Hey,

So i plan on making a magstrike semi auto, by hooking up an RSCB'd shotblast tank to the bladder, completely eliminating the piston part of the blaster, I've seen it done on the SGnerf site. But the thing is, i need a flow control valve so all the air doesn't go out of the bladder at once and through the opening of the shotblast tank. I want to get at least 3 shots in before pumping, and i believe this is do-able. Can someone direct me to an online store to purchase a flow control valve for this purpose? I like using 1/8in ID, 1/4in OD tubing, so that size valve is prefered. Thanks.

I believe you are talking about this mod.

Read that. The only valve that you need to buy is a check valve.

Do you think the mod that you link would be banned at most wars?? I know converted supersoakers are banned typically, but it seems like that would be because the tanks are so large and they are overpowered. In this case though the supersoaker tank is only used to fill the magstrike tank, so power wouldn't be an issue. I don't know, what are other peoples thoughts on this being allowed at wars??

The supersoaker tank is not used to fill the magstrike "tank". Not sure where you got that idea. And no, i don't think it would be banned at wars i attend, as long as it has an RSCB or hopper

The tank fill button comes with the Magstrike. Its the valve behind the trigger.
The check valve you could probably find at a Petstore or online.

Okay thanks, Pause! I found a check valve in my hornet, and i have that tank fill button too. Also found out that the shotblast tank works great with a hopper.

Just to answer your original query, the flow/speed control valve i used in my constant pressure air feed system is a push-in version, like this:

You can usually get them from online pneumatic parts supply stores or from eBay, just do a search for "Push In Speed Controller Pneumatic Air Valves".

The difference between using a speed controller valve versus a check valve is that you don't need to press a separate button to refill the air tank, the speed valve automatically refills it for you in between shots (adjust the flow to the optimal speed and remember to do quick trigger pulls so that less air is wasted during the refills).

Hope that helps! :)
