I'm having problems with the back pressure system (like the hornet, big salvo, and blastfire)
I can pump it up all the way with NO leaks at all, but when I push the blast button in all the air from the system escapes around the button, and when a barrel does fire it is delayed for about a second and not much air comes out.
The blast button was a problem in the stock gun because there was no spring pushing it up but I can get it to seal by pointing the gun vertically.
Also when I sake the gun/tanks I can hear the valve parts moving back and forward.
Before I did this integration the system would equalize the tanks after each shot, and the blast button leaked like a sieve.
Any help would be appreciated.
That tubing goes to the pump.
The tanks are connected like that on both sides. I had to drill a hole in front of the tank to make them work because the stock tubing was the weirdest size.
And because I know you all like videos.

EDIT: By the way, I forgot to tell you that your gun looks sweet.

If you could somehow get that working, yes. Unfortunately that trigger system relies on the shell of the hornet and uses a ratchet system. It would probably be pretty hard to replicate that set up outside of a hornet shell. I would pursue Bob's ideas over this.
Tantum, would a hornet trigger replacement somehow solve the problem?
Also, forgot to say, that gun looks freakin awesome. Really great work. Unfortunately if I used it during a round I would probably end up pretending to fly it around for the duration of the round.

So, replace all that random tee crap and directly feed all the tubing into the trigger, drilling 1/4" holes and using lots of superglue and goop.
It's not a pretty solution, but it's pretty much the only one that will work the way you want, because a tree of 1/8" ID vinyl tubing is not going to permit the fast airflow needed for all 4 of those poppets to fire (see what Bob said).
