why not a blowgun?


Oh crap! yeah, I meant a blow-valve, but typed ball valve, as that is what I use as a ghetto regulator on my semi-auto BBMG.

no, for my air compressor, as the 120PSI output just hold the diaphragm in the QEV shut and dumps the air out the blowgun when open, or the pop-off valve. So with the ball valve opened a tiny bit, it takes a bit longer for the air to get back into the cannon, thus making it cycle properly.
