Ball valve mechanism?

Unread postAuthor: Urban Ninja » Sun Apr 30, 2006 1:35 am

I am making a steel shotgun. I am using a ball valve due to the ease of getting it, low cost and can withstand very high pressures. But i really want a trigger to so it can be accurate and fast opening. Would this work? (Picture).
It is a tesioned spring when cocked and attached to the ball valve with string. When the trigger is pressed the ballvalve quicky opens.
Does any one else have any other ideas? I really need a trigger so any help will be appreciated!! Thanks a lot.

That was my idea.A combustion operated cilinder shoud be better then a spring may be.But I agree that it is very inpracticle.
