My gun is complete
See the design here,
and works great, but I can only get it up to 85 psi...and then the three inch end cap at the back starts to warp out and kinda fill up like a balloon. I was just wondering if this happens to other people, and how much psi would blow one out (it's PVC).

thanks

Are you sure it's pvc? Sounds like that might happen if it were styrene or cellular core or something. Does it have a rounded end? or flat?

Maybe i confused some of you when I said fills up like a ballon, what i mean by that is that the center of the end cap goes out like 1 cm from the sides of the end cap (look at diagrams, if they work///PS ignore the dots...)



Normal EndCap .....My End Cap at 85 psi

Is this normal, or are all my guns just weird, cause it happens on all my pneumatic launchers...

I have never heard of that happening, you may want to go with the endcaps that are domed out, or something, it would be really bad if it blew out.
