50mm/2" sprinkler venting.

Unread postAuthor: rna_duelers » Fri Apr 27, 2007 6:47 am

Now I have an order for a gun with a golfball barrel.A 150cm 50mm barrel 40mm barrel in an over under configuration.

Now thats out of the way.The valve is a 50mm/2" sprinkler valve which the person ordering wants to be launched with a simple squeeze of a trigger like a blow gun,but I was wondering if a modded blowgun would work very well,well actually I know there is much better ways of exhausting but I do not want to add a 25mm or 20mm sprinkler valve on top of the 50mm valve which doesn't look very good which is important with orders like this.

Just wondering what performance I would get out of this valve.Anyone that has modded one of these valves can provide some information it would be great.

Thanks for your time.

it wont be as good as It could be, but how would the customer know?

it should provide decent preformance, but certainly nothing to brag about.

:lol: do you own a business selling spud guns, anyways, a blow gun will work, but a ball valve would be better, but the customer gets what the customer wants :lol:

Well I do a little here and there,its mainly from word getting around.I get calls from people friends asking could I get a golball gun made or can you moddify me a Sprinkler valve etc.I didn't even plan to get into buisness but it happend.


I am going to have a 1/4 ball valve then the blow gun attached to it,so if more performance then remove the blowgun and use the ballvalve.
