The "Victory" is my first copper QEV rifle. It is breech loading (credit goes to hotwired for this) and it is capable of 200 psi. The Parker QEV is a diaphram one as you will see in the pictures below. There is also a safety made from a ball valve near the trigger. It shot good with some carrots I used for ammo, but I am not really sure how fast they went. I reckon they went pretty darn fast.

Specs:

barrel length: 28"

barrel pipe size: 1/2" copper

chamber length: 20"

chamber pipe size: 3/4" copper

valve: 1/2" Parker QEV

pilot valve: modified husky blowgun

safety: ball valve

Its nice, but looks akward to hold, maybe you should have the fill valve under the trigger and the trigger at a 90 degree angle. I would also extend the trigger a little.

over all its a great gun, nice'n shinny. looks like alot of fun.

It is actually very comfortable to hold, but it doesn't look that way.

Finally my breech loading method has gained a supporter :D

Also the first time I've seen someone else use the blowgun safety method.

I like to know my designs get around a bit :)

Just have to encourage the polymorph grips to catch on now...

Holding the barrel in one hand and pressing the blowgun lever with the thumb of the other hand around the blowgun (as it's actually meant to be used :P) sounds fine to me.

Looks like a nice, easy to use cannon.

Very nice gun- what pressures do you take it to, im not aware of the maximum pressure of QEV's. overall very cool gun :)
P.S. its not a rifle unless the barrel is rifled- forgive me if it is :roll:

I plan to have a rifled barrel on it. My dad used to work in a gunsmiths shop when he was a teen, so maybe he knows were to rent a rifling machine.

(i just now noticed that it rhymes)
