A lot of help needed, improving old gun

Unread postAuthor: Talk » Tue Jul 03, 2018 10:40 am

Hello people,

QEV, slide valve, schrader etc easiest combo to make a decent gun but i can't even get some of those here in local shops and the only thing that can be shipped here by amazon is the slide valve whose shipping price costs more than the item itself.
I cannot order airguns from outside the country the one sold here only locals can buy :cussing:

I have this old gun thing i made in 2014 after looking at someones from youtube, you can see everything i can get here is mostly parts used for fluids/plumbing only thing related to air is the schrader valve in that pic.

A build that can accurately shoot 8mm-10mm wax ammo and hit 2cm x 2cm target at 5 meters with 80 psi and less is good for me. Some easy combustion setup comes to mind but wax ammo will melt and the pvc pipes too.

EDIT:
Another idea was me paying anyone of you and you ship me a Crosman P1322 disassembled, I'm waiting for replies from fedex and airgun depot on this matter.

Can you get delivery from Ebay sellers? Chinese QEVs are super cheap.

Got reply from airgun depot and fedex, they said they wont ship.
The QEV and slide valves from Chinese sellers are cheap but they aren't making clear of other charges like recently this country implemented VAT.

Have you considered a spring loaded ball valve?

Practical example

Failing that, making your own piston valve should not be beyond you wit, all you need is a little epoxy ;)
