If i were to get a 1 inch ball valve or Sprinkler Valve that was a 1 inch then had a 2 inch barrel adapted to it would i still have alot of power with a 4 inch pressure chamber? or even a 1 inch valve to 3 inch barrel would i still have alot of air flow to project things at a high velocity?

the results weren't great, but they weren't really disappointing either. 1" watermaster valve.

u will lose quite a bit of power if the bore of ur valve is small then ur barrel, for best results hve the valve bore asme as barrel bore :)

Find a 3" sprinkler valve. Come on, I dare ya.

Heh.

I made that gun a year ago, I didn't want to mess with the more powerful stuff like floating diaphragms and pistons, it was my first good pneumatic. Plus, its good for in town shooting! Less power.. assuming it is legal/don't have anal neighbors etc etc.

ok i didnt know you were using sprinkler valves, but you could just use two valves to the same barrel from the same chamber (or two different chamber if u like) and hook the two valves up to the same activation device, be it electric or pneumatic
