PVC solvent glue so i need another tip. Also, it isn't as powerful as I should expected it to be, any tips there also?

I have another reason to poke you with the hot metal stick; You need to play around with these designs. In fact, now that I think of that design, perhaps I should have suggested larger diameter vinyl piping... Given the air flow is going to be vastly hindered by the tiny inner diameter of 1/4". Perhaps 5/8" or 3/8". Should be easy to adapt your homemade, Ehrenschutz.
Sorry Cxwq, that was a really stupid error on my part... I'm starting to see it in the homemade valves, too, now that I've done more firing tests with the semi-auto valves. When I can nab some 7/16" brass tubing, I'll have a better valve up (Improved airflow, adaptable to copper construction for higher pressures). I should have the time, but without any Nerf wars in 1.5 years, I'm getting lazy towards air guns... You've seen my site, you know my motive-less motivation.

::pokes zero with a hot metal stick::
yeah.. that was pointless : /
Some word on the pvc shctuff..
For one, pvc cement welds it together to hold at 600+ (I'm sure theres a real number, but maybe the pipe goes first) So, start with a fresh cap and pvc end, and try it again, but remember
swab both with glue
and then stick em together while twisting 1/4 turn.. clockwise (or counter clockwise if you want to be a rebel)
Tubing also kinks with bends, if that happens to you.. basically ever, you can find a extension spring (I'm sure that's not what they are called, but the ones you pull on) and slide it over the tubing. Nerf seems to do that a bit, as do people who use tubing in odd bends. It should help.. I think.... can't quite remember
And as for power.... pretty sure zero is right. Unless, of course, your homemade has been probed by aliens recently.
