Hello, I have been trying to make a really simple homemade nerf gun that's powered by air. But all that they have don is shoot for 4 shots then get a big leak. I am trying to atempt this. All i need is the part that the pump connects to to create pressure. What is that part called?

Thanks in advance.

The name you are seeking is a Check Valve, it lets air in one way, they are easily home made, or you can buy them at a hardware store.........

Ummm, no he had it right. A schrader valve is the one-way valve used on bike tires. That way he actually has a way to fill the tank.

Hey asshole, Presta valves are only used in bicycle tires, Schrader valves are used in bicycle tubes for clincher rims.

Anyway, you should probably not delve into making any reservoir based air gun. Try a SNAP or a HAMP. You don't have to worry about leaks or valves with piston operated blasters.

Doing this as I speak. I have no idea when I got it...my DAD got it some 15 years ago, but that doesn't matter. Anyways, it keeps jerking around all over the place. I try to hold it with a rag...It doesn't look like...much.

CA13, no one cares about your opinion, because you're a tremendous douche. And a simple snap-in schrader valve would be a fine choice to fill a homemade tank.
