Ive been working on making another HUGE nerf cannon and I just got the valve done. here it is:

Yup, its two sprinkler valves pneumaticly moddified and linked up to a single pilot valve. I used a blowgun for the pilot valve just because it was simple and cool. Im going to use this vavle to make a real big ass cannon that should allow me to hit opponents from around 500-600ft away.

This should be pretty cool.

When in doubt, make a huge nerf cannon of death.

You'll want hose clamps on those fitting unless they're barbed. Also, you should make it shoot mongos. That would be beast. I already have something like this built except is just an inline sprinkler cannon with aproximatly a hundred cubic inches of air.

Nice clean construction, mine looks like shit becuase I screwed up the tap and I had to epoxy the damn blowgun in there.....still leaks.

Are those 3/4"? I know blowguns are used so often but if your using more than two valves you should upgrade to a ball valve for exaust, it will make the main valves open faster.

I doubt you can actually hit some one from 600'. Sure, it can TRAVEL 600' but what's the point of that when it can't hit someone?

The point is telling your friends that think Nerf is for pussies that if you shot them with your Nerf cannon they would most surely suffer severe injuries. Oh yeah, and pegging squirrels in the head from 300 feet and blowing their heads off.

One time, my brother saw a squirrel running along a wide wooden rail so he grabbed a rock and threw it right into the things back from about twenty feet. It got knocked off like it a human would have if shot in the back--arms and legs out, chest forward. The way it looked when it went flying just made it so damn funny.

The squirrel wasn't hurt much because it was running before it hit the ground.

And you should use the cannon from a top floor and hit unsuspecting passersby. THAT would be the funniest thing ever. Unless I was on the receiving end.

True.

None of my friends think that nerf is for pussies, that is after I shot them from 5 ft with my sm 750.

Yeah that is a nice valve, but this is going off-topic. Just to say, I also think you could never hit someone 500-600 ft. away with a nerf darts because you would have to have a perfect one that wouldn't blow up when shot. And anyway, you friends must be stupid if they think a Nerf cannon is just a Nerf blaster. Might as well take out a potato cannon or something. In my opinion, a titan is almost over kill for a Nerf gun. Anyway, I hope your cannon turns out well, but you could just make a spud gun instead, either way it will cause damage, but spud guns go further usually.

If he tried to shoot micros they would explode. What I believe he intends to shoot is large mongo sized darts.

Ok, Boltsniper has pointed out that nerf micros have a terminal velocity and distance (approx. 200'). Surpassing these is impossible due to the lack of sufficient mass. If anybody has any experience in physics, you will be familiar with the equation Force = mass x acceleration. additional mass is required, as their is a threshold level for force. That is why a naval cannons will shoot like 20 km away, and a .22 rifle only a couple hundred yards. Although the amount of force is different, the masses are different, which prevents an increase in distance for the rifle compared to the howitzer. Oh yeah, micros would not explode, as the FBR is an expanded polymer of some sort, which has a high level of tolerance for compression. They might be damaged, but properly constructed stefans would not be destroyed.

Have you had any experience with extremely powerful guns? Just yesterday I had a dart get shredded in my newly modded lbb.

Yes, I have had experience with high pressures and micros. I made a simple blowgun which I hooked up to my compressor, and the output was an unregulated 95psi. My dart is fine. It actually enjoyed the adrenaline rush. The material that FBR is made of is more prone to tensional stresses than it is to compressional. That is why plastics will stretch, but most will not recompress back to their original shape. That is also why most times people don't have darts shrinking back to their original length after being stretched alot, because the compression from the air has little effect on it. It is possible that the FBR you recieved had impure hydrocarbon chains, resulting in certain strong and weak points, thus resulting in it shredding.

I'm not too familiar with the sprinkler valves, I only know how to mod them and how they work. Do they need to be regulated (some say yes, others no), and do they use all the air in the tank? If you had a larger tank, wouldn't a blowgun work as your valve if you wanted repeated shots without repumping? I know that the air flow would vary with the blowguh, but if you had a short range fast action gun, that probably wouldn't that big of a difference, since you are aiming for a shorter range (say 50' for an indoor primary)
