I'm wondering if anybody has information about stock volume or pressure of any air guns (like the panther, supermaxx1500, titan, airtech2000)or maybe just failure psi. this info could help me a lot with a multishot air blaster I'm planning on building. otherwise i will test some of these things and later post results for you all. --- mesurements yay! > SM-1.5k has 16ml tank > Panther gets 45psi before the oprv. starts to leak but can exceed 50psi stock.

Most of the stock blaster tubing, when new, can handle up to 70PSI. Older tanks though... Cannot handle that much. STocks pressures vary a great deal between blasters. Some are as low as 15 PSI, while others are over 40PSI.

I don't think "failure pressure" is going to be terribly useful to what you're doing. The pressure at which a tank will burst when being pressurized once is far above the pressure at which it can be pumped to consistently without failing over time(working pressure). I doubt anyone has taken the time or effort to determine max working pressure of nerf tanks.

I hunted down some tank volumes with the search function because I'm also interested.
SM1500/AT2K: 17.67mL
Panther: 37.78mL
Titan: 320mL
Cobra: 750mL
Sources: here, here, and here.

Some stock pressures(which are determined by the pump, not the tank) That I know offhand are titan/magstrike:~35psi and secret strike pocket blast: ~55psi. You might be able to find more with the search function.

It'd be great to have a directory of tank volume/stock pressure the way there is for spring length/compression force, but since airguns are generally less popular and more complicated than springers, it'll probably never happen.

You can never take nerf too seriously, but you can easily take yourself too seriously.
