what kind of valve are you using now? You could try something with a small air chamber that is connected to a larger reserve chamber. Between them you could put a piston valve with a heavy spring behind it that has air flow in reverse. It would shut when the air pressure is equalized in the 2 chambers but would fill the small one when it is empty. idk mabey it would work. I'd probably go with a modded sprink valve if i did this idea.

You can still use piston valve and get better performance and multiple shots. The key is to have a smaller firing chamber and a large tank volume behind the pilot volume held back by a small one way valve. When you dump the pilot volume the gun will fire and the pressure drop will open the one way valve from the chamber which will reset the piston and fill the firing chamber again.

myesh, like i said...anyhoo id still use a modded sprink since it would make for less piping and you can use smaller chambers with sprinks, unless you use a wery small piston valve.

Ever hear this certain word: Research?
Look in the Spud Wiki next time, and learn how to spell "what."

ya know what, I will never do that research thing because i can just post the question and someone will always answer. And someone will always PMS too. I dont care how I spell my words, thats how ive been banned twice. Go to the grammer section and read what "THEMOST" and "THEMOST#2" have to say. lol (that was me by the way.)
