<75, maybe less than 60, assuming you can find a 10' section of 2.5" pipe locally.

Well, it will cost about $50-70 but, you need to use brushings instead of reducers. reducers are made out of dwv, most of the time. Brushings are made out of pvc, which is much stronger. I suggest making a piston gun. they are really simple, more powerful, and cost less if you know what you are doing.

Dwv is a grade of PVC pipe, not a pipe material. A gun this size would be easy to make a piston barrel sealer for.

Bushings* not Brushings.

Reducers are also made out of PVC. WHat the hell are you on about "theregoestheneighbor". Don't listen to him.

Bushings are made out of pressure rated PVC. Well make sure its pressure rated anyway.

Reducers are also made out of PVC. But 99% of the time they're not pressure rated. They're DWV PVC. They're still PVC just not rated. You can find extremely rare pressure rated reducers but its not worth it.

Just search around, there are plenty of threads involving piston valves. Then you can make your own instead of just copying someone else"s.

Because they aren't that good; they have low flow and are expensive. If you spent $20 on making a piston valve, performance would probably be over 3 times better.

If your worried about price than don't build it. Save your money and build it great. I spend like 150 on my cannons. The pneumatic I'm building is over 200 with two mauler valves. Save Save Save.

dude, you still need like 2 things and from home depot and a plumbing supply store your price range is in between $50-$100+ you still need a sprinkler valve(pluming supply store) and any trigger setup(mainly home depot) good drawing will probably work with the right parts :D
