Piston not retreiving

Unread postAuthor: jfullr97 » Sun Jun 24, 2012 7:13 pm

Hey guys I finally made my pneumatic barrel sealing piston valve air gun but when I release the air in the back the piston does not come back, I think it might be to snug of a fit.


Any help would be appreciated thanks,

Fuller :lol:

Probably the opposite that or the pilot valve it too small.
