I just run the the air straight from my air compresser. I dont like makin pressure chamers, you have to make and tape and glue things all the time

i had a pnumatic cannon blow up on me 2 times and yes it was schedual 40. the first time it was because i didnt wait exept for 4 hours for the glue to dry and and one of the fitting blew off and the handle on the ball valve flew off and hit me in the nuts. The seccond time it blew up because my cannon is designed like 2 long poles parallel to eachother and attached with 2 90 degree angle fittings at the bottom and the poles buckeled and swayed beczuse they were very long and created a lot of pressure on the 90 degree anlge pieces so they blew up. Both times the explosions were very scary and my neighbors heard and came out. and both were at a PSI of 80 when they blew up.

and BC pnumatics how did you ever get a PSI that hight! no PVC can hold 800 and my compresser only goes up to 200 where did you find one that went up to 800!

Actually that's not true. PVC is rated at like a quarter of its bursting pressure, and smaller pipe ahs higher pressure rating. ALthough I do worry still when I charge up my sniper to 80 and hold it near my shoulder when firing.
