Welcome to the forum! 8) By automatic pilot valve, are you looking for a slide valve? You can purchase them for very cheap prices on ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/1pcs-1-2-BSPT-Thread-Pneumatic-Flow-Control-Manual-Slide-Valve-HSV-15-/290954610668?pt=Pneumatic_Hydraulic_Valves_Parts&hash=item43be3f07ec

Benvenuto a spudfiles!

Ben fatto, sia sul fucile che il tutorial, l'inglese si capisce bene.

With the air from one shoot you could of shoot 5-6 -7 times and have same power. you need an automatic pilot valve that will allow you to just shoot. It worth to make this pilot


E possibile convertirlo in semi automatico sostituendo la tua valvola pilota con una valvola a tre vie, da un'occhiata a questo link: how-to-database/topic23626.html

Un'altra cosa, ho notato che stavi sparando in direzione di alcuni appartamenti, nell'interesse della sicurezza e meglio utilizzare un 'backstop' per garantire che nessun proiettile lascia la tua area di tiro.

LOL! Corrected the automatic translation ;)

It is possible to convert it to semi-automatic by replacing your pilot valve with 3-way valve, take a look at this link: how-to-database/topic23626.html

Another thing, I noticed you were firing in the direction of some apartments, in the interest of safety it is better to use a backstop to make sure that no projectiles leave your shooting area.

How about just modding the original pilot valve he has?

Add a seal for it so that immediately when its pressed it seals up again, should still pilot enough pressure out to activate the piston valve...


If I'm not clear enough I'll draw a pic :D
