Co2 Push Valve

19 April 2006 - 09:23 PM

I really dont know when I'll get around to it, but I do plan on making a home made nerf gun. You know..eventually. Anyways, I want to use co2, but I dont know what type of valve to use. Paintball valves (I think, I'm not 100% sure) use a hammer to hit a valve, which opens and closes, but because of the way its placed in the gun (In the bolt, or behind it...I dont actually own a paintball gun) It would be hard to take out and use for a home made. I dont need an electronicly operated valve, just something were you push a button, or part, and it opens. Even better, you push a part, and it snaps open and then closed quickly. If I could use a pvc valve I would, but co2 is very cold, and much too high a pressure for pvc. I dont want to have to do a lot of work to make the valve functional, like boltsniper did with his BASR, and the brass eagle valve. If anyone knows of a solution, or where I could cannablize a valve from, that would be great.

My SM5K started leaking yesterday, and within hours it would no longer hold air. I've opened it up, and I can push the firing pin all the way forward and pump, and the air still leaks, out of the front. I think the valve is off center, it might be from over pumping but I think its from general wear and tear. Does anyone know anyway of fixing this, or is it ruined?

Broken Larami 1000

18 January 2004 - 12:23 AM

i recently bought a larami 1000, ive never worked on one before, i opened it up, to see if anything could be modded, and the rotating mechanics all flew out. I dont know how to put it together, but ive gotten close, if anyone knows how to put it together exactly right, a picture would be great. in the process the front of the trigger broke, right behind where the grey L shaped piece hooks in. The trigger, being the force behind the rotation of the chamber, being broken means that the excellent combination of power and rate of fire of this gun would be lost. If anyone has any ideas about how to fix the trigger that also would be great. I dont think epoxy would work, the trigger is extremely thin and i dont think it would hold very well. The only solution i can see is to melt a hole in both pieces and put a needle or something metal in and then epoxy over that.
