Hi , i liked pcp airguns and decided to build one but i dont like style of normal hammer valves. I decided to try build a hammer valve where I can put the barrel in front of the valve. I builded something like this on the picture.
Air is escaping like sieve from the back where is the squished rubber washer , I squished it as hardest as i can. But I think it's the problem that i used bolt and not nail and i needed to remove the threads. I done this with my lathe but maybe air escape beacuse it's not that good smooth. I will try it with smooth nail. Do you think it is smooth problem? I don't know how many people make valve in that style , isn't he better than normal style hammer valve?
