Well this is my marble/paintball sniper.
It features the all new 3 port sprinkler valve and is absolutely devastating, all I need to do now is finish the paint job.(red pipe/blue fittings

that looks pretty good, nice work. I like your handle. But whats with all the tape (is it just masking from the painting)?

Looks good. I like the handle idea, too. A little suggestion: remove as much of the orange hose as possible; it'll cut down on pilot volume and increase performance somewhat.

or turn it upside down and connect the blowgun directly to the valve.

Well I might cut the hose a bit, I font want to turn it upside down because its a pain because I have a weird valve and it has a guide rod, SO i might cut sown the hose or do something crafty

Well I have it done now, I just glued the new chamber but I accidentally double threaded my 2"x1" bushing so I need to get a new one+coupler

Notice the modified flush bushings!
