That design will work and is about as simple as it gets. It would work better with a 'hammer valve' but that design will work.

Your English looks good! :wink:

Make sure it is a high-flow blowgun and the hose and its connections are at no point smaller than the hole in the valve stem. This will make your gun as efficient as possible as the air will have free passage to the valve.

Have a look at this: http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/15-high ... 17042.html

I recommend a small chamber charged to high pressure (300-400 psi) with a shock pump like this: http://www.ebay.nl/itm/Beto-MP-035-MTB- ... 53f9ebd8ca

Nederlander?
It would be nice if you could give your location, I could help you with some stuff :)

You could also try a spring loaded ball valve, or just make a piston valved gun. All the information needed to build them are on spudfiles.

If the air tank is too big, the setup as he has it will become a bit too unwieldy. You really don't need a whole lot of air to propel light projectiles.

Sure, no reason why you can't do that. :)

The blow gun wouldnt let the air through as fast as a qev or solonoid valve so you would want the projectile to be a tight fit and the valve to be as big as you can
