its exactly like every other one you see, it just has the flow restrictor on the tip, just unscrew it (you might need a wrench, dont try to hard)

Yes, you squeeze the trigger and air is allowed through. From your two previous posts im assuming your using the blowgun to vent air from your sprinkler valve. Here is a quick explination: basically you use the blowgun to vent air from behind the rubber diaphram and since your venting the air the pressure becomes lower and the diaphram is forced in that direction due to the pressure from the opposite side which allows the air from your chamber pass to the barrel. If you dont know what the inside of a sprinkler valve looks like do a quick google image search. Trust me if you follow the instructions given here it will work.

thank you very much i understand now and am going to do the mod some time this week :) just one more question my sprinkler valve stops working at about 60 psi because the solinoid is not strong enough if i have a blowgun mod will it work at higher a psi.
