cloud capacity UPDATE

This area is for the discussion of BB or airsoft sub machine guns, and or other small arms such as pellets. No home made BB or airsoft guns should ever be used in a match where you shoot other people... they are too powerful.

Yes, those fittings are called cleanout adapters and can be found at most hardware stores for about a dollar.

I heard of this thing...I believe it's called the edit button...It's beckoning to you... USE IT!!! Haha, dude, no offense, but you should use the edit button. It's the button above your post with the pencil on it. ;) By the way, good luck on the bbmg. I'd do the same thing if I lived in such a small town, too.

Ok Ive decided on using 2" parts it goes male plug>female x female coupler> cleanout adapter> threaded plug have a question for ya all though the cleanout is about .5" to short to fit all the way up to the stop in the coupler. Should i cut the coupler down or do you think the coupler will hold? the threaded plug and cleanout say dwv on then but they are solid plastic just as thick as the rest of the fittings so I'm not gonna worry bout it. or should i?

if you put in 100 psi from the blowgun, the pressure inside the coupler will never exceed 30 psi, so nothing to worry about.
