Ive got all the diagrams and stuff planned out, now I need the materials.I need to know,
1. Where can I purchase a selenoid sprinkler valve?
2. Should I use 3/4"pvc or 1"pvc for the structure?
3. For around 80-90 psi what type and size barrel should I use(I dont have access to brass or petg)?


Thanks in advance.

I wouldn't go over 30 psi. I pump my simple ball valve homemade to 20 psi, and it goes over 100 feet level.

I don't know if my gun is different from what you plan of building, but mine has about a 2 ft pvc barrel, and I use stefan minis with a felt collar.

Ahem! Zero darts! Patent pending, trademarked, copywrited, whateverthehellelse.

For the structure, use 1/2" PVC. Put a good Unknown breech on it.
You should need:
1/2" PVC
2 - 1/2" T couplers
2 - 1/2" 90 degree couplers
1/2" ball valve
1" PVC (for breach)
Foam Sheeting (for breach seal)

Your making this type of homemade, right?

It is going to be slightly different, and did I not say where can I buy a selenoid sprinkler valve.

I know, I just forgot who designed them, but he used craft foam sheets, I used felt, just because it was all I had on me. They work very nicely in long pvc barrels.
