Does anyone have a picture of a homemade zero tank that they've made or some info about them? It doesn't look like the seal from the CPVC endcap with the PVC would be very good.

It wouldn't surprise me if a zero valve has never actually existed.

Yeah, I built one about a year ago. Trust me, it will be easier to take apart a titan, screw by screw, rip the air tank out, and put it into a recon, so that it still fires darts, than build an efficient Nerf gun around a zero tank. No offense zero, just my own personal experience.

wait a minute.... *ponders*

-Cpvc that's been under your home for 10 years can shatter. New Cpvc doesn't, unless you enjoy violently beating your gun on a tree.

Yeah, I attempted one a few weeks ago. I bet if I had worked a lot more on it, it might have actually worked, but I didn't, and I ended up giving it to NerfCrazy anyway. I got it to hold a very small amount of pressure, but not nearly enough to sufficiently fire a dart.

I'm going to go to Home Depot soon and try to make a different form of air tank similar to the one in CS's DCHAP

I ran a search for "Zero Tank" and got only this topic as a result.
What exactly is a Zero Tank?

EDIT: Sorry, I got something from a search for "Zero Valve." Nevermind.
