They eventually made the barrel much longer, and added a chamber.

In fairness, Jack, the Mythbusters' cannon is from their most recent series. And disappointingly, they end up using another less than optimal valve on the final version.

Yes, they always use some kind of ball valve, and this time their HP tank had a very small exit hole, something like 3/8 for a 2" barrel, very disappointing

Would this work with Nerf Darts? They are also light, and have a really good snug fit in the barrel.

No reason why it shouldn't.
