Replacement of blower gun

Unread postAuthor: Talk » Tue Sep 24, 2013 4:50 pm

I consulted with a member of this forum Wyz2285 and he said i need to replace the air blower gun with some other thing to Increase the power i have no idea what to use instead of the air blower gun and maintain the shape of the Grip (I've considered using PVC ball valve but the problem was it wouldn't look like a Barrett M82A2 anymore) I thought i could join and get some help from the members who are keen to help noobs like me.. :hello2:
I'll post the specs if anybody needs them to get an idea on what I'm trying to make :)

One thing you can do is just take the blow gun apart and drill the port a bit bigger. A fairly small change in the diameter of the whole increases the air flow significantly.

Some gas systems (like stoves etc.) have these Y-shaped connectors used with a flow restricter. This would allow you to have like an "in-line" piston valve with as small as possible blowgun mounted on something like a wooden grip, voila! :wink:

See the button that the handle pushes? See the hex nut? Remove the nut and open the valve up. Drill/grind/sand to boost the air flow.

Sorry for the delay, but this kind of fitting would allow the same ergonomics :
