I say you make a quad valved cannon.
nah, is say you make several piston valved cannons and make those parts pay for themselves and make a line of piston valved cannons and sell them to friends/family..etc

I could invest in a 6m length of 50mm PN18 Pipe. Only problem is I don't know what barrel i should use; 32mm,25mm,20mm or 15mm.
Spose i could try a 40mm barrel if I have enough chamber volume.

Because I also want to make a golf ball plinker for sh|ts and giggles,but I already have a paintball, and there isnt anything fun apart from marbles for 20mm and 25mm. Not sure about 32mm though.
