I use piezos (little white ones from long nosed grill lighter) which sounds like what you are using. not sure if they are good for the larger guns. For them, you could use BBQ ignitors which are bigger, they cost 10.99 US dollars at my local sears hardware. You can also use etched spark plates, or whatever they call them. there is also the stun gun ignition which looks like the best way to go to me, not sure how much that cost. Just do some research and it should help alot
Hope I helped

you can use a electronic gas grill sparker which i got a Canadian tire for 24.99 + tax . have to do some modding on it so that it has an am switch and fire and maybe remote in the near future. you can get 2 1.5cm sparks out of it easily.

Here's an EZ trigger like sparker. Take a long nosed lighter take it apart, take the gas tank out, and run the wires thru the gap where the adjuster was (little lever thingy), then run those wires to your screws. Then attach the whole lighter to the gun for a bazooka like trigger.

ok, here is a bomb ass ignition. It is the guts of a 100,000 volt stun gun, but i mount it in a small clear box with a hinged lid. Stun gun ignition is the way to go dude, theyre dirt cheap on ebay and fairly simple. When you hold the button down you get a series of sparks, not just one off a piezo/bbq clicker. You can take the trigger from the old stun gun and just make the wires longer to make it a remote trigger, then you can mount the trigger on whatever type of handle you want.

(note: BBQ clickers are also a "piezo". Any push button spark without a battery is powered by a "Piezo-electric" diode, bbq clickers have a bigger one than the piezos in grill lighters or refillable butane lighters.)Image
