regulator for a home made paintball gun

Unread postAuthor: THEMOST » Sun Oct 08, 2006 9:47 pm

Today I constructed a paintball rifle that shoots like hell. From 30 feet away I put a hole through part of my dad's metal door with a paintball...a bitter sweet. But more to the point. I can get it pumped up to 80 psi without the paintball busting in the chamber and I can get 5-7 good sniper shots without reloading. But I could never hold up in a paintball game if I took that long reloading. I need help constructing a regularor so I can get more shots per reload. Can someone help me?

Ok here it goes.
1. DONT EVER SHOOT SOMEONE WITH ANY TYPE OF GUN!! Which i infered you where going to do because you sayed about using it in a paintball game.
2. You sayed it went though a metal door right? this leads me to my next point......
3. What would this do to a person?
Seriosly what even made you think about shooting some one with a gun that can go through metal? Are you a F***in' retard? Oh and i REALLY dont think a paintball has the ability of going through a door unless its like .0003mm thick

i think what he meant was barrel and that anything above 80psi would cause the paintball to blow up in the barrel due to too much force/G's
