Water Leakage

Unread postAuthor: sdflikuwheqjrkjqwe » Sun Jun 15, 2014 1:53 am

Hey guys,

I have a aluminum QEV based pneumatic spudgun. I love shooting water out of it, but I'm worried that the water in the barrel could make its way into the chamber. Is this possible?

Thanks!

Yes that's possible. A few condictions have to be present like no air in the chamber, the QEV not in the sealed possion and left over water in the barrel. I wouldn't worry about it, dry fire it a few times should blow it right out.

Welcome to Spudfiles. :D

If you use air, there is usually a bit of condensated water inside the chamber anyway.
Should be no problem whatsoever.

I like the nickname you picked...I was thinking of picking the same ..just went for Brian the brain as it seemed more random...
