I present the PSAL (Pneumatic Solenoid Air Launcher). As the name states it's a solenoid release valve launcher. The solenoid valve was modified to run like a back pressure tank instead of it being operated by electricity. The trigger is a brass fill valve I sourced from a past rig. The air tank is a simple 2" PVC tank with a schrader valve for filling.
The parts list is as follows.

A 1.5' length of 2" PVC $3.00
3/4" IPS electronic control valve $12.58
2"x1-1/2" DVW reducer $1.47
1-1/2"x 3/4" bushing $.37
3/4" Black steel nipple $1.24
2" end cap $2.57
3/4" male adaptor threaded $.37
Brass release valve can be substituted with any release valve.
So can the brass nipple.

At the moment it's getting ranges of +70'at 20psi so I'm satisfied. It's deceivingly comfortable and is quite lightweight. Video will be up after my go pro finishes charging.

P.s. At NJW9 I shot it angled outranged every other blaster.

Apoc was the best time I had nerfing PERIOD.


Got to meet a ton of great people.

Had enough darts to last the entire day.

My Crossbow/Longshot working extremely well and putting loads of foam down range.

Seeing an ocean of foam coming out of grievers alpha trooper.

Langley, VACC, and the LGLF.


2-11's barrel setup sucked and gave me about 70 ft of range.

The ungodly heat.

Getting 7 darts back the whole day.

Overall, my first apoc and certainly not my last.

That's one sick beast you have there. I was a bit disappointed when I saw the ,"can barely shoot the missle" part because I'm the kind of person who loves cobra's with Titan missiles, and I would love to see an HPA, external air or some other form of alternate power supply on there. Nice, easy to follow write up too.
