2?

Cant decide between building a barrel blocking piston, or trying to catch one of these sukas on eBay...
