The best kind of valves for an air pressure gun would open almost instantaneously and have the highest flow possible. Piston and solenoid valves have both these qualities. Piston valves are dirt cheap but must be built by hand (though I think that I have seen some for sale online) while solenoids are readily available but can sometimes cost a lot. Hose handle (or pressure washer) valves open quickly but lack high flow. Ball valves allow high flow but open slowly. Other valve types exist, but all of the ones I have listed above have been used before. Your choice of a firing valve directly affects the performance of your gun, so choose your valves well.

A piloted piston valve pretty much has to be homemade. It's not hard to make, though. A 3/4" modded sprinkler valve should do quite well for the size of valve one would need in nerf.

Here are you links:
Here is a very good trigger mech, from zero The basic homemade valve
Here is where I got it from incase you even have any other questions The homemade section
And itís not a link but ball valves cost like $3 at any hardware store and they work pretty well to.
