This is my second homemade. It has a split airtank that can fire either the main barrel (petg nested in 1/2" pvc)or the secondary barrel that is 1/1/2" ABS. This has a perfect fit on nerf rockets. I have not range tested it yet but the output of air it has it great...ranges will be up soon.

The airtank is 7" of 1/1/2"abs with the 2 endcaps which makes the total airtank length around 8/1/2".

The rocket Barrel uses a 1/2" pvc valve (this pic. also shows how i connected the split in the vinyl tube)

The main barrel uses a 1/2" matal ball valve(all the connections to the valves and to the airtank is done in vinvy tube, sch 80, or abs connections.)

Wow that's quite unique. What are the ranges on it and how many pumps? What kind of check valve did you use?

Takes about 7 pumps to fill the airtank but I still have not done any range tests. There is no check valve on the gun...no need for it, the pump can handle the pressure.

the pump can handle the pressure.

So there is a check valve in the pump? Where did you get it.

It is on most plungers and pumps. If there wasn't, my NF would suck up a dart every time I cocked it with the dart in the barrel.

Don't worry about the things you don't know. Do sheep expand in the rain? Who discovered how to get milk from cows? And what was he doing in the first place?

Hee hee. You must have a really bad dart-barrel fit, or I have a bad plunger-plunger tube fit....aw cwap. But what kind of pump is it that he was using and where did he get it? I've never seen anyone use abs before, was it good to work with?

The ABS pipe is very sturdy and hold air quite well. I picked it up at home depo for 3.50$ for 4 feet of 1/1/2". The pump I picked up at walmart for 3.00$. It came with the extension also.

Looks like an average sports ball pump that you'd find in the sports section of Wal-Mart for $3.50.

Not in the game anymore, but it was great while it lasted. Thanks for the great years of fun, NH!

Wow, that's awesome! Do you have any ranges? Also, when you say Nerf rocket, what do you mean? Like the Titan missile?
