Piston Valves

If you think those are over your head, then look at modding a sprinkler valve

I personally would start out with the sprinkler, because they're easier than pistons.

If you want to run the gun at 140 psi and this is your first time building a valve,go for a modified sprinkler. Once you get your feet wet on that then look into a coaxial and later a piston valve.If you screw up on the piston valve and pressurize it to 140 psi. there is a pretty good chance you'll have a back cap fly off(kaboom!).Start off with a modified sprinkler and work yourself up.
Nothing is better than starting off right and having all your digits so you can build the more advanced stuff.

where could i get a sprinkler valve and could it hold that much pressure cause i made a pneumatic with a small ball valve and a small bottle and it held 140 but i thought i heard spinkler valves cant hold as much as i want to use

just start with a coaxial, they are VERY simple. if you can build a ball valve pneumtic, you can build a coaxial.

my only advice is that you have a very good bumper. also, if you cant find a piston and dont have a lathe, mold it with hot glue or epoxy.

ps- a piston valve that is built into a tee is just a very small coaxial.

Diaphram, a lot like sprinkler, fill on one side purge on the other to open valve. As in Quick exaust.

Here you go:

Oh and sprinkler valves can go to 150 psi.I regularly run mine at 145 psi.

Edit: Curse you Fnord!CURSE YOU! beating me to the links. :cry:
