hey ladies and gents, just thought id upate my status with freebies, with this time a 3" sprinkler rated for 220psi working pressure that i got for free of kerbside collection!!

this will be made into my marble shotgun as the other was made into a TB gun.

im going to use Poly as the chamber so expect some 200psi shots at 3" bore very soon! i am making this compact for now, ie bout a metre long but that may change when i feel like some raw big bore power!

HOLY CRAP! :shock:

What's the value of something like that? I'm expecting some high pressure shots. Those valves do have some nice safety margins. Maybe go for a steel chamber instead of poly and get a fridge compressor. :)

*resists the urge for a double entendre*

I thought you said "marble shotgun", wouldn't that be a lot of 3/4" holes in something?

A single large barrel will give you a lot more options though ;)
