I new i wanted to make a homemade, so i looked up the directory and they were all good but none of them caught my eye. So i sat down and said "Ah screw it ill start from scratch"
First i wrote down everything i needed and went to my local plumbing store, and bought everything. $24 later i came home and started cutting the PVC to the size i wanted. I pieced it all together and didn't like the look. I tried a different way and loved it.
I put the primer on the inside and on top of the pieces i was joining then applied the PVC cement, and waited over night.
I was dreaming about it all night, just praying it would work. Finally i woke up and picked it up, put a dart in and ... FAIL. It had so much air but the dart wasn't shooting so i searched around and came across some small steel tubing and put it in the barrel, along with the dart. I pumped and pumped and pumped some more, went out into my street and fired. I got the streamline 100ft.

Sorry, but your gun is not looking nice, or good, THIS is a good looking homemade....
Ok it might be powerfull, pro's for that, but it seems like you have to "fire" the dart by opening the ball valve, in no way you can open that fast enough for the dart to fire, unless you use a tight fit barrel, wich you did.
And with tight fitting darts in a air pressure gun, you lose ranges, so the dart could fire even further with a quicker pressure release valve.

But I believe there are many types of valves, maybe there are butterfly valves that open quicker?
In the mythbusters chickencannon there was an butterfly valve.....
