Do a search for pcp...go through the threads on the first page.

Nothing worthwhile comes without a cost....the cost here is your time.

Push button valves generally are ideal for pilot valves but not as main valves unless you're shooting very small calibres ( <0.177" ).

It was merely a response to your juvenile question ;)

If you don't have the wherewithal to sift through the forum to find basic information, I would strongly recommend you start with standard off-the-shelf parts before attempting to build your own.
