You should be fine. Blowguns are used to exhaust sprinkler valves which are about the same size as your cannon.

It doesn't work for diaphragms. Currently the glue on my new coax (same 1.5" with .5" barrel) is drying but usually after like 8 or 9 hours I put it to 20 psi to check for leaks. IF you put o-rings on the piston it will be slightly harder to slide it and harder to open it.

Hmmmm.....(my idea has spread nicely)

Would it be better to put a sprinkler valve on it befor the blowgun, would the gun be more powerfull?

Search for 57101 on hdsupply.com and it will some up with the sprinkler that Joel sells (Orbit Watermaster 1" In-Line Model # 57101)
