Nice work!

Although you might want to change those washers for something plastic.
The metal washers tend to scrape the inside of the copper tube.

A rubber `rawlnut`plug might be a good idea.
They fit a 22mm copper tube perfectly!


But maybe it alredy works fine like it is.
Congrats!!

Yep I've had enough for now. Time for a new hobby. After all the work I put into the gun and the pump, the more pressure you put in, the less power I get. I accidentally dropped my gun before when I tripped and completely bend the barrel and snapped it.

I've just had a gutful.....all this time and money and it just doesn't work. I just don't have the passion or the patience anymore. Call me a sook or a whinner if you wish but a bloke can only take so much.

Over and out.

Do not look back, and grieve over the past, for it is gone;
Do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come;
Live life in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.

Not yet unfortunately. We are in the process of finishing writing our album. We have 8 songs completely done and 2 that are half done. It's going to be a concept album, based off the book by Steven King "The Shawshank Redemption" which was later turned into a movie. All the songs we have are completely different but they all flow into one another. We are melodic thrash metal but with heavy progressive metal influences.

Cheers for the inquiry mate :D.
