Click the button at the top of the page tha says "Other"
Go to "Links"

A simple pneumatic is very easy, easier than a combistion(for me atleast).

It's cheaper also, because all the reducers from 3 or 4" pipe cost a lot. 4" fittings around here cost usually around 5 bucks or more. For a pneumatic, all you need is an end cap ($.50), pipe ($.50), a ball valve ($3), and a schrader valve ($2.50), if all the sizes are 1/2" PVC. Total cost for a basic, strong, marble gun: about $7.

even for a sprinkler valve gun with a 2" chamber/1.5" barrel is still cheap.
