well, if you used them all in the same gun, the flow would be nowhere near the flow of a 6" valve.

the flow would be equivalent to 1.5 pi, which would translate to be approximately 2.5" porting. Of course, 1" sprinkler valves don't give a full .25pi surface area so it's probably closer to 1.5"-2". It is a decent price though. A 1" sprinkler here is $10.

in the US or were I live sprinkler valves are $20 I think its worth it, if you are smart enough to not conect them all to another 1inch tube before exiting into the barrel, only the intresting thing is that the system will require 6 times as much presure to operate if put into a single gun

no, not 6 times as much pressure, just six different outlets from the chamber or 6 different chambers.

alot of dead space. What you could do is build 3 guns with 2 valves each. or use the to actuate a piston valve.

just make six different guns...you have six valves....valves dont push the spud..the air does....by adding more valves..(which are bound not to be timed correctly when triggerd) you are just limiting the air flow...

well u need alot of air and and the faster that air comes out the farther it pushes whatevers in its way so thats why bigger valves are better cuz it releases more air faster. but ima just make a supah valve cuz im not gonna buy those anymore.

You can't exactly make a supah valve, you can try, but you need a lathe(probably metal) and skill....alot of skill but good luck anyway its cheaper to buy it.....except for sgort87 he makes his own.
